Geordi (LeVar Burton) complains to Picard (Patrick Stewart) about Lt. Barclay (Dwight Schultz), a painfully shy and irresponsible engineer. As Picard urges Geordi to find a way to motivate Barclay, he retreats to the Holodeck. Casting crew members in supporting rolls, he acts out his wildest fantasies, including a romance with Troi (Marina Sirtis).

As Geordi, Troi and Riker (Jonathan Frakes) go to confront Barclay in the Holodeck, the Enterprise is jolted by a sudden increase in warp speed. Geordi needs Barclay's help to diagnose the problem before the rapidly accelerating starship self-destructs. Can Geordi pull Barclay out of his fantasy world in time to save the Enterprise?

The crew is stunned when a shuttle craft manned by Data (Brent Spiner) explodes on a transport mission. Geordi (LeVar Burton), distraught over the sudden death of his friend, refuses to believe the tragedy was an accident.

Geordi's suspicions arise when he learns that Data never sent a transmission confirming his departure from the ship of Kivas Fajo (Saul Rubinek), his last stop before the explosion. Did Data simply forget protocol, or was he trying to alert the crew to danger?

Meanwhile, aboard the ship of Kivas Fajo, Fajo has added a new attraction to his collection of one-of-a-kind objects from the Universe: a humanoid android from the USS Enterprise.

The Enterprise is the site for a meeting between the Federation and a mysterious race called the Legaran. Representing the Federation is famed Vulcan ambassador Sarek (Mark Lenard), who arrives early to prepare for the Legaran.

Sarek's aids warn Picard (Patrick Stewart) that Sarek is fatigued. Later, at a concert arranged in Sarek's honor, Picard is stunned to observe the Vulcan moved to tears. Troi (Marina Sirtis) and Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) surmise that Sarek is suffering from Bendii Syndrome, a degenerative disease characterized by the loss of emotional control. Picard decides that the only way to protect the Federations' interests is to mind-meld with Sarek. But can Picard withstand the violent intensity of Sarek's emotions?

Stardate 43930.7
Vacationing on the planet Betazed, Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis) are surprised by Troi's mother, Lwaxana (Majel Barrett). They are soon joined by Daimon Tog (Frank Corsentino), a Ferengi desperately in love with Lwaxana. Suddenly, Tog activates a beam that seizes Lwaxana, Troi and Riker and transports them back to his ship.

Riker and Troi are imprisoned while Lwaxana is turned over to Farek (Ethan Phillips), a doctor who wishes to study Lwaxana's telepathic powers. Meanwhile, an Away Team travels to Betazed and discovers clues that suggest the Ferengi are behind the abduction. But when Picard (Patrick Stewart) scans radio transmissions for a distress signal, all he receives is interference. Unless a trail can be found, Riker and Troi's hopes of returning to the Enterprise will be lost forever.
