Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Quotes

Capt. Picard: How long before we have warp power again?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Well, we're gonna have to manufacture a new conduit, that's at least six hours work.
Capt. Picard: [with feigned disappointment] Six hours? The banquet will be completely over by then; that's very unfortunate.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I could try and speed things up a bit.
Capt. Picard: Oh, no! No, uh... I wouldn't want to sacrifice the safety of the ship.

Salvador Data
8 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most surreal of all the episodes. Data has logged into his dream self and finds himself wandering the Enterprise. He encounters a group of workmen in dungarees tearing a hole in a wall. When he confronts them, he loses his voice and they attack him, ripping his head off and tearing off an arm and a leg. He awakens and faces his crew members. As things develop he has another dream. In this one, he sees Deanna turned into a cake. As she begs him not to cut into the cake he does anyway. The other plot occurring is the enterprise having problems with its warp drive and impulse engines. Time reveals that some sort of foreign entity has attached itself to several crew members and the fact is that if something is not done, they will die from loss of vital body substances, left as a pool of elements. I have never understood the holodeck. Data has a session with Sigmund Freud. Since this is a computer creation of Freud, of what assistance would it be. I suppose the vast computer banks were used to create the essence of Freud. Anyway, this proves to be a bizarre episode but well worth the time.
