Stardate Unknown
While the Enterprise welcomes two Iyaaran ambassadors, Picard (Patrick Stewart) prepares to depart for their planet as part of a cultural exchange. Worf (Michael Dorn) and Troi (Marina Sirtis) are chosen to serve as guides for the two ambassadors. Worf finds the assignment distasteful, but Troi seems to relish it.

During the trip to Iyaar, a malfunction causes Picard's shuttle to crash on an unknown planet. He is unhurt, but the Iyaaran shuttle pilot receives a concussion. When Picard goes for help, he is knocked unconscious and awakens to find an attractive woman (Barbara Williams) caring for him. Before long, she professes her love and Picard soon becomes suspicious. Could these liaisons be more dangerous than they appear?

Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) has been murdered! When the crew of the Enterprise learns that Picard was ambushed while visiting an archaeological site, they begin to hunt for the killer. An eyewitness leads them to Barradas III where Commander Riker (Jonathan Frakes) is captured by mercenaries. On board their ship, he finds Picard alive and well, posing as a smuggler. It seems the alien troopers are stealing valuable artifacts from archaeological sites throughout the sector, though no one knows why. Meanwhile, the Enterprise closes in on the mercenary ship and prepares for battle. In a shocking gambit, Riker joins forces with the mercenaries, orders Data (Brent Spiner) to drop the shields, and Picard fires on the Enterprise! Part one of two.
