The Enterprise is transporting to the neutral planet parliament peace delegates from two races which can't stand each other long enough to occupy neighboring suites, yet both want to join the Federation. Traveling trough a mysterious energy cloud, some gets aboard and keeps jumping from crew members to machinery and vice versa, as if seeking a suitable host and learning about the ship, without revealing itself. The crew catches on slowly, as nobody seems seriously affected, except Wesley's engineering mentor Singh, who is killed in a warp technology accident, but 'host' the highly intelligent entity.

Hey, You, Get Offa My Cloud!
26 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Picard and the crew are overseeing the negotiations between to embittered rivals. There seems little chance that anything is going to get done. During this time a cloud is entered which alters the resolve of many significant crew members. Each of the principles seems to have a go at a new existence, acting strangely or putting forth dangerous actions and ideas. Somehow this cloud is responsible for this alteration. It is fortunate that there are those on the crew that are able to interpret things properly. Commander Data must act because for all his good intentions, Picard fall victim to the forces of the cloud. This type of dangerous entity is ongoing in many episodes. Also, it is up to someone other than Picard to come forth and deal with the issues. This is seldom done in these efforts. Good episode but somewhat derivative.
