An alien entity possesses Dr. Crusher, Worf, and Picard while the Enterprise is transporting delegates from two feuding planets.
Review: First part of the story is when the enterprise is to take two enemy species, the Anticans and Selayans, to Parlament. On the way, a mysterious energy pattern that starts by zapping Worf before transferring to Dr. Crusher and then the Enterprise’s computer system. Eventually it kills an engineer Singh. Finally, it ends up in Captain Picard, taking control of his mind and body. Will Picard survive? Of course the crew figures out a way to get him back to his normal self. It was an okay episode.
My Rating: 2.5 out of 5
