Stardate: 44012.3In the aftermath of his assimilation by the Borg and subsequent recovery, Captain Picard returns home to his family's ancestral French vinery to consider his future as a Starfleet Captain, facing an estranged older brother and the bitter in-fighting that their rivalry has caused to distance them.

Meanwhile, Lt. Worf's human foster parents come to visit him on the ship, much to his trepidation and discomfiture.
