Storyline

The Enterprise is transporting to the neutral planet Parliament peace delegates from two races which can't stand each other long enough to occupy neighboring suites, yet both want to join the Federation. Traveling trough a mysterious energy cloud, some gets aboard and keeps jumping from crew members to machinery and vice versa, as if seeking a suitable host and learning about the ship, without revealing itself. The crew catches on slowly, as nobody seems seriously affected, except Wesley's engineering mentor Singh, who is killed in a warp technology accident, but 'host' the highly intelligent entity. Written by KGF Vissers

all started with Mr. Singh
9 November 2009 | by ozgur-demirhanSee all my reviews

The magnificent death of Mr. Singh... He gets shocked from the warp station at engineering and flies like a butterfly just close to the warp core and while facing downwards, spotted by Worf and declared dead.

I hope I'm not wrong, but this is the very first time we see on a TNG episode the rule "Appeared too much, lived too much".

I mean when an "appearance with a dialogue" playing actor that we see for the first time and doesn't have a relation with the story of that episode, eventually dies before the end of that episode :)

...and the last scene with the delegate BBQ is probably the funniest cultural conflict i have ever heard of.
