Season Ep :
La Forge claims to have given the shuttle a full safety inspection, which it passed. So why after the crash do we find that it carried no emergency rations or supplies?
Picard claims that the water-cave is natural in origin. So natural processes carved that nice, smooth, regular rock staircase?
Great Moment :
Being rid of Wesley!
Body Count :
One, the miner guy who was plasti-wrapped.
This episode was originally going to have Picard and Wesley crashland on an ice planet, but the powers that be decided that the ice planet set wouldn't look realistic enough and so moved it to a desert that they could shoot on location.
The crew of the Enterprise breathe sigh of relief as Wesley ships off to Starfleet academy after once again saving the day by his extreme nerdiness.
