And what a thing it spawned

Aired 5/27/91, Dated 44885.5
Teleplay by Rene Echevarria, Story by Ken Schafer and Rene Echevarria

This is Trek's first attempt at a story arc. See, there's this mystery woman in the shadows on the Romulan ship, who captures Geordi and brainwashes him, which is all fine and dandy, but let's go back to the mystery woman in the shadows. See, she's a bad bad person, you can tell, but you don't know who she is until later. That's really a fairly advanced concept for poor Star Trek. Up until that point the closest they'd gotten to a story arc was having the pink claymation alien dudes send a signal that never got answered because the concept was converted into the Borg.
