She ordered the kidnapping of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Doctor Beverly Crusher because she suspected them of conspiring with the Kes, the enemy of the Prytt. Picard and Crusher were fitted with Psi-wave devices that the Prytt used to secure information. When the two escaped, Lorin sent security forces to kill them and threatened to attack the USS Enterprise-D.
Confronted by the ship's firepower, which was superior to Prytt capabilities, and informed by Commander William T. Riker that further defiance would result in an increased Federation presence on the planet until Picard and Crusher were rediscovered, Lorin acquiesced, and Picard and Crusher were returned to the Enterprise-D unharmed.
