Storyline

Wondering why an experiment at stellar cartography has most of the ship's resources reserved for hours, Picard goes see the stellar sciences section's obnoxiously assertive new head, Lieutenant Commander Nella Daren. Spending some time together they find they share several interests and enjoy playing music together. The relationship gets tested by balancing his authority and her tendency to sort of abuse his feelings for her. Then she suggests a way to help colonists about to suffer a severe stellar storm, and joins one of the rescue teams, which is badly hit... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

We see the Stellar Cartography lab for the first time, but it looks a lot less elaborate than in would in Star Trek: Generations (1994), with no 3D mapping or wall height star charts. The film's bigger budget must have allowed them to dress it up for the big screen. See more »

Goofs

Some obvious matte work to simulate a long access tunnel when Picard and Darren play music in the Jeffries tube. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Cmdr. Nella Daren: Earl Grey? No wonder you can't sleep.

Delicate Episode
29 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Patrick Stewart is a great actor in any sense of the word. Here, his Jean-Luc Picard is smitten with an attractive woman who is multi-talented, both in her vocation and her avocation. She is a masterful musician, a pianist of great skill. One of Picard's few opportunities for artistic fulfillment, comes from a flute he was given in the episode where he lives an entire lifetime on a doomed planet. He plays along with computer generated music all by himself. He is immediately attracted to this woman and the loneliness of his position becomes a force with which he must deal. He is her superior on the Enterprise and there are understandings. Just because her role is research doesn't mean she may be required to perform a dangerous mission given the right circumstances. This episode is so beautifully done, with so much hurt and heart, that it really grabs us. Eventually, of course, those decisions are going to be made, and the role of Captain must be recognized. It's sad and poignant.
