  • After a boys mother dies during a mission an alien pretending to be his mother comes to the Enterprise, and wants to help him by taking him to the planet and live there.

    When I decided to see this episode today I wasn't sure how it would turn out, i had read a review and didn't know excactly what to expect.
    This episode features a nice story about a boy who's mother died during a mission. I could have done without the Worf interferance but you won't hear me complaining.
    If you only like action episodes I don't encourage you to go and wach this episode but if you go for story and a little drama I think you will enjoy yourself for the 44 minutes.
    Suficive to say there are much better TnG episodes but you won't bore yourself with this one.
