When a new android created by Starfleet is apparently destroyed in a freak explosion, Lieutenant Commander Data and the crew of the Enterprise-E embark on a search for the truth and find themselves thrust into a crossfire between a secret group of ancient androids and the immortal android maker, Flint.
Along the way, Data is forced to confront issues of grief, love and immortality as we explore the nature of artificial intelligence and what it means to be human in the Star Trek universe.
