YATI :
This episode makes it clear just how hard it is to kill a Klingon - they even have a backup brain that can bring them back from death! So how come Worf has at least twice threatened to kill himself with a knife (Night Terrors and this episode)? Surely he would recover from this fairly easily?

The number of times that the Enterprise gets banged around enough to - almost - throw a person off their feet is so great it is one of the best known cliches of the entire Trek legend. Yet not only do they never have seatbelts, they never make any effort to tie down their cargo containers!
Great Moment :
Worf coming alive again.
Body Count :
Uncertain - at least one patient dies under Dr. Russell's care.
Factoid :
This episode features La Forge wearing a beard, an experiment that the creators allowed LeVar Burton to try only once.

Plotline

Doctor Crusher must deal with a neurogeneticist who cares more about her research than her patients. Unfortunately, she may be the only hope for a paralysed Worf.
