Riker is Kidnapped

Story: Gambit, Part I
Written By: Naren Shankar
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1993

Gambit is good fun. Is there a whole lot of story? No. Did it need to be two parts? Not really. But both parts have their moments, and had they been one episode, it would have been one strong and fun episode.
Basically we are told Picard is dead, while investigating, Riker gets kidnapped. They both end up posing as space pirates. Ridiculous, but fun.
