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.

Trivia

The initial idea had Riker in the virtual-reality suit, troubled by the death of his father, and seeing scenes of the Alaska cabin where he grew up. This was changed because Riker had gone through several similar mind trips and existential crises in the 6th season, and also the logic of using Geordi's VISOR implants. See more »

Goofs

Data changed his stance from "Nearly impossible, sir" to "There is a high degree of probability that you are correct" in just two scenes. See more »

Kind of an Empty Episode
7 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think of all the characters aboard the Enterprise, the least interesting, to me, is Geordi LaForge. There doesn't seem to be a depth to his character. He is a repository of technological knowledge. He frequently pulls stuff out of the blue that is so advanced it bears a bit of skepticism. That doesn't mean I dislike him but he isn't very interesting. They play on his inability to form relationships, but he never gets out of his head. He is dull. This episode, which involves the death of his mother, has him going off half cocked and not recognizing clues that his experiences should have taught him. When his mother shows up, he should have had some suspicions about who she was. He ignore the advice of the crew. Granted he has lost his mother, but her appearance is in the oddest circumstance. I just couldn't get into this one.
