Title: A Fistful of Datas
In this episode, Alexander convinces his father, Worf, to accompany him on a trip to the “Ancient West” on the holodeck. Worf reluctantly plays the part of sheriff in the town of Deadwood, S.D., circa 1870. Alexander is his deputy, and Troi(whose father was fond of tales of the Old West) enthusiastically plays ‘the mysterious stranger’, who is “in cahoots with the Sheriff, [and]…mighty mean with that Winchester”.
Later, in their quarters, Alexander asks his father if he will ever want to visit Deadwood again, and smiles when Worf replies, “[t]he town of Deadwood may face danger again. If they do, they will need a sheriff… and a deputy.” After rendezvouing with the supply ship Biko, the Enterprise breaks orbit and heads off towards the sunset.
