The Enterprise docks at Starbase 74 for 48 hours for what is supposed to be a computer upgrade. The upgrade is in the hands of the Binars, an advanced race whose minds work in binary code. For Picard and the crew it's an opportunity to relax and have a bit of R and R. Commander Riker is never quite sure what to do with himself on these layovers so he decides to spend some time on the holodeck in a New Orleans jazz bar. There he meets the beautiful Minuet and if it's possible to fall in love with a computer image, he practically does so. Picard soon joins them but the holodeck party is oblivious to what is happening on the ship. When the warp containment field begins to fail, Commader Data orders the evacuation of the ship and sends it off into the far reaches of space not realizing Riker and the Captain are still aboard.

Did You Know?


While this episode's title probably is a concatenation of the names of the four binars, binary is very cumbersome to work with and computer people use hexidecimal, base 16, to write it in a more manageable system. Thus, this title could have been expressed as C9. 1100 in hex is C and 1001 is 9. See more »


Lt. LaForge and Lt. Commander Data go to Engineering and find it empty. To which Lt. LaForge reports "There is no one on duty here." However, in the montage of "random crew" shots during Data's evacuation announcement, one shot shows a female crew member, with a visible reflection of the warp core seen on the glass in front of her, indicating that the producers simply reused shots from other episodes.

Binary success
10 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:16 - "11001001" (Stardate: 41365.9) - this is the 16th episode produced but the 15th one aired on TV. "11001001" is one of my more favorite episodes of season 1 (and of the whole series) - it really gets to the heart of Star Trek and introduces a species that is quite different from humans - that of the Bynars who always travel in pairs since they need two to decipher their binary code (when interacting with each other and other beings). I really liked the beginning when the Enterprise docked at a Starbase, entering it (and exiting later on in the episode) just like the original Enterprise entering Spacedock in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock - though it's obvious they took the matte paintings from that movie, it is a welcome homage to The Next Generation's past. See this episode, you won't be disappointed.

Trivia: Carolyn McCormick who plays Minuet will be back in the fourth season episode "Future Imperfect".
