Episode Notes
Log Entries:
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41235.25. Our location, planet Ligon II. Source of a rare vaccine needed on Federation planet Styris IV. Starfleet has instructed me to engage in a friendly visit and open treaty negotiations to acquire this medicinal substance.
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41235.32. I am concerned over a full day of waiting with no response from Lutan. We are now testing whether they are aware of our sensors probing them. So far, we believe we have pinpointed Lutan's government compound.
*First Officer's Log, supplemental. Captain Picard, faced with a critical need for a vaccine produced on this planet has permitted Lieutenant Natasha Yar to engage in a fight to the death. I have yet to understand his reasoning or his plan.

Michael Dorn (Worf) does not appear in this episode.
