Storyline

The Enterprise is transporting the Sovereign Marouk in an attempt to get a break away group of her people to return to the fold, so to speak. They broke away almost 100 years ago and and are now known as the Gatherers, a band of scavengers forever raiding and scavenging anything they can get their hands on. Marouk is prepared to offer them an amnesty but there is a great deal of mistrust between them. Commander Riker meanwhile takes an interest in Marouk's cook Yuta, but the attention of the crew is diverted to finding a saboteur when one of the Gatherers is killed. Written by garykmcd

CCisto has it right--
7 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For my money, it would've been far more more powerful to have Riker transport Yutah to the brig for their final confrontation. Imagine the image of him telling her, "I've seen the side of you that regrets what you've become," then walking away. Just seems that would've been more true to the idea that vengeance unchecked can only harm, not bring closure. And given that Lisa Wilcox, as mentioned elsewhere, gives quite the nuanced yet bravura performance, leaving her alone to face the failure of her quest would have been perhaps a more appropriate ending--I myself had the impression that Yutah would have looked at death as a relief.
