Storyline

Riker is gravely affected by a local's death on a covert mission on Telonus 4, where civil strife has created total mayhem and endangers Federation colonists. From then on, he has a frustrating series of conflicting sensations, unable to tell whether his mind is running wild aboard the Enterprise getting into a crazy character in a play, or undergoing reflexion therapy, a voluntary alternative to irreparable surgical synaptic reconstruction, in a Telosian mental ward...

This episode was just stupid
24 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I love the Star Trek universe and TNG quite a lot and while I like Riker's character for the most part this episode just seemed pointless and idiotic. He's seemingly abducted by some race, and manipulated on X amount of levels for seemingly some amount of information though we never really see what that is. the whole premise of this episode seems to be mystery without any resolve and for that I give no kudos.

Hell anyone can build a mystery from anything, but in this world to do it with some incidental race for some unknowable reason and to leave you hanging with really no resolution or no real conclusion whatsoever is just an utter let down.

What were they thinking... No points here
