Review

Series : The Next Generation Rating : 3
Disc No : 4.3 Episode : 84
First Aired : 7 Jan 1991 Stardate : 44390.1
Director : Robert Wiemer Year : 2367
Writers : Harold Apter Season : 4
Guest Cast :

Moral :
Busy : A lot happens in a typical day in a Starfleet officer's life.
YATI : Although Spiner does a good imitation of McFadden's tap dancing, there are a few steps that she does which he can't manage to duplicate. As an android, of course, Data should be able to replicate Crusher's dancing pretty much perfectly.
Great Moment : Data's dance lesson. I especially like his enthusiastic tap dancing, and the smile that could be used to frighten small children.
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : Tons of stuff in this one: Picard's intro to the wedding is identical to that which Kirk used in "Balance of Terror". This episode is the first to feature Data's pet cat, Spot. It marks the 1,550th day of the Enterprise-D's service life. It's also the first in which we see the Arboretum. More seriously, Picard was originally suggested as the one who was going to be married in this episode. That changed to O'Brien, who was going to marry a female conn officer there to replace Wesley Crusher. Finally, the character of Keiko was created for him to marry instead.
Quote : "Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you." - Riker to Picard

Plotline

Data agrees to record the activities of a typical day for Commander Maddox. Apparently a typical day for Data involves dancing lessons, treachery, weddings, transporter accidents, births, and the prospect of certain death.
