Wesley is on leave from Starfleet Academy, but gloomy, moody and even rude. The Federation has concluded a peace treaty with the Cardassians, which reassigns several planets, including one where a tribe of American Indians relocated twenty years ago. Picard grudgingly accepts the assignment to relocate the colonists, who refuse to be uprooted a second time in two centuries. Their chief even claims that Picard is there to acquit his ancestor's part in a slaughter of his tribe 23 generations ago. The Cardassians arrive six weeks early for a 'legal' survey of the colony, stirring resistance. This is fueled by Wesley, who accepted an invitation from an Indian, who claims to have seen him during his vision quest, to undertake his own. It leads to Wesley's late dad, telling him that it's time to take a different path from his. Picard tries to get through to Cardassian commander Gul Evek. Wesley makes a major discovery and choice.

The second appearance of Richard Poe as Gul Evek within the Trek Universe. He also appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Preemptive Strike (1994), three episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), and Star Trek: Voyager: Caretaker (1995). See more »


Beverly speaks to Wesley about the Traveler, but mistakenly says that he is from Tau Ceti. Both Star Trek: The Next Generation: Where No One Has Gone Before, and Star Trek: The Next Generation: Remember Me had established that the Traveler was from Tau Alpha C. See more »


Wesley Crusher: What are those figures?
Lakanta: They're mansara - dolls that represent the different spirits that've come to this place.
Wesley Crusher: That one looks like a Klingon.
Lakanta: Yes. Our culture is rooted in the past, but it's not limited to the past. Spirits of the Klingon, the Vulcan and Ferengi... come to us just as the bear and the coyote, the parrot... There's no difference.

Trek always ahead of its time.

Besides the hints at "Voyager" and "Insurrectiuon", take note of Picard's ancestor; Spanish Conquistador Yavier Piccard. Almost a preview to Patrick Stewart's later portrayal of Charles Xavier, and of course co-star Famke Janssen (Kamala/Jean Grey). For fans of the "Badlands" Trek novels, Gul Evek's crossover from "Next Gen" to "Voy" (and later demise) is explained from this episode. Also the DS9 novels tie in these events to the ones in Season 7's "Pre-emptive Strike"; where Ro meets Chakotay before his Maquis crew encounters the Caretaker. Many have speculated that when Wesley is seen again in "Nemesis" he was an unofficial Federation liaison to the Traveler's race, or even be part of Riker's USS Titan adventures. Stay tuned.
