Tam Elbrun and Gomtuu appear on the outskirts of the Alpha Quadrant, but something isn’t right, as Gomtuu attacks a starbase. Attempts to reach Tam or Gomtuu all fail. The living vessel must be stopped before anyone else comes to harm, but what could cause such a violent attack from such a gentle creature? 
- Captain Robert DeSoto: "Captain, afraid I have some urgent orders for you. Gomtuu, the living ship known as the ‘Tin Man’, has reappeared with a bang. It attacked and destroyed much of Starbase 42. The vessel was unresponsive to any attempts at communication."
- Ensign Picard: "The same goes for its last known inhabitant, Tam Elbrun. We’ve even tried to enlist the help of several Betazoids, but to no avail. This is nothing like the docile pair that left us."
- Captain Robert DeSoto: "We need you to find them. I realize there are many who are worried about the ship and her occupant, but we can’t risk another Starbase 42. Bring them in alive if you can. But do what you have to for the greater good."
- Tam Elbrun: "Stop...please...we cannot...fight them..."
- Choice A: Are you all right?
- Tam Elbrun: "They tried to get inside my head...he tries to protect me...even now...but can't...last much longer..."
- Choice B: Why did you two attack a starbase?
- Tam Elbrun: "We didn't...not by choice...please...make them stop..."
- Choice C: Where have you two been all this time?
- Tam Elbrun: "Delta...we encountered them there..."
- Captain Robert DeSoto: "I think it's clear that Tam at least is in distress. But sensors indicate they're gearing up for another attack. Captain, I'm afraid you'll have to engage them once more. If you can, subdue them and bring them home."
- Ensign Picard: "Impressive work, Captain. Gomtuu has ceased its onslaught and seems ready to go willingly for further evaluation. | can assure you Captain DeSoto and his crew will.."
- Infected Tryla Scott: "l'll handle it from here. We appreciate your hard work apprehending the rogue Betazoid and his bio ship."
- Captain Robert DeSoto: "You'll what!? On whose authority? We were dispatched to bring Tin Man in for evaluation."
- Infected Tryla Scott: "Your orders have changed. You can make your way back to assist with the recovery operation at Starbase 42, where your expertise may be of better use. That is all."
