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

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