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.

Trivia

When Troi heads to Engineering, she refers to Riker as "Bill." This is the first time in the series anyone has called the second-in-command by that particular variation of his first name. Troi later calls him by it again in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Haven (1987). See more »

Goofs

Yar uses the phrase, "Ship's stores will have it." With replicator technology there would be no need for storage. Any item needed could be replicated, from food to clothing to spare parts. No need to store clothing. You'd place dirty clothing in the replicator and turn it into new clothes. Recycling on the atomic level. See more »

Quotes

Woman on comm channel: Well, hello, Enterprise, welcome. I hope you have a lot of pretty boys on board. Because I'm willing, and waiting. In fact, we're going to have a real blowout here.

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!
