Night Terrors

You would think that being trapped immobile in space would be the biggest problem facing the Enterprise. It is not. The biggest problem is that almost no one is dreaming. If they do not start soon, someone is going to die, followed by everyone else. The only person on the ship still dreaming may have the answer. But can she get it to the beings that are stopping the dreams? Find out when we put Night Terrors in the Mission Log.

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to address the consistent issue about the “computer” because there are a lot of fundamental assumptions Bennington made about the computer that are highly unlikely to be true. Not impossible but improbable.

    They all come down to the idea that everything on the entries is monitored by over single “entity” called a computer. Even your phone is far from a single entity but a collection of programs that have no real interaction. The computers on the enterprise have done universal interaction components, voice, wall panels etc… But there will be a programming and electronics installed into a door that can access data stored in the enterprise data banks so it can make determinations. After that it’s simple hierarchy decision making. I’d there a combadge, is the door private, etc…

    This would be true of every function on the ship, just like in Data. The difference is that Data has a programming, with sub routines, to govern learning and awareness… Somehow. Without this programming there is very little possibility of self awareness. In addition, Data can write his own programs, this altering himself. A form of conscious evolution.

    An atmospheric ep, with a Kyle McLachlan look-alike and one truly unfortunate low angle shot.

    The crew of the Reliant (the K car of starships — A nice reliant automob–uh, starship) made out relatively well as far as crews of Miranda class ships. The Reliant was destroyed and her Captain killed himself to be free of Khan’s control, but the crew was merely marooned, and later rescued by Kirk (they mentioned that’s what they are doing at the end of the movie).

    The Lantree, on the other hand, had to be destroyed after everyone died of premature old age. Two Saratogas were lost to the Borg and that whale probe.

    Although around longer, Miranda class ships are almost as disastrous as Galaxy class. I don’t know if any Galaxy class ship has been shown on Trek and not eventually been destroyed. At least the Tien Nan Men Reliant class ship didn’t get destroyed as part of the blockade in the Klingon civil war.

      I always enjoy seeing on the decks of other ships. It reminds you how spoiled the Enterprise crew are.

    • Mark Sabella says:

      Well said! Good info. & I thought I would be smart by imparting on to you all the mere fact that the Reliant crew was marooned…

      Incidentally, I wonder why Kahn did that? Too much of a bother to kill them? Or did he want them to die as his people died? Probably the latter…

    Isn’t the red hydrogen release from the Bussard collectors the same thing as the Crimson Force Field used against the Pakleds?

    1- Stuff You Should Know did a podcast on Sleep Deprivation that can actually kill. Scary.

    2- Yes the gun under the bar scene was fun, but are we going to ask why Guinan feels the need to have a gun under the bar? The crew of the Enterprise are a much rougher crew than we were lead to believe. How often does this happen?

    3- I totally agree that this is an extremely well acted episode that is let down by the Flying Troi.

    4- I seem to remember that the Comm badges can record Bio Data of various crew members.

    Gentlemen, with a plenitude of deep respect and admiration, I must, at last, BEG you to knock off the booby trap jokes. You have my unending thanks.

    In this episode Troi flies around like Supergirl looking for Hydrogen, while only Picard gets an Oscar while passing out . Dorn tries to save the episode by killing himself, but then changes his mind.
