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?
There was a containment field surrounding the rupture on cargo bay 4. However, when Riker takes Rager through it just before it's closing, they fall away to some distance of it, as if there isn't any field in place. See more
Captain Jean-Luc Picard
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.
