Storyline

A Starfleet ship has a disaster in the largest black cloud ever observed, an astronomical phenomenon which gravely distorts gravity itself. Data is able to rescue a single survivor, the young boy Timothy, who lost both his parents on the starship and suppresses the unspeakable trauma, yet may have invaluable information about what happened and how the Enterprise is best to handle the black cloud itself. Troi encourages savior Data to spend time with Timothy, who decides to 'become' an android, physically and mentally superior to humans, like his mentor. When the Enterprise reaches the black cloud, the bridge officers prove unable to handle it in any known way like the other ship, Data and Timothy must make the difference... Written by KGF Vissers

Data daddy.
22 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is some sort of huge black cloud in space (and I HATE episodes involving clouds as they are a DULL enemy indeed). Somehow a Federation ship was destroyed in it and they find a lone survivor--a child named Timothy. However, the kid is naturally traumatized and the kid cannot talk about what happened in order to help them understand what happened. In fact, the boy has adopted an interesting coping mechanism--he's decided to be an android like Data, as Data does not experience pain. So, to avoid the pain of his parents' death, the boy lives in denial and spends a lot of time with Data. Can they eventually learn what destroyed the ship so that the Enterprise, too, doesn't suffer the same fate?

It's kind of cute seeing the boy interacting with Data--and Data acting like a surrogate dad. But, the whole cloud thing is pretty dull and the overall episode is middle of the road at best.
