Synopsis: A mysterious woman arrives on Ventax claiming to be the woman named Ardra who once promised the Ventaxians 1000 years of peace and prosperity in exchange for ownership of the planet and the people. The Ventaxians appeal to the Enterprise for help and it becomes Captain Picard’s responsibility to prove that Ardra is a fraud, the contract made 1000 years ago is invalid and that her diabolical powers are nothing more than a trick.
