Episode propaganda

Riker is offered a captain's position and the Enterprise heads for Starbase Montgomery for his briefing. There, Riker is visibly shaken when he meets the father (Mitchell Ryan as Kyle Riker) he hasn't seen for 15 years. This meeting forces Riker into making a decision about his future. Meanwhile, Worf is approaching the tenth anniversary of his age of ascension. His friends decide to use the holodeck to help him celebrate, with startling results.

Intelligence report

FYI: In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of Daedalus who, while escaping from Crete with his father (using the wings Daedalus had made) flew too close to the sun, melting the wax in his wings and fell into the Aegean Sea and drowned. The title refers to sons who ignore the advice of their fathers and suffer the consequences.
