  • Stardate Unknown
  • Released May 1990

While searching for the U.S.S. Huxley, a starship missing for over ten years, the U.S.S. Enterprise stumbles across a forgotten colony of humans on a planet called Rampart—a world where fiction, speculation, and works of the imagination are considered the ultimate crime.

A civil war whose outcome will determine not only the future of the planet Rampart, but the life of Captain Jean-Luc Picard as well.
