The Enterprise visit a colony which recreates the Scottish Highlands, where Dr. Beverly Crusher's very old grandmother is buried. Captain Picard accepts governor Maturin's invitation to stay and help repair the storm-damaged power supply. Her best friend, Ned Quint, warns against an heirloom and the ghost of her lover Ronin in general, about whom granny's diary is extraordinarily explicit. Beverly spends sometime in the house she inherits, and has an incredibly intense experience of dream-contact with the lover. Gradually she learns more about her 'inherited' virtual lover. Thus Ned's warning starts to make sense, but only after he got himself killed trying to sabotage the Enterprise power.

Deanna and Dr. Crusher are inside "Nana's" house after the funeral service. Deanna tells Dr. Crusher that she will "head back to the ship." Then Deanna exits the house through the front door. Why? Can't she just tap her comm badge and have the Enterprise transport her from inside the house? Is there an unspoken transporter etiquette which doesn't allow a person to "beam directly in or out" of a person's house? See more

You have been using me, Nana, my entire family for centuries!
And I loved all of them! And they loved me!
