The Enterprise is looking into the disappearance of another ship, the Huxley which brings them to the planet Rampart. The planet Rampart is dedicated to preventing the spread of AllPox, which is a disease of "myth, fiction, imagination, blasphemy, and religious heresy." Their definition of "fiction" is rather twisted and denies that humans are the only species in the universe (even though there are clearly aliens on the Enterprise).

Unfortunately, the crew does not know about the dangers of the envoys from Rampart and lets them aboard. They kidnap Captain Picard and beam back to the planet, leaving behind several "one-eyes" which are drones that read thoughts and kill several members of the crew. Meanwhile, Riker, Data and Troi beam down to the planet. Riker and Data are captured but Troi gets away and finds herself among the "dissenters" who are people who rebel against the regulations against fiction and imagination.

This novel is not bad. There are lots of allusions to different works.
