  • Apparently, "The Next Phase" and "Cause and Effect" mated and had this child.

    This mystery episode featuring Picard, Data, Troi, and Geordi has a killer story idea that would seem more likely to appear in the Star Trek Animated Series. (And actually, the opening is reminiscent of "The Slaver Weapon" from that Trek incarnation.) Of course, it is more dramatic to see the events unfold in live action, and writer Brannon Braga, unwilling to coast on a sure-fire ratings hit of a premise, beautifully develops the mystery scene by scene before delivering a satisfying climax that ties it all together. Director Adam Nimoy deserves special praise for his choice of camera work on board the ships, keeping the shots of frozen crew members alive (and helping out the actors) by keeping the camera moving. (His father would probably conclude that this was the logical choice.)
