The Next Generation: Hearts and Minds

Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise encounter an alien world with a dark link to Earth's past. When the captain and his away team are arrested for crimes supposedly committed by a sinister agency in the 21st century, it's up to them to discover the truth about what happened. Did travellers from Earth cause millions of deaths on a planet hundreds of light-years away?
