Editorial Reviews

Investigating the disappearance of the USS Drake, the Enterprise receives a message from a seemingly uninhabited world. It turns out to be nothing more than an ancient, prerecorded sales pitch (delivered with sleepy enthusiasm by long-faced character actor Vincent Schiavelli) welcoming visitors to Minos, the arms market of the universe. Beaming down to the planet, Riker, Tasha, and Data wander about a lush forest before encountering a series of flying sentinels (vaguely resembling outboard motors minus their propellers), the first easily destroyed by phaser fire, but subsequent incarnations adapting themselves to the crewmembers' attacks. Meanwhile, Picard and Dr. Crusher also go exploring, finding themselves trapped in an underground cave where the captain must tend to the doctor's broken leg. With both Picard and Riker on the planet, La Forge finds himself in command for the first time; he's not the only one questioning whether he's ready for the job. Though the situation is old hat and unfolds with a certain tattered predictability, this is one of the better outings of The Next Generation's first season. The characters are fleshed out without resorting to too much overdrawn dialogue (even the usually aggravating almost-romance between Picard and Crusher is subtly drawn); in particular it's Geordi's day to shine, and LeVar Burton brings a nice self-confidence to the heretofore submissive engineer. Overlooking the studio-bound landscapes typical of early Star Trek, the episode also features some impressive effects in the brief scenes of the Enterprise's saucer separation, a clever device that fortunately was never overused on the show. Nothing groundbreaking, though no major missteps either. --Bruce Reid

From the Back Cover

After the disappearance of the U.S.S. Drake, an away team beams down to the planet Minos to search for survivors. While exploring the planet, the team is assailed by an energy sphere that traps Riker (Jonathan Frakes) in an impenetrable, transparent cube.

Meanwhile, the Enterprise has fallen under the attack of an invisible enemy that thwarts all attempts to rescue the crew members on Minos. LaForge (LeVar Burton) traces the attacks to a computer-generated weaponry system that went out of control and destroyed the civilization that created it. Can the starship crew deactivate the pernicious computer in time to save the planet... and themselves?

Costarring Vincent Schiavelli (Ghost).
