Storyline

Picard and the crew of the Enterprise are set to rendezvous with a Federation scientific vessel studying the collapse of a super red giant star into a white dwarf. As they near the ship however, they receive odd communications from the vessel, almost as if they are all drunk. When one of the crew blows an outer hatch, the crew is killed. An away team investigates but acquire a virus-like disease that makes them appear drunk and removes all inhibitions. As it spreads throughout the ship, Picard and Riker try to maintain discipline while Dr. Crusher tries to find a cure. Riker recalls a similar situation in the history of ships named Enterprise and that gives them a head start but not before an infected Wesley Crusher disables the engines just as the sun explodes leaving the ship in destruction's path.

Goofs

At the moment Tasha Yar infects Deanna Troi by holding her hand, the scene shows 2 camera angles (1 from over each characters shoulder). From Tasha's perspective, we see the blue garment she was inspecting last is held between both characters right hands, but from Troi's perspective, the garment is clearly shown being held only by Tasha in her left hand.

Fun and entertaining!
25 April 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

When the majority of the crew are infected with a Psi2000 type virus they all start acting weird and/or jumping into bed with each other! I was a tad irked that such a young show was stealing ideas from it's predecessor at such an early stage but I'm glad to see how wrong I was to be worried! These guys were working well together and we are only on the second episode!! Patrick and Brent are brilliant in this when infected and are genuinely funny. The final solution to their impending jeopardy is a brilliantly conceived idea and gave Wesley a nod at such an early stage of the show. In a nutshell, a fun episode that escapes from all the usual tech babble and just has a little fun!
