During a period of rest, and just after three elementary school science fair prize winners leave with Capt. Picard for a tour of the ship, the Enterprise hits a quantum filament, trapping its people in different compartments under varying emergencies. Geordi and Dr. Crusher face a plasma fire that begins to destabilize stored supplies into high-yield explosives; Data and Riker face a lethal electrical arc on their only available route to engineering; Worf presides over Keiko O'Brien going into labor; the wounded captain and the school children rally to escape a damaged and dangling turbolift; Troi, as highest in rank on the bridge, faces a crucial decision as the warp core heads toward collapse and ship-wide destruction.

One of the biggest plot points involves Troi's command decision on whether or not to separate the saucer section and risk leaving behind survivors. Ensign Ro states that they have no reason to believe there are any survivors on the other part of the ship. However Troi should be able to easily sense the emotions of any living people on the ship, making her the only person who *could* determine this. This is completely ignored. See more
