A game of Poker. Commander William T. Riker lays down his cards and waits to see his opponent's hand. Wesley Crusher puts down a full house and cheerfully pulls the winnings to his side of the table until... he is interrupted by the disembodied voice of Commander Riker, calling him to join an away team. Crusher ends the holodeck program and heads for the transporter room.
In one of The Armada's domes Picard and Riker talk to a farmer, Hommun, as they inspect a crop. Like the quadrotriticale, plomeek, and uttaberries all over The Armada it is brittle as glass and utterly inedible. Data reports initial scans indicate cellular breakdown of the minerals in the soil.
