Storyline

Captain Walker Keel, an old friend of Picard's, uses a top-secret frequency, thus excluding informing Riker, to summon him to a top-secret meeting with two other captain. The vague innuendo about a plot to take over a strategic sector of the Federation by replacing mysteriously dying Starfleet officers doesn't quite impress Picard, but he reconsiders after Keel and his crew die in an explosion. So he intends with Riker to visit Starfleet HQ, where he will dine with admirals and their aide Dexter Remmick, while Riker keeps an eye on admiral Aaron, who insists to visit the modernized Enterprise, actually carrying an alien brain-parasite.

Trivia

According to "Captains' Logs: The Unauthorized Complete Trek Voyages", the parasites were originally intended to be working for the Borg. The destruction of the colonies in the following episode (Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Neutral Zone (1988)) would then have led into the Borg's introduction in the second season premiere. However, due to the writers' strike of 1988, the Borg storyline was pushed back several months, and divorced from any relationship to the "Conspiracy" storyline. There was no further on-screen connection or reference to the conspiracy until its mention in passing in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Drumhead (1991) in the fourth season. See more »

Wish that there had been a sequel
15 April 2006 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

"Conspiracy" ranks as one of the most disgusting installments in episode television history. The story line involves an infiltration of Star Fleet by "intelligences" bent on the destruction of the Federation. A longtime friend of Beverly Crusher visits the Enterprise and brings with him a sinister secret, revealed in a stunning confrontation with Worf.

As the conspiracy widens, Capt. Picard and Ryker return to Earth and come face-to-face with the "mother" of the conspiracy, setting the stage for one of the most dramatic and jaw-dropping scenes in Trek history.

'It's too bad that the producers didn't decide to continue with a follow-up episode that would tie up some of the loose ends from this memorable show.
