Conclusion. Worf (Michael Dorn) discovers a secret Romulan prison camp in the Carraya System and learns that his father did indeed die in battle at Khitomer. After a failed escape attempt, he learns that the Klingons housed there have come to regard the prison as their home. Later, while performing an ancient Klingon martial arts exercise, Worf attracts the attention of the younger Klingons and gladly assumes the role of teacher. When the Klingon youth begin to embrace their heritage, the Romulan leader (Alan Scarfe) becomes enraged and threatens to execute Worf for his subversive activities. But Worf refuses to acquiesce, preferring to die with honor, rather than give up his birthright as a Klingon warrior.

At the Remmier Array, the Enterprise is evacuated in order to conduct a baryon decontamination sweep. While the senior officers attend a reception at Arkaria Base on the planet below, Picard (Patrick Stewart) finds an excuse to return to the ship where he is captured by a band of rogue technicians. Meanwhile, on Arkaria, the station administrator (Glenn Morshower) leads a coup and the senior officers are taken hostage. While Riker and company devise a plan to subdue their captors, Picard learns that the technicians are planning to steal the ship's highly volatile trilithium resin. Now he must find a way to stop them while simultaneously avoiding the deadly ray of the baryon sweep.

During a late night visit to the Stellar Cartography department, Picard (Patrick Stewart) meets Lt. Commander Nella Darren (Wendy Hughes), the section's new department head and immediately becomes smitten. Later, the two engage in a private duet with Nella on the piano and Picard on the Ressikan flute. The performance ends with a passionate kiss.

While Picard worries about the consequences of a relationship with someone under his command, the Enterprise sets course for Bersallis III to study the planet's fire storms. When a storm threatens the Federation outpost, an away team, including Nella, is sent to the planet's surface to install thermal deflector units. Will they survive or has Picard sent the woman he loves to her doom?

Stardate 46731.5
Professor Galen (Norman Lloyd), Picard's (Patrick Stewart) old archaeology professor, pays a surprise visit to the Enterprise and invites Picard on a secret expedition. Though intrigued, Picard must refuse and the professor angrily leaves the ship. Soon afterward, his shuttle is attacked and he is killed.

While investigating his death, the crew finds 19 blocks of numbers stored in the professor's computer. Later, they learn that the numbers are mathematical representations of DNA fragments, each from a distinct life form from 19 different worlds. Now, the Enterprise is in a race with the Cardassians, Klingons and Romulans to solve a four billion year old genetic puzzle. Who knows what prize awaits at the end of the chase?
