Serpents Among the Ruins
The Tomed Incident occurs, resulting in the destruction of the Romulan flagship Tomed, the starship Agamemnon, and multiple outposts in the Foxtrot Sector near the Neutral Zone. Over 4,000 lives are believed lost. Unbeknownst to the general populace, the incident is the culmination of a series of covert operations-including the failed hyperwarp testing conducted by the prototype U.S.S. Universe--orchestrated by Captain John Harriman of the U.S.S. Enterprise and Admiral John Blackjack Harriman, and in fact very few lives are truly lost. This remains a carefully guarded secret. The incident breaks a cycle of escalating tensions among the Federation, Klingons, and Romulans. In its wake, the Treaty of Algeron is signed by all three powers. Among its key provisions is that the Federation will not further develop cloaking technology beyond its current state, and the Romulans will withdraw from the occupied Koltaari homeworld and the Koltaari begin receiving Federation aid. Following the signing of the treaty, the Romulans retreat to their space, close their borders, and "disappear" for more than 50 years. The reason for the disappearance is unknown to the Federation (extended conflict with the Taurhai Unity).

Enterprise-D delivers the Antican and Selay delegations to Parliament for their conference to consider their petitions for admission to the Federation.
Enterprise-D delivers a party of Earth colonists to the Strnad system. Shortly thereafter, ship's personnel discover another Class M planet in the adjoining Rubicun system. This second planet, Rubicun III, is inhabited by a peaceful humanoid species known as the Edo and is deemed sutiable for shore leave by Enterprise-D.
While on shore leave in Rubicun III, acting Ensign Wesley Crusher accidentally violates a minor local law, the penalty for which is death. Attempts to negotiate Crusher's release are hampered by the presence of a powerful noncorporeal space-borne entity which the edo worship as a god. Captain Picard violates the Prime Directive of noninterference in violating local laws to secure Crusher's release.
Rubicun III's shore leave status is revoked.
Ferengi vessel contacts U.S.S. Enterprise-D to request a meeting in the Xendi Sabu system. Enterprise-D waits at the rendezvous point for three days, with no other response from the Ferengi than "stand by". In an apparently unrelated development, Captain Picard suffers from an unusually painful series of headaches.
Ferengi DaiMon Bok, aboard a Ferengi vessel at the Xendi Sabu system, offers a gift to Captain Picard: The hulk of Picard's former command, U.S.S. Stargazer. Examination of records aboard Stargazer reveals apparently damning evidence suggesting Picard had attacked a Ferengi spacecraft some nine years ago in "The Battle of Maxia" in which the Stargazer was believed destroyed. The gift is found to be an elaborate ploy by Bok to gain revenge on Picard for the latter's involvement in the battle, during which Bok's son, commanding the Ferengi spacecraft, was killed. Bok is also discovered to have falsified the Stargazer records and to have attempted to injure Picard through the use of an illegal Ferengi mind control device.

ST:TNG The Space Between: History Lesson
Karnas, a leader on planet Moradin IV, reports that terrorists have seized hostages including Federation Ambassador Hawkins. He urgently requests the aid of Starfleet Admiral Mark Jameson, noting a terrorist threat to kill the hostages if Jameson does not intervene in six days.
Enterprise-D stops at planet Persephone V to pick up Admiral Mark Jameson and his wife Anne for transport to Moradin IV to negotiate the release of Federation hostages. Upon arrival at Moradin IV, Jameson reveals that his celebrated negotiations (which led to the release of other Federation hostages by Karnas some 45 years ago) was in fact a weapons-for-hostages deal that resulted in a bloody civil war which only ended five years ago. It is learned that Karnas has staged the entire crisis as a means of exacting retribution on Jameson for exacerbating the conflict. Jameson, suffering from the effects of a youth drug obtained on planet Cerebus III, dies at Moradin IV after convincing Karnas to release the hostages.
Enterprise-D goes to planet Isis III.

Counselor Troi returns to Enterprise-D.
At Starbase 74, orbiting Tarsas III, Enterprise-D is scheduled for maintenance layover. Service and upgrades are performed by a special team from planet Bynaus. While in dock, a reported malfunction threatening a potentially catastrophic failure of Enterprise-D's antimatter containment fields. As a result, all crew members are evacuated and the ship is removed by the starbase. The incident is later learned to have been engineered by the Binars in an effort to appropriate the starship for use for use in restarting their home planet's emp-damaged main computer system in the Beta Magellan system after that star went supernova. Unknown at the time, the Bynar tampering with the Enterprise-D holodeck systems would cause a malfunction during the Jarada diplomatic mission later.
Relations are reopened with the Jarada via diplomatic mission by the Enterprise-D, despite a delay caused by a holodeck malfunction which traps Picard and other crew members in an ongoing program. The contact is ultimately successful in large part because of Captain Picard's precise enunciation of a formal Jaradan greeting.
The Enterprise-D visits Tripoli IX.

U.S.S. Enterprise discovers the mythical planet of Aldea, which had been shielded from visibility in the Epsilon Mynos system. The planet's inhabitants, found to be a race of advanced society of artisans, use their sophisticated transporter technology to abduct the children of Enterprise-D crew members in an attempt to reestablish their race after damage to their ozone layer caused radiation exposure which rendered them infertile. Diplomatic efforts succeed in securing the release of the children, the Aldean shielding system is dismantled and the ozone layer reseeded, a move expected to reverse the sterility of the Aldean people.
Lieutenant Commander Dexter Remmick of the Starfleet inspector general's office conducts a thorough investigation of the Enterprise-D and it's personnel while the ship is at the Relva VII Starfleet facility. This is a prelude to Picard being offered the job of commandant of Starfleet Academy by Admiral Gregory Quinn. Quinn's offer is coupled with a plea based upon his suspicions that problems exist deep within the structure of Starfleet itself. Picard declines the offer, citing his belief that he can better serve the interests of the Federation as captain of the Enterprise-D.
Enterprise-D travels to Algeron IV.

Further investigation indicates these weapons systems were responsible for the destruction of the Drake as well as for the entire Minosian culture.
Survivors (Chapters 2, 4 & 6-11)
Pathways (Chapter 6, Section 5)
Enterprise-D responds to a distress call while studying solar flares at the Delos system. The call originates from the Sanction, a disabled Ornaran freighter transporting medical supplies of Felicium from planet Brekka to planet Ornara in order to keep a 200-year-old plague in check. Investigation reveals the drug to be a highly addictive narcotic, no longer necessary for medical reasons. The Prime Directive prevents Picard from interfering with the mission, and from revealing to the Ornarans the exploitative nature of their dealings with the Brekka for the addictive substance.
The Ambassador Hardin-class heavy cruiser USS Horatio Ballantrye is destroyed in the line of duty.

