Dr. Crusher is suspended and faces dismissal after taking the side of Ferengi scientist Dr. Reyga to persuade an inter-race research panel to allow a colleague to test his invention, the "metaphasic shield", during a shuttle flight into a star's extremely dangerous corona. After Dr. Crusher diagnoses him dead, although quite unfamiliar with his race's physiology, Reyga dies too, in an on-board test of his invention. After consulting Data on the technology involved, Crusher suspects Reyga was killed by sabotage; realizing several fellow panel members had both motive and opportunity, she tries to find out if the shuttle accident was also sabotage, and if so who committed it...

The term "autopsy" is used inappropriately here. A postmortem exam is only an autopsy when it is done by a member of the same species as the deceased. The term "necropsy" applies here. See more »

[Guinan enters]
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Guinan. What's wrong?
Guinan: I need a doctor. Geordi beat me in straight sets today; I think I've developed tennis elbow.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Well, you'd better go to sickbay. I think Dr. Selar is on duty.
Guinan: I don't wanna see Dr. Selar, I always see you. I'm very particular about my doctors.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Well, you'd better get a new one, because I'm not a doctor on this ship anymore.

Dr. Crusher is a very naughty girl...
30 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

-great make-up '

When the episode begins, Dr. Crusher has gotten into some sort of trouble, though you don't know exactly what it is. Soon, Guinan shows up and the pair begin talking--at which point the story slowly unfolds. It all began with a demonstration of a wonderful shielding system created by a Ferengi scientist. Only a small group of scientists bothered showing to see it and Dr. Crusher moderated this get together. However, when one member of the group dies and then another, Beverly disobeys orders in order to get to the bottom of it. Can she manage to both solve the problem AND get herself out of trouble?

This is a decent show because the story is rather unique and offers some nice twists. Additionally, I was very impressed by the make-up job done to create Dr. Jo'Bril--it was much better than the norm for the show. Well worth seeing.
