Storyline

An unknown force transports Captain Jean-Luc Picard out of his quarters into a closed cell, where he joins three other captives of different races, including Federation cadet Mitena Haro, who have very different temperaments and mistrust each-other, but have no hope to escape unless they manage to collaborate. Meanwhile a perfect replica of Picard takes his place aboard the Enterprise, but Commander William T. Riker soon suspects he's too perfect and a danger for the ship... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The song that the Picard replica sings in Ten Forward is as follows: Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steer, To add something new to this wonderful year To honour we call you not press you like slaves, For who are so free as the sons of the waves Hearts of oak are our ships, jolly tars are our men We always are ready, steady boys, steady We'll fight and we will conquer again and again.

Goofs

Mitena Haro's make-up comes loose at the base of her neck, revealing the line dividing her face to be just that, make-up. See more »

While Picard is lying in bed, a scanner appears above him. First it takes a reading and then he disappears, finding himself in a circular room with two other beings. One is a tiresome, whiny person who is incredibly passive and not helpful. The second is a young female starship cadet from a non human race. in a while, another grotesque creature shows up. He represents a violent race that often kills its own people. The problem is how to get out of there. Meanwhile, a facsimile of Picard has appeared on the Enterprise. He has full knowledge of his doppelgänger and runs the ship quite successfully. The difference is that the new Picard has kind of a pirate captain's swagger and mentality. He even goes to 10 Forward, buys everyone ale, and sings a drinking song with them. He also tries to put the make on Leslie. As he begins to get careless with the lives of his crew, Riker steps in and puts a stop to it. This is really a mutiny but the rest of the officers know they have been sent on a suicide mission. Of course, what takes place in the doorless room is what we wonder about. The solution is well thought out but the justification is very weak.
