Responding to a distress call from a Telarian observation craft, the Enterprise rescue team discovers a human boy on board. Investigating, they learn that he is being raised by the Telarian who killed his parents...
The family story trend continues, with this episode all about a young boy who was taken by an enemy and raised as one of them. This is also the beginning, in my view, of the softening of Picard... after his experiences at the start of the season, he has changed - he is no longer adhering to the rule book while not much else matters.
