    With shades of "And the Children Shall Lead" from the original series (and if there's an episode that doesn't need to be repeated, it's that one) this kiddie episode is one of TNG's periodic reminders that the Enterprise D is a ship with children. The kids themselves aren't bad actors. (Actually, Noley Thornton is quite good as Clara.) But the episode makes the classic mistake of being more about guest stars we don't care about than the regulars we do. (That said, Troi is used well and has some good moments.) Thornton would return to the Star Trek universe to play another child in Deep Space Nine's "Shadowplay", which has a much better script than this forgettable offering.
