In this episode the future gets really gross. Sara finds even progressive utopian institutions rely heavily on the patriarchy, Kirby refers to the monsters of the episodes as “neck piglets”, Theo feels a sticky universe would be icky, and no one is shocked by the plot of an episode titled “Conspiracy”.Following a meeting with a fellow Captain, the strange behavior of high-ranking officers leads Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise to uncover a conspiracy of senior Starfleet officers possessed by parasitical aliens who are preparing to invade the United Federation of Planets.
