Stardate: 41509.1 An ancient mythical race, which has been able to cloak their planet from outsiders, is discovered by accident by the Enterprise. However, the crew’s awe at finding this race is soon turned to consternation, as the planet’s inhabitants' abduct several the crews’ children. The crew learns that the inhabitants can no longer procreate, and need their children to continue their population.
Wesley Crusher, along with the other children, decides to fight their abduction by the inhabitants, while Dr. Crusher soon discovers the answer to the planet’s procreation problem.
However, can the crew convince the more technically advanced and powerful race that they have the answer to their dilemma, and get their children back?
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41509.1. Either by chance or intent we've been led to the planet Aldea which appeared out of nowhere hidden behind a sophisticated shielding device.
*Captain's Log, supplemental. We remain in orbit around Aldea. It's becoming all too evident that talk will not effect the return of our children. We must neutralize the Aldean shield. Until then, we are helpless.
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41512.4. We are 20 hours away from Aldea and no closer to a solution. Their deliberate show of force pushed us out of orbit and could've easily disintegrated the ship.
*Captain's Log, supplemental. It has been three days since the Aldeans pushed us away. We have had no contact with Radue since then.
