Episode cast overview:


Docking at star-base 1-3-3 for crew rotation, Doctor Beverly Crusher was happy to rejoin her old, widowed mentor Doctor Dalen Quaice, but computer reports he's not aboard at all, nor has he any Starfleet service record anymore. After four of her medical staff member disappear similarly, Wesley thinks up an experimental warp bubble-effect theory, but Data points out she has no staff and is wrong about the staff size by over 800. Next she barely escapes a vortex, but no sensor recording or anomaly concurs with its existence; Deanna refuses to answer if she's going mad. When Wesley tells her the only one who must know more about warp bubbles is a strange alien, the Traveler, who combined it with mind power to create an alternate reality, Beverly believes somehow that technique must have been recreated during the experiment...

At one point, Dr. Crusher uses a workstation on the bridge to view the warp bubble with Enterprise superimposed on it. She watches the bubble shrink until it comes perilously close to the main bridge. The next shot shows her worried expression. But when the scene cuts back to the graphic, the bubble has widened again. See more »

Wesley is, once again, a bit of a jerk in this one...
18 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Ensign Crusher was a character you either loved or you hated--and pretty much everyone I know hated him. "Remember Me" and "Evolution" are two great examples WHY some disliked him so much. In both, Wesley was carrying out experiments apart from his usual duties and in both he nearly killed folks! In "Evolution", his escaped nano-bots nearly took out the entire ship and destroyed the life's work of a scientist. Here in "Remember Me", he nearly kills his mother. Gosh...what a little jerk!

The episode begins with Dr. Crusher meeting with an old colleague who just beamed aboard the ship. However, oddly, he soon vanishes and the ship's computer says he is NOT on the ship! Of course she tells the Captain and no one can identify that he was ever there in the first place...and folks start questioning the Doctor's sanity. Soon, however, large number of the ship's crew vanish--going from a thousand to only a few hundred to only a handful and so on...yet, inexplicably, only Dr. Crusher notices. Otherwise, those left act as if this is the normal ship's compliment. What's happening? And, how is Wesley behind it?!

This is a SUPER-cerebral sort of episode. They never leave the ship, there are no cool aliens and the story itself is confusing and not particularly enjoyable. Not bad---just not very good, either.
