Episode cast overview:
Prime Minister Nayrok
Andrew Bicknell ...


The Enterprise arrives at planet Angosha III, which wants to join the Federation. While their PM Naydor stresses pacifism and intellectualism, prisoner Roga Danar's escape from a maximal security facility is reported; the Enterprise undertakes to capture his cargo vessel, but it eludes the starship at an asteroid; after more tricks, the prisoner is beamed aboard and stunned with great difficulty. Danar has no life signs, his record is military. It is found he was in a program to turn unknowing Angoshan volunteer army recruits into perfect soldiers, by chemical and mind programming. He means it when he says he would rather die then return as prisoner, proves a master at escape and then surprises again... Written by KGF Vissers

Roga Danar
8 June 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Enterprise is negotiating a planet's membership into the Federation. When a prisoner from a lunar prison escapes Picard offers assistance in locating this 'deviant'. He is quickly located through a small academy trick of Commander Riker's. when eventually in a holding cell Roga Danar talks with several crew members and opinion begins to grow among the officers that this man is no criminal but in fact is a conditioned soldier no longer allowed back into society. Picard is by Federation law, not allowed to interfere with the planet's laws and is, after advice from his crew mates eventually made wash his hands of the prisoner. Danar is crafty however and escapes. This episode had harrowing similarities to many of the mentally scarred soldiers from the Vietnamese wars. Upon arriving in the Capital City Picard argues with the Prime Minister who has made it clear that the affair is nothing to do with the Federation. Moments later Danar and several escapees from the Lunar Colony interrupt and make it clear they refuse to return to the Colony. When the Prime Minister asks for help Picard says in his own words, this is not their affair and the Enterprise crew members depart.
