STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION - Episode 37, "Contagion"
Picard (Patrick Stewart) receives a distress signal from the U.S.S. Yamato, which has been stranded in the Neutral Zone due to an inexplicable systems failure. As the Yamato's captain explains his mission - a search for the homeland of the legendary Ionian civilization - his ship explodes into nothingness. A Romulan vessel soon materializes and threatens attack unless the Enterprise leaves the Neutral Zone.
Suddenly, both ships are rendered powerless, crippled by the same mysterious computer failures that struck the Yamato. Unless one of the crews can locate the electronic virus, both vessels are doomed to self-destruct.
Costarring Diana Muldaur as Dr. Katherine Pulaski.
