  • When the Enterprise is advised by a passing Klingon vessel that there is strange debris in orbit around a nearby planet, they investigate only to find a piece of a NASA spacecraft emblazoned with the US flag. The planet below has severe weather and an unbreathable atmosphere except for one small area that appears to be inhabitable by humans. Riker, Data and Worf beam down to the surface only to find a single revolving door leading them to the casino floor in the Hotel Royale. They soon find that they are trapped there and cannot exit. As they explore the hotel, they find the remains of a human, dead for several centuries. They also find his diary and a cheap pulp fiction novel that seems to be the story taking place in the hotel itself.

  • The Enterpise examines space debris spotted by a Klingon vessel, orbiting an extremely inhospitable planet. Scans show a single place where a structure is surrounded by a breathable atmosphere and a US flag is found among the debris, suggesting a spacecraft missing for centuries must have crashed here. Picard sends Riker down with Worf and Data. They find the building to be a Vegas style casino-hotel, operated by entities which are biological nor mechanical, but there's no exit. Taking a room, they discover the astronaut's skeleton, a tacky novel situated in just such an establishment and his diary, combined clues to the tragic site.

  • The Enterprise discovers debris from a mid 21st century NASA spacecraft around a inhospitable planet. They then discover a zone of breathable area with a structure on it. When Riker, Worf and Data beam down they are trapped in a mid 80's Las Vegas Casino that is based around a poorly written novel entitled 'The Hotel Royale.'
