  • Collision with a quantum filament leaves Troi in charge of a damaged and endangered Enterprise with emergency bulkheads cutting off sections of the ship.

  • During a period of rest, and just after three elementary school science fair prize winners leave with Capt. Picard for a tour of the ship, the Enterprise hits a quantum filament, trapping its people in different compartments under varying emergencies. Geordi and Dr. Crusher face a plasma fire that begins to destabilize stored supplies into high-yield explosives; Data and Riker face a lethal electrical arc on their only available route to engineering; Worf presides over Keiko O'Brien going into labor; the wounded captain and the school children rally to escape a damaged and dangling turbolift; Troi, as highest in rank on the bridge, faces a crucial decision as the warp core heads toward collapse and ship-wide destruction.

  • After coming into contact with an quantum filament, various members of the crew find themselves trapped in different parts of the ship: Counselor Troi in command of the bridge; Dr. Crusher and Geordi La Forge in a loading bay; Commander Riker and Data in sick bay; Worf and a pregnant Keiko in Ten Forward; and an injured Captain Picard in a turbolift with the three school-age winners of a science contest. The anti-matter containment field has been damaged and, if not rectified, will explode the Enterprise. All do their best to get control of the ship while faced with a wide variety of challenges.

  • Three children, who attend school aboard the Enterprise, win the top prizes in the science fair, earning themselves a tour of the great ship by Captain Picard. When the Enterprise strikes a quantum filament, the resulting collision causes massive destruction throughout the ship. Various groups of crew members - including the captain and the children - have to work together to overcome their precarious situations and get the starship back up and running before the Enterprise falls victim to its threatening situation.
