Episode propaganda

Soon after a sensor scan of an 87 million-year-old comet commences, alien artefacts begin appearing around the Enterprise, as well as a mysterious compass-design symbol and sets of alien-looking icons that are grouped together in the same compass formation. The crew investigates, but the ship's computer is unable to identify the icons. Riker and Geordi realise that some kind of alien information has been downloaded into the ship's main computers from within the comet during the sensor scan. They decide to melt the outer shell of the comet to find out what its core contains. Before they do, however, Data realises that he somehow has the ability to interpret the unusual symbols.
