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

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: The Hera is missing. That's all. Until I hear something different, my mother just might as well have taken the crew on an unscheduled holiday.

Geordi's family finally revealed.
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:155 - "Interface" (Stardate: 47215.5) - this is the 3rd episode of the 7th and last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In this episode, we get to finally see Geordi's often mentioned Starfleet parents who are serving on separate ships. When Picard assigns Geordi to use an experimental interface unit to rescue a science vessel that's trapped inside the atmosphere of a gas giant, Geordi learns that the starship Hera commanded by his mother, Silva La Forge (played by Madge Sinclair) has disappeared and is presumed that all is dead.

However, when he goes back into the science ship with his interface, he comes face to face with his mother, who is alive.

Also guest starring Ben Vereen as Geordi's father, Commander Edward M. LaForge, M.D.

Trivia note: the Excelsior is mentioned as one of the rescue ships. Madge Sinclair also played the Saratoga captain in Star Trek IV (the first female starship captain shown in Star Trek). We see Geordi get angry for one of the very few times in the series.
