YATI : Picard tries to escape the Enterprise after disabling Tuvo- er, a terrorist. He fails because the power goes out. Why not use a shuttle? The transporter on a shuttle? The Captain's yacht? An escape pod?

When the terrorists take over on the station base, one of them stuns Geordi and then points his weapon at Data, who freezes in place. But in "Power Play" when somebody fires a phaser stun at him and he is completely unaffected by it. So if Data is immune to stun settings, why doesn't he just charge the bad guy and knock him out?

Great Moment : Picard has such a wonderful time in this episode, it's hard to pick out any specific moment. My favourite is the way he cold-bloodedly lures his first victim into the baryon sweep to kill him - and to think there are those who claim Picard is too wimpy to use force.
Body Count : Six, I think.
Factoid : Strangely, the only people from the base at the reception for the E-D officers are Commander Hutchinson and two waiters! The originally planned extras were unavailable due to budget restraints.
Quote : Kelsey: "It's a small ship Mott, I don't think there's going to be room for both of us."
Picard: "I'm sorry to hear that. I'll send your regrets."

Plotline

The Enterprise-D is evacuated to undergo a high tech cleaning that will destroy all life on board. But Picard is trapped - and he is not alone.
