Moral :
Fantasies : Well be honest, you would if you could...
YATI : Twice in this episode people walk in on Barclay playing in the holodeck, embarrasing him immensely. I don't know about you, but I would really, REALLY want to lock the door if I was on a holodeck. Yet there is no indication that anybody over rides a lock in order to get into the holodeck, they just walk in.
Great Moment : I absolutely love the bit where Troi, Riker and Geordi come across the 'Goddess of Empathy', most epsecially Geordi's stunned reaction.
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : The transporter test objects seen in this episode are actually casings for US Navy sonar bouys.
Quote : "The idea of fitting in just repels me." - Guinan to LaForge.
