Storyline

Although Riker considers maverick federation scientist Kosinski's project to vastly boast the propulsion absurd, Picard obeys the admiralty orders. Fascinated, Wesley sits with his alien assistant and wins his confidence. the results surpass eve Kosinski's wildest dreams, jumping into a galaxy far beyond the explored part of the universe. Deciding against immediate study, Picard orders Kosinski to get them back. Only Wesley noticed that his assistant, who 'faded' supernaturally, is the real key. The next jump brings to where the crew's deepest hopes and fears come true. The alien assistant is ailing and reveals his 'traveller' identity. Wesley's astuteness is noted and fittingly rewarded with an academy cadet future. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

At times, the illusions of a person's thoughts can easily be seen by others nearby (example: when Worf sees his pet Targ on the bridge, Tasha sees it as well), but at other times, it appears that the illusions can only be seen by the thinkers themselves, and others cannot see what they see (example: when Picard sees his mother in the middle of the corridor, Riker does not see her). However, since that entire place is beyond human understanding, it's no use applying our logic to it - apparently the interaction between thought and reality is much more complicated than simple materialization of thoughts.

Next Gen Finds It's Footing
17 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a personal highlight from a season with little to have a song and dance about. The Enterprise is thrown many lightyears from home by a mistake made by two guests called Kosinski and the Traveller. Interestingly, the actor who plays the Traveller was in the running to play Data. It's a superb episode which shows the strength of the main cast as well as displaying some great guest performances from the wonderfully arrogant Kosinski and the mysterious Traveller. There are also some rather splendid graphics here and there. However, the corniness of this first season as a whole shines through when Picard is forced to encourage his crew to "believe" their way out of it, but it is a forgivable little cringe.
