While Picard's is running out of excuses to decline Admiral Nakamura's invitation to a Starfleet flag officers banquet, Geordi's having difficulties with installing a new warp core. Dr. Soong's dream program gives Data his first nightmares; Troi advises against stopping it. She suggests therapy and a temporary interruption when the visions disturb his internal chronometer so he oversleeps, and spontaneously occur while on duty. However one element proves a real organism, so it's decided that Geordi and Picard use a device that allows them to enter Data's dreams and interact with him and other characters. Written by
