A presumed routine transport of material from a Federation-friendly planet to the Enterprise goes suddenly wrong as the shuttle craft explodes. Android Data is presumed killed in the accident but actually finds himself kept captive on a starship by Kivas Fajo and his assistant Varria, who have an impressive collection of contraband treasures, but refuses to be a valued capture and attempts to escape. On board Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge and Wesley champion the thesis that its doesn't fit with Data's android nature after careful examination of all recordings... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Among the artifacts in Fajo's collection is the communication device used by Sarjenka in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Pen Pals (1989), and a small vase that would be seen in the crew quarters of Data, Worf, Miles O'Brien, and many others later in the series. See more »


When Geordi wakes from the dream he is having about Data's accident, he picks up his visor, seems to look at it and turns it around then puts it on. Geordi is blind without his visor and would not be able to see it was the wrong way around. However, he can tell by touch that it is backwards without seeing it. See more »


Lt. Commander Data: I have been designed with a fundamental respect for life in all its forms, and a strong inhibition against causing harm to living beings.
Kivas Fajo: What a marvelous contradiction - a military pacifist!

What some collectors won't do for that elusive prize!
15 April 2006 | by garrardSee all my reviews

Saul Rubinek has a field day as a collector of rare items who has designs on Data (Brent Spiner) in this memorable episode. Rubinek's "Kivas Fajo" has no scruples and will do whatever is necessary to enlarge his assemblage of rarities.

The verbal sparring between Spiner and Rubinek gives credit to the super job done by the series' writers.

Character veteran Nehemiah Persoff, heavily hidden under some truly grotesque makeup, has a small part as one of Fajo's fellow collectors.

The ending, wherein Data, must make a life-threatening decision is indeed stunning.

It is not to be missed.
