Rear Admiral
Suddenly Human

Plot Summary: When the Enterprise responds to a distress call from a Talarian vessel, the away team discovers that one of the five teenagers on the training mission is human. Data learns that the boy, Jono, was born Jeremiah Rossa - the son of two Federation colonists killed in a Talarian attack. Crusher discovers that the boy has had broken ribs and tells Picard she suspects Jono was abused by the Talarians. But Jono considers himself Talarian and follows that planet's customs; he has no respect for female crewmembers, and he will only respond to direct orders from Picard because he holds the rank of captain. Jono demands to be turned over to Captain Endar, whom Picard learns is Jono's adoptive father as well as his commanding officer, but Picard is eager to bring Jeremiah home safely to his grandmother, a Starfleet admiral. Troi encourages Picard to help Jono explore his human background, yet warns that Jono is sure to resent the people keeping him from Endar - who dismisses Picard's insinuations of abuse by explaining that the injuries were part of Talarian youth training. When Picard refuses to release Jono, Endar summons Talarian warships and threatens to attack the Enterprise. Picard encourages Jono to remember his parents and enjoy human experiences like sports and ice cream. Jono seems to be coming to terms with being human, but then he stabs the captain in the chest, explaining that he hopes to be executed for this action so Picard cannot force him to choose between his Talarian family and his human heritage. Though Riker plans to hold the boy in custody, Picard pardons Jono and releases him to Endar, saying that the real crime would be depriving Jono of the only home he knows. Jono says farewell to Picard in Talarian custom.
