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

When Pichard and Crusher are talking in his ready room the camera zooms into their faces very close. They are standing just a few inches apart and Pichard can be heard giggling. Not only is giggling inappropriate (Pichard has not been infected) but his lips seem to move as if he were saying something. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Beverly Crusher: If you were any more perfect, Data, I'd have to write you up in a Starfleet medical textbook.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: I am already listed in several bio-mechanical texts, Doctor.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Yes - of course...

a brilliant intro
2 February 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When the crew of the Starship Enterprise find a ship adrift in space, they need to find out not only what killed the crew, but what appears to be affecting their own crew as well....

This episode was actually the first one filmed, and it's certainly a rather intimate one to begin with! Probably why the cast became so tight knit over the 7 year run.

There's humour abounding and several scenes now considered "classic". It was the first ever episode I watched of Star Trek (I never saw Original as a kid) and what an introduction! It led to a love of both the series and Data in particular.

Definitely one not to miss!