Manheim suffers nerochemical injury, until data is successful in repairing the temporal anomaly caused by the former's experiments.
Enterprise-D goes to sarona VIII for shore leave.
The Decker-class class X destroyer USS J.L. Lambert was decommissioned and scrapped.
Admiral Norah Satie uncovers evidence of a widespread alien conspiracy infiltrating Starfleet Command. Among the evidence is a series of unusual occurences, including a number of unusual orders, high-ranking officials backing irrational orders, the evacuation of Starbase 12 for two days, and the apparently accidental deaths of McKinney, Ryan Sipe, and Onna Karapleedeez. Satie enlists the assistance of key personnel, including captains Walter Keel, Tryla Scott, and Rixx to counter the incursion.
Enterprise-D assigned to scientific investigation on planet Pacifica.
Mission to Pacifia is interrupted when Captain Picard receives an urgent request from Starship Horatio captain Walter Keel for a covert meeting at planetoid Dytallix B. Also present at the meeting are Captain Tryla Scott of the U.S.S. Renegade, and Captain Rixx of the U.S.S. Thomas Paine. At the planetoid, Keel informs Picard of Satie's suspicions. Shortly after the meeting, the Horatio is destroyed with all hands lost.
Scott Fack and O'Toole return to the USS Artemis from a conference to report strange goings-on. The Artemis attempts to return to Federation territory but its warp coils were sabotaged, allowing a sneak-attack by a then-unknown assailant, killing nearly 80% of the Artemis crew. John Sill, Anne Cobry and Scott Fack are amongst the survivors, escaping in escape pods. As they flee, it appears the Artemis explodes. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "False Security", "Lady Lazarus")
Picard pursues the investigation of Keel's report by taking the Enterprise-D to Earth and requesting a meeting at Starfleet Command. Satie's suspicions are borne out when Picard and Riker discover that key Starfleet personnel (including Lieutenant Commander remmick and Admiral Quinn) are being controlled by an extragalactic intelligence. The feared invasion is forestalled when the intelligence is thwarted and its control neutralized. The neural "blue gill" parasites transmit a homing message before they are killed.
The USS Saratoga rescues the Artemis survivors and preliminary scans reveal the wreckage does not match the total volume of the Artemis. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "False Security", "Lady Lazarus")
Scott Fack meets Jason Athelstan, who is stationed aboard the Saratoga. The two decide to give a relationship a go. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Lady Lazarus"; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Isolation", "An Innocent Time")

Communications are lost with Federation starbases in sector 3-0, near the Romulan Neutral Zone. Two outposts are reported destroyed. Captain Picard attends an emergency conference at Starbase 718 to discuss the possibility of an emerging Romulan threat in the wake of the loss. Awaiting Picard's return, Lieutenant Commander Data discovers an apparent derelict spacecraft, the S.S. Birdseye, containing the cryogenically frozen remains of Humans who died in the late 20th century. Three are successfully revived because medical advances in the intervening years have rendered their maladies curable. These individuals, named Claire Raymond, Sonny Clemons, and Ralph Offenhouse, are later returned to Erath aboard the U.S.S. Charleston. Raymond will become a history teacher, while Clemons attempts to reestablish his musical career. Offenhouse will become an ambassador and mediator, making a name for himself in dealings with the Ferengi.
Federation outposts at Delta Zero Five and Tarod IX are discovered to have been destroyed not by Romulans, but by an unknown agency that literally scooped the outposts off their planetary surfaces. This agency is later revealed to be the Borg, suggesting a Borg presence near Federation space significantly earlier than 2367. Investigating these disappearances, the Enterprise-D makes contact with the Romulans for the first time since the Tomed incident of 2311.

Starbase 336 receives an automated transmission from the T'Ong, a Kilngon sleeper ship launched in 2290, now returning to Klingon space. Special Federation emissary K'Ehleyr is dispatched to the Enterprise-D with orders to intercept the T'Ong near the Boradis system before its crew automatically revived. The Enterprise mission is based on fears the the T'Ong crew, launched prior to the Khitomer peace conference of 2293, still believes that a state of war exists between the federation and
the Klingon Empire. K'Ehleyr's orders include the option to destroy the T'Ong and its crew if necessary, but Captain Picard opposes this course. Instead, he and Lieutenant Worf devise an alternate strategy in which Worf poses as Enterprise-D captain long enough to order the T'Ong crew to accept K'Ehleyr as their commander.
During the T'Ong crisis, emissary K'Ehleyr and Enterprise-D security chief Worf renew and old romantic relationship, although K'Ehleyr declines to take the Klingon oath of marriage. Unknown to Worf at the time, their liaison results in the conception of a child.

Parts of a Vulcan spacecraft, concealed in crates marked as medical supplies, are found among the debris. The parts are sent to Vulcan for identification, and USS Enterprise-D personnel are later asked to assist.
Starfleet Intelligence reports that Ambassador Spock, missing for nearly three weeks, has been sighted on Romulus. The possiblility of his defection is of great concern.
Enterprise-D terraforming mission to Doraf I is canceled, with the ship being recalled to Starbase 234 by Admiral Brackett.
At Ambassador Spock's request, Captain Picard and Lt. Commander Data of the Enterprise pursue him to Romulus to seek out Romulan senator Pardek. Despite soem reluctance, Klingon High Council leader Gowron authorizes use of a Klingon Bird of Prey to transport the two officers to their destination. Picard discovers that the klingon's reluctance is due to Gowron's having editorialized Kilngon history to downplay recent Federation assistance in the recent Kligon civil war.
Ambassador Sarek of Vulcan dies from bendii syndrome at his home at the age of 203. He is survived by his wife, Perrin, and his son, Spock.
The Amazing Stories: Last Words
Debris recovered from a recently crashed Ferengi vessel show that unknown agents (possibly Ferengi) have been smuggling Vulcan spacecraft components to an unknown destination. The components are traced back to a decommissioned Vulcan ship, the T'Pau, sent four years prior to the surplus depot at Qualor II. Further investigation reveals that the T'Pau was removed under mysterious circumstances, likely by an unidentified spacecraft detected at the depot - a vessel reported to have apparently self-destructed. The t'Pau is traced to a Barolian freighter at Galordon Core, near the Romulan Neutral Zone.
It is subsequently discovered that the interest was a ruse concocted by Sela to cover a Romulan invasion of Vulcan. The Romulan plan is exposed and foiled. The invasion takes the form of three stolen Vulcan ships, including the T'Pau. All three ships are self-destructed to avoid their capture.
Ambassador Spock remains on Romulus to work with underground Romulan citizen groups which support a true reunification.

A type-C asteroid impacts on the planet Penthara IV. Although the asteroid strikes an uninhabited continent, there is considerable concern that dust clouds raised by the impact may cause disastrous global cooling.
Enterprise-D proceeding to planet Penthara IV, encounters a time/space distortion, followed by the appearance of an individual identifying himself as Dr. Berlinghoff Rasmussen, a researcher from the late 26th century. He is later discovered to be a fraud, a failed inventor from the past turned temporal thief.
Upon arrival at Penthara IV, Enterprise-D personnel attempt to counter the planetary albedo by using ship's phasers to unleash massive subterranean pockets of CO2 into the atmosphere. The attempt fails, exacerbating the original problem. A second attempt successfully employs the ship to employ a massive electrostatic discharge to vaporize the dust particles in the Pentharan atmosphere, then directing the resulting energy surge harmlessly into space.
Enterprise-D goes to Starbase 214 to turn Rasmussen over to authorities.
Helena Rozhenko, upon hearing that the Enterprise-D is in the sector, secures passage aboard the transport vessel Milan for herself and Worf's son, Alexander. The Milan will intercept the Enterprise, where Helena will implore Worf to take custody of Alexander, as the child is having trouble adjusting to life on Earth. Worf complies.

