    It's always dangerous for a series this far into its life to bring in a new long lost relative, because the natural reaction from viewers is "oh, come on!" However, this Data episode does it with care, and the new back-story fits in well with Data's established history and even unknowingly sets up a new character for TNG's last feature film.

    That said, the character-based story plods along somewhat slowly and is not helped by the generic sci fi problem in the background. The writers clearly figure that Brent Spiner and guest star Fionnula Flanagan are strong enough actors to sustain interest with just conversation and the two give it their best effort; but the episode lacks excitement until a twist is added late in the game.
