The Next Generation Teaser #002: Encounter at Farpoint II

Nachdem die Enterprise der von dem übermächtigen Q inszenierten Gerichtsverhandlung glücklich entkommen ist, setzt das Schiff die Reise nach Farpoint fort. Dort angekommen, ereignen sich seltsame Dinge: Alle Wünsche scheinen wahr zu werden, die telepathisch begabte Deanna Troi verspürt starke Schmerzen und schließlich wird genau in dem Moment, als ein Landeteam ein unterirdisches Gewölbe entdeckt, "Farpoint Station" von einem unbekannten, riesigen Raumschiff beschossen. Die Crew der Enterprise muss erkennen, dass die gesamte Station ein gigantisches Lebewesen ist, welches verletzt auf dem Planeten angekommen war und nun von den Bewohnern gefangengehalten wird. Der unbekannte Angreifer entpuppt sich als zweites extraterrestrisches Wesen, welches gekommen ist, seinen "Kameraden" zu retten. Zu allem Überfluss erscheint auch noch Q auf der Bildfläche...
Synopsis
At the trial, Q continues to denounce humans, while Picard defends his race and convinces Q that the upcoming mission at Farpoint will be the perfect opportunity to prove his point.

Q accepts the Captain's proposal but gives him only 24 hours and a reminder that failing this test will mean death for the Enterprise crew.

While docked at Farpoint, Picard is introduced to his new first officer, Commander Riker, and the rest of his crew. As they begin to investigate the station, they are startled by the seemingly magical qualities of the planet where one's wish becomes reality.

While the away team searches through tunnels beneath the Farpoint station, an unidentified ship begins firing on the old Bandi city, causing heavy damage and numerous casualties. As it turns out, the ship is a living alien being who is attacking the city because the people of Deneb IV have captured its mate.

Not only have the Bandi been holding the being against its will, but they have used its energy source, which converts energy into matter, to create the Farpoint station and its magical qualities.

After assisting the reunion of the estranged aliens, the crew learns that it has passed Q's test. Relieved, they head off for their next mission.