Starbase 514 loses contact with the research vessel SS Vico, on a mission to explore the interior of a black cluster. Enterprise-D is assigned to investigate the disappearance.
The SS Vico is located inside the black cluster, severely damaged and with only one survivor, a young boy named Timothy. Timothy has been severely traumatized by the tragedy, but is helped by Lieutenant Commander Data and Counselor Deanna Troi. The Enterprise-D is nearly destroyed by gravitational distortions which damaged the Vico, but Timothy's recollection of the ship's final moments are instrumental in devising a means to avoid that fate.
While on a mapping survey mission, the Enterprise-D is assigned to transport a deligation of Ullians to planet Kaidra IV. The Ullians, conducting a research project to catalog telepathically retrieved memories from individuals on several planets, are linked to a series of unexplained neurological disorders resembling Iresine syndrome reported in several Enterprise crew members. One Ullian, Jev, is determined to be responsible, the disorders being the hallmark of telepathic rape, and he is returned to Ullian authorities for prosecution and rehabilitation.

A stellar core fragment, believed to be from a disintegrated neutron star, is detected in the Moab sector. Enterprise-D is diverted to monitor possible disruption of planetary systems in the sector.
While tracking the errrant stellar core fragment, Enterprise-D discovers a previously unknown Human colony on Moab IV, near the fragment's trajectory. Though the colony is threatened, authorities there decline aid. An arrangement is made which saves the colony with minimal
outside contamination to the carefully-balanced biosphere. Unfortunately, this contact inspires the defection of 23 colonists to leave Moab IV and secure passage on the Enterprise-D.
On a mission to investigate a series of subspace signals indicating possible intelligent life in the Epsilon Silar system, the Enterprise-D is ambushed by what is later identified as a Satarran vessel. The attack
employs a sophisticated energy weapon that disrupts starship communication systems, selectively damages and alters computer records, and erases the identities and short-term memories of all starship personnel. The Satarran vessel is believed to have self-destructed immediately after the attack. The attack is supplemented with falsified computer records which identify a Satarran agent, presumably from the destroyed ship, as Executive Officer Kieran MacDuff and also indicate that the Federation is currently at war with a
race called the Lysian Alliance, the Enterprise-D's mission being to destroy the enemy's military command center. Complying with the fraudulent Starfleet orders, Enterprise-D engages and destroys a tactically inferior Lysian spacecraft, resulting in the deaths of
approximately 53 Lysians. Troubled by the extreme selectiveness of the damage to the ship's records, Captain Picard refuses to destroy the Lysian base. Enterprise-D personnel subsequently learn of the

The Last Stand
Enterprise-D responds to a distress call from an unexplored Class-M moon of planet Mab-Bu VI. Due to electromagnetic disturbances in the moon's atmosphere, transporter use is not advised, and a shuttlepod piloted by Commander William Riker, along with Lieutenant Commander Data and Counselor Troi, is sent to investigate. Unexpectedly severe storms force the craft down on the surface, and a rescue mission effected by Chief O'Brien is successful in recovering the crew. Upon their return to the Enterprise-D, O'Brien, Data, and Troi exhibit aberrant behavior, blockading themselves in the Ten Forward Lounge with hostages. The crew determines that this behavior is the result of control by alien life-forms, later learned to be convicted criminals, exiled to Mab-Bu VI some 500 years ago from the Ux-Mal system. Captain Picard secures an agreement with the Ux-Mal convicts to surrender and
return to the moon's surface.
Enterprise-D en route to Sector 37628 for survey mission, but is diverted upon receipt of a distress call from the transport ship Denver, which had struck a gravitic mine leftover from the Cardassian war, resulting in heavy damage many injuries.
Lieutenant Worf is crippled by an accident in a cargo bay, resulting in the crushing of his spinal cord and a prognosis of permanent paralysis. Enterprise CMO Dr. Beverly Crusher consults Dr. Toby Russell, a
neurogeneticist. Russell proposes an experimental genetronic replication techinique that is successful in replacing Worf's spinal column and restoring virtually all of his muscular function. Crusher expresses objections to Russell's ise of experimental procedures in a manner that she characterizes as taking unethical risks with patients' lives.
Enterprise-D drops off survivors of the Denver accident, then proceeds to its survey mission at Sector 37628.
Enterprise-D at the planet J'naii to aid in the search for a missing J'naii spacecraft. A survey conducted by Commander William Riker and J'naii pilot Soren is able to map the anomalous null space pockets in the J'naii system. Shortly thereafter, a rescue attempt is successful in retrieving the crew of the J'naii craft. The J'naii government expresses gratitude for the Starfleet aid, but later accuses Soren of aberrant
behavior, alleging a socially unacceptable sexual relationship with commander Riker. Captain Picard, citing Prime Directive considerations, refuses to intervene with the J'naii judiciary in the matter. Soren is found guilty and is rehabilitated, restoring one to social norms in accordance with local laws.

At the Academy, an investigation is convened by Superintendent Admiral Brand to determine the cause of the accident that claimed the life of cadet Joshua Albert. Initial testimony from Nova Squadron points to pilot error, which is inconsistent with available telemetric data. A statement by Cadet Wesley Crusher reveals the cause of the crash to be an unauthorized attempt to perform a Kolvoord Starburst, a maneuver
prohibited due to its extreme risk. Nova Squadron leader Nick Locarno is expelled, and the remaining three members (including Bajoran Cadet Ensign Seto) are reprimanded, their academic credits for the year voided.

Enterprise-D charts six star systems in the Argolis cluster as a prelude to possible colonization. A distress signal from a Borg scout craft is detected, and investigation results in the recovery of a single Borg drone, severed from the Collective. Analysis of the drone yields a possible defense against the Hive in the form of an invasive program believed capable of destroying the entire Borg race. When the drone, dubbed Hugh by Geordi La Forge, begins to exhibit individuality, the plan is abandoned and Hugh is ordered returned to the crash site by Captain Picard. He is later returned to the Collective. Geordi La Forge later
reports his belief that Hugh has retained his newfound identity despite reassimilation.
Unknown at the time, Hugh's return causes widespread systems problems in the Borg, resulting in many drones simply being cut off from the Collective.

Over ten million Bajorans had been killed by Cardassian forces during the occupation. Prior to leaving Bajor, Cardassian troops poison much of the planet's farmlands.
Abandoned into Bajoran hands is the Cardassian mining station Terok Nor, orbiting the planet Bajor. The station had been commanded by Gul Dukat, prefect of the region. During the withdrawalm Cardassian forces
vandalize much of the station, causing many station residents to flee. Retreating Cardassian troops also cause massive damage to cities on bajor. Still in Cardassian possession are eight revered Bajoran religious artifacts known as the Tears of the Prophets. The only Cardassian citizen left on terok Nor is exiled former intelligence agent Elim Garak, who now runs the tailor shop on the station's Promenade.
During the withdrawal, Cardassian authorities inexplicably order numerous Cardassian war orphans to be abandoned. Many of these orphans are cared for in Bajoran orphanages, amd some of them are adopted by Bajoran families.
Captain Jellico determines that the Cardassians have been staging spacecraft in the McAllister C-5 nebula in preparation for an attack on planet Minos Korva in Federation space. Jellico conducts a preemptive strike against the attack force, forcing the Cardassians to withdraw and to release Picard from Cardassian custody. Picard had been the victim of torture in violation of the Seldoris IV convention. Once returned to the
Enterprise-D, Picard reassumes command of that starship.
Jellico departs on the USS Cairo.

