||Not brilliant, but a watchable episode nonetheless. It was effectively two parallel stories, but knitted together by a scene between Data and Worf. It worked OK, I suppose. Bringing in DS9, which was just getting going at the time, was obviously intended as a "handover". Now, I had always assumed that the Enterprise operated on the other side of the Federation, maybe I was wrong, but who knows? Still, Data's dream scene was interesting, since we got to see Dr Soong as a young man. The Worf side of the story was a bit slow, but that may pick up later. By the way, has DS9 grown or has the Enterprise shrunk?
