Helping Etria to deal with its volcanic core, cooling it down by phaser-beam, the Enterprise hosts its top geology doctors Pran Tainer and Juliana Tainer. She claims to have assisted Dr. Noonien Soong, as his secret wife, creating Data and his 'childhood' after which his memory was wiped. He has difficulties verifying her story and dealing with her 'maternal' emotions, actually not just for him, until an accident reveals her physiological secret -which he guessed already- and is faced with his designing dad's wishes.
