The Enterprise stops at a newly established starbase where the ship welcomes aboard Commander Bruce Maddox (Brian Brophy). Maddox stuns the crew when reveals that he has orders to disassemble Data (Brent Spiner) for scientific study. Data, doubting Maddox's abilities, exercises his only option - he resigns from Starfleet.

After Maddox argues that Data is the property of Starfleet, Picard (Patrick Stewart) asks the starbase's Judge Advocate General, Phillipa Louvois (Amanda McBroom), to call a hearing in which Picard will defend Data's personal freedoms. The JAG agrees, but surprises Picard when she reveals the prosecutor the captain will be facing - Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes).

The Enterprise receives orders to escort a beautiful 16-year-old girl named Salia (Jaime Hubbard) and her guardian Anya (Paddi Edwards) from Klavdia Three to Daled Four, the planet Salia is destined to rule.

It's love at first sight for Salia and Wesley (Wil Wheaton), much to the annoyance of Anya, who forbids Salia to have any further contact with Wesley. Meanwhile, Troi (Marina Sirtis) senses that the ship's new visitors are not whom they appear to be. Defying Anya's wishes, Salia visits Wesley in his cabin, where the two share an intimate moment. The romantic spell is broken by the appearance of Anya, who sparks a violent confrontation - one that holds a horrifying discovery for Wesley.

Picard (Patrick Stewart) receives a distress signal from the U.S.S. Yamato, which has been stranded in the Neutral Zone due to an inexplicable systems failure. As the Yamato's captain explains his mission - a search for the homeland of the legendary Ionian civilization - his ship explodes into nothingness. A Romulan vessel soon materializes and threatens attack unless the Enterprise leaves the Neutral Zone.

Suddenly, both ships are rendered powerless, crippled by the same mysterious computer failures that struck the Yamato. Unless one of the crews can locate the electronic virus, both vessels are doomed to self-destruct.

Traveling through an uncharted solar system, the Enterprise discovers a piece of metal bearing the NASA insignia. Looking for an explanation, Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Worf (Michael Dorn) and Data (Brent Spiner) beam down to a nearby planet where they discover themselves in a perfect replica of a 20th-century casino, complete with characters right out of a dime store novel.

After failing to find an exit, the away team discovers two books in one of the rooms: an novel; entitled "The Hotel Royale", and an Air Force officer's diary. The diary reveals that the hotel and its inhabitants were created by aliens, based on the world described in "The Hotel Royale." Have Riker, Worf and Data become the Royale's latest, permanent residents?
