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.
