"Truths and Consequences" -- by Louise Ellis. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction (or something like that). This story explores the hidden truths of a relationship, and the consequences Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher face when their relationship begins to be taken for granted with a little help from Julian Bashir and Deanna Troi.
"No Doubt" -- by Mary Lee Boyance. Sometimes we need someone to leave us without regret about our choices in life. Beverly Crusher finds that special someone in her memories ... and on the holodeck.
"Mosaic" -- by Rosemary Cullen. Fourteen years can make a drastic change in anyone's lives, and Jean-Luc and Beverly Picard are no exception. This post-Generations story finds Ambassador Picard, his wife and three children on Romii as the treaty Ambassador Spock has worked so hard for is about to be signed. But, at what personal cost to the Picards?

"Not Just Anybody" -- by Gail Molnar. A return to the "Realm of the Selkies" (Idylls 12). Beverly convinces Jean-Luc to go on vacation to visit the Fraser's. Together, they visit a fair, find a infant ruskoc, and find what makes a vacation special.
