Episode Info

The phrase "second childhood" takes a bizarre turn in this episode, which first aired November 7, 1992. As a result of a freak transformer mishap, Picard, Ro, Guinan, and Keiko are transformed into 12-year-old children. The youngsters' dilemma may prove beneficial in the long run when the Enterprise is captured by Ferengi raiders. The child actors chosen to portray the younger Picard and his associates so closely resemble their older counterparts that the effect is downright uncanny. Scripted by Alison Hock from a story by Ward Dru Botsford, Diana Dru Botsford, and Michael Piller, "Rascals" was directed by Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy.
