The officers' ploy has succeeded: Riker won intergalactic piracy captain Baran's confidence while sparing the Enterprise. Picard works out the stolen archaeological artifacts are not Romulan but pre-logical Vulcan. This is confirmed by the only pirate who guessed their game, an undercover agent who must prevent them being used as a terrible weapon. Meanwhile Data is in temporary command, dealing with Worf's initial lack of respect and Klingon Koral's ship, until the pirates beam aboard with a whole series of mainly hidden agendas and deceptions Data's crew also plays into.

Baran: [to his crew] He's plotted this all along. Opposed me at every turn. Endangered all of us by refusing to follow his orders.

Picard as Curator
7 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This concludes the two-parter where both Picard and Riker play cat and mouse with a group of mercenaries. There is something powerful in an artifact that must be joined with another. It has to do with power that is unlike any seen before because it has to do with the disposition of the victim. Picard and Riker hatch a plot that involves messages to the Enterprise (commanded by Data) and a profile of antagonism on board the enemy ship. The Romulans and Vulcans share a similar history and this comes into play. Greed can make fools of us and this is no exception. Riker is excellent as the smug turncoat and Picard is also good as the cynical Galen, whose expertise is all that is keeping him alive.
