Star Trek: The Next Generation Special DC Comics one-shots

#1 Sep 1993
Good listener
Guinan agrees to establish a saloon on a mining colony for an old friend. Unfortunately, many of the miners are suffering from some sort of emotional epidemic which the medtechs can't explain. A Federation environmental watchdog is also concerned that a native species may be sentient and that mining operations may be hazardous to the local ecology. Riker and Dr. Crusher bring an away team to research the mysterious ailment. Several Enterprise crewmembers suffer from intense emotional episodes, until one of Worf's security officers, a low-level telepath, discovers that the native creatures are probing his mind and amplifying his inner fears. The Tordohh, as they call themselves, are telepaths. Once a technological society, they returned to a simpler life and now insist that the Federation leave. As she leaves, Guinan leaves the Tordohh with a little gotcha for invading everyone's thoughts rather than trying to communicate with the Federation. Stardate 46541.2

The choice
An away team investigates an unmanned observatory which has been destroyed by unknown beings. One possibility is that the assailants are Seraphami, the same race that Ro Laren met on Garon Two, where she disobeyed orders, resulting in the death of her commanding officer, her court-martial, and imprisonment. As present circumstances unfold, it looks as if history is going to repeat itself. Ro, who has been given a second chance by Picard, must give herself a second chance and risk Riker's life to prevent a tragedy.
