Storyline

Picard and the Enterprise are urgently called back to Earth to see the results of an archaeological dig that reveals aliens may have visited the planet in the 19th century. Among the many relics they have found is one that is totally out of place - Commander Data's head. Data confirms that it is his own head and not that of his brother Lore. He seems completely at ease with the find, which is not the case with the rest of the crew. On the planet, Data encounters a temporal vortex and he suddenly finds himself transported to 19th century San Francisco where he meets none other than Guinan. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Jack London is working as a bellboy at the Hotel Brian in San Francisco and a newspaper that Data has picked up reveals the present date as Sunday, August 13, 1893. During that year London sailed to Japan and when he returned there was much labor unrest and a financial panic gripped the San Francisco - Oakland area. See more »

Quotes

Jack London: Isn't that what makes America great?
Lt. Commander Data: To what are you referring?
Jack London: Well, a man rides into town in his pajamas, wins a grub stake at a poker table, turns it into a horseless carriage and makes a million bucks. That's America!
Lt. Commander Data: I believe I have given you an erroneous impression.

It's All in Data's Head
6 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Away team goes to a cave that had not been investigated for 500 years. In it they find a broken watch, a few other artifacts, and, most amazing of all, a tarnished and broken metallic head, that of Commander Data. Apparently, this head has been there all this time and is evidence of some intergalactic invasiveness into this century. Since Data is now alive, something must be done. In a delightful first half, Data finds himself in San Francisco around the turn of the century. He is so out of place, but it is San Francisco. He needs money and gets into a poker game. He rents a room and begins to build a device to go after a couple of time traveling cannibals. Along the way he runs in to Samuel Clemens and a young Jack London. He awaits the arrival of the rest of the crew to assist his efforts. Of course, there are numerous complications, among these the constant meddling of Clemens who believes there are aliens and they are up to no good.
