Commander Riker has not been sleeping well but Dr. Crusher can't find anything wrong with him. He is constantly exhausted and has images of object in his mind that he can't quite place. He is not the only one with a sense of deja vu and with others, manages to piece together what has been happening. It would seem they are being taken from the ship during their sleeping hours by a race conducting experiments on them. Who they are and what they hope to achieve is unknown but everyone agrees it must be related to the inter-dimensional hole in space that is somehow being created in one of the cargo bays. Written by
Did You Know?
The clock on Cmdr. Riker's wall gives the stardate as 46154.4 and the time as 10:37:41. The ".4" at the end of the stardate, is a decimal (base 10) reflection of how far through the current day it is, with each 0.1 representing one tenth of the day (2 hours and 24 minutes). Without the actual time given, the stardate alone narrows the time to between 09:36 to 11:59. See more
Georgi puts the sensor relay emitter on the inside of Riker's arm at the crook of the elbow. When seen again in Riker's quarters, it is still on the inside of his arm, but closer to his wrist. After Riker is taken to the alien vessel. the emitter is on the outside of his forearm. See more

Have we any idea what came through the rupture before we were able to shut it down?
Lt. Cmdr. Data
No, sir. We were unable to track it once it left the cargo bay.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge
Maybe it was a probe of some kind.
Lt. Cmdr. Data
Possibly they were simply curious, explorers, like ourselves.
Commander William T. Riker
Ensign Rager and I were lucky to have escaped. Lieutenant Hagler is dead. Whoever it was that sent that thing was more than simply curious.
