  • Trivia

    • Geordi has been given the first of a series of brain-disintegrating "probes" which stick out of his head. Upon being returned to the prison cell, Geordi is put on a table, clearly uncomfortable, when the alleged empath, Troi, asks, "Are you in pain?" She can sense emotions from Data, the android, but not the human Geordi? Prior episodes made it clear that "strong-willed" beings can't be read by Betazoids, but Geordi wears his emotions on his sleeve, so she shouldn't have had any such difficulties.
