Synopsis: En route to a conference on Risa, Commander La Forge is captured by a Romulan ship and brainwashed to perform some service for the Romulans. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is on its way to Krios with Ambassador Kell to investigate claims made by the Klingon governor that the Federation has been supplying weapons to rebels on the planet. The Enterprise determines that the weapons being supplied to the rebels, while appearing to be Federation issue are, in fact, manufactured by the Romulans. While at Krios, La Forge returns to the Enterprise completely unaware that he has been with the Romulans and believing to have spent the time at Risa as planned. He assists Picard in investigating the source of the weapons supplied to the rebels and assists Data in investigating the mysterious E-band signals that the Enterprise has detected. La Forge, under the influence of the Romulans, beams a supply of weapons to the rebels that is intercepted by the governor, causing Vagh to accuse Picard of complicity in the rebellion. When Governor Vagh boards the Enterprise to watch the investigation into the incident, he is nearly assassinated by La Forge, again completely under the influence of the Romulan’s conditioning. During the scenes on the Romulan cruiser when La Forge is being conditioned, a Romulan commander appears in the background hidden in shadows. There has been a lot of speculation as to the identity of the Commander however, the voice of the actress sounds a great deal like Denise Crosby who had left the show.
