Episode cast overview:
Kivas Fajo


A presumed routine transport of material from a Federation-friendly planet to the Enterprise goes suddenly wrong as the shuttle craft explodes. Android Data is presumed killed in the accident but actually finds himself kept captive on a starship by Kivas Fajo and his assistant Varria, who have an impressive collection of contraband treasures, but refuses to be a valued capture and attempts to escape. On board Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge and Wesley champion the thesis that its doesn't fit with Data's android nature after careful examination of all recordings... Written by KGF Vissers

Flavis makes a point to cover the number pad lock to keep Data from memorizing the unlocking code. While Data tries different combinations later, he fails to notice that each number makes a clearly different sound. All he had to do was access the audio memory Flavis used to figure out the combination. See more »


Lt. Commander Data: I must emphasize, Mr. Fajo, that I consider this captivity a hostile act on your part.
Kivas Fajo: [indifferently] Oh, well... you'll get used to it.

What some collectors won't do for that elusive prize!
15 April 2006 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

Saul Rubinek has a field day as a collector of rare items who has designs on Data (Brent Spiner) in this memorable episode. Rubinek's "Kivas Fajo" has no scruples and will do whatever is necessary to enlarge his assemblage of rarities.

The verbal sparring between Spiner and Rubinek gives credit to the super job done by the series' writers.

Character veteran Nehemiah Persoff, heavily hidden under some truly grotesque makeup, has a small part as one of Fajo's fellow collectors.

The ending, wherein Data, must make a life-threatening decision is indeed stunning.

It is not to be missed.
