Rear Admiral
Captain's Holiday

Plot Summary: After a difficult mission, the senior officers convince Picard to take a vacation on Risa. Though Picard wants only to read, he is accosted upon his arrival by a woman who kisses him, then by a Ferengi who believes him to be in league with the woman. When he sees her again, Vash introduces herself and hides a data disc in his pocket. Soon after, two Vorgons appear to Picard to explain that they are from the 27th century and have come to retrieve the Tox Uthat - a powerful weapon hidden in the past to keep it from criminals - that Vorgon records report Picard found. When Picard confronts Vash about the hidden disc, she explains that she worked with the archaeologist who discovered that the Uthat was hidden on Risa. She admits that she took the Ferengi's money, pretending she would find the Uthat for Sovak to sell, but she claims she only wanted passage to Risa to recover the weapon for the Daystrom Institute. Though skeptical, Picard decides that an archaeological dig will be more fun than sitting around on holiday. He accompanies Vash to the Uthat's hiding place, becoming her lover along the way. Both the Ferengi and the Vorgons make claims on the artifact, but Picard and Vash fail to find it. Picard is still suspicious, however, and when he finds Vash sneaking away, he guesses that she already dug up the Uthat, then used him to convince the Ferengi that it could not be found. Just as Vash shows Picard where she hid the Uthat, the Vorgons appear to claim it, but Vash realizes they were the thieves who caused the weapon to be hidden in the first place. Picard signals Riker to beam the device away and produce an explosion on the spot, so that the Vorgons believe it is destroyed. Vash points out that time time traveling robbers may try again, so she and Picard may have to relive their previous encounter.
