The N'th Degree
Overall Ep :
First Aired :
1 Apr 1991
Season Ep :
When La Forge is messing about in one of the ship's Jeffries tubes, he gets a torch out and uses it to let him see into a junction box. A torch? Mister 'I can see across the whole electromagnetic spectrum and have a built in telescope and microscope' needs to use a torch?
Great Moment :
It was nice that the Cytherians turned out to have good intentions after all, though I'm a bit dubious about the morality of their methods - essentially they do pretty much what Voyager's Caretaker did.
Body Count :
The shuttlecraft Feynman seen in this episode is named for physicist and Nobel laureate Richard P. Feynman.
Lieutenant Barclay recieves a massive IQ boost, courtesy of an alien probe. Before anybody can stop him he hurls the Enterprise to the centre of the Galaxy to meet the mysterious Cytherians.
