Storyline

The Enterprise's mission is aborted to return to a star-base where Admiral Brackett charges them with investigating the disappearance, possibly defection to the ever-scheming Romulans, of dying Federation ambassador Sarek's son Spock, who didn't say goodbye to his parents but took all his personal belongings after a public row with Sarek over the Cardassian war. A visit from Picard makes them realize the key must be Romulan senator Pardek, with whom Spock maintains since years personal contacts, against Sarek's will. Meanwhile Klingon leader Gowron is writing the Federation's help in the civil war out of official history, so Picard resorts to suggestions to get him to provide a cloaked ship, reluctantly piloted by Captain K'Vada, for this mission, with Data, both prepared to impersonate Romulans on Romulus... Meanwhile Commander William T. Riker and Troy find examining the disappearance of a Federation ship to and from the Ferengi most dangerous... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

This two-part episode contained 'graveyard' scenes full of wrecked and/or abandoned star-ships. These scenes were populated with study models that were considered for use in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) (as possible versions of the Enterprise) and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) (as the Excelsior). Some of the other wrecked ships were created via "kit-bashing," or by quickly mixing starship parts from many different models. See more »

Goofs

When Dokachin access the Enterprise computer and downloads the registry of the Vulcan ship they were looking for, he says the Stardate of arrival was "41344", although the computer display clearly shows "41334". See more »

Quotes

[Picard is requesting a cloaked vessel from Chancellor Gowron through B'iJik, a junior adjutant]
B'iJik: How would it benefit the Klingon Empire? I'm sure Gowron will ask.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The only benefit to the Klingon Empire would be our gratitude.
B'iJik: That is what you want me to tell him?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Yes. And please add that, if he is unable to provide us with a ship, then I am sure there are others in the Klingon Empire who would be willing to help me. And then... *they* would have our gratitude.

Pretty good...and a bit better than part 2
22 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Federation is alarmed. Ambassador Spock (Leonard Nimoy) has disappeared and is reported on Romulus. Is he defecting or is this some sort of personal peace mission? The Enterprise is given the assignment to figure it all out and save the day. Riker and the ship go in search of clues through the galaxy while the Captain and Data disguise themselves as Romulans and land on the planet with some help from the Klingons.

You only see Spock at the very, very end of the show. But it's worth seeing because you get a final look at his father, Sarek. He's dying and Picard makes a pilgrimage there to talk to him about his missing son. It's all very interesting and I generally enjoy the Romulan episodes. Too bad part 2 is messed up by a special guest star...one I never particularly enjoyed.
