You know those aliens who give anal probes to rural farmers and perform cattle mutilations? Well, Earth is not the only focus of their surgical investigations, as the Enterprise is loath to discover. As the episode opens, Commander Riker has been having trouble sleeping. Rather, he's been falling asleep fine but waking up unrested. Soon others begin to feel "off" in a similar way. Then Geordi somehow winds up with a foreign bacterial infection that interferes with his visor. The trouble is traced to a subspace rupture in cargo bay four. Expanding on the late-'80s phenomenon of recovered memories, a group therapy session on the holodeck reconstructs the alien operating room that they all believe they've been taken to, giving them comfort in knowing the alien violations are really happening. Meanwhile, the subspace rupture is expanding to the point where it may destroy the Enterprise, and they need to figure out a way to stop it. The ultimate message of this episode is that there are forces in the universe that we may never understand, and it's more than likely that these forces are malevolent. Oh, and Data learns that poetry cannot be good or interesting if it's just technical formalism without emotional substance. --Andy Spletzer

From the Back Cover:

While mapping an extremely dense globular cruster, sensors aboard the Enterprise mistakenly detect a massive explosion in cargo bay. When crew members who were near the cargo bay begin to exhibit strange symptoms, including excessive fatigue, paid and anxiety, an investigation reveals a mysterious sub-space force in the room. Troi (Marina Sirtis) examines those afflicted and learns that they share a common memory of an intense emotional experience. When Data (Brent Spiner) learns that he was physically absent from the ship for more than an hour, Picard (Patrick Stewart) surmises that an alien force has been conducting secret medical experiments on the crew.
