Birthright (Part 1)

Birthright (Part 2)

Stardate 46579.2: Worf has been captured by the Romulans on the prison planet. But the situation is an odd one; the Khitomer prisoners would be disowned by their people if it was known they had been taken alive, so they live in relative peace with their Romulan 'captors'. Worf, however, has no intention of living his days as a prisoner and sets about inciting rebellion among the prisoners' children by instilling pride of their heritage into them. The system, which had survived for 23 years, breaks down, and the young are allowed to leave with Worf, on condition that they never reveal the existence of the planet or its Klingon prisoners.

The Chase

Stardate 46731.5: Picard's old archaeologist friend and mentor Professor Galen invites him to join an expedition in search of a mysterious artifact. He has discovered that, when joined, certain fragments of DNA from many different worlds would form a four-and-a-half billion year-old computer programme. Unfortunately, the Cardassians, Klingons and Romulans have also learned of Galen's research.

Frame Of Mind

Stardate 46778.1: Riker is cast as a mental asylum inmate in one of Crusher's plays. But his participation in the play is simply a memory of the previous day, and he is now a prisoner in a real asylum on Tilonius IV, a planet which is lurching towards civil war. His main concern, while his captors use drugs to confuse his mind, is to work out just how much he sees is reality, and how much is simply related to his frame of mind.

Second Chances

Stardate 46915.2 to 46920.1: The Riker/Troi romance is finally dealt with when a duplicate of Riker is found stranded on a planet after a transporter mishap eight years before. The duplicate, still ranked lieutenant, has never fallen out of love with Troi, and immediately sets about romancing her. Commander Riker is none too pleased at this new arrival on the ship. The lieutenant adopts his middle name of Thomas to avoid confusion, and Troi is very taken by his charm.

Timescape

Descent (Part 1)

Stardate 46982.1: The Borg attack a Starfleet outpost and set an ambush for an Enterprise away team. But these are no ordinary Borg; they have a sense of identity, and their reactions, methods and emotions are far closer to human patterns than to the Borg collective consciousness. During the attack, Data also finds himself experiencing an emotion, that of anger, when he loses his temper and kills a Borg with his bare hands. In reaction to the new threat Starfleet sets up a strike force in the quadrant, led by a female Starfleet admiral, with a sub-team of three ships under Picard's command. They wait for an emergency call from one of the nervous Federation colonies, but when it comes, it is merely a ruse to draw the Enterprise away and plant a Borg on the ship who uses a built-in upgrade to initiate emotional responses in Data, so that he becomes confused. Data and the Borg, Crosis, leave the ship in a shuttlecraft and head for the Borg base planet. When Picard and his away team find it, they walk into a trap set by Lore, who has used his own emotion chip to reconfigure the Borg under his control, and also has control of Data. The final shot is of Picard, Geordi and Troi, standing back to back, surrounded by advancing Borg.
