LaForge and another crewmember are the only ones left from an away mission from five years ago, and they begin to be attracted to the same planet. They discover that the others have been transformed into aliens and have disappeared.
I think I've just realised who the most under utilised character on the show was... Geordi. LeVar is a great actor, who helps us care about his character alot. Take this episode, where he's caring for his former colleague as she begins to transform into an alien lifeform.

This makes two episodes in a row that have focused on Geordi LaForge, and two episodes where he's tried to help a damsel. In this episode, at least, he is the main character, something which doesn't happen too often.
