||Scenes from this episode stayed with me since I first saw it in the 1990s before I was a Star Trek fan. There's something about having the status quo turned on its head and the crew having to survive on their own initiative as the ship we're so familiar with, their home, in unable to support them and may turn into their tomb. Yes, having a pregnant woman suddenly give birth is a cliche (reminds me of John Shepherd's funny "And then WHAM!" quote in Stargate Atlantis) but it's well-handled here. Poor old Troi only inherits command when the E-D is doomed, you can't blame a counsellor for not donning a cape and flying round the outside of the ship magically repairing everything.