Seven Deadly Sins: Freedom Angst
The Bajoran provisional government asks Starfleet to establish a Federation presence in the Bajoran system following the withdrawal of Cardassian occupational forces. Commander Benjamin Sisko is assigned to command station Terok Nor, now designated by Starfleet as Deep Space 9. Sisko's assignment is at the recommendation of
Admiral Leyton, who had been Sisko's commanding officer aboard the USS Okinawa. Kira Nerys is ranked as major in the reformed Bajoran militia. At Sisko's request, a Bajoran national, Kira Nerys, is assigned to the station by the Bajoran government to serve as their liaison and as Sisko's second-in-command. Sisko had been previously assigned to Starfleet's Utopia Planitia Yards on Mars. Kira Nerys has Odo reappointed chief of security on Deep Space 9. The provisional government remains dangerously unstable, subject to violent dissent within the Bajoran people themselves; the First Minister is killed,
apparently by Bajoran Kohn-Ma terrorists.
While en route to his new posting at DS9, Commander Ben Sisko and his son, Jake, visit the planet known as Blue Horizon for a few hours. The planet is an extraordinary example of the art and science of terraforming.
Enterprise-D travels to DS9. Miles O'Brien, newly transferred as chief operations officer for the station, immediately begins work to restore systems stripped by the departing Cardassian forces. O'Brien is relocating to DS9 along with his wife Keiko, and their daughter Molly. Also transported to DS9 aboard the Enterprise-D are three runabouts, the Rio Grande, the Yangtzee Kiang, and the Ganges.
Commander Benjamin Sisko arrives at Deep Space 9, finding the station in a shambles. Sisko pressures local business leaders to remain at the station in an effort to reverse the migration away from the station.
Sisko discovers an artifically-created stable wormhole in the nearby Denorios Belt in the Bajoran system, linking the Alpha Quadrant to the distant Gamma Quadrant. According to the Bajoran spiritual leader Kai Opaka, alien life-forms discovered by Sisko in the wormhole are in fulfillment of Bajoran prophesy, casting Sisko into the role of what Bajorans call the Emissary. In the Bajoran religious faith, the emergence of the Emissary is a deeply significant event. The discovery of the wormhole has important economic implications for Bajor, since it means that Bajor will become a major center for interstellar commerce to the Gamma Quadrant.
Cardassian forces attempt to reclaim part of the Bajoran system, an effort made more urgent for both sides with the discovery of the stable wormhole, but they are thwarted when DS9 is relocated to the Denorios Belt, thus reinforcing Bajor's claim on the wormhole.
Dr. Julian Bashir and Lieutenant Jadzia Dax are assigned to DS9, arriving aboard the starship Cochrane.
The Enterprise-D departs DS9, traveling to the Detrian system for a scientific assignment.

Simultaneously, analysis of the Klingon ship's logs reveals that prior to its destruction, a mutiny had occurred. It is learned that the Toh'Kaht had been carrying telepathic archive devices, artifacts from a planet in the Gamma Quadrant. Evidently, telepathic energy from these devices had taken over the minds of the Klingon crew, causing them to reenact an acient power struggle that destroyed a civilization of people that called themselves the Saltah'na, and the same telepathic energy is now affecting DS9 personnel. Once station personnel realize this, they force the Saltah'na telepathic energy to disperse harmlessly into open space.

Alien life-forms from another time-space continuum mistake the artificial quantum singularity in the engine system of a Romulan warbird for a naturally-occuring black hole. The aliens, which use black holes to incubate their young, lay eggs in the warbird's engine. The presence of the alien embryos causes a failure in the warbird's engine core.
The Starship Enterprise-D responds to a distress call from a Romulan warbird that has experienced a serious power failure. Enterprise-D personnel attempt to render aid by establishing a power transfer beam between their ship and the crippled Romulan craft. During the power transfer, both ships experience a severe disruption of the time-space continuum.
Returning to the Enterprise-D via runabout, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and company observe that the enterprise-D and the Romulan warbird appear to be "frozen" in time, with the Enterprise-D in the midst of a disastrous explosion. Investigating the phenomenon aboard both ships, it is learned that the power transfer provided by the Enterprise-D was threatening the lives of the alien embryos incubating in the warbird's engine core. Picard and crew are able to interrupt the power transfer beam, thereby permitting the aliens to rescue their young from the Romulan engine, and are successful in restoring the flow of time so that the Enterprise-D is not destroyed in the process.
The Starship Enterprise-D travels to the Romulan Neutral Zone, where it returns the crew of the Romulan warbird.
A Cardassian national, believed to be Gul Darhe'el, the former commander of the infamous Gallitep forced labor camp, is detained at station DS9. Investigation by Major Kira Nerys determines, however, that the individual in question is in fact Aamin Marritza, who served under darhe'el at Gallitep 12 years ago. Marritza had experienced tremendous sorrow and guilt over his inability to stop the atrocities at Galitep, and so had devised an elaborate scheme whereby he would impersonate the now-dead Darhe'el, and confess to Darhe'el's crimes. Kira orders Marritza freed, but he is subsequently murdered by a Bajoran national. Marritza died at the hand of a man who hated him only because he was born Cardassian.

Strange New Worlds V: The Farewell Gift
The Federation science outpost on planet Ohniaka III is attacked by an unknown force.
The Starship Enterprise-D responds to the distress call from Ohniaka III, learns that the attack was made by a Borg spacecraft of previously unknown design. Enterprise-D personnel report that the Borg at Ohniaka station are exhibiting uncharacteristic behavior and tactics.
After the encounter, Lieutenant Commander Data reports that at Ohniaka, he experienced a brief but powerful emotional outburst, this despite the fact that his systems and software do not have the capacity for human emotions. Data experiences a second unexplained emotional outburst when interrogating a Borg individual named Crosis, captured after a Borg attack on another colony. Shortly thereafter, Crosis and Data flee from the Enterprise-D by stealing a shuttlecraft.
Pursuing Data and Crosis, the Enterprise-D follows the shuttle through a Borg transwarp conduit through subspace to a planet in the Delta Quadrant on which is located a major Borg stronghold. Data is found on the planet, on the company of his brother, Lore, who is leader of these Borg.
Dr. Beverly Crusher, as senior officer aboard the Enterprise-D, commands the skelton crew remaining on the ship while the majority of the crew engages in a planetside search for Data.
Ensign Aquino, a Starfleet engineer assigned to station DS9, is killed. His death is initiallly believed to be accidental, but it is later found that he
had apparently been murdered because he had stumbled onto part of a plot to murder Vedek Bareil.
Vedek Winn, a politically conservative contender to replace Bajoran religious leader Kai Opaka, arrives unannounced at station DS9.
Vedek Winn at station DS9, protests what she characterizes as "blasphemous" teachings of scientific theories at the station's primary classroom. Her protests trigger a controversy between the Bajoran and Federation population of the station. When another Bajoran religious leader, Vedek Bareil, arrives at DS9 to try to calm the situation, an unsuccessful assassination attempt is made on his life. Station negineering staff member Neela, a Bajoran national, is held in the attempt.
It is strongly suspected, although not proven, that the entire protest was engineered by Winn to set up the assassination attempt, an apparent effort to eliminate Bariel as a candidate to become Bajor's next kai, a position for which Winn is also a contender.

