The Enterprise aborts an archaeological mission, responding to an emergency call from the devastated colony on the home planet of deceased crewmate Tasha Yar, Turkana IV. There two Federation officers are held hostage, captured from an escape pod, by the Alliance which has been fighting for decades against a rebel party, the Coalition, which includes Tasha's sister Ishara Yar, who seems prepared to sacrifice anything necessary to help rescue the officers, and wins Data's friendship, but came with a secret agenda.

Furthermore, the actors portraying both Data and Ishara appear to be possible stand-ins for Brent Spiner and Beth Toussaint respectively. See more
