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
Did You Know?
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
