Stardate 44215.2: Rushing into dangerous territory on Turkana III, a planet whose government once warned that any Federation personnel would die if they visited there again, the Enterprise is looking for an escape pod containing two men who left a critically damaged vessel. The pod has landed on Turkana III, requiring an away team to visit. They find two “cadres” – urban gangs so large they have replaced the government and now conduct their street fighting on a warlike scale – one of which is willing to help find the Federation shipwreck survivors. The Enterprise’s liason to the cadre is the younger sister of the late Tasha Yar, and no one knows whether or not to trust her.