TNG: Engines of Destiny (Chapters 4-7, & 29)
At Lore's Borg stronghold in the Delta Quadrant, it is learned that Lore has assumed the role of leader among a group of Borg that gained a sense of individuality from contact with the Borg individual named Hugh. Lore's effectiveness as leader is made possible because of the emotion chip that he had stolen over two years prior from his creator, Dr. Soong, which enables him to manipulate the emotional inexperience of the Borg. Lore is also able to create powerful emotions in his brother, Data, and uses those emotions to control him as well. Lore hopes to use Data and the Borg to embark upon a campaign of conquest, but he is prevented from doing so when Enterprise-D personnel assist the Borg named Hugh in resisting Lore's destructive control. Shortly thereafter, Lore is dismantled, but Data manages to recover their father's emotion chip.

TNG: Blaze of Glory
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, investigating a series of recent raids on ancient Romulan archaeological sites, is captured by mercenaries at a bar on planet Dessica II. Eyewitnesses to the incident report that Picard was killed by a blast from an energy weapon.
Picard's captors were, in fact, the mercenaries who had been responsible for the raids on archaeological sites in the Taugan sector. Picard manages to convince them that he is a smuggler named Galen and offers his services to help appraise the stolen artifacts.
A minister of the Bajoran provisional government is reported to have been attacked and beaten. The attack is believed to be the work of the Circle, whose acts of violence in the streets of Bajor have increased dramatically.
Terrorist activity sponsored by the Circle continues to escalate on Bajor and on DS9. Despite efforts by the provisional government to suppress the violence, the Circle appears to operate with impunity. Evidence is uncovered that the Circle is obtaining weapons from Kressari agents, and further investigation suggests that the Kressari are acting as intermediaries for Cardassian forces seeking to destabliize the Bajoran goverment.
Kira Nerys accepts an invitation to study at Vedek Bariel's temple and experiences the third orb, the orb of prophesy and change. She is kidnapped by Circle agents but later freed by DS9 personnel after learning that the Circle, under the covert leadership of Minister Jaro Essa, plans to attempt a coup d'etat to depose the Bajoran provisional government.
Starfleet admiral Chekote, upon being informed of the deteriorating situation on Bajor, and citing Prime Directive prohibitions against involvement in what is essentially a local dispute, orders the withdrawal of all Starfleet personnel from DS9.
Enterprise-D personnel investigate the disappearance of Captain Jean-Luc Picard at planet Dessica II.
Evidence gathered at planet Dessica II suggests that Captain Jean-Luc Picard had been killed by a blast from an energy weapon, and Commander William Riker receives authorization to place the Enterprise-D on detached duty to further investigate the incident.

DS9: The Big Game
Starfleet and other personnel evacuate station DS9 as Circle forces arrive to take control of the facility, part of the Circle attempt to seize power from the Bajoran provisional government. A handful of Starfleet personnel remain aboard DS9 in violation of orders and are successful in retaking the station from circle operatives, although Bajoran resistance leader Li Nalas is killed in the operation.
Major Kira Nerys is successful in eluding Bajoran forces and presents evidence to the Bajoran Chamber of Ministers linking the Circle and Minister Jaro Essa to secret Cardassian weapon shipments, discrediting the Circle, and thwarting Jaro's attempted coup d'etat. Kira is subsequently reassigned to DS9.
Starfleet personnel return to DS9 as Starfleet reassumes administration of the facility.
Picard and Riker infiltrate Baran's crew in order to discover the reason for Baran's raids on Romulan archaeological sites. They learn that Baran has been employed by a militant Vulcan separatist group, seeking to reassemble the pieces of the Stone of Gol. The ancient artifact, long thought to be mere myth, is found to be a functional psionic resonator weapon that enables the bearer to kill telepathically. Picard and Riker, with assistance from Enterprise-D personnel, are successful in apprehending Tallera, a member of the separatist group who had masterminded the operation. The psionic resonator is turned over to Vulcan security minister Satok, who promises that it will be destroyed.
Quark arranges for a Klingon operative named Yeto to visit station DS9 in order to purchase liquid data chains. In preparation for the transaction, Quark agrees to plant an illicit device to defeat station security sensors so that Yeto's arrival will not be detected.
A violent plasma storm in the Bajoran star system forces evacuation of station DS9, leaving behind only a skeleton crew aboard the station.
DS9 station personnel render aid to the Ekina, a small space vessel reportedly damaged by the plasma storm. Their arrival is a ruse arranged by Quark for the sale of liquid data chains. The sale itself is quickly found to be a cover for Yeto's real objective: Yeto has delivered unsuccessful Trill initiate Verad to the station, where he intends to steal the Dax symbiont from Jadzia. Although Verad is successful in forcing the removal of the symbiont from Jadzia and its implantation into himself, Verad is thereafter overpowered, and the Dax symbiont is returned to its rightful host.
Verad and his accomplices are turned over to the authorities.

