Second Chances

Star Trek: The Next GenerationStardate 46915.2: Returning to a planet that a Starfleet research party hastily abandoned eight years ago, an away team finds Lt. Will Riker, a copy of Riker created by a transporter anomaly during his participation in the original evacuation. This Riker has never been assigned to the Enterprise, nor has he resolved his relationship with Troi as the “real” Riker, and his isolation has resulted in a very different personality from the Riker who has served on the Enterprise for six years. His motivations, discipline and judgment differ from his higher-ranking alter-ego, and the two Rikers must stop seeing each other’s perceived failings long enough to assist one another in a dangerous salvage mission.
