This an episode that I think pushes way past the fictional universe and 'real world' invades too much. Examples:
- Bringing Leah back. Doesn't really fit the story at all, no need, but the writers decided she was in it before and they want her back.
- Leah must like Geordi. We think she's overreacting because we know he's a decent guy. But it doesn't fit with what she would think. She is there only as a chess piece for his story.
- The tieing together of stories. Children outside, children for engineers, tied together into a 'Child' episode name. All too neat.
Also I think it backward pollutes Booby Trap. How on earth did the holodec create Brahms like a silly tart in the original episode if she's really like this?
I do like that they save the litle babby alien though.
