HEROES OF THE EMPIRE
THE LIFE AND TIMES OF
Son of Worf
by Frances B. Brock
Year of Birth: 2359
When Alexander was approximately ten years old, his foster grandmother returned him to Worf’s custody. He was becoming difficult for the older couple to control, and Alexander had developed behavior problems which the Rozhenko’s believed only his father, as a Klingon, would be able manage and change. Aboard the Enterprise, Alexander continued his disruptive ways, bullying his fellow students and lying to his teacher and his father. Worf was distressed that his wife had not chosen to teach young Alexander the Ways of the Warrior before her death. Worf finally sought help, and got it through Deanna Troi, who became very much attached to Alexander, as did Alexander to her. So much so, that she became his guardian in the event of Worf’s death.
His adolescence remained difficult for both he and his father. Alexander made it continually clear that he was not interested in becoming a Klingon Warrior. That was made abundantly clear when Worf would take him to the Holodeck and try to instruct him on the ways of the Bat’Leth other Klingon traditions. Worf seriously considered sending Alexander to a Klingon school, hoping that an environment of strict Klingon discipline would straighten the boy out. But ultimately decided against it, because he didn’t want to lose the love of his son. Alexander, too, even with his rebellious attitude, did not want to be sent away and leave his father. Worf offered him a challenge to remain on board the Enterprise with him and they would work and grow together. Alexander accepted this challenge.
In 2372, when Worf was transferred from the Enterprise to DS9, Alexander returned to live with his grandparents. Even with the pact they had made, Worf and Alexander’s relationship over those years had not changed and they were constantly battling over their many opposing principles.
Alexander Rozhenko, 2374
While in service on the Rotarran, General Martok invited Worf and Alexander to join his House. During this period, the relationship with his father improved, and Worf asked him to be Best Man at his wedding to Jadzia Dax.
Alexander ultimately learned the Ways of the Warrior to Worf’s surprise and delight, and was proud when Alexander assumed the Klingon name and identified himself as Alexander, Son of Worf.
