The Enterprise is docked at a station where it is to undergo a routine procedure to remove accumulated baryon particles. The ship must be evacuated while undergoing the procedure but Picard realizes there are people on board that should not be there. When the power is shut down, he finds himself trapped on board just when the deadly baryon sweep begins. The unknown people aboard the ship are thieves seeking to make a tidy profit from their foray. Data meanwhile tries to improve his ability to engage in small talk. Written by
