Storyline

While Picard is running out of excuses to decline Admiral Nakamura's invitation to a Starfleet flag officers banquet, Geordi's having difficulties with installing a new warp core. Dr. Soong's dream program gives Data his first nightmares; Troi advises against stopping it. She suggests therapy and a temporary interruption when the visions disturb his internal chronometer so he oversleeps, and spontaneously occur while on duty. However one element proves a real organism, so it's decided that Geordi and Picard use a device that allows them to enter Data's dreams and interact with him and other characters. Written by KGF Vissers

To sleep per chance to dream
26 March 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In another attempt to become more human Data has been given a dream program and he shuts himself off to experience sleep. Brent Spiner is usually the one on the ship who never needs save for some internal self maintenance.

Only a new warp drive has been installed and it is flawed with some parasitic microbes which are infecting the crew and if unchecked might reduce carbon based life to masses of jelly. Data is sensitive to them through those other byproducts of sleeping and dreaming, sleepwalking and nightmares.

It's the holodeck that provides the answers as Picard and LaForge accompany Data to a visit with Sigmund Freud.

This one was a bit way out, but had amusement value.
