YATI : Data claims to have graduated in the "class of 78." Since it is now 2368, as dated from "The Neutral Zone" in which Data says it is 2364, did Data really graduate ninety years ago?

Riker claims that the Vulcan superintendant made being at the academy like "being with your parents". Riker's mother died when he was very young and his father was hardly ever around, so how would he know what being with your parents is like?

Great Moment : Picard's verbal beating of Wesley in the ready room.
Body Count : One cadet killed in the starburst.
Factoid : Robert Duncan McNeill, who plays Nicholas Locarno in this episode, went on to play Tom Paris in Voyager, both characters have a very similar background.
Quote : "The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth." - Picard to Wesley.
