Back in orbit of Galorndon Core, the Enterprise detects the oncoming Vulcan ships and moves to intercept. Sela returns to her office to find her three prisoners gone, and is immediately confronted by Riker and two security officers. She shoots at them, but the beam passes through them — holograms. While they are distracted, Spock and Picard emerge from the wall — also a hologram — and incapacitate Sela's guards Spock with a Vulcan neck pinch , Picard with a right hook to the jaw , and get the drop on her.
But she blusters that her forces will be on Vulcan before they can alert anyone. Crusher arrives on the bridge saying she's received an urgent distress signal from Dulisian IV calling for emergency evacuation.
The only vessel in range is a Rutian archaeological vessel , which is ill-equipped to handle the crisis. Just before they divert to assist, they receive a message from Romulan space: at first it appears to be Sela's holographic simulacrum of Spock, but midway through the script changes and Spock — the real Spock — warns them the ships are carrying a Romulan invasion force, and must be stopped at all costs.
The Romulans hastily cut off the transmission, but Riker has heard enough, and tells Dr. Crusher to verify the signal from Dulisian IV, as it is probably fake. Data confirms that the message was sent before the Romulans were able to cut it off.
Sela, now truly stymied, blusters that they will never leave the Senate building. Data rejoins that he has already prepared their escape route, and neck pinches Sela, and the three make good their escape from the senate building.
The Vulcan ships begin to retreat to the Neutral Zone, with the Enterprise in pursuit. Suddenly, a D'deridex -class warbird uncloaks and readies its disruptors; Riker calls red alert and prepares for a fight, but the warbird opens fire, destroying the three Vulcan ships, then re-cloaks as quickly as it appeared. La Forge and Troi note with shock that there were over 2, Romulan troops aboard the Vulcan ships, but the Romulans destroyed their own invasion force rather than let them be captured.
In caves that Pardek never knew about, the remaining underground movement resolves to continue working for change in Romulan society. Picard promises that the Federation will welcome the day when they don't have to be enemies with the Romulans. Picard and Data prepare to beam up to K'Vada's ship, but Spock chooses to remain behind, saying his work has never been more important.

Goofs On the Farpoint station when Beverly meets Riker and he tells her of unusual goings on she tells him her duties are outside the Command structure, yet throughout the remainder of the series it's very clear she's a Bridge Officer. My orders are to examine Farpoint, a starbase built there by the inhabitants of that world. I am still somewhat in awe of its size and complexity.
As for my crew, we are short in several key positions, most notably a first officer. But I'm informed that a Alternate Versions The original version was filmed on 35 millimeter than post produced to broadcast videotape. Starting with this episode, the entire series was remastered to high definition by finding the archived film segments, transferring and recutting it together in HD. Optical effects were also recomposited from film elements.
In this episode a couple things were corrected from the original version. An odd dissolve from one scene to another in the holodeck scene was smoothed over. And while in the original, a scene showing an energy beam emitted from what would be known as the Captain's yacht was corrected and now emits from the phaser rings. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. Add the first question. Country: USA. Riker played along but was more suspicious than ever about the true nature of Farpoint Station.
A similar occurrence happened later as Riker was shopping with Dr. Beverly Crusher. She expressed a certain preference for some cloth and as Riker urged her to investigate with him, the bolt of cloth mysteriously changed to fulfill Dr.
Crusher's desire. The only thing Riker could think of that could explain the hasty construction of the Starbase was that the Bandi might have traded some of their home planet's natural geothermal energy for construction materials, some of which did not occur naturally on Deneb IV.
He expressed his admiration for the Bandi's construction techniques of Farpoint Station and let Zorn know that Starfleet may be interested in having them construct similar starbases elsewhere. Riker also suggested that the Bandi might be interested in a trade: whatever they needed in exchange for architects and engineers. Groppler Zorn was more evasive than ever and let them know that the Bandi did not enjoy leaving their home and they seemed to be totally uninterested in constructing similar bases elsewhere.
