Synopsis: Data malfunctions while on a surveying mission and forces the Enterprise to come out to investigate.

Reaction: There is some great interaction between the characters here, and the pacing is fine, but this could have done with a little less political posturing.

Personal Rating: 8/10

"Definitely feeling aggressive tendencies, sir!"
