The Hive: one of the very first ST:NG fanzines, published in November 1987, and presented to Jonathan Frakes at his first convention appearance, here in California. An almost identical episode appeared in the Spring. It had of course already been filmed when The Hive was published, so these two versions were conceived independently of each other: welcome to the Twilight Zone!
In this novella, Riker, Data, and Worf are trapped on a dangerous planet ruled by beautiful women. On the Enterprise, Captain Jean-Luc Picard faces a mysterious, deadly illness that strikes down every woman on board, including Dr. Beverly Crusher.
