Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge is in love but too timid to talk to Christy Henshaw. When a space ship's escape pod is found crashed on an uninhabited planet, he is part of the landing party and has his brain connected by Dr. Crusher to the injured sole traveler, but 'John Doe' makes a massive contact and soon recuperates physically at amazing speed by mysterious cell structure mutations. He has amnesia and by instinctively touching a wounded patient proves able to heal instantly. Geordie and Data examine an unusual memory storage capsule from the pod, which allows estimating his origin, but he refuses to return, and causes his powers to manifest themselves differently. At approach, his home planet Zarkon demands his extradition as escaped criminal, to be executed... Written by
