Star Trek. On an unnamed planet in a distant sector, Starfleet, in an uneasy alliance with a new alien species, has discovered a secret that could transform the future of the entire Federation. The secret first turns Data against Starfleet, then draws Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise  into a dangerous situation that affects every member of the crew and presents them with an agonising moral dilemma. Picard finds himself torn between his conscience and his uniform as he is faced with orders he cannot obey and a crisis he cannot ignore.
