Stardate 41601.3: A shuttle with Deanna and another crew member, Prieto, crashes on Vagra III. Riker, Data, Tasha and Beverly beam down to rescue them, but something like a tar pit moves in their way. It turns out to be an unknown lifeform that calls itself Armus. When Tasha tries to get to the shuttle, Armus kills her. Dr. Crusher's attempts to revive Tasha fail. An away team tries in vain to get Armus to release the shuttle. In the meantime Deanna has found out that Armus was created and left behind by the former inhabitants of the planet, as a concentrate of their whole bad emotions - the pure evil. Wesley and Worf analyze the power output of Armus, and they discover that it drops whenever the creature is irate. Picard beams down and provokes Armus, thereby allowing Deanna and Prieto to be beamed up. Back on the Enterprise, the bridge crew attend a commemoration with a recorded hologram of Tasha.
