YATI : The whole premise of this episode makes no sense. Light and matter passes through Ro and Geordi so they are invisible and walk through walls... yet they can still see, still breathe the air and talk to one another, still stand on the floor and sit on a chair.
Great Moment : Ro, first coming to believe that she is dead.
Body Count : Unspecified numbers dead on the Romulan ship. At least one Romulan killed during the episode.
Factoid : The shuttle Goddard is named for rocket scientist Robert H. Goddard.
Quote : "But my uniform, my VISOR... are you saying I'm some blind ghost with clothes?" - Geordi commenting on Ro's assertion that they are dead.

Plotline

Geordi LaForge and Ro Laren are presumed dead during a mission to rescue a crippled Romulan ship. But they seem to be in some sort of spirit world - and they're not alone there.
