Stardate 42923.4: The Enterprise undertakes Federation-mandated wargames, as Zacdorn tactical observer Sima Kolrami observes and, more often, pesters the crew. Picard is pitted against Riker in a maneuver that is harmless until a Ferengi attack puts the crew of the Enterprise and the Hathaway, Riker’s vessel in a no-win situation – to which Riker has the key.
