The story centres on Beverly Crusher, her struggle to come to terms with having to say goodby to Wesley and how that separation speaks to her abilities as a mother.
The story felt like a found script for an episode that was never shot. But, I guess, all these stories will feel that way, considering the length of them.
As in all good Star Trek this story works on more than one level. Sure there is the adventure of the mission, but from it there is character growth. This made the story satisfying.
