When the USS Fleming, a medical transport, disappears in an area which poses a hazard to warp-driven vessels, the Enterprise arrives on the scene to investigate. After confronting a Ferengi ship that was spotted in the area, the crew traces the Fleming to a debris field where they encounter a small object that emits a verteron pulse which disables their sub-space systems.

Moments later, two aliens board the Enterprise and reveal that they have been disabling ships in the area in an effort to get Starfleet to investigate. According to their research, the use of warp drives in the area is decimating their planet and may be destroying the very fabric of space.

Unfortunately, Data has no memory of her and is confused as to shy his own mother would never attempt to contact him. When confronted, Juliana admits that she and Soon left him on Omicron Theta not because they had to, but because she feared that if he were reactivated, he would become evil, like his brother Lore.

Returning victorious from the bat'telh competition, Worf (Michael Dorn) becomes dizzy and learns that he received a concussion during the tournament through he has no memory of it. When he checks his trophy he discovers that rather than winning the event, he came in ninth. As his memory lapses increase, it appears that reality is changing around him though no one else seems to notice.

When Data (Brent Spiner) searches for an explanation, he notices a quantum flux in Worf's subatomic particles which makes him asynchronous with normal matter. In essence, this Worf is from a parallel universe - and now they must find a way to send him back to protect the space-time continuum!

Admiral Pressman (Terry O'Quinn), Riker's (Jonathan Frakes) first commanding officer, arrives on the Enterprise with news of their old ship, the Pegasus, which was lost with most of its crew twelve years ago. Their mission is to find the ship and prevent the sensitive technologies on board from falling into the wrong hands. In private, Pressmen tells Riker that he wants to try the secret experiment that caused the disaster twelve years earlier. He also orders him to keep the true nature of the mission a secret from Picard (Patrick Stewart). Riker agrees until it becomes clear that his deception could lead to the destruction of the Enterprise, but by then it could be too late!
