She ordered the kidnapping of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Doctor Beverly Crusher because she suspected them of conspiring with the Kes, the enemy of the Prytt. Picard and Crusher were fitted with psi-wave devices that the Prytt used to secure information. When the two escaped, Lorin sent security forces to kill them and threatened to attack the USS Enterprise-D.
Confronted by the Galaxy-class starship's firepower, which was superior to Prytt capabilities, and informed by Commander William T. Riker that Starfleet would investigate anything that happened to Picard and Crusher and that the investigation would make the Prytt very uncomfortable, Lorin acquiesced, and Picard and Crusher were returned to the Enterprise unharmed.
