Stardate 46830.1: Dr. Crusher goes out on a limb by gathering some of the brightest minds in the galaxy aboard the Enterprise to listen to a proposal from Ferengi scientist Reyga for a powerful subspace shield. Skepticism and competition divide the scientists, but a demonstration is arranged, using an Enterprise shuttle. The pilot, who is also one of the scientists, dies when the experiment goes wrong. Beverly, already regretful for the failure of Reyga’s invention, suddenly finds herself in the middle of a murder investiagation when Reyga himself is found dead.
