    Trivia from a trivial brain: the only sense in which Peter David's Golden-Duck-winning Starfleet Academy juvenile Worf's First Adventure is in a different continuity from this story is that Nikolai's forename had not been established when PAD was writing, so he called the character Simon.

    The Star Trek: The Next Generation Starfleet Academy books are really interesting to me because IIRC they posit the Enterprise crew all knew each other from their Academy days and were already old friends by the time of "Encounter at Farpoint". I may have to take a look at that series during the aforementioned post-season glut of Things That Need Doing.

    It's weird, there's a lot of these that I can't recall, but the second you mentioned Worf's brother, this entire episode came back to me, despite the fact that the synopsis in my head shouts "Really fucking boring Prime Directive episode"

    Well, different things are memorable (or unmemorable) to different people for different reasons.
