In 1100101 the crew of the enterprise make a pit stop at a starbase where the computer will undergo a reconditioning/optimization by a rather enigmatic and quirky species known as the Binars. Binars are almost literally joined at the hip. Most of the crew choose to disembark and enjoy the many pleasures a starbase may have to offer.
A few crew members remain on board, but are soon ushered off the ship by a malfunction which causes a red alert. Captain Picard and Commander Riker don't notice this red alert because they are distracted on the holodeck by a rather delightful holographic person named Minuet.
Riker and Picard finally catch on that the red alert was faked in order to get the Enterprise to the Binar's homeworld. With the Binars subdued because of some malfunction in their connection to their homeworld, Picard and Riker must figure it out in a short amount of time.
