Suspecting a Klingon exobiologist of sabotaging the warp core, an overzealous Starfleet Admiral arrives and begins a witch hunt to find the true culprit. Eventually uncovering another coverup, but one that is not a threat to Federation security...
This episode makes you think about trust and how, if you look hard enough for them, you'll find conspiracies everywhere. There's no action or science fiction themes here, and even in the 24th century Humans can latch onto an idea and run with it even when it becomes ridiculous.

How far should an investigation go to uncover the truth when that truth is leading to facts which no longer have any bearing on Federation security. Just because someone lied about his ancestry, doesn't make him a criminal.
