Image via WikipediaM is for Majel Barett. Do you ever get that creeped out bogeyman vibe? You know the kind that surprises unsuspecting sleepers with goosebumps during the night.
But hey, thats never going to happen! right?? And everyone makes mistakes or so we tell ourselves....But what happens when something goes afoot? Who do we turn to for forgiveness? At sometime during your earthling life you've probably stepped on some poor, harmless, creature squashing it right into the pavement. In fact we're snuffing out lifeforms right now, everyday with our big clumsy loafers!!! Hows your conscience feeling now? Well now its pay back time, so don't be surprised when big brothers comes to get you! Oh sure you can surround yourself in a ring of steel with force fields on but it won't keep the bogeyman out. You've been a very naughty person. Imagine how the neighbours will react. Goldilocks will never speak to you again.
But take comfort. If you're a cat owner or petlover then the chances are good you'll really enjoy Star Trek's TNG Schisms. This episode has Data reading his "Ode to Spot."
The crew of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D thought they were invincible, safe aboard their mighty Federation Flagship but Starfleet's finest thought wrong, big style. I must warn you readers, "Schisms" is pretty creepy, so prepare yourself for an awesome Star Trek TNG episode with sinister aliens. One night as Commander Riker, Chief of Security, Worf and Chief Engineer, Geordi La Forge were sleeping soundly in their beds an insidious race of solanagen-based aliens crept silently aboard and kidnapped them.
What follows comes in the shape of a Medical Horror with biobed nightmares proving too much for some crew members who meet their maker afterwards. The abductees try to piece together a reproduction of the biobed from their hazy memories by reaching deep into their subconscious thoughts. The mysterious aliens conducted a secret experiment on living Enterprise crew for no other reason other than to satisfy scientific curiosity. The aliens fail to realise that they are leaving behind clues. The abducted crew members are kept drugged and asleep during their ordeal, but are nonetheless left physically exhausted. This causes some of them to seek medical help. Dr Beverly Crusher soon realizes that theres more to this than bad dreams and disturbed sleep. Many Enterprise crew have undergone metabolic changes and some have had limbs severed and invisibly reattached. Sweet dreams Trekkers!
