An unknown force transports Captain Jean-Luc Picard out of his quarters into a closed cell, where he joins three other captives of different races, including Federation cadet Mitena Haro, who have very different temperaments and mistrust each-other, but have no hope to escape unless they manage to collaborate. Meanwhile a perfect replica of Picard takes his place aboard the Enterprise, but Commander William T. Riker soon suspects he's too perfect and a danger for the ship...
Did You Know?
The song in which Picard's replica leads the crew is "Heart Of Oak". This traditional British song is the official march of their Royal Navy, of the Royal Canadian Navy, and of the Royal New Zealand Navy.
Its lyrics are as follows:
"Come! Cheer up, my lads; 'tis to glory we steer, To add something new to this wonderful year To honor we call you - as free men, not slaves, For who are so free as the sons of the waves? Hearts Of Oak are our ships, jolly tars are our men We always are ready; steady boys, steady. We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again."
The song was written in 1760 by David Garrick
, an English actor, for one of his Drury Lane productions. See more

My given name is Esoqq. It means 'Fighter'.
I'll bet half the names in the Chalnoth language mean 'Fighter'.
Mizarians. Your names all mean 'Surrender'!
We are a peaceful race. A race of thinkers.
A race of cowards.
