First Contact: ‘Brothers’ Season 4 Episode 3

FIRST CONTACT: ‘BROTHERS’ SEASON 4 EPISODE 3

After his brother plays a practical joke that goes wrong, a child called Willie is left fighting for his life on the Enterprise. Meanwhile Data goes bonkers and steals the ship, locking the computer by doing impressions and entering really big numbers as passwords. Turns out, he’s reacting to a homing beacon sent by his father Doctor Noonien Soongh. But this happy reunion is cut short when trouble appears in the form of Lore. Soongh is sick and wants to give Data a gift before he dies. But if Data doesn’t get back to the ship and return control to Picard, the random child might die and we’re supposed to care.

Join James, Andrew and Alex as they discuss this season 4 episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
