#4 Sep 1993
A house divided
The Enterprise arrives at penal colony Tantalus VII in advance of a moving pulsar to evacuate a few remaining prisoners and staff. When Picard, Data, and Dr. Crusher beam over to the prison, an unidentified and heavily armed boarding party also beams aboard. Dr. Crusher is discomposed by the presence of Odan (The Host), her Trill lover, and still in a female host. Odan is there to oversee the transport of a dangerous Trill prisoner, Keb Dalor. While Dalor is being moved, a Romulan vessel uncloaks and attacks the Enterprise. The armed boarding party attacks and disables the away team and prison staff, but Dalor is critically wounded. Riker and the Enterprise destroy the Romulan ship, leaving the away team hostage on Tantalus. Trelia, the renegade Romulan commander, forces Dr. Crusher to implant Dalor into Picard. After the transfer, Dalor kills the remaining prison staff, orders the Enterprise computer to gas all decks, and takes over the ship. When Riker and the rest of the crew recover, they begin countermeasures, but Dalor manages to take his party, Dr. Crusher and Odan to the battle bridge and separate from the saucer section. Dalor is inexperienced at starship combat and can't subdue Riker and the saucer section in spite of having superior speed and weaponry. He is also weakening in Picard's body. Odan and Dr. Crusher do their best to reduce the odds but when Trelia is injured, Dalor plays on Crusher's morality to make her come to the battle bridge and render medical aid. Dalor takes Dr. Crusher hostage, sacrificing Trelia. Riker has lured Dalor back to Tantalus where he, Geordi, and Data beam aboard the station to use the prison's power to punch a hole in the battle section's shields. Once the hole is made, Data beams Dalor and Trelia from the battle bridge and uses the transporter to separate Dalor from Picard. Dalor is reassembled in Trelia's unconscious body where he is helpless. Dr. Crusher and Odan still have tender memories of one another, but for now, Crusher can't deal with anything more than memories. Stardate 46759.2

#5 Nov 1994
Brother's keeper
While on a mission to discuss an alliance with the Timatrans, the Enterprise encounters a large, abandoned space station near a radiation anomaly. An away team investigates and the anomaly explodes, damaging the Enterprise and blocking all communications. When a second away team arrives on the station, they find LaForge and Worf injured, but alive. If Data were human, he would be pronounced dead. LaForge feels responsible for Data's death and is determined to repair his friend, while repairs to the Enterprise continue. While trying to get some rest, LaForge dreams about his friend and is convinced that there is a clue to helping Data in his dream. Data briefly regains consciousness, but LaForge can't prove he is on the right track. Picard orders the Enterprise to leave and must defend his Chief Engineer's decision to spend time trying to repair Data rather than working on the Enterprise. LaForge makes one last risky attempt to help Data by stealing a shuttle and returning to the space station. His faith convinces Picard to return as well. LaForge finds information on the radiation in the station's memory banks which allows him to restore Data's neural net. Stardate 47512.3
