The Enterprise hosts a Ceremony of Reconciliation between the Krios and Valt Minor systems in an effort to end their centuries-long war.

When a Ferengi (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Max Gordenchik) tries to steal the Kriosian's peace offering from a cargo bay, the package is damaged, revealing a stunningly beautiful woman inside. The woman, Kamala (Famke Janssen), explains that she is an empathic mesomorph, a rare creature with the ability to sense and serve her mate's every desire. She was to be a gift for the Valtese ambassador, but since her cocoon was broken prematurely, she is open to bonding with any male.

When the Kriosian ambassador is incapacitated, Picard (Patrick Stewart) is asked to take his place in the negotiations. Unfamiliar with Kriosian customs, he enlists Kamala's aid and soon finds himself unable to resist her charms.

While exploring a rare nebula, a mysterious energy being makes its way on board the Enterprise and materializes in the form of a young girl's imaginary friend. Though the ship experiences strange power fluctuations, Picard (Patrick Stewart) agrees to remain in the nebula to conduct further experiments.

Meanwhile, Clara (Noley Thornton) and her imaginary friend, Isabella (Shay Astar), begin to explore the ship, including sections which are off-limits to children.

When Troi (Marina Sirtis) encourages Clara to forget her imaginary friend and play with real children, the entity becomes enraged and threatens to destroy the Enterprise. As the crew struggles to escape from the nebula, strange energy strands envelope the ship and begin to drain its power. As the danger mounts, Picard comes to a terrifying realization. But is it too late?

Stardate 45854.2
Answering a distress call from a strange planet, the Enterprise finds a crashed Borg ship with one young Borg survivor (Jonathan Del Arco). Despite the risk, Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) beams up the injured Borg, and Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) must remove some of his brain implants in order to save him. Seeing a rare opportunity, Picard orders Geordi (LeVar Burton) to sabotage the reimplanted chips by installing an invasive command that will "infest" the entire Borg Collective.

Disconnected from the Collective, the captive Borg begins to develop individual identity and emotions. As a result, he befriends several crew members, including Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg). But Picard hasn't forgotten his own painful assimilation by the Borg and is reluctant to pull back from his plan to annihilate them.

After responding to a Romulan distress signal, Geordi (LeVar Burton) and Ro (Michelle Forbes) are pronounced dead when they attempt to transport back to the Enterprise and fail to re-materialize. Later, when they mysteriously reappear on the ship and no one else can see them, Ro assumes they must be dead.

Meanwhile, Data takes a shuttle to the Romulan ship to investigate the accident. Though they are invisible, Ro and Geordi tag along and learn the Romulans are secretly testing a new cloaking device. They also discover that they aren't dead - just trapped in another phase! Now they must find a way out before the Enterprise leaves the area and they are lost forever.
