Storyline

Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge eagerly follows orders to enjoy traveling ahead of the ship by shuttle craft to a technology conference on the planet Risa, till an unexpected Romulan war vessel beams him aboard to be brainwashed with fake holiday memories before returning to the Enterprise with a mission including sabotage and the murder of Chief Miles O'Brien with a spy and mental control e-band device fitted into his visor. Meanwhile the Enterprise is hosting Klingon special ambassador Kell, who doesn't enjoy his mission from the High Council to Kreos, a planet on the border with Federation space territory, which seeks independence at a time the Klingon Empire needs its resources elsewhere and therefore prefers to settle, and investigate if they get any illegal Federation help. The Klingon Governor Vagh claims the rebels got Federation issue weapons, but Data and Geordi find it's a replica, probably Romulan solely to estrange the Klingons from their enemy, the Federation.

Goofs

The computer tells Geordi that Risa is "climate controlled for optimum tourist comfort." As Risa hosts multiple species this would be impossible. For example, Vulcans would consider the comfort zone for humans to be quite cold, while Andorians would find it too hot. See more »

La Forge's love life isn't bad enough, now he has to be an unwitting pawn?
31 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first half of 'The Mind's Eye' is staged as a political thriller, pleasantly evoking the great ones of the '70s. And even though we've seen this kind of thing plenty often in the past, there's a very nice plot twist buried deeply within this story that's really spices things up. Which is another reason this is a solid episode; it dovetails the stock assassin angle with the ongoing Klingon Empire arc.

But at some point, the mystery heats up, and things really get going The last ten minutes or so are actually pretty tense, with dark implications for a particular conspirator. And in the end, there's Geordi, left to pick up the pieces of his shattered memory. It's a haunting finish.

8/10
