Episode #111: Hero Worship

Post  BoG on Fri Jun 04, 2010 6:44 pm



HERO WORSHIP - episode #11 of 5th season / Air Date: 2/9/92
written by Joe Menosky, story by Hillary J. Bader; Directed by Patrick Stewart

Another After School Special - TNG style, 24th century set. The Enterprise comes upon a severely-damaged science ship and find one survivor, a young boy. Data is instrumental in saving the boy from wreckage with his android strength and the boy gets attached to the machine man. The boy's parents were on the ship and both are dead. Then, the kid starts to imitate Data, including the lack of emotion - it's kid android! Troi has a technical term for this, er, personality regression; it's a way to deal with trauma.
The boy also makes up a story about what happened to the ship he was on - that it had been invaded by aliens in purple helmets or something (the Breen are mentioned). His real story turns out to be a remake of that old tale - a boy stuck his finger in a light socket and, at that exact same moment, the lights of the town all went out; the boy figures he caused the breakdown, but it was just coincidence. In the end, after he owns up, the boy here ends up helping Data get the Enterprise out of the same mess. How nice. BoG's Score: 5 out of 10
