En route to a potentially volatile meeting with the insect-like Jarada, Picard (Patrick Stewart) seeks refuge in the fabricated environment of the holodeck and goes back in time. The place: San Francisco. The year: 1941. In his new-found environment Picard assumes the guise of Dixon Hill, private detective. Picard is soon joined by Data (Brent Spiner), Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) and Whalen, the ship's historian.

But when captain and crew attempt to return to the ship, they discover a malfunction in the holodeck, preventing their return and endangering the meeting with the easily angered Jarada. As Picard and his team battle to outwit a sinister thug (Lawrence Tierney), the Enterprise lies in jeopardy, held hostage by history.

The Enterprise is the site for a meeting between the Federation and a mysterious race called the Legaran. Representing the Federation is famed Vulcan ambassador Sarek (Mark Lenard), who arrives early to prepare for the Legaran.

Sarek's aids warn Picard (Patrick Stewart) that Sarek is fatigued. Later, at a concert arranged in Sarek's honor, Picard is stunned to observe the Vulcan moved to tears. Troi (Marina Sirtis) and Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) surmise that Sarek is suffering from Bendii Syndrome, a degenerative disease characterized by the loss of emotional control. Picard decides that the only way to protect the Federations' interests is to mind-meld with Sarek. But can Picard withstand the violent intensity of Sarek's emotions?

After being damaged in a Borg attack, the Enterprise docks in Earth's orbit for repairs. Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart), still recovering from injuries inflicted by the Borg, returns for the first time in twenty years to the French village where he grew up. However, his older brother Robert (Jeremy Kemp) feels deep-seated jealousy and resentment toward Picard and greets him with contempt.

Back on the Enterprise, Worf's human parents pay him an unexpected visit. Feeling disgraced because of Klingon ritual shaming, Worf has difficulty facing them until Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) provides some insight.

On Earth, Picard receives an offer to head a scientific project and seriously considers leaving Starfleet to take the job. His brother sees this as an opportunity to undermine Picard's façade of perfection. Will Picard be able to face the truth about himself that only his brother understands?

Tension mounts aboard the Enterprise when retired Admiral Norah Satie (Jean Simmons) arrives to assist in the investigation of J'Dan (Henry Woronicz), a visiting Klingon officer accused of spying. Satie quickly extracts a confession from the Klingon, but she believes he did not act alone and the hunt for his accomplice begins.

While questioning crew members, Satie's Betazoid aid concludes that one of the medical technicians, Simon Tarses (Spencer Garrett), is lying. Satie insists he is guilty of treason, but Picard (Patrick Stewart) refuses to convict the man without substantial evidence.

After forcing Tarses to confess that he is in fact part Romulan, the witch hunt continues and Satie begins to question Picard's loyalties. Does Picard's resistance to her investigation make him guilty of treason?
