Episode propaganda

While en-route to Starfleet Academy, where Picard is scheduled to deliver the year's commencement address, the crew learns of a devastating in-flight accident involving Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) and his squadron. While all five ships involved were destroyed, Wesley, his squadron leader, Nicholas Locarno (Robert Duncan McNeill) and two other crew Sito (Shannon Fill) and (Richard Rothenberg) managed to transport to safety. However, the fifth team member, Wesley's good friend Joshua Albert, was killed instantly.

Picard, Doctor Crusher and the rest of the cadets' parents watch as Admiral Brand (Jacqueline Brookes), the Academy Superintendent, begins an investigation, questioning the four surviving cadets about the fatal flight. When the Admiral finds discrepancies between their testimony and the flight plan they had filed, the squadron's leader steps in. He reluctantly tells the investigating panel that Albert panicked and lost control during the manoeuvre and caused the accident.
