Storyline

Picard is found on Romulus by Senator Pardek, who brings him to Ambassador Spock, who explains his secret 'cowboy diplomacy' is about the off chance of a Vulcan-Romulan reunification thanks to an old, recently significantly grown, philosophically friendly Romulan underground party, which includes the rising new Proconsul Neral, who claims the Romulan senate itself can no longer resist the people's outcry for peace, but is actually in league with Sela. Klingon captain K'Vada isn't amused when Data claims he may be able to crack the Romulan encryption log. As Vulcan-human half-blood Spock and android Data exchange views on the virtues of emotional and cool logical qualities, Commander Riker's investigation into a stolen Vulcan ship continues, starting with the mundane wife of the smuggler who died while pursued and finds a Barolian ship was involved. Spock and Picard fear rightly it all ties together in a Romulan war plot. Written by KGF Vissers

Hope Without Crosby
1 September 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a continuation of the efforts of the Federation to capture Spock and bring him back. He is on Romulus leading a group of peace-seeking rebels. He has been joined by Data and Picard. Spock wishes to play by the rules, but Sera (the daughter of Tasha Yar and a Romulan commander, played by Denise Crosby) has other ideas. Instead of a peace mission going to Vulcan, the Romulans have loaded three ships with warriors to attack Vulcan and start a conflict. To make this a surprise attack they are going to force Spock to make a statement that the Romulans are heading for Vulcan to arrange a peace agreement. Sera tries all she can to force this, but Spock will have none of it, and they are forced to use a hologram. The crew uses great ingenuity from here on. The great stoic Spock hadn't aged so much at this time. Today, Leonard Nimoy seems so old and his voice has betrayed him. There is an incident where we see just how awful the Romulans are (I said in a previous review that they are much like the Soviet Union). Certainly a worthy episode.
