After retrieving an errant Federation shuttlecraft, the crew makes a startling discovery: the shuttlecraft belongs to the Enterprise and its unconscious passenger is the exact double of Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart)!

Troi (Marina Sirtis) and Data (Brent Spiner) determine that the double is Picard as he exists six hours in the future. A mistake in the double's judgment has apparently caused the destruction of the Enterprise. Unless Picard can deduce what course of action his double took, the Enterprise will be destroyed...again!

Riker (Jonathan Frakes) faces the greatest moment of his career when the Federation offers him command of the Starship Aries. But the commander is shocked to learn that his own long-lost father (Mitchell Ryan) will be issuing his orders. During their tense reunion, Riker refuses his father's attempts at reconciliation.

Meanwhile, Worf (Michael Dorn) has been inexplicably hostile toward the rest of the crew. Wesley (Wil Wheaton) determines that Worf is feeling isolated because it is the anniversary of his Age of Ascension, an important Klingon ritual.

As Wesley, Data (Brent Spiner) and Geordi (LeVar Burton) attempt to help Worf, Riker and his father decide to settle their differences in a punishing martial-arts match.

Stardate 42695.3
Data (Brent Spiner) has found a pen pal - a girl named Sarjenka (Nikki Cox) who lives on the planet Drema Four. When Data tells Picard (Patrick Stewart) about Sarjenka, he learns that there have been severe geological disturbances beneath Drema Four's surface.

Riker (Jonathan Frakes) puts Wesley (Wil Wheaton) in charge of the team to research the planet's geological makeup. Wesley soon discovers that the older crew members under his command are opinionated and willful, and he fears he may lack the confidence to be a good leader.

When Data loses contact with Sarjenka, Picard agrees to let Data beam down to Drema Four to try and locate her before the planet self-destructs. As the danger escalates, Wesley holds the only hope of saving Drema Four, Sarjenka and Data.

Stardate 42761.3
The Enterprise receives an unwelcome visitor - Q (John de Lancie), the omnipotent being with a strange fascination for Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the Enterprise. After Picard refuses to let Q join the crew, Q hurls the Enterprise to the far side of our galaxy. A Borg, a being who is part organic and part artificial, suddenly appears in Main Engineering and begins to drain information from the ship's computers.

A Borg vessel appears and the Borg demand Picard's surrender. The captain refuses and a violent battle ensues which leaves both ships damaged and eighteen Enterprise crew members dead. As the Borg ship gives chase to the Enterprise, Q taunts Picard and reminds the captain how he scorned Q's offer to join the Enterprise. Will Picard be forced to beg for Q's help in order to save his ship and crew?