Commander Data finds that his dream-inducing program is now generating nightmares, which he finds to be an unsettling experience. Shortly thereafter, Data finds himself having "waking dreams", in which he is unable to control his behavior. In one such waking dream, data stabs and severely injures Counselor Deanna Troi. It is learned that the nightmares are caused by interphasic parasites that came aboard the ship in the new warp core, and that these life-forms are making operation of the warp drive system impossible. Once the nature of the parasites is understood, they are eradicated from the ship with a high-frequency interphasic sweep.
Enterprise-D captain Jean-Luc Picard is honored with an invitation from Admiral Nakamura to attend Starfleet's annual Admiral's banquet at Starbase 219. Unfortunately, the technical difficulties with the ship's new warp core make it impossible for Picard to attend.
A new warp conduit is replicated by the Enterise-D engineering staff, replacing the parasite-infested unit installed at Starbase 84.
Seven Deadly Sins: Work Is Hard
Voyager: Pathways (Chapter 6, Sections 8-10)
Cardassian citizen Elim Garak is assaulted by Rugal, a Cardassian youth whose adoptive Bajoran parents are passing through station DS9. Cardassian authorities suggest that the bizaare incident might have been the result of Bajoran foster parents teaching their adoptive Cardassian child to hate Cardassians. Investigation into the incident by station commander Benjamin Sisko reveals this to be true, but further reveals that Rugal's initial placement into a Bajoran orphanage eight years ago was a plot intended by Gul Dukat to embarrass Rugal's natural father, Kotan Pa'Dar. Despite the fact that Rugal's adoptive parents have cared for and loved Rugal, Sisko rules that the Cardassian youth has been the victim of Dukat's conspiracy, and orders Rugal returned to the custody of his birth father.
The Enterprise-D receives a delegation of Cairn representatives. These people communicate purely by telepathy and have no spoken language. The Cairn are accompanied by Ambassador Lwaxanna Troi, whose telepathic abilities help the Cairn in what is to them, a very alien world. Troi's valet, Mr. Homn, remains on planet Betazed.
Ambassador Lwaxanna Troi is taken ill because of excessive use of her telepathic abilities in communicating with the Cairn delegation aboard the Enterprise-D. Treatment of Troi indicates her condition has been exacerbated by an old psychic trauma to her metaconscious. The trauma is relieved when Ambassador Troi is able to acknowledge the source of her pain, the death many years ago of her older daughter, Kestra Troi. This is a significant revelation to Deanna troi, who had not been aware that she had a sister.
A new restaurant opens on the Promenade at station DS9. The new eatery features traditional Klingon-style cuisine, prepared by a master Klingon chef, who even takes pride in serenading his customers with Klingon music.
Starfleet ensign Melora Pazlar is assigned to station DS9 as a stellar cartographer. In preparation for her arrival, Chief Miles O'Brien and Dr. Julian Bashir modify a suite of living quarters to allow the artificial gravity to shut off to approximate the low gravity conditions on her homeworld. They also fabricate a wheelchair to allow her mobility throughout the rest of the station.
Ensign Melora Pazlar arrives at station DS9 aboard the staship Yellowstone. Melora, an Elaysian, has initial difficulty adjusting to the one-gee gravity field on the station, but quickly demonstrates that she will not allow this challenge to compromise her performance as a Starfleet officer. She is befriended by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Julian Bashir, and the two become romantically involved.
Nurse Alyssa Ogawa becomes romanitcally involved with Ensign Markson, a fellow Enterprise-D crew-member.
The USS Enterprise-D travels to planet Kesprytt III in order to evaluate a request by the Kes government for associate membership in the United Federation of Planets. It is an unusual request in that Kesprytt III does not yet have a unified world government, normally a condition for membership in the Federation.
Enterprise-D captain Jean-Luc Picard and Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher are abducted while beaming down to Kesprytt III, apparently by the Prytt government. Initial diplomatic efforts by Executive Officer William Riker to work with both the Kes and the Prytt governments to secure the release of both officers are unsuccessful, although their freedom is secured through covert means.
During their captivity, Picard and Crusher were both implanted with a neural control device that caused them physical discomfort if they became separated. A side effect of these devices was a sharing of their thoughts.
Picard and Riker both file reports to the Federation Council recommending against Federation membership to Kesprytt III because the planet's society is not yet advanced enough to solve its internal disputes.
Pel, an ambitious young Ferengi entrepeneur, is hired as a waiter at Quark's bar on station DS9.

Ferengi Grand Nagus Zek returns to station DS9, offering Quark the opportunity to serve as his negotiator for Gamma Quadrant business. Quark learns that his first assignment, to negotiate the acquisition of tulaberry wine from the Dosi, is a plot by Zek to learn about the Dominion at minimal risk to himself. The Dominion is believed to be a dominant power in the Gamma Quadrant. Quark suffers a setback in his standing with the Nagus when Quark's associate, Pel, reveals himself to be a female posing as a Ferengi male.
During Quark's absence in the Gamma Quadrant for Zek, Rom is forced to break into Quark's latinum floor vault in order to assure the safety of Quark's profits. Rom has also been opening Quark's storeroom with a desealing rod without Quark's knowledge.
Pel departs station DS9 aboard an Andorian transport.

Geordi La Forge borrows Data's pet cat, Spot. La Forge told his friend, Data, that he was thinking of getting a pet cat for himself, and wanted to
experience the full range of feline behavior before making that decision. Spot is not happy in her temporary home, and Geordi proclaims the cat
Starship Enterprise-D investigates the disappearance of the USS Fleming somewhere in the Hekaras Corridor, a region of space characterized by unusually intense tetryon fields. It is learned that the Fleming, and other vehicles disabled in the area, were disabled by a pair of Hekaran scientists who sought to gain the attention of the Federation to their findings that the continued use of warp drive was causing serious damage to the fabric of space.
Hekaran scientist Serova sacrifices her life in a dramatic demonstration of how excessive use of warp drive in a region of space with subspace
instabilities can cause a dangerous subspace rift. As a result, the Federation Council orders that all Federation spacecraft be limited to a maximum speed of warp factor 5, except in cases of extreme emergency, in order to limit further damage to the structure of space. Warp travel in areas found to be especially susceptible to damage is restricted to essential travel only.
Starfleet begins a program to develop a new warp engine design that will not cause damage to the fabric of space, which is first incorporated on the Intrepid-class.

Alos uncovered is the fact that Kira Nerys had been responsible for the death of Pallra's husband, Vaatrik, five years earlier.
The starship Enterprise-D travels to planet Atrea IV in response to a request for aid from the Atrean government to help prevent a natural disaster on their planet. Atrea IV's core is cooling at a very high rate, causing a dramatic increase in seismic activity.
Enterprise-D personnel work with Atrean scientists to deivse a means to infuse plasma energy into the core of Atrea IV so that stability can be restored to the planet. The plan is executed with only minimal problems.
One of the Atrean scientists working to solve the core cooling problem is Dr. Juliana Tainer, who was once married to Dr. Noonien Soong, when Soong constructed the android Data. Tainer, who was then known as Juliana Soong, is effectively Data's mother. When tainer is injured during an accident on Atrea IV, Data learns that Juliana is in fact an android, built by Noonien Soong 34 years ago, in the image of his wife who was killed by the Crystalline Entity. So sophistiscated is Juliana that she is unaware that she is not human. Data chooses to accept his father's wishes in allowing Juliana to continue to believe she is human.
Voy: Pathways (Chapter 12, Section 1)
Noted terraformer Gideon Seyetik arrives at station DS9 aboard the Starship Prometheus.
Noted terraformer Gideon Seyetik is killed during an extraordinary experiment involving the use of protomatter to successfully reignite a dead star, Epsilon 119. He sacrificed himself on the altar of science.
During Seyetik's stay at DS9, Benjamin Sisko meets an attractive woman named Fenna. Investigation reveals that Fenna is not a physical life-form, but an illusory projection created by Seyetik's unsatisfied wife, Nidell, who has psychoprojective telepathic abilities.
Nidell returns to her homeworld of New Halana, where she expects to spend the rest of her life.

DS9: Devil in the Sky
Worf is honored with an award for Champion Standing at the bat'leth competition on Forcas III.
Worf's birthday. Starship Enterprise-D is assigned to return to the Argus Array to investigate another apparent malfunction in the subspace telescope.
Upon Worf's return to the Enterprise-D, he becomes aware of a bizaare series of discontinuities in his sense of reality that he initially suspects may be due to a memory loss. It is later discovered that when returning from Forcas III, Wrof's shuttlecraft passed near a quantum fissure in space, causing a breakdown in the barriers between quantum realities, so that Worf was thrown into a state of flux in which he traveled freely between those different realities.
Worf's state of quantum flux causes at least 285,000 alternate realities to merge. Elements of some of these realities include: The marriage of Worf and Troi, the death of captain Picard in the battle of Wolf 359, Riker's assumption of the Enterprise-D captaincy, Wesley Crusher's assignment to the Enterprise-D as a lieutenant, the conquering of the Cardassians by the Bajorans, Nurse Ogawa becoming a doctor, and the conquering of the Federation by the Borg. Worf is successful in using his shuttlecraft to create a broad-spectrum warp field to seal the quantum fissure, thereby returning himself to his original reality, and restoring the barriers between the quantum states.
Major Kira Nerys begins discussions with Bajoran minister Rozahn regarding an irrigation project for the Trilar Penninsula on Bajor that is behind schedule.

