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?


Fajo's lapling was a hand puppet created by Michael Westmore. Producer David Livingston recalled, "It was this little creature that Saul Rubinek went up to and said 'bidi-bidi-bidi.' That was his call to the creature and that became a running gag. People on the set still say 'bidi-bidi-bidi.'" "Bidi Bidi bidi" is possibly a reference to the robot character Twiki from series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. It is the sound that it made often. See more »


When Kivas throws acid on Data's uniform, there are dark spots high on his chest and his right arm. When the acid starts smoking, it is much lower on his chest and not at all on his arm. See more »


Kivas Fajo: Data. You will be catered to... fawned over, cared for, as you never have been before. Your every wish will be fulfilled.
Lt. Commander Data: I wish to leave.
Kivas Fajo: Almost every wish.

Saul Rubinek guest stars in this Star Trek TNG story in a fascinating portrayal of a very rich man who collects unusual and rare things. He's decided that the most advanced android in the world even though he's a member of Star Fleet is just what he needs to make him the envy of his peers.

I guess you could say Rubinek is a futuristic Donald Trump who few people have ever said 'no' to in his life. I will say he rather cleverly captures Brent Spiner and for a while makes everyone think he's been destroyed. Dead does not seem a proper term for an android.

In his own passive way Data resists mightily and it takes a while for his crew mates on the Enterprise to figure out he's been captured. In the end it works out.

The scenes with Spiner and Rubinek are really fascinating. Don't miss this TNG story.
