Stardate 41153.7: The year is 2364. Captain Jean-Luc Picard has just assumed command of the new USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. En route to Farpoint Station, built by the Bandi on Deneb IV, where the Enterprise is going to pick up new crew members and to investigate mysterious incidents, an immensely powerful being called "Q" inhibits the ship. Q accuses humanity of being an immature species that has to stop exploring the galaxy. Picard orders a saucer separation in order to avert harm to the civilians aboard and then surrenders. He and the battle bridge crew find themselves in an ancient courtroom where Q puts up a trial against humanity. To prove their worthiness, the crew have to solve the "mystery of Farpoint Station". After the ship has arrived at Deneb IV and the investigation has started, an unknown vessel shows up in the planet's orbit, begins to fire on the old Bandi city and kidnaps the Farpoint administrator, Groppler Zorn. An away team beams over to the vessel and discovers that the somehow organic interior is much the same as that of parts of Farpoint Station. It turns out that the Bandi have captured an injured space-dwelling being and coerced it to transform itself into a starbase, and the alien vessel now tries to force the Bandi to release its companion. After the away team has freed Zorn, Picard orders to release the creature on the planet with the help of an energy beam. Q, disappointed that the crew was smarter than he thought, retreats for the time being, while Starfleet provides help to the Bandi to rebuild the station.
