Star Trek: The Next GenerationStardate 47566.7: A promotion is nearing for one of a group of four friends who are junior officers aboard the Enterprise. Sito, a Bajoran ensign who was involved in the Nova Squadron accident cover-up at Starfleet Academy with Wesley Crusher, is neck-in-neck for a promotion to Ops with the ambitious Lavelle, who is attempting to make a favorable impression on Commander Riker. Vulcan Ensign Taurik is an engineering specialist whose duties of late have grown mysterious, as have those of Nurse Ogawa, who is also due for a promotion. The Enterprise is undertaking a top secret mission, the true purpose of which is unknown to the four friends – though each of them has a piece of the puzzle, and a part to play, in this critical event.
