Episode Info

October 16, 1993, the first part of this episode begins on a somber (if familiar) note when it appears as if Captain Picard is dead. While investigating this presumed tragedy, Riker is kidnapped and spirited away to an outlaw ship that has been looting other planets. His outrage turns to shock and disillusionment when he finds Picard among the mercenaries. While the answer to Picard's behavior is provided during part one of "Gambit," viewers would have to wait until the following week to witness the outcome of the story, which was written by Christopher Hatton and Naren Shankar.
