Riker has to quit his birthday party during a so far uneventful patrol voyage at the Neutral Zone to head an away team when a Romulan secret base is found on a planet which was believed uninhabited. He awakes 16 years later, as widowed captain of the Enterprise, just cured after 9 years of viral amnesia, with a son Jean-Luc. Even Picard, now an admiral who came to conduct with Riker, given his forgotten dealing with them, historical peace negotiations with the Romulans, loses all authority over him when he finally finds his late wife's image on the strangely slow-responsive computer...
