In his latest experiment to understand Humanity, Data begins dating a fellow officer. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is passing through a nebula which is wreaking havoc aboard ship...
What a great episode... these days I appreciate a good character piece and this is one of the best. You almost feel sorry for Lieutenant D'Sora, falling for the emotionless Data, or did she feel the need to coach someone through romance?

The B-plot with the havoc aboard ship was interesting, the scene with Worf and Picard in the Ready Room (Picard on the deck with his desk objects... Worf asking if the Captain did that!) added a bit of humour to the otherwise emotionally heavy episode.
