First Contact: ‘Violations’ Season 5 Episode 12

The writers sat around thinking, you know what? It’s been awhile since an alien entered Troi’s quarters in the night, we better do some kind of psychic violation storyline. A delegation of three memory archaeologist aliens are on the Enterprise on their way to a planet to create some kind of history of some other aliens. Everyone is reluctant to use their services except Keiko because the actor was available. But one of them is clearly a baddie because sinister music plays when he gets in the turbolift and people keep falling into comas: first Troi, then Riker and finally Crusher. Data and Geordi investigate comas on other planets and it turns out this happens a lot when these guys are around. Everyone wakes up and the bad guy is revealed as the bad guy.
