CRUSHER: Incredible! The production of neurotransmitters in your brain has jumped by over five hundred percent. Pre and postsynaptic membranes have increased permeability to match it. I couldn't even guess at your IQ level now.

BARCLAY: Probably somewhere between twelve hundred and fourteen fifty.

CRUSHER: But that isn't all. The corpus callosum, the connecting bridge between both sides of the brain, it is so active now that the hemispheres are essentially behaving as one.

LAFORGE: So, it's not just raw intelligence we're talking about here.

CRUSHER: No. Creativity, resourcefulness, inspiration, imagination, they've all been enhanced. Lieutenant, you could very well be the most advanced human being who has ever lived.

Season 4 Episode 19

When assigned to investigate an unknown probe, Lt. Barclay is electrocuted through a shuttlecraft's computer, where he receives an unexplainable boost of confidence and a vast increase in his knowledge.

The Enterprise checks on the Argus array, a giant Federation outskirts astronomical telescope, which stopped signaling data months ago. Geordi and mentally rehabilitated engineer Lieutenant Reg Barclay, try to repair it but an intense energy surge from an alien probe of unknown technology electrocutes Barclay and even causes serious damage on board the ship. Barclay soon recovers while the probe follows closely, building up a dangerous field but unresponsive to full phasers. Now Barclay demonstrates surprising insight and knowledge, saving the situation by repairing power and getting photon torpedoes ready which destroy the probe. Reg's useful but inexplicable erudition proves invaluable for telescope repairs too. Even his theatrical, romantic (towards Troi) and formerly inexistent violin performances improve suddenly , thanks to a confidence boost. When Dr. Crusher finds his brain improved more then any human causing unprecedented intelligence, he is also considered a potential risk

LAFORGE: Where's Lieutenant Barclay?

LARSON: I stopped by his quarters on my way over. He wasn't there.

LAFORGE: Computer, location of Lieutenant Barclay.

COMPUTER: Lieutenant Barclay is on holodeck three.


EINSTEIN: G sub I, J of t as t approaches infinity.

BARCLAY: G of t over G naught.

EINSTEIN: So it is, so it is.

BARCLAY: I still don't see how you're going to incorporate quantum principle into general relativity without adjusting the cosmological constant a lot more than you're doing here.

EINSTEIN: If we increase the value as you suggest, we must face the possibility of twenty six dimensions, instead of ten.

BARCLAY: I don't think I could deal with that.

EINSTEIN: I certainly could not.

BARCLAY: If the semiset curved into the subatomic, the infinities might cancel each other out.

EINSTEIN: Gruss Gott. They just might.

LAFORGE: We had a meeting at oh seven hundred.

BARCLAY: I'm sorry, Commander. Thank you, Professor. End programme.


LAFORGE: What was that all about?

BARCLAY: I had some ideas late last night. I needed to consult with the computer about some quantum electrodynamic calculations. A holodeck Einstein programme seemed like the best way. I guess I went a little overboard.

LAFORGE: A little? Most of the stuff on that blackboard was way out of my league. And yours too.

BARCLAY: Not really. I just haven't thought along those lines before. It's all pretty evident now, and if you were to put your mind to it I'm sure

LAFORGE: Reg, ever since our run in with that probe, something's different about you.

BARCLAY: What, because I'm beginning to behave like the rest of the crew? With confidence in what I'm doing?

LAFORGE: You just spent the entire night arguing grand unification theories with Albert Einstein!

BARCLAY: Yes, but

Adama: Good morning. (yells) Attention on deck!

Adama: Hey, Chief. At ease.

Chief: (gestures) This way.

(Cut to some techs pulling a sheet off an old-model Viper.)

Adama: (smiles) Mark II. Haven't seen one of these in about twenty years.

Chief: If the commander will take a closer look. (The side of the ship reads: Lt. William Adama, "Husher") (Adama laughs) At the tail numbering. Nebula 7242 Constellation.

Adama: Oh my god. Where did you find her?

