Storyline

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. Given her ethnic and personal background, the conflict of loyalties grows as her covert mission to trap the resistance fighters succeeds. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Ro Laren: 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.

No mo Ro.

Ensign Ro was an addition to the cast in season 6. At the time, it appeared as if she was going to become a regular on the show but after only a few appearances she disappeared until this penultimate episode. It begins with the Maquis suddenly gaining an advantage over the Cardassians in their guerilla war. Since the members of this rogue organization are mostly made up of people living within the Federation, it's up to the Enterprise to try to bring their terrorist ways under control and bring these rebels to justice. To do so, Picard asks Ro to go undercover--a thoroughly stupid idea, as she obviously is very much in sympathy with these folks. Can she serve the Federation or will her natural inclination to hate Cardassians and kick butt propel her towards becoming a traitor to Starfleet?

This is a decent enough episode and it's well done. My only complaint and reason I give this one a 7 is because the character was pretty much abandoned by the writers and suddenly makes an appearance in the second to last episode...which feels kind of weird and contrived.
