The Enterprise gets pulled into a wormhole while investigating an unusual M-Class planet and he crew are all knocked unconscious. Data informs them that they were only out for 30 seconds but some things don’t add up – the planet has disappeared, Doctor Crusher’s moss samples have grown and Worf has a broken wrist but no memory of breaking it. Picard suspects Data isn’t telling the truth about the incident as he appears to be blocking the investigation at every turn. Could it be that they were out cold for longer and Data is under some alien influence? Or did the writers just watch Red Dwarf’s Thanks for the Memory and figured that would do?
