Synopsis: Data’s head comes off.
Memory Alpha Summary: You may now give birth
Review: A very contrived episode, an homage to disaster movies, yet still very fun. Riker carrying Data’s head around is freaking awesome. Worf delivering a baby gives him a succession of great one-liners. And Picard stuck in an elevator shaft with three young children is just ripe a situation as one can get. Troi commanding the bridge was good for her character development, but not for Ro’s. And I was annoyed by the Geordi/Beverly situation, especially because they inhale before decompressing the cargo bay. Nobody on the writing team realized that carrying oxygen in your lungs when exposed to space is a bad idea?
I’m also shaking my head at Picard opening episodes with, “As we’ve finished early with x assignment, our wait for our next assignment will provide a nice respite for the crew.” That just screams disaster right there.
I love the final scene when the kids present the captain with the plaque. Heartstring city right there.
