Storyline

The Enterprise gets surprise messages and visits by stunningly crafty means for the rogue Ferengi 'DaiMon' (commander) Bok, who announces he'll exact retribution on Picard after 15 years for killing Bok's son in a legitimate space battle. The object of vengeance is Jason Vigo, a 23 year-old dashing climbing athlete and adventurer, whom Bok claims is Picard's son by the late Miranda Vigo. Jason is picked up for protection and found genetically compatible with both, but carrier of a rare hereditary degenerating disease. Data finds Jason's roguish minor criminal record. Ferengi reveal Bok was deposed as mentally unstable, but he still gets his ultimate confrontation, when the whole truth proves crucial. Written by KGF Vissers

Picard and Son
17 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another effort to come up with something worthy to finish off the final season. In this one, Picard, who was forced to blow up a Ferengi vessel in an earlier episode, is confronted by the Ferengi whose son was on board that ship. He has sworn revenge and tells Picard that he has a son, unknown to him, and the D'Aimon is going to execute him. Picard finds the "son" and brings him aboard the Enterprise to protect him. Apparently, the Captain had had some dalliance in the past and this young rebellious guy was the result. Unfortunately, the Ferengi leader seems to have access to the ship and is set upon making PIcard pay. The episode involves Picard getting to know this young man and do what is right. Once again, there is a kind of pall over the episode and it just doesn't work that well.
