  • Brannon Braga is back, this time taking FOUR crew members into the depths of his own neurosis

    8.0
    This "X Files" like alien abduction story (a Riker episode) is one of Star Trek's more effective mystery thrillers, slowly building up the tension before paying it off nicely. The episode has its dull points early, and the guest stars are as boring as wallpaper, but there's a can't miss scene that's beautifully laid out (one of the creepiest in the history of Trek), and a thrilling climax. Unlike previous TNG episodes about alien abductions (such as Samaritan Snare, Allegiance, and Darmok), this one is unique in that it's not about the aliens at all, but rather about the mindgames and weirdness our beloved Enterprise crewmembers experience throughout the course of the hour.
