01x05 The Last Outpost
Stardate 41386.4 The Enterprise and the Federation’s first meeting with the relatively unknown Ferengi race occurs near a strange unknown planet. Both the Enterprise and the Ferengi ship become trapped by forces eminating from the planet. Both the ships lose power and each thinks the other responsible. When Picard realises this is not so he persuades the Ferengi that they will each send away teams to the planet together in hopes of finding a way to destroy the source of the power that has left their ships trapped in orbit. But can the unknown Ferengi be trusted?