It is not realized until later that the device actually affects the laws of probability, resulting in a number of extraordinarily improbable occurances at the station. These include unexpected outcomes to sporting events, bizaare behavior of computer systems, unusual patterns of business activity, and an inexplicable distribution of solar neutrinos near the station.
Starfleet Intelligence learns that the Romulan warbird Terix has found a piece of debris from the long-missing Starship Pegasus in the Devolin system. Romulan high command subsequently orders the warbird to locate the rest of the ship. Starfleet's reaction is immediate: Admiral Erik Pressman is assigned to investigate the situation and attempt to retrieve a sensitive piece of hardware that had been thought long when the Pegasus was believed destroyed in 2358. The plan has support at high levels in Starfleet Command, including Admiral Raner, the chief of Starfleet Security.

The USS Enterprise-D responds to an emergency distress call from planet Boraal II. The call originated from Federation cultural observer Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko, Lieutenant Worf's foster brother.
The Starship Enterprise-D, at planet Boraal II, finds intense plasmonic reactions about to destroy the planet's atmosphere with 38 hours. Federation cultural observer Rozhenko recommends that the Enterprise-D use its resources to rescue some of the indigenous humanoids from Boraal II, but Captain Jean-Luc Picard refuses on Prime Directive grounds. Rozhenko, acting against orders, surreptitiously beams one tribe to one of the ship's holodecks, where he has created a simulation of their planet's environment so that they are unaware that they have left their home. While the Boraals are in the holodeck, the Enterprise-D travels to Vacca VI, a Class-M planet in the Cabral sector, where they are transplanted to their new homes, still unaware that they had been abaord a starship. There is one Boraal casualty, the village chronicle, named Vorin, who accidentally left the holodeck and could not cope with his knowledge of the Federation's technology.
Dr. Rozhenko elects to remain on Vacca VI, with the transplanted Boraals, where he intends to become the new village chronicle and raise a family with a Boraal woman named Dobara.
Worf informs his adoptive parents, Sergey and Helena Rozhenko, that his step-brother has chosen to spend his life on Vacca VI. He tells them that Nikolai is happy there.
The United Federation of Planets concludes a long and difficult series of negotiations with the Cardassian Union. They agree to a pact formalizing the borders between the two powers, including the establishment of a Demilitarized Zone. The new border will require several established Federation and Cardassian colonies to be relocated.
Some Federation colonists living near the Cardassian border, dissatisfied with the new treaty and believing themselves abandoned by the Federation government, join an underground terrorist group calling itself the Maquis.
Felisa Howard dies at her home on planet Caldos. She was the grandmother of Enterprise-D chief medical officer Beverly Crusher, and had raised young Beverly after the death of her mother while Beverly was still a child. At Caldos, Felisa was widely respected as a healer.
Following the funeral for her grandmother at the Caldos colony, Beverly Crusher learns that Felisa Howard had a mysterious lover named Ronin for much of her life. Beverly further finds that he is an anaphasic energy life-form, who, in the body of Ronin, had been the lover of Howard women for nearly eight centuries. So powerful is Ronin's attraction that beverly initially chooses to resign from Starfleet so that she can be with him, but Beverly soon realizes that Ronin's love is a narcotic, and she is forced to destroy him.
Starfleet becomes aware of the Maquis and of the terrorists' activities against the Cardassians. Starfleet Academy newspaper editor Harry Kim writes an editorial on the subject, sparking debates, resulting in increased insight into the history of political rebellion for many cadets.

A duplicate of Miles O'Brien returns to station DS9. Station personnel, mindful of the Paradan warning, keep the duplicate under observation, although tests to determine whether or not he is a duplicate are inconclusive. The duplicate O'Brien, believing that he is in fact the original, grows suspicious of his coworkers, believing that they may have been tampered with or replaced.
The duplicate Miles O'Brien returns to the Parada System, and is killed while attempting to learn what happened. Up until just before his death, the duplicate believed that he was the original, although it became clear to DS9 personnel and Paradan authorities that he had been programmed to disrupt the upcoming peace talks.

Enterprise-D engineering staff member Dan Kwan commits suicide by jumping into the plasma stream in one of the ship's warp drive drive nacelles. Investigating the incident, Counselor Deanna Troi experiences a powerful empathic hallucination. It is learned that Kwan's suicide and Troi's hallucination were caused by exposure to an empathic pattern that had been imprinted onto a bulkhead in the nacelle interior. These patterns are determined to have been created eight years ago when three engineers at Starfleet's Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards were involved in a romantic triangle in which a jealous partner killed his lover and rival, then committed suicide by throwing himself into the nacelle's plasma stream.

While on a science mission in the Gamma Quadrant, Dax and Arjin's runabout suffers an accidental impact with a sub-space interphase pocket, after which an energy mass is discovered adhering to the ship. Upon returning to DS9, study of the energy mass reveals it to be a protouniverse in early stages of development. Although the expansion of the protouniverse poses a serious threat to the station and the Bajor system, sensor readings indicate the possibility that sentient life may exist in the microcosm. Accordingly, the protouniverse is returned to its original location in the Gamma Quadrant.
Jake Sisko, continuing to tutor Mardah in entomology, finds himself increasingly attracted to her, and is pleased that she returns the feelings.

Enterprise-D systems engineer Reginald Barclay is treated for a minor case of Urodelan Flu. In treating Barclay's condition, Dr. Beverly Crusher introduces a synthetic T-cell into his body. A genetic anomaly in Barclay's biochemistry is responsible for mutating the synthetic T-cell into an organism that spreads like an airborne virus, causing crew members to genetically revert back to earlier forms of their species. The only crew member not affected is Commander Data, who develops a retrovirus that is successful in returning the other members of the crew to their original state. The malady is termed Barclay's Protomorphosis Syndrome.
Data's pet cat, Spot, gives birth to kittens, thereby ending once and for all the misconception that Spot is a male feline. The birth of Spot's kittens provides Enterprise-D personnel with an important clue to developing the retrovirus that cures Barclay's Protomorphosis Syndrome.

DS9 personnel rescue a Cardassian shuttle that had reportedly suffered damage in a meteor storm. It is soon learned that the shuttle had been carrying Cardassian political dissidents Natima Lang, Rekelen, and Hogue, and that the damage to their ship had been inflicted by a pursuing Cardassian warship. The dissidents are wanted because they publicly oppose continued military dominance of the Cardassian government. The Cardassian Central Command demands the extradition of the fugitives, but the trio escape, aided by Quark and Garak. Quark's assistance is motivated by his past romantic involvement with Lang. Garak later remarks enigmatically that his assistance in the matter was because of his love for Cardassia.

