Directed by Win Phelps. With Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Denise Crosby. The Enterprise encounters two neighboring cultures, one suffering from a plague, the other marketing a cure, and learns that nothing is as simple as it seems.
This was pretty well structured to initially hide the fact that the people we’re really dying from the “plague”, but instead were addicted to drugs. This helped it to make some interesting observations from a political perspective and really, isn’t drug addiction like a plague?
