The Enterprise makes the first contact with Romulans for over fifty years. With each side blaming the other for attacks on outer rim colonies, it's up to Picard to try and prevent a war...
What a season finale! The first allusions to the, as yet unnamed, Borg. This was very much what Next Gen was about... alot of which is thinking about a problem rather than actually fighting about it.

I think this episode also begins the shift from the Ferengi to the Romulans as the series enemy. And the B-plot helped preach to us about "how far we've come..."
