The Enterprise visits a solar system that is being torn apart by unknown geological forces. Riker, eager to forward Wesley's training as an officer, puts him in charge of the geological survey team of Drema Four. Wesley is eager for the work, but worries about giving orders to older and more experienced crew members. Meanwhile, Data picks up a call from Drema Four's surface, and begins what he thinks is a harmless exchange with a child named Sarjenka. (Look carefully under Sarjenka's makeup and you might recognize a very young Nikki Cox.) When it becomes clear that Drema Four is doomed to the same fate as the other planets in the system, Data reveals his friendship to the crew. You guessed it--it just might be time to violate the Prime Directive. For those who always found it a cop-out, this episode contains one of the more extensive discussions of the Prime Directive, and goes a long way towards explaining why it's so important. --Ali Davis

From the Back Cover:

Data (Brent Spiner) has found a pen pal - a girl named Sarjenka (Nikki Cox) who lives on the planet Drema Four. When Data tells Picard (Patrick Stewart) about Sarjenka, he learns that there have been severe geological disturbances beneath Drema Four's surface.

Riker (Jonathan Frakes) puts Wesley (Wil Wheaton) in charge of the team to research the planet's geological makeup. Wesley soon discovers that the older crew members under his command are opinionated and willful, and he fears he may lack the confidence to be a good leader.

When Data loses contact with Sarjenka, Picard agrees to let Data beam down to Drema Four to try to locate her before the planet self-destructs. As the danger escalates, Wesley holds the only hope of saving Drema Four, Sarjenka and Data.
