Die Enterprise nähert sich dem Wissenschaftsschiff S.S. Tsiolkovsky, das den Zusammenbruch eines roten Riesensterns beobachten soll. Man erhält von der Tsiolkovsky merkwürdige Nachrichten; die gesamte Mannschaft scheint betrunken oder gar verrückt geworden zu sein. Das Landeteam findet nur noch Tote auf der Tsiolkovsky. Es stellt sich heraus, dass die Mannschaft durch den rapiden Gravitationswechsel im Körper ein Gift gebildet hat, das in den menschlichen Gehirnen keinen vernünftigen Gedanken mehr zulässt. Schon bald zeigt sich, dass auch die Mannschaft der Enterprise infiziert worden ist. Das Schiff gerät vollständig außer Kontrolle, der junge Wesley hat das Kommando übernommen. Als der Riesenstern explodiert, drohen Teile der Oberfläche das Schiff zu zerschmettern. Data stellt fest, dass Dr. McCoy von der Enterprise NCC-1701 bei einem ähnlichem Vorfall ein Gegengift gefunden hatte...
Synopsis
The U.S.S. Enterprise and crew are summoned to investigate strange occurrences aboard the starship U.S.S. Tsiolkovsky, which has been monitoring the collapse of a red-orange star.

Once aboard the troubled research vessel, the away team finds a ship littered with food, wine, discarded clothes, several frozen bodies and no survivors.

Unknowingly, Geordi energizes back aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise carrying a contagious, deadly contaminant that begins to infect the entire Starfleet crew, making them feel and act as if they were intoxicated and mentally unstable.

While Dr. Crusher searches for an antidote, chaos erupts when Wesley takes control of the ship.

Finally, Lieutenant Commander Data and Chief Engineer Sarah McDougal, fighting the effects of the ailment, manage to get control of the ship. While Dr. Crusher administers the remedy to the mysterious contaminant, the crew, with Wesley's assistance, diverts the ship from further danger when a piece of the star's surface breaks off and heads directly toward the U.S.S. Enterprise. Captain Picard commends his crew for a job well done.

For the only time in recorded history, Dr. Crusher is really sexy.

I know it's only the second episode but the cast seem to be stumbling around in the dark trying to find thier characters. This only makes it more hillarious. Even if Wil Weaton's acting is so bad it is almost not funny. The scene with Picard and Crusher in the ready room is classic. And it has Data's famous "fully functional" line.
