  • The Enterprise crew begins seeing and hearing things while Troi has nightmares.

    After finding the USS Brattain, and her dead crew, the Enterprise crew begins experiencing strange things aboard their own ship. Troi is having nightmares. The key lies with a single survivor from the Brattain.

    This episode was one of the best of the fourth season (not counting the conclusion of the Best of Both Worlds). Many of the strange goings-on aboard the Enterprise were unnerving, with the morgue scene being downright creepy.

    The only annoying part of this episode was the recurring nightmare that Troi was having. The frequency with which we saw that dream was a bit much, considering that little changed in the whispers that were heard from the aliens.

    Overall, very good job.
