  • FDR would be proud of this episode

    This Barclay episode develops its phobia story nicely, but nearly flounders in the second half due to the weak visual effects and the weak sci fi premise driving the plot. Like previous Barclay episodes, however, Marina Sirtis (Troi) is given some meaty material to work with, and she takes advantage of the situation, brilliantly playing her part. (The Barclay character seems to open a door to better writing for Troi for whatever reason. And Dwight Schultz and Sirtis have excellent chemistry together.) Beyond these two characters and the unique transporter POV shots, though, this is a forgettable episode.
