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.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Lakanta: You must treat yourself with respect. To do otherwise is to desecrate something that is holy.
Wesley Crusher: Is that what you think I've been doing?
Lakanta: Only you can decide that.
Wesley Crusher: I guess I haven't had a lot of respect for myself lately.
Lakanta: Then perhaps it's time for your own vision quest to begin.

One of the dumbest sub-plots ever in TNG
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(KINDA SPOILERY)

I loved the main plot about the forced removal of a people. It was about ethics and caused me to think. The writing however could have been better as the solution to the dilemma was so obvious that the story should have treated it as though it was already considered by the Indian.

The side story arc with Wes was one of the dumbest, most ad-hoc sub-plots in any TNG episode. Completely random and beyond my suspension of disbelief. It would have been much more interesting if they explored what caused the changes in his personality instead of just using it as a spring board to a big reveal. All in all, the surprise doesn't work and the epilogue had me shaking my head at how nonchalant Beverly and Picard dealt with such a world-altering event.
