Stardate 42625.4: Riker, Worf and Data transport to the surface of what should be a poison-shrouded world after finding debris of a NASA space vessel, and discover a structure containing a reproduction of the literary Hotel and Casino Royale. Within the hotel lies the remains of the astronaut whose last possession was the cheap novel upon which the Royale was based. The Away Team’s only help is from the book itself as they read their lines – and between their lines.
