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

Mimicking an android.
26 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:111 - "Hero Worship" (Stardate: 45397.3) - this is the 11th episode of the 5th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

When an Away Team including Data discovers a young boy named Timothy trapped in the wreckage of a research vessel that was reported missing in the Black Cluster, the boy is rescued by Data using his strength. Soon Timothy is intrigued by Data's unemotional state and starts dealing with the loss of his parents by mimicking him, a "hero worship".

At the same time, the Enterprise is bombarded by powerful shock waves from the Cluster. With the danger rising, only Timothy knows what happened and has the answer to save them. Can Data get Timothy to tell him?

Trivia note: Geordi recalls when he was 5 he was in a fire, he was fine because he was eventually rescued by his parents, though there was trauma like Timothy is going through. We see the Entperise school again. And, we see Data painting again.
