Storyline

Data finds an ancient space capsule from Earth, with three people who have been frozen for over 400 years. Meanwhile, Starfleet sends the Enterprise to the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone, where their starbases and personnel have disappeared after decades without contact between the Federation and the Romulans. Meanwhile, Dr. Crusher revives the three survivors who died of incurable diseases and were placed in cryonic freeze after their deaths in the hopes that cures might be found in the future. Upon their first encounter, Captain Picard also learns from the Romulans that their starbases and personnel have also disappeared. Written by Moviedude1

L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds: Let's see if the Braves are on, how do you cut on this teevee?
Commander William T. Riker: Teevee?
L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds: Yeah, the boob tube. Uh, I'd like to see how the Braves are doing after all this time. Probably still finding ways to lose.

The line of the show.
26 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite episodes from the series. Every time it was on, I ended up watching it again.

It was bugging me when I was watching an episode of Deadwood and I couldn't place the character Tom Nuttall from the show as L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds from TNG until I looked it up.

The line of the show was when he said to Data, "Why don't you come back later on and you and me will find us a couple low mileage "pit woofies" (sic?) and help em build a memory".

I was on the floor. He made the show.

Catch it if you haven't seen it.
