Meh...., 19 November 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is another episode where the Enterprise is stuck in space and not a whole lot happens--no landing party to meet aliens or battles or anything that is that interesting. In a word, the show lacks ENERGY.

The ship finds some other ship where everyone but one is dead (a familiar theme) and this time it appears as if they killed each other. Soon, folks on the Enterprise star acting goofy-- paranoid, having difficulty thinking or giving orders. Because of this, Data is placed in charge. The reason, it turns out, is that people are not experiencing REM sleep and something out there is disrupting this needed deep sleep. Soon, they'll all go mad unless they stop this, because in addition the ship is stuck and cannot move.

So, the ship is stuck and everyone is slowly wasting away. Sounds exciting, no? NO! A pretty dull episode through and through will little to recommend it.
