Star Trek: The Next Generation “Sub Rosa” (part 4 of 4)
In the Captain’s Ready Room, Picard and Troi try to make some sense out of Crusher’s actions. Picard wonders if “this Ronin could be exerting some sort of influence over her?” It’s called the influence of giving her multiple orgasms. Try it sometime, Jean-Luc. Troi thinks this is possible, but also says it could be that Beverly really believes she’s in love. They both agree that it’s a rash decision, but Beverly has every right to make it.
Data enters to announce he and his lover Geordi have detected the same “anaphasic signature” that killed Willie and caused the storms, and it’s “coming from the cemetery!” Picard has him head down there and “pinpoint the source”. Hell, I can pinpoint the source from here. It’s Nana’s grave. After Data leaves, Picard says, “I would like to meet with this… Ronin,” practically spitting out the guy’s name.
Geordi and Data show up at the cemetery. Of course, it’s night, and all of this is played like a really bad take-off on Dark Shadows. Sure enough, the energy is coming from Felisa Howard’s grave.
