The ship has a new chief medical officer, Dr. Katherine Pulaski, now that Beverley Crusher has been made head of Starfleet Medical. The Enterprise is on an emergency mission to collect plague samples for analysis but Counselor Troi unexpectedly finds herself pregnant. She also finds her pregnancy advancing very quickly with conception to birth expected to take no more than 48 hours. Once born the child, whom Troi names Ian Andrew after her father, grows at a rapid rate proceeding through childhood in a matter of hours. Meanwhile Guinan, who tends the bar in Ten Forward, a crew lounge, gives Wesley Crusher some advice.

Asked about her past, Guinan makes a false statement.
Wesley; People say you're very old.
Wesley; And that you knew Captain Picard when he was on the Stargazer.
Guinan; No, I never knew the captain till I came on board (Enterprise).
Guinan's statement is false. She and Picard met in San Francisco in 1893.
