Episode Info

This first-season Next Generation episode finds Captain Picard facing a dilemma previously encountered some nine decades earlier by Captain Kirk and the original Enterprise crew. An insidious mind-altering disease, which prompted the crew of another starship to commit mass suicide, wends its way aboard the Enterprise. Before long, Lt. Geordi LaForge has become infected with the horrible illness. Brooke Bundy guest stars as MacDougal. Written by John D.F. Black and J. Michael Bingham, "The Naked Now" first aired October 10, 1987.
