YATI : This episode catches Geordi out disobeying orders and lying to a senior officer. When the Enterprise gets crippled by Tin Man, Riker orders Geordi to give the shields top priority. A little later we see LaForge busy fixing the sensors, after which he reports back to Riker that the shields are still down and he is doing everything he can to fix them.
Great Moment : Tin man's ripple weapon - a reuse of the special effects from the motion picture for V'Ger merging with Decker and heading off to higher dimensions, incidentally.
Body Count : The entire crew of a Romulan Warbird.
Factoid : The sounds heard inside Tin Man are actually the slowed down noises of pizza digesting inside a Human stomach, recorded through a stethoscope.
Quote : "Is that the purpose of existence? To care for someone?" - Data to Elbrun.

Plotline

The Enterprise must race the romulans to get to a mysterious living ship called Tin Man. But their success depends on a former mental patient.
