I just watched this episode with your question in mind, @GMGERRYMANDER, and I don't know how much significance I can find in it if you hadn't said anything. Since you did, though, I gather that he locked himself in by accident, so I think it was just a way to show that even though Alexander made the "heroic" decision, he was still a goof. If I had to assign significance to it, I would say that it makes Worf's acceptance of Alexander a little bit less clichéd. It wasn't that Alexander "became a warrior" that garnered his father's approval, in the sense that he didn't suddenly become a badass that he wasn't before. Worf accepted him despite him still being a screw-up, not because Alexander changed himself.
