Moral :
Brainwashing : Even the best of people can be twisted.
YATI : Geordi and Data test out a phaser rifle in this episode. In order to do this they set up the weapon in the middle of main engineering. They fire it into a small target apparatus directly in front of the master situation display, and don't even go to the trouble of putting up a warning sign or rope barrier to stop people walking into the beam. I don't know what kind of safety regulations there are for firing phaser beams aboard ship, but surely they can do better than this!

One of the things that makes Data suspicious of Geordi is the fact that a scan of Geordi's shuttle shows that it has been subjected to a tractor beam. But we've seen before that shuttles are often landed by tractor beams on the Enterprise - see Time Squared for an example. So shouldn't ALL the shuttles display signs of having been subject to a tractor beam?
Great Moment : Geordi's last scene with Troi.
Body Count : A holographic O'Brien is killed by Geordi.

Plotline

Geordie LaForge is abducted and brain washed by the mysterious Sela. Under Romulan control he attempts to end the Fereration - Klingon alliance once and for all.
