Memory Alpha Well, there’s actually a lot to talk about in this episode.  I mean, the episode itself is terrible.  Apart from Data, the rest of the crews dismissive attitude toward discovering the twentieth century ship and survivors on board …

Memory Alpha O_O … His… … …… His head burst… I think when I watched this when I was younger it must have been edited for TV, because… his skull just popped.  I don’t remember that at all.  Have a …

Memory Alpha So this is it.  The episode in which we say farewell to Lieutenant Natasha Yar.  She got to phaser some aliens, so it’s not like her time on board was entirely wasted.  But, yeah, Denise Crosby apparently wasn’t …