Cadet Wesley Crusher takes advantage of a school vacation and travels from Starfleet Academy to Starbase 310, so that he can spend some time with his mother and former shipmates on the Starship Enterprise-D. Wesley has been experiencing serious doubts about his choice of a career in Starfleet. Academy superintendent Brand reports that his grades are falling.
The Starship Enterprise-D arrives at Starbase 310 so that Captain Picard may be briefed by Fleet Admiral Nechayev on the repercussions of the new agreement with the Cardassians. Also boarding the ship at Starbase 310 is Cadet Wesley Crusher, on vacation from starfleet Academy.
U.S.S. Enterprise-D travels to planet Dorvan V to carry out Admiral Nechayev's order of evacuating the Federation colonists, in compliance with the new border treaty with the Cardassians. Enterprise-D captain Picard meets with colony leaders in an attempt to negotiate their departure, but the colonists are adamant about remaining in their new homeworld. The situation is made more volatile when the Cardassian warship vetar, under the command of Gul Evek, arrives early on a survey mission, further increasing the militant resolve of the colonists. Picard is
successful in working with the colony leadership and the Cardassian government to develop a highly unorthodox solution. Under this new agreement, the Native-American colonists of Dorvan V will relinquish their Federation citizenship and agree to live under Cardassian jurisdiction. Colony leader Anthwara indicates to Picard that his role in making it possible for Anthwara's people to remain on their chosen homeworld somehow atones for a crime against Native-Americans committed by one of Picard's ancestors centuries ago.
Wesley Crusher spends time on Dorvan V with a colonist named Lakanta, who invokes Native-American rituals to help Wesley resolve his inner turmoil about his future. Wesley's vision quest enables him to realize that he no longer wishes to follow his late father's footsteps, that he needs to make his own destiny. Freed from external expectations, Wesley resigns from Starfleet Academy. He begins to explore other possibilities, and, along with Lakanta, who reveals himself to be the Traveler, sets off on a voyage of discovery that will very likely transcend time and space.

The Starship Enterprise-D prepares for a rendezvous with the U.S.S. Kearsarge.
Students in the science class aboard the Starship Enterprise-D make fullerines as a class project.
The rendezvous with the Kearsarge is delayed for four days, making it possible for the Enterprise-D to conduct additional studies of the Vodrey nebula while the ship travels to planet Maranga IV. Lieutenant Worf takes personal leave with his son Alexander, to the Klingon Kot'baval festival on Maranga IV, in hopes of kindling the boy's appreciation for his Klingon heritage. Also during the delay, Captain Jean-Luc Picard takes a side trip to the hatarian system to view the ancient ruins being excavated there.
At Maranga IV, Worf and Alexander meet a stranger who identifies himself as K'mtar, who is gin'tak (advisor) to the house of Mogh. K'mtar informs Worf that he is there to protect Worf against a possible attempt against Worf's life from the house of Duras. Investigation reveals that there is no current Duras plot against Worf, and Worf learns that the stranger is not K'mtar, but is in fact Alexander Rozhenko, returned from the future in an effort to encourage his younger self to pursue the ways of a Klingon warrior. The future Alexander tells his father of the future, of Alexander becoming a great diplomat, and of Worf dying in Alexander's arms. Young Alexander continues to resist his elders' pressures to learn the fighting arts, but Worf now has a greater appreciation of the fact that his son must make his own destiny.
Captain Picard returns to the Enterprise-D, and the ship makes its rendezvous with the Kearsarge.
The Maquis, a small but growing number of Federation citizens living near the Cardassian border who have banded togetherin self-defense against the Cardassians, begins to take a more militant posture. They acquire ships and weapons in increasing numbers, worrying both Federation and Cardassian authorities. The Maquis are resentful of Federation concessions to the cardassians made in the recent border treaty, and feel the only way to protect themselves is to take matters into their own hands.
Relationships between Federation and Cardassian citizens in the Demilitarized Zone continue to deteriorate. Two Federation colonists in Ropal City are stoned by a Cardassian mob. Reports suggest local Cardassian authorities may have encouraged the incident.
Cardassian freighter Bok'Nor explodes at station DS9. Cardassian authorities blame Maquis terrorists for the crime, accusing the Federation of being lax in policing its colonists in the DMZ. As evidence that Federation citizens are responsible for Maquis activity, Cardassian authorities produce a recording of colonist William Samuels, in which Samuels dies of an apparent suicide while in Cardassian custody, making further interrogation impossible.
Gul Dukat, unofficially assisting with the investigation, is abducted by Maquis operatives and taken to an asteroid in the Badlands. Benjamin Sisko, hoping to avoid a more serious diplomatic incident, commands a rescue mission in pursuit of Dukat's abductors.
Starship Enterprise-D detects a small robotic probe in deep space.
The robotic probe delivers a personal message to the Enterprise-D captain Jean-Luc Picard from former DaiMon Bok. It is a threat against a person named Jason Vigo, whom Bok claims is Picard's son. Picard investigates the threat, finding evidence that Vigo is indeed his son, but further investigation shows Vigo to be the victim of genetic tampering by Bok. Vigo is, in fact, not Picard's son, but the threat and the faked genetic evidence was an effort by Bok to win vengeance on Picard for having caused the death of Bok's own son in the Battle of Maxia in 2355.
Sisko's attempt to negotiate Dukat's release from Maquis operatives is unsuccessful, and Sisko must rescue Dukat by force. During the rescue, evidence is uncovered suggesting that Cardassian authorities had been secretly providing arms to Cardassian colonists in the DMZ, in direct violation of the Cardassian-Federation treaty. Sisko and Dukat act decisively to prevent a Maquis strike against a Cardassian weapons depot, since such an offensive would result in many civilian Cardassian casualties, almost certainly leading to war.
The Maquis captures a Cardassian weapon of mass destruction which they call "Dreadnought" and reprogram it to destroy the Cardassian fuel depot on Aschelon V.

Starship Enterprise-D, on assignment to survey sites for new Federation colonies in the Mekorda sector, encounters a magnascopic storm.
Starship Enterprise-D experiences what initially appears to be a malfunction in its comuter control systems. Diagnostic analysis of the malfunction reveals the presence of a number of abnormal circuit nodes imbedded into the ship's systems, apparently caused by the magnascopic storm in the Mekorda sector. These nodes transform the ship's computer systems into an emergent life-form that absorbs the programming of the ship's computers and uses its systems to give birth to a new space borne entity near the MacPherson nebula. While under control of the emergent life-form, the ship's holodeck programs appear to merge, providing a means by which the life-from attempts to communicate with the ship's crew.

Winn accuses Bariel of having been the informer who caused the infamous Kendra Valley massacre in which 42 Bajorans were killed, including the son of then-Kai Opaka. Preliminary investigation supports these charges. Although Winn has publicized neither the accusations nor the investigation, Bariel withdraws from the election. Bariel accepts the public disgrace in order to keep the secret that it was in fact Kai Opaka who sacrificed those in the Kendra Valley to save thousands more.

Miles and Keiko O'Brien depart station DS9 for a much-needed vacation. While en route via runabout, Miles O'Brien is abducted by a Cardassian patrol ship and taken to Cardassia to stand public trial for alleged involvement in illegal arms shipments to the Maquis. As is normal in the Cardassian system of justice, O'Brien's being brought to trial means that he has already been found guilty by the government, the trial merely serves as public confirmation of that guilt. Nevertheless, investigation by DS9 security chief Odo reveals that O'Brien had, in fact, been framed by Cardassian operatives seeking to link Starfleet with maquis terrorist acts. Unwilling to permit public disclosure of the evidence, the Cardassian government, n an almost unprecedented move, sets aside the verdict and orders O'Brien released.
