EVERY JARADA IN THE ROOM WAS FIGHTING WITH A SAVAGERY THAT TOOK WORF ABACK
A Klingon warrior's greatest joy was in battle, but there was something unhealthy about this melee. The scene reminded Worf of sharks in a feeding frenzy, when the scent of blood sent them attacking anything, even one of their own. Those sharks were no more sane than these Jarada, and Worf knew he must report this to the captain immediatly.
Suddenly, the insectoid aliens turned and charged Worf. the Jarada, Worf noted, outnumbered him forty to one. With odds like that, only a fool or a berserker would fight if he had any alternative. Worf decided to take the only sane option available.
He snatched his blankets from his bench and tangled them into the legs of the two leading Jarada. They went down and several others piled into them. While the mob was sorting itself out, Worf executed a high-speed evacuation in search of a less exposed position...
The Jarada are a mysterious race of insectoid being with an extreme devotion to protocol. When this usually reclusive race offer to open diplomatic relations with the Federation, Captain Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise™ are quickly ordered to Jarada to negotiate the exchange of Ambassadors.
When the ship arrives, the Jarada seem uncharacteristically friendly. They invite Picard to send down members of his crew and negotiations proceed both quickly and smoothly. Suddenly, however, the Jarada change. They cut off Commander Riker and his away team from the U.S.S. Enterprise and initiate an unprovoked attack on the ship, Now Picard must unravel the aliens' mystery before it's too late for the away team -- and the U.S.S. Enterprise.
