(written from a Production point of view)
Commander Riker must either give up the USS Enterprise or sacrifice his captain's life.
- While exploring a group of devastated class-M planets in a remote sector of space, the crew of the USS Enterprise is shocked to discover a group of Human slaves on a forbidding, glacial world. When the slaves revolt against their Human overseers, Captain Picard and his crew sympathize with the slaves plight but cannot interfere in the conflict.
- After the revolt is a success, Captain Picard learns that both the slaves and the overseers were controlled by a mysterious bird-like race called the Tseetsk, who are coming to reclaim their property. With the time running out, the rebels kidnap Captain Picard and Counselor Troi – drawing the USS Enterprise into the middle of their deadly plan of vengeance.
