"Star Trek: The Next Generation" The Naked Now (TV Episode 1987) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • 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.

  • Before the Enterprise reaches the scientific Federation ship studying a star about to turn supernova, they receive disturbed distress signals. Most crew died aboard from frost, some float in space as corpses, all due to crazy decisions they made. After Riker's away part returns, they start behaving oddly, as if drunk. By the time Dr. Crusher, who suspected intoxication, realizes it's infectious, various crew members including herself are contaminated. Riker gets Data to work out the syndrome resembles one Kirk's Enterprise encountered and developed a cure for. Wesley made a cool mini tractor beam as as school project, is infected and now misuse it to seal off the engine section, but still comes up with a solution when the ship risks being blown apart by the expanding star.
