An Away Team's search of a barren planet turns tragic when a buried bomb explodes and kills one of the group's archaeologists. Worf (Michael Dorn), the team leader, feels he is to blame for the death.

On board the Enterprise, Picard (Patrick Stewart) breaks the news to the victim's 12-year-old son, Jeremy (Gabriel Damon). As Worf, himself an orphan, lends comfort to Jeremy, Troi (Marina Sirtis) detects an alien presence aboard the ship - Jeremy's mother, seemingly come back to life!

Picard determines that the image of Jeremy's mother is being created by an energy source from the planet's surface, and that the alien power is gaining control of the transporter room. Can Picard protect Jeremy and save the Enterprise?

As Picard (Patrick Stewart) and an Away Team investigate an ancient Promellian battle cruiser, the Enterprise is seized by a mysterious energy drain. Trapped in a holding pattern, the ship is bombarded by increasing doses of radiation.

Searching for clues, Geordi (LeVar Burton) materializes a holodeck version of Dr. Leah Brahms (Susan Gibney), a beautiful and brilliant engineering expert. They determined that the Enterprise is being held by centuries-old Aceton assimilators used in the war between the Promellians and the Menthars. The assimilators attracted energy, modify it and convert it to the fatal radiation. Unless Geordi and Leah can free the Enterprise, the crew will die within hours.

On the Federation planet Galordon Core, an Away Team discovers a crashed vessel and a dying Romulan officer. While Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Worf (Michael Dorn) beam back to the ship with the Romulan, Geordi (LeVar Burton) is caught in a fierce electrical storm and stranded on the planet.

Aboard the Enterprise, fears for Geordi's life grow when Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) reveals the Romulan has suffered neural degeneration caused by exposure to the planet's magnetic fields. Suddenly, a Romulan warship appears and demands the return of its officer. But the officer has died, leaving the Romulan captain (Andreas Katsulas) poised to attach the Enterprise. Meanwhile, on Galorndon Core, Geordi is ambushed by an unseen enemy - another Romulan survivor!

The Enterprise hosts a group of dignitaries who are bidding for the rights to a wormhole discovered by the Barzan. If the wormhole is stable, it would provide an invaluable shortcut through the galaxy.

When the Federation's delegate is taken ill, Riker (Jonathan Frakes) replaces him. Troi (Marina Sirtis) is immediately attracted to the Chrysalian delegate, Devinoni Ral (Matt McCoy), an eminently successful - and ruthless - negotiator. As the bidding war grows, so does the romance between Troi and Devinoni. But Devinoni hides a dangerous secret: he is part Betaziod. Now he is using his empathic powers to manipulate the negotiations and Troi - and he's determined to win both.
