While playing host to delegates of the Antica and Selay, an alien life form wreaks havoc on the Enterprise computer - and begins to take over the minds of her crew.
Some more firsts in this episode. The senior, senior staff discuss the predicament in Picard's Ready Room... Riker and Picard tell Data about Sherlock Holmes and he seems very interested in learning more, later in the episode he takes on the persona amazingly! (Elementary, my dear Riker...sir.)

And no wonder La Forge got sent down to engineering - the run of "Chief's" down there are useless! Poor Mr. Singh, the first death on the ship.

Picard's performance on the bridge, when he was inhabited by the alien entity showed just how good an actor he is, and will become.
