Remember Me

Plot Summary: Beverly Crusher welcomes her elderly mentor Dr. Quaice aboard the Enterprise and is sad to hear of his loneliness after the death of his wife. Thinking of her own late husband, she goes to visit her son in Engineering and arrives just in time to see an odd burst of light caused by Wesley's warp bubble experiment. Not long after, she goes to visit Quaice and learns that he is no longer on the ship. Picard and Worf tell her that there is no evidence he ever came on board, and O'Brien cannot remember Quaice's arrival, though he was working the transporter controls at the time. At first suspecting a conspiracy centered on Quaice, Crusher then learns that her medical staff has disappeared and that the crew is shrinking - and no one else remembers any of those people being on board in the first place. When a violent vortex begins to appear on the ship, Crusher is convinced that Wesley's experiment must be connected to it, though LaForge can find no evidence of any sort of disruption. Worse, Wesley disappears in the middle of a discussion about whether the Traveler might be able to help with Wesley's equations. People continue to disappear around her until Picard - the last remaining crewmember - tells her that he can give her no answers about why he and Crusher have been sent out alone to study the cosmos. Then he disappears as well. Meanwhile, a full crew minus Crusher tries to figure out how the doctor became trapped in Wesley's warp bubble. The Traveler arrives to assist them, saying that Crusher is trapped in a reality based on her own thoughts and they must retrieve her before the warp bubble collapses. Crusher is able to determine from the ship's computer that she must be caught in the warp bubble and heads to engineering, guessing correctly that the vortex is a way out. She leaps through it as the bubble collapses, eradicating her private universe, and finds herself in a properly crowded engineering section.

This was one of the earliest TNG episodes I ever saw. It made quite an impression.

I only saw this once as a kid, but it helped spoil the ridiculously smug Eternal Sunshine for me. "Ooh, aren't we clever? People are disappearing out of someone's mind!" I just yawned and said, "TNG went there first." :-P

Re: Remember Me

To me, this episode was always an inside joke. It was episode #80, one more than TOS. Crusher makes a comment along the lines of "you can't just erase people you've known for three years" -- referencing the original series' popularity well beyond its three-year run.

Re: Remember Me

Always loved this episode, even though I was never much of a Crusher fan. The concept is just too cool, and so well-executed. I love the seemingly logical explanations for why the ship is so empty!

Re: Remember Me

i loved this ep because it was a dr crusher ep. i have watched and listened to this ep so many times i would recite all the lines with them lol. >_<

this was supposed to be a data ep but since crusher's return, the writers really haven't had a chance to write her in much so they switched it to her instead. also, after filming this ep, she found out she was pregnant.

Re: Remember Me

I always found this episode creepy, in a good way. Imagine your whole universe is getting smaller. That's scary!

No, the episode the following week - "Legacy" - was episode 80. The writers recognized the significance of that and wrote a specific inside joke into Picard's log at the beginning of "Legacy:" he notes that the Enterprise is passing up a scheduled rendezvous with archaeologists on Camus II. Of course, it was on Camus II that Kirk found himself switching bodies with Janice Lester in the final episode of TOS.

Re: Remember Me

I like this episode. It was a neat concept.

I also like the potential continuity goof. Crusher goes into "Not.Reality." without a doctor jacket, but emerges from one with it. So, either this was a screw up, or the "Not.Reality." can create matter and it can be transported into the real world!
