Alexander Rozhenko

From Academic Kids

Alexander Rozhenko is a character in the Star Trek fictional universe.

Alexander Rozhenko, born in 2366 was the son of Worf and K'Ehleyr, although Worf did not know of Alexander's birth until 2367. Following K'Ehleyr's death the same year, Worf accepted Alexander, but sent him to Earth to be raised by Worf's adoptive parents, the Rozhenkos. After about a year, the Rozhenkos decided that Alexander needed his father, and he was sent to live with Worf on the Enterprise. The two usually did not see eye-to-eye, with Worf trying to help Alexander reach his Klingon potential and Alexander heavily resisting. In 2370, when Alexander was approaching the Age of Ascension, an adult Alexander from the future, at first identifying himself as K'mtar, came back in time to help young Alexander understand the importance of the ritual and accepting his Klingon heritage, although the young Alexander did not know that the man was in fact himself. Eventually, Alexander moved in with his grandparents again.

But Alexander grew unhappy on Earth and felt resentment against his father, as he felt abandoned. He enlisted in the Klingon Defense Force and was assigned to the Bird of Prey Rotarran; on this ship, he served with his father in the Dominion War in 2374. Despite the friction between the two, Alexander eventually joined his father in the House of Martok in an onboard ceremony. Alexander was soon transferred to the battle cruiser Ya'Vang. He acted as sword-bearer at his father's wedding to Jadzia Dax.

Alexander uses Worf's legal Earth surname, Rozhenko, though his father does not.

The rapid growth of Alexander during the course of TNG and DS9, from birth to the equivalent of a six year old in only one year, and then from a child to a rebellious teenager in only a few years, suggests that Klingons experience accelerated growth as children, though this has yet to be confirmed in any other canon story.

In order to try and rationalize Alexander's fast growth, some sources have suggested that he was actually born in 2359, however this is contradicted by the official biography for the character at startrek.com which gives the 2366 birthdate, and is therefore considered fanon rather than canon.

In the episode "Reunion", Alexander was played by Jon Steuer. In subsequent episodes as a child, he was played by Brian Bonsall. The teenaged Alexander was played by Marc Worden, and the adult Alexander from the future was played by James Sloyan.
