Summary[]

You can't always risk the life of the Captain of the Enterprise. That was the thought that inspired the "contact team" when playing the concept for Star Trek: The Next Generation. What was envisioned as a kind of SWAT for Starfleet didn't materialize then, but they may have had a life by the time Enterprise took flight. Thomas Marrone joins The Trek Files again to discuss an early TNG development document.
