Near the end of the episode, Data claims that the evidence supports the idea that it is gravity that is pulling the ship and the 2-D lifeforms into the string. Yet all the way through we are told that the ship is drifting at a constant speed towards the string. If gravity is pulling at the ship, then it would be accelerating rather than moving at a constant speed.
Great Moment :
Guinan needling Troi about applying for her job.
Body Count :
At one point the writers of this episode considered making Troi's loss of her empathic abilities permanent.
Troi must strugle to adapt after loosing all her empathic powers. But she may not have the time - for the Enterprise is being dragged to certain doom by something it cannot see.
