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

Yo ho, yo ho...a pirate's life for me....
16 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Captain Picard is getting sick of dealing with The Gatherers--a group of renegade Acamarians who survive through piracy. It's disruptive to this quadrant of space and he's determined to put a stop to it peacefully, if possible. With the help of Sovereign Marouk, he hopes to offer these raiders an amnesty in order to re-unify the Acamarians and restore peace to the region. However, no one realizes that Marouk's servant, Yuta, has a blood feud and she couldn't care less about the peace--she just wants revenge for some personal vendetta. At the same time, Riker (as usual) is a horn-dog and is looking to score with Yuta. Will this make him blind to the risk she poses?

This is a decent but otherwise unremarkable episode. While the goof listed on IMDb is valid, I don't think it was a serious flaw and didn't harm my enjoyment of the show.
