Storyline

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.

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 »

Spoiled White Twenty Something to Lead Native American Culture
17 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By this time in the series, the pensive Wesley Crusher has become a non-player. All his successes as a Wunderkind were intriguing, mostly because of his baby face and Gee-wiz excitement over having so much power. This is a simplistic story of a group of Indian colonists who are about to be removed from their planet after treaty in the Federation. Wow, what a coincidence. This is not to diminish the plight of Native Americans; it's just the ridiculous contrivances of this. These people are resisting the treaty and are about to be put out on some remote planet (perhaps the planet of northern Oklahoma) without their permission. They are willing to take the chance of sitting in the middle of the Kardassian empire, but Picard has been given the job (against his wishes) of resettling. All that is enough to make this a weak episode, but for some reason, the recalcitrant version of Wesley Crusher, beset with ennui, has been chosen as their spiritual leader. He has been picked by the tribal master to go on a vision quest. Anyway, it really doesn't wash.
