Paramount Television eventually sought the advice of the creator of Star Trek , Gene Roddenberry , who set about creating the new show with mostly former The Original Series staff members. An entirely new cast were sought, which concerned some members of The Original Series crew, as Roddenberry did not want to re-tread the same steps as he had in the first series to the extent that well known Star Trek aliens such as Vulcans , Klingons and Romulans were banned at first.

Among the growing pains though, there was some good work being done. The story is nothing spectacular nor are there any major action sequences. The best scene by far is when Worf discovers the engineer slumped over his console; the music is pure science fiction. Worf also has some excellent lines early in the episode, and the reactions to Dr. Crusher while she is under the alien influence are funny as well. Two storylines are taking place in this episode, one involving Wesley Crusher taking an early Starfleet Academy entrance exam and the other having the crew of the Enterprise under investigation by Starfleet — with Captain Picard being the focus of the inquiries.
