Episode Info

Data embarks upon a routine mission to save the planet Atrea Four from destruction. En route to his destination, he makes the acquaintance of one of the resident scientists, Dr. Juliana Tainer (Fionulla Flanagan). Data is thrown for a loop (to put it mildly) when Tainer insists that she is really Juliana Soong, ex-wife of scientist Noonian Soong, and Data's own mother. Initially aired on November 27, 1993, "Inheritance" was written by Dan Koeppel and Rene Echevarria.
