No English translation available yetDr. Beverly Crusher hat die Enterprise verlassen und ihre Nachfolgerin Dr. Pulaski bekommt im Verlauf der zweiten Staffel ausreichend Gelegenheit, ihre Fertigkeiten als Ärztin zu beweisen. Neben diversen Einzelabenteuern, die sich vornehmlich mit diplomatischen Missionen beschäftigen, gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit Q. Als ihm die Bitte verweigert wird, Mitglied der Enterprise zu werden, versetzt er das Schiff in einen anderen Quadranten. Dort trifft die Crew erstmals auf die Borg. Auch Datas Persönlichkeit ist Thema einiger Folgen. Unter anderem gilt es zu klären, ob der Androide selber über sein Leben bestimmen darf.
During an adventure on the holodeck, in which Data is portraying Sherlock Holmes, Geordi asks the computer to create a Moriarty adversary capable of defeating Data. Since the request specifies that Moriarty should be greater than *Data* himself (and not the Holmes character), the resulting character proves himself capable of far exceeding their expectations...
The Enterprise rescues the captain of a broken-down freighter, only to become involved in a dispute between feuding worlds--each demanding custody of their guest. Data seeks help from Guinan in understanding humor.
Data's "grandfather", Dr. Ira Graves, is close to death. Dr. Graves transfers his mind, will and emotions into Data and expires. Data now has two personalities, his own being slowly erased by that of Dr Graves. Thus, Data is "The Schizoid Man".
The Enterprise responds to a distress call from the USS Lantree, and find her crew dead, apparently from old age. The investigation leads them to a research station on Gagarin IV, where Pulaski and the station's staff undergo rapid aging from genetically enhanced children.
Commander Riker's loyalties are put to the test when he is assigned to a Klingon vessel that plans to attack the Enterprise. In the meantime, a visiting alien fails to report a serious problem because his culture expects him also to provide a solution, and he does not yet have one.
When Data resigns his commission rather than be dismantled for examination by an inadequately skilled scientist, a formal hearing is convened to determine whether Data is considered property without rights or is a sentient being.
A pretty girl, Salia, comes aboard the Enterprise with her diminutive guardian. She is to be taken to her home planet where she will fulfill her duty as the one to bring peace to the warring factions. Wesley falls for the girl and is no good to anyone as he woos her. Later we find she and her guardian are allomorphs, what in later sci-fi series are called shape shifters. Her guardian transforms into a monster that takes on Worf, and wins. Salia's natural form is something not as attractive to Wes, souring his ardor.
The "Enterprise" is called to help a sister ship - in the neutral zone - that is having major system problems. They are able to download the ship's logs from a distance. Unfortunately, the ship is destroyed before they arrive. Then problems start to happen with the Enterprise's computer systems - and then the Romulans show up.
The Enterprise discovers debris from a mid 21st century NASA spacecraft around a inhospitable planet. They then discover a zone of breathable area with a structure on it. When Riker, Worf and Data beam down they are trapped in a mid 80's Las Vegas Casino that is based around a poorly written novel entitled 'The Hotel Royale.'
The Enterprise comes upon a disabled Federation Shuttle containing one life sign. When they bring it on board they discover that it contains an unconscious duplicate Picard. The plot thickens when they discover that the duplicate Picard is from six hours in the future and that he is the only survivor from his Enterprise's destruction.
The Enterprise is investigating the Drema region of space, where the planets are tearing themselves apart. During Data's investigation of signals he becomes pen pals with a little girl named Sarjenka who lives on Drema IV. When Data discovers that her planet is in danger of imminent destruction, he informs the Captain that he has been breaking the Prime Directive by talking to someone from a planet without space travel. Meanwhile, William Riker puts Wesley Crusher in charge of the mineral surveys to determine what's causing the quakes and volcanic eruptions on Drema IV in order to further Wesley's education as a Starfleet ensign. Wesley is talked out of ordering a time-consuming analysis by the older crew members under his command. After talking to Riker, Wesley gains the confidence to order the tests, which quickly reveal the cause of the geological disturbances, and Picard agrees to help save the planet. After Data loses his connection to the girl, he beams down to the planet to find her and returns her to the ship. The Enterprise saves the planet, and after the girl's mind is wiped of the memories of Data, she is beamed back to her now-safe planet.
