After the disappearance of the U.S.S. Drake, an away team beams down to the planet Minos to search for survivors. While exploring the planet, the team is assailed by an energy sphere that traps Riker (Jonathan Frakes) in a impenetrable, transparent cube.

Meanwhile, the Enterprise has fallen under the attack of an invisible enemy that thwarts all attempts to rescue the crew members on Minos. LaForge (LeVar Burton) traces the attacks to a computer-generated weaponry system that went out of control and destroyed the civilization that created it. Can the starship crew deactivate the pernicious computer in time to save the planet...and themselves?

Stardate Unknown
After receiving a distress signal from an Ornaran freighter, the Enterprise beams up the ship's cargo along with two Ornarans and two representatives from Brekka, Ornara's neighboring planet. The Enterprise's new guests proceed to feud over the cargo which is medicine for a plague that has beset Ornara for centuries. The Brekkians, exclusive manufacturers of the medicine, claim the Ornarans have not provided payment.

Picard (Patrick Stewart) convinces the Brekkians to administer doses to the Ornarans on board. But when Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) examines the "cure," she discovers it is a narcotic that has turned the Ornarans into drug addicts! The Prime Directive prohibits Picard from interfering...but how can he ignore the gradual extinction of another race?

A rescue mission results in tragedy for Starfleet Officer Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby)!

Heading toward a rendezvous with the Enterprise, a shuttlecraft manned by Counselor Troi (Marina Sirtis) malfunctions and crashes on Varga 2. An away team is dispatched to the planet where it is discovered that a malevolent entity named Armus (Mart McChesney) has surrounded Troi's shuttlecraft with a forcefield. When the team confronts Armus, the alien kills Yar.

While Picard tries to reason with Armus, Lt. Worf and Wesley Crusher discover that the force field weakens when Armus is provoked. Risking his life, Picard attempts to distract the deadly Armus while the away team tries to free Troi.

Stardate 41697.9
Traveling to Sarona Eight for shore leave, the crew experiences a phenomenon in which time repeats itself. Shortly thereafter, a distress call comes from Vandor Four, where Dr. Paul Manheim (Rod Loomis) has been conducting time-warp experiments.

A rescue mission delivers Manheim and a surprise for Picard: Manheim's beautiful wife, Jenice (Michelle Phillips), Picard's first love. While Picard (Patrick Stewart) tries to deal with his feelings for Jenice, Manheim reveals that his experiment has cracked a hole into a new dimension, imperiling the very fabric of the galaxy. Now Data (Brent Spiner) must travel to Vandor Four to seal the galactic hole before time runs out for the Enterprise.
