  • 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.

  • With the Enterprise en route to a conference near the demilitarized zone along the Cardassian border, the crew celebrates the return of Lt. Ro, newly promoted who has successfully completed her course in advanced tactical training. They soon find that a Cardassian ship is under attack by Federation ships belonging to a rebel group known as the Maquis. They operate in the Cardassian neutral zone and have a good deal of sympathy from many in the Federation. Admiral Nechayev arrives on the Enterprise and requests that Ro be sent undercover to infiltrate the Maquis. She does so but soon finds that her sympathies for the people and their cause force her to choose sides.

  • Following her return from Advanced Tactical Training, Ro is sent to infiltrate the Maquis and finds herself torn between her loyalty to Picard and Starfleet and to her sympathy with the Maquis fighting "the good fight".
