Episode Quotes

Lt. Commander Data: It is fortunate we were able to coordinate your return on the Teldarian cruiser.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah. When I heard the Enterprise had been ordered to the Krios system, I thought I might be forced to endure another couple of weeks on Risa.
Lt. Commander Data: I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy yourself.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I was joking.
Lt. Commander Data: Joking? Ah! "Forced to endure" Risa. Your actual intent was to emphasize that you *did* enjoy yourself. Yes. I see how that could be considered quite amusing.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: [laughs] I missed you, Data!
Taibak: Welcome, Mr. La Forge. We've waited a long time to meet you.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I can tell you've gone to a lot of trouble.
Taibak: Indeed we have.
Counselor Deanna Troi: It'll take time, Geordi. A long time. But we will reconstruct your memory. Together.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I'm just not sure. About anything.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Believe it or not, that's a good sign. A beginning. Now, let's go back to the shuttlecraft. There was a Romulan ship, and the first thing you did was...?

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (plot holes): Why do the shields of the shuttle fail? The Romulan warbird didn't even fire.
  • Goof (plot holes): The computer tells Geordi that Risa is "climate controlled for optimum tourist comfort." As Risa hosts multiple species this would be impossible. For example, Vulcans would consider the comfort zone for humans to be quite cold, while Andorians would find it too hot.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: While being brainwashed by the Romulans, Geordie uses his phaser to shoot O'Brien in the chest, killing him. However, when the camera pans to show O'Brien lying dead, his uniform shows no signs of being hit with phaser fire. Although this is a simulation by the Romulans, it is unlikely that they would omit this particular detail.
  • Goof (factual errors): The title of the episode, as displayed within the episode itself, is missing the apostrophe, making it grammatically incorrect.

Trivia

  • This takes place in 2367.
  • First Star Trek appearance of John Fleck, best known as recurring villain Silik the Suliban in Star Trek: Enterprise.
  • 47-Reference: As Geordi LaForge is rerouting the power flow from the transporter in Cargo Bay IV to the replicator system, the computer informs him that "Power has been rerouted through auxiliary power distribution system code number 44762".
  • SPOILER: The Romulan woman standing in the shadows is later revealed in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987) {Redemption (#4.26)} to be Sela, played by Denise Crosby. However, the shadowed Sela in The Mind's Eye was stand-in Debra Dilley, with Crosby providing the voice in post-production.
