Stardate: 41461.2 Wesley takes the Star Fleet entrance exam, which ends up testing his metal more than his mental abilities. This is more than he expected, and raises some old ghosts from his past.

Meanwhile, Admiral Quinn and his assistant, Lt. Cmdr. Remmick beam aboard to grill the crew over their past actions, thus upsetting the crews’ normal duties, and also endangering one teen’s life, when his decision to run away in a shuttle leads to near disaster.

Episode Notes
Log Entries:
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41416.2. We are orbiting Relva VII where Wesley Crusher is about to be tested for entrance to Starfleet Academy. And to my great surprise, I have just learned that my old friend, Admiral Gregory Quinn is on Relva VII and has requested to be beamed aboard the Enterprise immediately.

The thread of a conspiracy aboard Enterprise is concluded surprisingly in the later episode Conspiracy, with both Admiral Quinn and Lt. Cmdr. Remmick reappearing.
