Moral :
Inner Strength : When disaster strikes you really find out what you're made of.
YATI : Geordi claims that opening the cargo bay doors will cause the drums of chemicals to be sucked out into space. Surely he means they will be blown out?

And while we're on the subject of Geordi, when Crusher leans against the wall and tells him that it's hot, he looks up and says "where?" But his VISOR can see infa red light, so he should have seen the heat trace on the wall long before they went anywhere near it.

When Picard cheers up the children during their climb by singing "Frere Jacques", why doesn't his Universal Translator convert it into English for us?

Great Moment : Worf having to deliver Keiko's baby.
Body Count : One killed on the bridge.
Factoid : The writers called this episode "Star Trek Meets the Poseidon Adventure", for obvious reasons.

The babies who played Molly O'Brien in this episode would return to the role in "Power Play".

The three children never get spoken surnames in the episode, but their names are clearly visible on the plaque they present to Captain Picard at the end - and each character's surname is identical to the actor's real name.


Plotline

A nervous Troi must assume command of a badly damaged Enterprise after it collides with a quantum filament.
