Remember Me: 7/10
A welcome return back to good episodes! Doctor Crusher, while visiting her son Wesley during his experiment with warp bubbles, is inadvertently sent to a bubble universe that is quickly collapsing. She finds that she can remember people that nobody else can and soon everyone on the Enterprise, excluding herself disappear. The phenomenon has her questioning her sanity, but she soon realizes the cause of the anomaly.
In the real universe Wesley and the rest of the Enterprise crew are in search for Beverly, and he soon finds himself in the company of an individual known solely as the Traveler, who has a strange and powerful, almost spiritual, connection with warp fields, and this warp bubble that the Doctor has found herself trapped inside. He helps Wesley find a way to reach his mother and bring her back to reality.
My qualm with this episode lies in the fact that this episode muddles a hard scifi concept such as bending time and space, and creating a pocket or bubble universe, with the easy write-out of science fantasy. If this were Doctor Who, I'd let this slide just a bit as the show is known for themes of science fantasy, but Star Trek is held to a different degree of seriousness (in my book anyway). The Traveler basically told Wesley to use the Force as a way to retrieve his mother. One idea that I did like, however, was how both parties on either side had to try and work it out together, and only then did Doctor Crusher get free.
