The computer gives birth
24 September 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this TNG episode is one of the strangest ever done on the show. Still it has a certain appeal even if I don't quite get all the symbolism.

The Enteprise itself becomes sentient and the various parts of the ship take on life and character in one of the holodecks where a few of the crew's programs become all jumbled up. At the same time some strange object is being formed on one of the holodecks and it looks like it is some kind of new life form.

A whole lot just doesn't make sense in the end. I think the writers here decided to mess with our minds.
