Plot Summary

Picard and the crew of the Enterprise are set to rendezvous with a Federation scientific vessel studying the collapse of a super red giant star into a white dwarf. As they near the ship however, they receive odd communications from the vessel, almost as if they are all drunk. When one of the crew blows an outer hatch, the crew is killed. An away team investigates but acquire a virus-like disease that makes them appear drunk and removes all inhibitions. As it spreads throughout the ship, Picard and Riker try to maintain discipline while Dr. Crusher tries to find a cure. Riker recalls a similar situation in the history of ships named Enterprise and that gives them a head start but not before an infected Wesley Crusher disables the engines just as the sun explodes leaving the ship in destruction's path.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Gene Roddenberry had hoped to recycle scripts from the original series with a bigger effects budget. Fan reaction to remakes (and a failure to achieve an early ratings peak) forced him to scrap plans to remake more episodes, at least as openly as in The Naked Now which was a remake of The Naked Time (1966).

Goofs When Picard and Crusher are talking in his ready room the camera zooms into their faces very close. They are standing just a few inches apart and Picard can be heard giggling. Not only is giggling inappropriate (Picard has not been infected) but his lips seem to move as if he were saying something. See more »

Quotes Lt. Tasha Yar: What I want now is gentleness. And joy... and love. From you, Data; you are fully functional, aren't you?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Of course, but...
Lt. Tasha Yar: How fully?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: In every way, of course. I am programed in multiple techniques. A broad variety of pleasuring.
Lt. Tasha Yar: Oh! You jewel, that's exactly what I hoped!
