SummaryEdit

Season 4 of TNG saw the show embracing the notion of serialized storylines. A recurring theme throughout the season is the notion of a brewing Duras-Romulan plot against the Federation, coupled with Worf's effort to reclaim his family honor. Both storylines were introduced in TNG Season 3's "Sins of the Father". Worf's discommendation is a major theme in "Family" and "The Drumhead", while his dishonor and the Duras-Romulan plot take center stage in the episodes "Reunion", "The Mind's Eye", and "Redemption".

A second recurring storyline in the season is the growth of Miles O'Brien as a character. His first and middle name are revealed in "Family", he marries in "Data's Day", his past is revealed in "The Wounded", and his marriage is explored in "In Theory".

Following "The Best of Both Worlds" cliffhanger, Season 4 was also known as the soft family-themed season. Indeed, the first post-Borg episode deals with Picard and Worf's family, the second with Data's. Worf's son Alexander appears later in the season, as does Natasha Yar's sister, and the Enterprise encounters an infant alien space entity.
