When Deanna steps down the ladder from the catwalk during her vision about Utopia Planitia, a panel with selenium cells can be seen in the foreground. During the investigation in the nacelle tube, she indicates one of those panels saying that she doesn't remember seeing them in her vision, and Data confirms that they have not been installed until two years ago. While it is possible that Deanna may well have overlooked that panel in her vision, Data's statement is clearly in contradiction to the images from eight years earlier. And it is unlikely that Data would have been in error about the time of installment. See more »


[Data is talking about his first months of activation, when he was at risk of systems failure]
Lt. Commander Data: I came to the conclusion, it would be safer - and easier - to shut myself down and start again.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah, but if you had done that you wouldn't have remembered any of the things that had happened to you.
Lt. Commander Data: Mm. In a way, it would have been like committing suicide.

Sub-par episode with badly presented ending
17 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the poorer episodes from the 7th season. The plots revolves around telepathic abilities, one of my least favorite aspects of the Star Trek universe. I like my science fiction at least somewhat grounded in science rather than pseudo-science. I grudgingly accept Troi's abilities when presented as extremely sharp intuition but when presented more like a true psychic ability I can't help but be skeptical. The plot is something of a who-done-it. I don't want to discuss the details because they aren't very interesting. But I can say that the ending is poorly scripted. The first time I saw the episode I didn't even fully understand how much of the episode the "reveal" covered... almost the whole thing.
