The Enterprise finds a damaged escape pod occupied by a severely injured humanoid. Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) thinks the victim's chances for survival are slim - until his damaged tissue begins repairing itself at an alarmingly fast rate.

The stranger - dubbed John Doe - continues to exhibit remarkable powers, including the ability to heal ailing crew members with his touch. After Picard (Patrick Stewart) tells John he has determined the coordinates of his home planet, John confides that he believes he is a fugitive, although he cannot remember why.

Suddenly, an unidentified vessel begins to scan the Enterprise. Communication is made by the ship's commander, who demands John be returned to face execution for acts of agitation. Will Picard fight to save the life of a dangerous fugitive?

Stardate 43989.1
Suspecting that the Borg are behind the recent disappearance of a Federation colony, Starfleet sends Lt. Commander Shelby (Elizabeth Dennehy), a specialist in Borg matters, to the Enterprise. Alluring and ambitious, Shelby has more than the Borg on her mind - she wants to replace Riker (Jonathan Frakes), who has been offered command of his own starship.

The Borg threaten to attack the Enterprise unless Picard (Patrick Stewart) is surrendered to them. After Picard refuses, the Borg board the ship and abduct Picard. Under Riker's command, the Enterprise pursues the Borg who appear to be headed for Earth.

After Shelby leads a thwarted rescue attempt, a Borg spokesperson contacts the Enterprise. The being identifies itself as Locutus, but the crew recognizes his true identity - Captain Jean-Luc Picard!
