In an attempt to track down a lost medical transport, the Enterprise enters the lone safe corridor in an area of space known to be hazardous to warp-driven vessels. They soon encounter two aliens who demand the cessation of all warp travel in the area, claiming it will damage their planet and the space around it. This episode focuses largely on La Forge: ever the technology lover, he's happily engaged in a friendly competition with the chief engineer of another ship to see who can get the most efficient power conversion levels. The aliens' demands for an immediate halt of all warp transport present a sudden threat to everything that La Forge's heart holds dear. The seriousness of the episode is nicely offset with a silly subplot about Data's attempts to train his cat, Spot. Geordi's speculation that Spot is a creature that by nature cannot be trained is a subtle comment on La Forge's own refusal to believe the aliens' research. --Ali DavisFrom the Back Cover:
When the U.S.S. Fleming, a medical transport, disappears in an area which poses a hazard to warp-driven vehicles, the Enterprise arrives on the scene to investigate. After confronting a Ferengi ship that was spotted in the area, the crew traces the Fleming to a debris field where they encounter a small object that emits a verteron pulse which disables their subspace systems.
Moments later, two aliens board the Enterprise and reveal that they have been disabling the ships in the area in an effort to get Starfleet to investigate. According to their research, the use of warp drives in the area is decimating their planet and may be destroying the very fabric of space.
