Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint, Part II

Stardate: 41153.7 While en route to Farpoint, Captain Picard and his crew encounter a god-like being called Q, who places humanity on trial for barbarism. Captain Picard has to prove to Q that the Human race is not barbaric; otherwise, the entire human race will be destroyed.

Meanwhile, on Farpoint, the newly assigned second-in-command, Lt. Cmdr. William Riker, must solve the mysterious goings on, on the planet, before the Federation makes their decision on if they may join the Federation of planets.

Somehow, both Picard and Riker’s separate tasks become intertwined.
