Top 20 Star Trek Next Generation Cast You Must Know

Brian Bonsall as Alexander Rozhenko, Worf’s son

Alexander, is known greatly as a member of Worf’s family, and a character is a member of the Rozhenko family. He was born in the Klingon Empire on the 43rd day of Maktag. His mother died when he was young and he was raised on Earth by his grandparents, and later by his father aboard the USS Enterprise-D. As he grew, he learned to respect his Klingon roots and joined the Klingon Defense Force.

Alexander was conceived during a brief encounter between Worf and K’Ehleyr when the ambassador came aboard the USS Enterprise-D in an effort to defuse a potential crisis presented by the return of a Klingon D7 class battle cruiser IKS T’Ong that had been dispatched decades before as a sleeper ship. (TNG: “The Emissary”) After the crisis was successfully resolved, K’Ehleyr departed the Enterprise. She concealed her pregnancy and the birth of Alexander from Worf, finally revealing approximately one year later when she returned to the Enterprise as part of a contingent representing K’mpec in his efforts to persuade Jean-Luc Picard to act as the Arbiter of Succession for the Klingon Empire.

Until that point, Alexander had lived with his mother, not knowing who his father was. Despite a coy attitude meant to antagonize Worf, K’Ehleyr wanted Worf to acknowledge Alexander as his son. It would be great to take a look down his appearances in STAR TREK.
