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
Is seen as a prelude to the Enterprise's encounter with the Borg, which is seen in the following season. See more »
When Data is trying to see into the frozen cryogenic chamber, it appears he uses the heat of body temperature to remove the frost to see the contents, which would not be possible unless the internal temperatures regulated by the thermal control system referred to in "Birthright" extend to his extremities.

I agree that this is low octane episode. Three people are beamed back to the Enterprise after being "frozen" based on the premise that if a cure is found, they can be revived. Over three hundred years later they are. The people are a young homemaker, a cutthroat businessman (according to one reviewer a leftist who makes capitalists look bad), and a good natured ne'er do well guitar-playing drunk who enjoys the heck out of his new digs. These people become real nuisances, getting in the way, and not understanding the gravity of things. Meanwhile, a serious confrontation with the Romulans is about to take place. This is serious, but certainly isn't shown that way. The confrontation and the three passenger theme are underdeveloped, but it certainly isn't worth a one rating. Quit letting your prejudices speak for you. These are reviews.
