Goofs

When Data tries to see into the frozen cryogenic chamber, it appears he uses the heat of body temperature to remove the frost to see the contents, which would not be possible unless the internal temperatures regulated by the thermal control system referred to in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Birthright, Part I extend to his extremities. However, it is entirely possible that (similar to using a scraper on a windscreen) simple pressure would remove the frost, and Data is quite capable of exerting sufficient pressure. See more »

Quotes

L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds: What's this 'Neutral Zone'?
Lt. Commander Data: It is a buffer between the Romulan Empire and the Federation.
L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds: Why does that make me nervous?
Lt. Commander Data: I do not know.
L. Q. 'Sonny' Clemonds: Well, we won't be invitin' these Romulans to our party, will we?
Lt. Commander Data: No, that would not be... appropriate.

Three people are woken up 370 years after they died. I don't think any of them acts like a normal human would. "Aliens are real?! We're in space?! That machine can make anything i want?!" Nope, none of that. Instead, one guy just wants his money, another wants booze and the lady is just weeping constantly.

The Romulans are extremely goofy looking with their monk-hair, but their ship looks amazing and they're at least more interesting than Klingons. The big mystery ends up not getting resolved, which is probably the main problem with this episode. It's somewhat entertaining but ultimately falls flat.
