Episode cast overview:
Michael Keenan ...
Ned Quint


The Enterprise visit a colony which recreates the Scottish Highlands, where Dr. Beverly Crusher's very old grandmother is buried. Captain Picard accepts governor Maturin's invitation to stay and help repair the storm-damaged power supply. Her best friend, Ned Quint, warns against an heirloom and the ghost of her lover Ronin in general, about whom granny's diary is extraordinarily explicit. Beverly spends sometime in the house she inherits, and has an incredibly intense experience of dream-contact with the lover. Gradually she learns more about her 'inherited' virtual lover. Thus Ned's warning starts to make sense, but only after he got himself killed trying to sabotage the Enterprise power. Written by KGF Vissers

After the funeral at the beginning, Dr. Crusher asks Deanna to come with her to her Nana's house, and they both leave the cemetery together. In the next scene, when Picard is talking to Governor Maturin and they arrive at the fence, Deanna can be seen in the background roaming the cemetery on her own. Yet in the following scene again, she arrives with Dr. Crusher at the house. See more »

Alexander, Lwaxana, and Jar Jar walk into a bar...
20 September 2011 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

Fans of classic V will enjoy Duncan Regehr, as long as they don't mind doing so with jaws agape in disbelief. If you know someone who loves NEXT GEN but hasn't seen this one, i guarantee they will absolutely not believe that it isn't some practical joke created by a fan with too much time on his hands last Thursday. The only way for it to have been any bizarrer would have been for Beverly to get on a motorbike, jump a tank of naked Evel Knievels, and land in a threesome with Pinky and Leather Tuscadero. Note the "McFly" on the Scottish tombstone. I swear to you, if Ellen Dow (THE WEDDING SINGER) had started rapping from within her coffin, it would have fit right in.
