When the away team beams back to the ship, several energy creatures from the shelter transport with them and enter the ship's systems. The creatures begin draining power from the ship while the nearby star shows signs of going nova again. Troi communicates with the creatures and learns that they feed on stellar nova and were responsible for the nova under investigation. To prevent them from using the Enterprise to travel through Federation space creating supernovae, Data devises a scheme to contain the creatures.

Kartakkan readies himself for his flight through the jaws of death. (Michael Jan Friedman; Pablo Marcos;) 54 Nov 93 Hidden agendas, 3 Dixon Hill deduces who the murderer is, based upon the bottle of wine he and Red were served.

When Riker finds his shipmates, Troi is examining some cargo containers. She has sensed a semi-sentient species sealed in the container. Other rare animals are found in sealed containers. The circus performers, all smugglers, get the drop on the Enterprise crew, but Picard, still dressed as Dixon Hill arrives with a security team, to save the day. Picard muses about Q's real agenda during this visit while Data and Capt. Louvois repair their shuttle. As they begin to restore power, an oncoming ship is on a collision course with the shuttle. (Michael Jan Friedman; Pablo Marcos, Bob Pinaha;) 55 Dec 93 The good of the many Data and Capt. Louvois are uninjured after an alien ship collides with their disabled shuttlecraft. The occupants of the other vessel are not so lucky. A second alien vessel appears. Data and Louvois are arrested for "disproportionate destruction of lives" and brought to trial by the Terviorii. Their legal system is dedicated to the welfare of the majority and since nine individuals lost their lives, Data and Louvois have no defense. Data tries and fails to argue their case. Capt. Louvois argues that Data is a unique life-form, the sole representative of his race, therefore his rights "outweigh those of any group comprising less than an entire race". Her argument convinces the Terviorii to drop all charges. Meanwhile, back on the Enterprise: Dr. Crusher sends a message to Wesley, detailing her recent encounter with Q; the Klingon flowers in the garden are doing poorly and Worf misses Keiko O'Brien's botanical skills; Picard reaffirms his support for Riker after receiving a copy of Capt.

(Michael Jan Friedman; Deryl Skelton, Steve Carr; Jason Palmer, Jerome Moore) 56 Jan 94 Companionship, 1 Lwaxana Troi is travelling with the Enterprise to attend a diplomatic conference. The Eregeus are considering joining the Federation and their neighbors, the Sakerions, are hosting the conference. Lwaxana convinces Picard that Alexander and his classmates should attend the conference to get "a taste of democracy in action". Picard agrees, as long as Worf and a security team accompany the children. Also attending the conference are Deanna, Geordi, Dr. Crusher, and Dr. Selar. When the Enterprise away team arrives at the conference hall, they are attacked by unseen assailants. Worf, Alexander, Geordi, Lwaxana, Deana, and Selar are abducted, and awaken in a laboratory.

(Michael Jan Friedman; Deryl Skelton;) 57 Mar 94 Of two minds, 2 Worf/Lwaxana, Deanna/Alexander, and Selar/Geordi fight their way past Eregean guards, taking advantage of skills from both minds in each body. Aboard the Enterprise, the Sakerions inform Picard of Eregean mind transfer techniques and the strong likelihood that the Enterprise crew members were kidnapped to serve as hosts for the ruling Eregean triumvirate. When Lwaxana, Alexander, and Geordi escape via transporter, Picard must find the bodies belonging to Worf, Deanna, and Selar before it is too late to transfer their minds back.

While Barclay tries to trace the transporter beam which was used to abduct the Starfleet officers, three away teams beam down to the planet. All three missing bodies are found with suspicious ease and Barclay traces the transporter beam to an unexpected source. The Sakerionites have been setting up the Eregeans as fall guys (fall aliens?), in order to hide their crimes against Eregeus. Thanks to Barclay's efforts, Picard creates a ruse of his own to expose the Sakerionites. The grateful Eregeans help reunite separated minds and bodies. Worf, of course, is dismayed at having had such an intimate encounter with Lwaxana. (Michael Jan Friedman; Deryl Skelton; Jason Palmer, Jerome Moore) 59 May 94 Children of chaos, 1 On Chalna, Capt.
