On a distant planet, Data discovers the body of Lt. Tasha Yar, a former crew-member thought to be dead. While some of the crew are happy to see their lost comrade, others remain skeptical of her intentions. The appearance of a Romulan Warbird increases panic, and the Enterprise finds itself under attack from outside and within. Impending danger evokes lustful desires, as the crew turns to each other for comfort. Data and Tasha Yar rekindle their old flame, Troi and Riker put the Holodeck to use, and Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher finally have their moment of passion.
