Storyline

Geordi's visor experience makes him the ideal 'test pilot' for the Energy Interface, a virtual reality device which links to the wearer's nervous system. The user fully controls the end experience via a probe in his exact (save for eyes) image at a distance. While it's used in the inhospitable atmosphere of a planet where the spaceship Romane crashed, Starfleet reports that Geordi's mother captain Silva La Forge's ship, Hera, is missing. Geordi's probe meets someone there that is exactly like, and claiming to be, his mother, who insists on help for her crew. Despite trouble with the interface physically endangering his life at unsafe levels causing the tests to be suspended, Data helps him return to 'Silva' and find out the deceptive truth.

Goofs

Geordi uses an interface suit to manipulate a remote probe. In scenes from the probe's point-of-view, Geordi is depicted as if he were actually in the remote location, but his reflection is that of the probe. However, he casts a human shadow, not a probe-shaped shadow. See more »

Quotes

Commander William T. Riker: My mother died when I was a baby. All I have is pictures, and the stories that my father used to tell me about her. I begged him to tell those stories over and over. When I was five and I went to school, I started to tell my new friends those same stories, pretending that she was alive. Then I started believing that she was alive, that she'd just gone away, but that she was coming back. The teacher got wind of this, and she and my father had this talk with me. They told me, it was important to ...

Geordi proves once again that he gets along better with people when they aren't real.
2 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Geordi is trying out an interesting virtual reality device. While wearing a body suit, he's able to send a probe into dangerous places and see and interact as if he's there. So, if there is an engineering emergency, using the suit he can make repairs and see what the problem is. This naturally comes in handy when a Federation ship is in distress. Coincidence #2--the captain of this ship is Geordi's mother! When Geordi enters the ship with this virtual suit, he finds everyone dead-- but no every member of the crew is there. Geordi's mother, for one, isn't there. However, on a later expedition, he actually sees her--and she looks just fine despite everyone else being dead. How can this be? And, what is Geordi to do?

This is just an okay episode. It's neither very good nor bad...just another example of Geordi getting along much better with women who are not real! Kinda sad when you think about it this way.
