Relics by Michael Jan FriedmanThe U.S.S. Enterprise discovers the wreckage of a starship upon the monstrous surface of a Dyson sphere, an artificially-constructed habitat built around a star; and preserved in a weak transporter pattern is Starfleet engineering legend Montgomery Scotty Scott. Mr. Scott boards the Enterprise to find himself lost in a world that he barely recognizes, a world that has passed him by. But soon the Enterprise finds itself trapped within the Dyson sphere and pulled into the star, and Scotty must work with Lt. Geordi La Forge to rescue the Enterprise.
Star Trek The Next Generation Relics
The Enterprise discovers a ship that crashed on a Dyson sphere more than seventy-five years prior with a single survivor suspended in the transporter buffer: Captain Montgomery Scott. As the Enterprise drops out of warp to respond to the signal, the starship is rocked violently by a massive gravitational field. The sphere's dimensions are consistent with those of the until then theoretical structure known as a Dyson sphere. The sphere's size creates massive gravimetric interference that interferes with sensors , preventing the Enterprise from locating it before the ship had dropped out of warp. The Enterprise locates the Jenolan , having crashed on the surface of the sphere. Surprisingly, power readings are still emanating from the crashed ship and life support systems are still operating.
There's nothing inherently wrong with Troi. Again, it's consequences, and Troi's presence is a sign of the show's commitment to thinking things through. It's just, that commitment seems to stop when the writers run into gender roles. By this point in the show, nearly the entire ensemble has been fleshed out and developed to more than stock roles, but Troi remains "The Girl," occasionally effective, all too often forced to behave like a cast-off from a '70s sitcom. Really, "Man of the People" isn't the worst treatment she's had on the series. Apart from a bizarre line about "I'm going to reward myself with two ice cream sundaes," I can't even explain exactly why this sounds so wrong, but it made me shudder Troi comes across as normal enough.

In this episode, while investigating the year-old wreck of a Federation transport vessel, the Enterprise crew discovers the former Chief Engineer of Captain James T. The starship Enterprise , responding to a distress call, drops out of warp to discover a nearby Dyson sphere. They trace the distress call to the USS Jenolan , a Federation transport ship that has been reported missing for 75 years, and which has crashed on the sphere's outer shell. La Forge discovers that the Jenolan ' s transporter has been jury-rigged to sustain two life signals within its pattern buffer indefinitely, though one has degraded too far to be recovered. La Forge reverses the process and restores the remaining life form, which turns out to be former Starfleet officer Captain Montgomery Scott. Scott explains during a check up of his health aboard the Enterprise that he was only a passenger aboard the Jenolan during his retirement, but when the ship was caught in the Dyson sphere's gravity field, only he and one other officer survived the crash, and Scott had rigged the transporter to try to keep them "alive" until a rescue vessel could arrive.
