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

Quotes

Commander William T. Riker: What is our mission?
False Captain Picard: I'm under no obligation to tell you that.
Commander William T. Riker: If you don't, you force me to take command of this vessel.
False Captain Picard: On what grounds?
Commander William T. Riker: You are endangering this ship for no reason.
False Captain Picard: No reason *you're* aware of.
Commander William T. Riker: That's not good enough. Your behavior has been erratic.
False Captain Picard: Erratic enough to justify mutiny? Do you honestly believe you have sufficient evidence to convince a board of inquiry?
Commander William T. Riker: No, I don't. But I can't let you risk the lives of this crew.

The ending makes this one very watchable.
17 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While Picard is relaxing in his quarters, something bizarre occurs-- he disappears and is replaced by a duplicate. The real Picard finds himself in a room with a couple others who also were kidnapped by someone or something--and they're soon joined by another. As for the faux Picard, he looks and sounds like Jean-Luc but isn't quite him-- and he gets weirder as the trip progresses. He does things that make little sense--such as coming on to the Doctor and taking them away from their mission on a slow ride to another part of space but the oddest is his leading the crew in a song in the galley! What's the purpose of all this? And, will the crew put up with the new Picard without a possible mutiny?

Sometimes it's fun watching the faux Picard and sometimes it's fun watching the real one. Best of all? Watching the real Picard get the last laugh on his captors at the end. Entertaining and well worth your time.
