Episode propaganda

The USS Enterprise receives a message from the Sheliak, who order the crew to remove all Humans from the planet Tau Cygna V. According to a treaty, the planet belongs to the race, who want to take control of their property and have given the crew four days to evacuate the men and women now living there. If the Enterprise does not complete the task, the Sheliak will kill all of the Humans, whom they consider vermin. Due to the high level of radiation on Tau Cygna V, to which the colonists have adapted over several generations, Data is the only crew member capable of surviving the mission.
