YATI : Near the end of the episode, Data claims that the evidence supports the idea that it is gravity that is pulling the ship and the 2-D lifeforms into the string. Yet all the way through we are told that the ship is drifting at a constant speed towards the string. If gravity is pulling at the ship, then it would be accelerating rather than moving at a constant speed.
Great Moment : Guinan needling Troi about applying for her job.
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : At one point the writers of this episode considered making Troi's loss of her empathic abilities permanent.
Quote : "Human intuition and instinct are not always right, but they do make life interesting." - Guinan to Troi.

Plotline

Troi must strugle to adapt after loosing all her empathic powers. But she may not have the time - for the Enterprise is being dragged to certain doom by something it cannot see.
