Title: Captain’s Holiday
Season: 3
Episode: 19

Two aliens, a male and a female, beam to a resort on the surface of Risa. The female queries the resort’s computer about the location of Jean-Luc Picard’s room, only to be informed that he hasn’t arrived yet. When asked when he will arrive the computer states it has no reservation on file under that name. While the male wonders about the situation, the female states: “He will come”.
The USS Enterprise-D is returning from a two week mission on Jemaris 5 where Picard mediated a commercial treaty between two very stubborn participants. Counselor Troi tells Commander Riker how difficult it was to come up with the agreement. Picard arrives on the bridge, orders the ship to Starbase 12, and then goes to his ready room. Picard doesn’t show any joy when Riker congratulates him, so Troi suggests to Riker that what the captain really needs is a vacation. via

“Your Honor, a courtroom is a crucible; in it we burn away irrelevancies until we are left with a pure product: the truth, for all time.”
– Jean-Luc Picard

“It’s been ten years, but seeing you again like this makes it seem like fifty. If we weren’t around all these people, do you know what I would like to do?”
“Bust a chair across my teeth.”
“After that.”
“Oh, ain’t love wonderful.”

– Jean-Luc Picard and Phillpa Louvois
