Ensign Ro Laren is welcomed back with a party after Advanced Tactical Training. Almost immediately she's picked as best suited for an undercover mission in the demilitarized zone, to prevent the peace treaty with the Cardassians being undermined by illegally attacking Federation 'maquis' ships. Again given her ethnic and personal background, the conflict of loyalties -existing with Riker and other crew too- grows as her covert mission to trap the resistance fighters succeeds. Written by

Picard tells Ro that two years ago, Starfleet would never have considered sending her on the mission at hand. She later tells the Maquis that she was released from prison three years ago because Starfleet wanted her to work for them in Bajoran matters. What Picard means here is that Ro would not have been chosen for this type of mission shortly after being reinstated by Starfleet, obviously because of its much more sensitive nature. In the meantime, however, she must have gained a lot of credit with Starfleet, which Picard suggests as well. See more
My father played the klavion. When I was very young and afraid of monsters under my bed... he played for me. He said that the klavion had... special powers. Monsters were afraid of it. And when they heard it they would disappear. When I listened to that music he played for me... I was never afraid to go to sleep. When he died... I realized even he couldn't make all the monsters go away.
