Riker gets to belt Picard this time! Picard responds by belting Baran! Worf and Data are all polite to each other! James Worthy is a Klingon! And the bad guy pretends to be a good guy pretending to be a bad guy! The TNG Rewatch romps through "Gambit, Part II."
Upon beaming back, Picard gives Baran the artifact and then gives him a knuckle sandwich. When Narik reveals that Riker betrayed them on Baran’s order, they all stand against Baran. When Baran tries to reassert his authority by using the neural implant, he instead kills himself. Picard reveals that he switched the transponder codes. (And he didn’t do this sooner why?)