An urgent distress signal, leads the U.S.S. Enterprise to save a lost colony about to be destroyed by stellar flares. The Bringloidi colony - which consists of over 200 humans and their animals. - had rejected modern science and was living a pre-industrial Irish life. The entire population is transported to the Enterprise. Piccard learns that the original, colony ship was shared with a science-oriented group. The other lost colony is located near by. The enterprise crew learns that the entire Mariposan society is composed of clones made from the five crew members who survived their ship's crash landing. Unfortunately, due to Replicative Fading, they will soon be unable to clone themselves and their society will die. The U.S.S. Enterprise officers are asked to donate their DNA so they can clone new citizens - which is refused. The Mariposans then render Riker and Dr Pulaski unconscious and take the DNA. Upon returning to the U.S.S. Enterprise, Dr. Pulaski discovers that both she and Riker are missing cells so they beam down and destroy their developing clones. Picard suggests that the two colony merge and breed naturally. Initially reluctant, both sides agree.
Deanna Troi's Mother - Lwaxana Troi - shows up on the Enterprise with the plan to marry Captain Jean-Luc Picard. When Captain Picard hides in the holodeck. She announces she is engaged to Commander William T. Riker. When Lwaxana finds them both in the holodeck she falls for a holodeck character.
The Enterprise beams aboard an emissary from Starfleet Command. She informs them that a Klingon vessel - the T'Ong - whose crew has been in cryogenic sleep for almost a century. When they awake they will still believe that the Klingon's are at war with the Federation and since they will be near some Federation outposts, which they would immediately attack. Unknown to the crew of the Enterprise Worf and K'Ehleyr - a half-human, half-Klingon female - were once linked romantically. Picard asked them to come up with a plan to stop the Klingon ship, they argue and K'Ehleyr storms out. K'Ehleyr goes to the Holodeck and selects Worf's calisthenics program - which is a battle against deadly aliens. Worf joins her for the exercise. After winning the battle and the resulting intimacy, Worf asks her to take the Klingon oath of marriage, which traditionally follows intimacy, but she refuses. Then Enterprise approaches the T'Ong. Worf dressed in full Klingon Captain's regalia and presents himself to the T'Ong as the captain of the Enterprise. He convinces that the Klingons are now members of the Federation. As K'Ehleyr prepares to take command of the Klingon vessel Worf and her reconcile their differences.
The Enterprise crew is ordered to participates in an elaborate Federation war game - in preparation for the Borg - in which Riker will command an inferior 80 year old ship. The Enterprise is joined by Kolrami who is a battle strategist from Zakdorn, who are know as having the most strategic minds in the known galaxy. Kolrami doesn't believe Riker is any good. However, Riker does a number of clever tricks to even the odds of the mock battle, but then a Ferengi battleship decides to join in since the Enterprise's weapons are off line for the war game. Riker and Picard trick the Ferengi and they flee. Kolarmi then agrees that Riker is one of the best.
Riker is injured on an away mission and is infected with a "virus" that binds to his nerves. The virus quickly grows and he is close to death and falls into a coma. In order to keep him alive Doctor Pulaski stimulates his brain and Riker starts dreaming (flashbacks) about happy times from the previous shows. Troi and Doctor Pulaski quickly discover that the type of brain stimulation affects the emotions of the dream which in turn affects the virus and as they try stimulating different parts of the brain the result is different kinds of flashbacks and affects on the virus. They finally find that the fear emotion kills the virus and they stimulate the fear center and the virus is killed.
