Matter Of Honor
A Matter of Honor is part of the major hit Star Trek. It is in fact the 8th part of the second season, which is entitled Star Trek: The Next Generation. This was first televised in 1989. The highlight in this episode is that Commander Riker is sent to a Klingon vessel during an officer exchange program.
The USS Enterprise arrives at Starbase 179 on stardate 42606.5. It reaches here to deliver a group of people who were assigned to an officer exchange program. They are welcomed by Commander Riker and Ensign Crusher. Wesley is quite shocked to meet an alien who looks much like Mordoc. Mordoc was a Benzite he trained along side before gaining entry to the Starfleet Academy on Relva VII.
However, Wesley realizes his error when he learns this creature's name is Ensign Mendon. The reason highlighted here for the resemblance between Mordoc and Mendon is that they belong to the same geostructure.
On the Enterprise, Worf tells Captain Picard about an unknown substance that is located on the port side dorsal fin. This substance is shown as a rusty-brown spot. Lt. Commander Data says it is a kind of bacteria, which seems to be reacting with chemicals in the ship's hull. Ensign Mendon intervenes and says he had also seen a similar spot on the Klingon vessel. However, he goes on to say that his analysis wasn't accomplished. Since Mendon had not mention of these details earlier, Picard says that on a Federation ship it is a top responsibility and priority to bring such details to the attention of concerned seniors. This is in order to prevent any chance of danger.
The Klingons sense the raise of shields that Riker says is standard procedure when entering an uncertain situation. Kargan is not convinced, but Riker then suggests that they fire at a distance of 40,000 kilometers, which will help to decrease the Enterprise's response time. Kargan is then pleased to see Riker fulfill his promise. He tells him to give the firing order. Riker agrees, but also says that Kargan's reasons for forcing this attack are not justified. While the distance is approached, Riker takes back the signaling device Worf handed him earlier. Kargan is curious and then asks whether it is a weapon. When he is handed the signal, Kargan accidentally triggers it off.
Later, Kargan goes back to the Pagh where he tackles Riker for tricking him with the signal. Riker decides to give up his command chair, and growls to challenge of his superior officer. Kargan takes him on, and he hoist Riker. Kargan then says says Get off my ship!. Riker abides by his wish, and says, Yes Captain. Later, the Enterprise shoots a beam that sterilizes the organisms that was on the Pagh's hull. While beaming back home, Riker is thankful to Worf for his little toy which served him well. Riker then carries on to the bridge where he says that his assignment was perhaps the shortest tour of duty in the Starfleet's history.
