Storyline

On mission to observe the development of protostars in the Volterra nebula, Picard is visited by his old Academy archeology professor Galen, who invites him on a long expedition he claims to be of historical importance. Being refused again in favor of fleet duty, Galen goes alone, but his shuttle is captured by Eurydians, who sell his vital findings, which Data, laForge and Crusher help decipher as an incredible DNA sequence,common to at let 19 independent life geneses - as it turns out, it was sold to the Klingons and Cardassians too, who arrive simultaneously at the planet where they suspect the common source, which included a 'program'. Yet this setting holds further surprises from still other races... Written by KGF Vissers

Aliens with Egg on their Faces
1 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When an old professor of Jean-Luc's turns up on the Enterprise with a priceless gift, he knows that something is up. He is trying to talk the Captain into going on an archaeological venture with him, the chance of a lifetime. Picard turns him down because of his commitment to his ship and crew and sends the man on his way in a shuttlecraft. Soon forces of the Kardassians, the Klingons, and Romulans show their ugly faces and the shuttle is destroyed. Picard begins to feel guilty about leaving his mentor to the dogs. There is something on that planet that is attracting these guys. In the process of attempting to find out what, we learn a lot about the races that have become regular foes for the humans. This is a pretty moralistic episode and works pretty well.
