The Enterprise is diverted to the Ramatis star system when Picard (Patrick Stewart) receives orders to transport a famous mediator, Riva (Howie Seago), to the site of a planetary conflict on Solais Five.

The Crew is surprised to discover that Riva is a deaf mute and communicates through a chorus of three people who translate his thoughts into words. Riva is immediately drawn to the empathic Troi (Marina Sirtis), and they develop a deep mutual affection.

When Riva meets the leaders of the warring parties, a rebellious soldier opens fire, killing the chorus and forcing Riva and the away team to escape. Now, unless Picard and his crew can persuade Riva to resume mediations, Solais Five will be plunged into war.

The Enterprise receives a distress call from Kareen Brianon (Barbara Alyn Woods), assistant to Ira Graves (W. Morgan Sheppard), one of the greatest minds in the universe and teacher of Noonian Soong. Data (Brent Spiner) develops an instant rapport with Graves, who is fatally ill. Graves tells Data he has discovered a means to transfer his life's knowledge into a computer, and then dies.

Aboard the Enterprise, Data displays uncharacteristic human behavior, and accuses Picard (Patrick Stewart) of lustful intents toward the beautiful Kareen. A psychological examination reveals Data now consists of two conflicting personalities - his own rational side, and the fiery human mind of Graves which is slowly consuming the android.

As Graves schemes to create an android body for his love Kareen, Picard fights to set Data free.

After locating the missing science vessel U.S.S. Lantree, the crew discovers the Lantree's crew dead from an unexpected cause: old age. The Enterprise then speeds towards the Lantree's last port of call, the Darwin Genetic Research Station, to warn its inhabitants of the possible danger.

The mysterious disease has already infiltrated the station. Chief researcher Dr. Sara Kingsley (Patricia Smith) pleads with Picard (Patrick Stewart) to evacuate the children, who show no signs of infection. Reluctantly, Picard allows Dr. Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) to examine one boy (George Baxter) in the protected environs of a shuttlecraft.

Moments after contact with the boy, Pulaski is stricken by the aging disease. While Pulaski resigns herself to her fate Picard desperately searches for a way to save the doctor's life.

Stardate 42506.5
An interstellar exchange brings a Benzite named Mendon (John Putch) to the Enterprise, and gives Riker (Jonathan Frakes) the opportunity to become the first Federation officer to serve on a Klingon ship.

Aboard the Klingon cruiser Pagh, Riker impresses his new shipmates when he subdues a second officer (Brian Thompson) who questions his authority. Meanwhile, Mendon uncovers a virulent strain of bacteria eating away at both hulls of the Enterprise and the Pagh. The Klingons mistakenly believe the Enterprise is responsible for the bacteria, and the Pagh's captain, Kargan (Christopher Collins), commands Riker to give the order to fire.

Riker's loyalty is divided between the Federation and the Klingon vessel he has sworn to serve. The lives of the Enterprise crew now hang in the deadly balance.
