Storyline

Responding to an unidentified distress signal from the inhospitable planet Galondancor, deep in Federation space, a landing party finds a crashed Romulan vessel and brings in one badly wounded survivor, but Geordi LaForge, who fell in a deep crevice, failed to beam back up during a storm, and non-cranial brain injury to the Romulan suggests he too is in danger of magnetic radiation. Data intercepts a Romulan ship signal announcing it will pass the neutral zone in six hours; Picard forbids that but must promise to deliver the wounded, after recovering Geordi. Despite the Romulan's assurance, Geordi is surprised by an armed other Romulan survivor and is blinded by the radiation; they should collaborate to survive. Klingon Lt. Worf proves the only possible donor to save the captive, but objects to helping the species which killed his parents. The Romulan rescue ship's commander Tomalak being found a lier and most impatient, Picard fears a casus belli... Written by KGF Vissers

One of LeVar Burton's best performances....
16 February 2006 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

When LeVar Burton was cast in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in 1987, he brought a rock solid range of acting skills and a lot of heart to the show. As the series went on, he got to play a very solid engineer. However, within the technical dialogue and all the plots involving the ensemble cast his ability to show off his range seemed cut back sometimes.... at least in my opinion. But in this one the writers let him carry a show and act and he nailed it all. Watch for a solid performance from Mr. Burton here and a good job from a guest actor or two... or more.. and watch for another good twist from Michael Dorn, who actually got to give some input to the show... when the writers allowed him to decide what decision his character would make at a certain point. It proved quite influential on the progress of the episode. All the regulars are solid, the guest actors are spot on, and watch for Burton as he gets to go on a bit of a field trip from engineering.... Too bad for him, Risa this ain't!
