Review:

The return of Scotty! When the Enterprise spots a Federation transport ship that had disappeared 75 years earlier, they encounter a massive gravitation field where no star is apparent. The ship had crashed on a Dyson Sphere, a massive structure the size of a planetary orbit built around a star, which allows the people living within it to harness unlimited energy. Investigating the wreckage of the ship, Chief Engineer Geordi discovers the transporter is locked in a weird mode, and when he unlocks it out pops Captain Montgomery Scott, a.k.a. Scotty (James Doohan), from the original Star Trek series. Though the plot involves Geordi and Scotty teaming up to save the Enterprise after it gets trapped inside the sphere, the heart of the episode revolves around dealing with the elderly. Throughout, Scotty tells stories of the good old days to a younger generation that doesn't really care, specifically Geordi. Picard recognizes the importance of generations who came before, so he forces past and present chief engineers to work together and learn from each other--which they do. In that sense, "Relics" is a sweet tribute to the original show, and what it has to teach. --Andy Spletzer

From the Back Cover:

The Enterprise locates the U.S.S. Jenolan, which crashed 75 years ago on the surface of a Dyson Sphere. Miraculously, an Away Team finds Commander Montgomery Scott (James Doohan - "Scotty" from the original Star Trek series) locked in the matter stream of the ship's transporter.

Back on the Enterprise, Scotty is overwhelmed by the technological marvels of the 24th century and offers to assist Geordi (LeVar Burton) in engineering. Unfortunately, he only succeeds in making a nuisance of himself.

Sensing Scotty's depression, Picard (Patrick Stewart) asks Geordi to accompany the aging engineer back to the Jenolan to run some more tests. Meanwhile, the Enterprise gets trapped inside the Dyson Sphere and Geordi and Scotty are the only ones who can save her!
