    This episode is one of TNG's most sensational story lines in its enter series. Every show has an exceptional episode per season/entire series and this was it. The episode is about a long since dead civilization seen through the mind/eyes of Capt. Picard. A satellite constructed by this dead civilization connects with Capt. Picard and allows him to live the life of one of its inhabitants. He marries, has two kids, and eventually grandchildren. All throughout his 'stay', the Capt. tries to warn the populates about how the planet was endanger of being burned to a crisp by the sun and they couldn't survive forever like this. However, even his friend didn't believe him and, therefore, he was forced to work on the problem on his own. Throught his 'stay', he learned how to play a flute. In the end, Capt. Picard witnesses the launce of the satellite that zapped him and then he wakes up in the arms of Dr. Crusher. When the Enterprise disassembles the satellite, they find the flute--strange, isn't it--and the episode ends with Capt. Picard playing the flute and looking out into the vastness of space through his window. This is--or one of-- the episode(s) that defines TNG. This is an episode that i would never get bored of watching. Go TNG!!