Chief: Rusting out in a salvage yard in Saggitarion. We had hoped the commander would allow her to participate in the decommissioning ceremony.

Adama: She'll fly?

Chief: Oh yes, sir. We've restored the engines, patched the guidance system, replaced much of the controls...

Adama: You guys are amazing.

Chief: ...she's fueled, armed. Ready for launch, sir. (He holds out a package) Commander.

Adama: What, more? (Takes it, opens the paper) Somebody's buckin' for promotion around here.

[Kirk's quarters]

KIRK: All right, explanation? Why was my phaser order countermanded?

DECKER: Sir, the Enterprise redesign increases phaser power by channelling it through the main engines. When they went into anti-matter imbalance, the phasers were automatically cut off.

KIRK: Then you acted properly, of course.

DECKER: Thank you, sir. ...I'm sorry if I embarrassed you.

KIRK: You saved the ship.

DECKER: I'm aware of that, sir.

KIRK: Stop ...competing with me, Decker!

DECKER: Permission to speak freely, sir?

KIRK: Granted.

DECKER: Sir, you haven't logged a single star hour in two and a half years. That, plus your unfamiliarity with the ship's redesign, in my opinion, sir, seriously jeopardises this mission.

WALLACE: Yeah, but ...

CURTIS: Look around! This planet is a dead zone!

WALLACE: But ...

FRANKLIN: We should have been trying to dial these other planets from the start.

WALLACE: But Rush said ...

CURTIS: We don't care what Rush said!

FRANKLIN: We don't trust him.

WALLACE (pointedly): Rush doesn't want us all to die!

(Eli turns back to her.)

WALLACE: You too?! What about the lake bed?

PALMER: It could be hundreds of miles from here. We could be blowing our only chance of finding a decent place to evac.

FRANKLIN: Maybe the ship did bring us here because there's lime on this planet. For all we know, the Ancients had a way of locating it that we don't.

CURTIS: For that matter, I'm sure they could have stopped the ship for longer than twelve hours to find it, and recover it with the proper tools.

FRANKLIN: The fact is, the Ancients wouldn't have let the life support system get that screwed up in the first place. Rush is set on fixing the ship. He's deaf to any other logic. We need to find a planet we can survive on. (He waves the Ancient device.) This might be our last chance.

When I read about this hijacked aircraft, I recognized the Microsoft employee ID 75612 that Microsoft assigned to me on 12/7/1998, which was 33 months, 4 days, before 9/11/2001:

Flight 175
Tail number N612UA

United Airlines Flight 175 was a morning flight that regularly flew from Logan International Airport in East Boston, Massachusetts to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Los Angeles, California (Boston–Los Angeles route). On September 11, 2001, the United Airlines Boeing 767-222, registered N612UA

From 5/9/1978 to 7/16/1979 is: 433 days

Marwan Yousef al-Shehhi (May 9, 1978 — September 11, 2001) was named by the FBI as the suicide pilot aboard United Airlines flight 175 which crashed into the second World Trade Center tower on September 11, 2001. He trained at the Huffman Aviation pilot school with Mohammed Atta. At 23 years of age, he was youngest of the four pilots.

JAMES: What's going on?

GREER: I don't know, man. The air filter's full of crap. Come on - they want us to keep looking.

JAMES: Let's go.

FRANKLIN: All right, OK.

GATEROOM. Chloe walks into the room just as Adam Brody is testing the sludge from the scrubber.

BRODY: Alkaline.

JOHANSEN: Everyone's heart rates are elevated; people are reporting headaches. It has to be.

SCOTT: What?

BRODY: The used-up residue of whatever magic compound the Ancients used to scrub CO2 from the air.






SCOTT: So now we have two big problems relating to the life support.

RUSH: Our first priority must be to seal off any of the leaks. If we can manage that, then we can maybe buy ourselves a day or so before the build-up of CO2 kills us.

SCOTT: As it stands, how much time do we have?

RUSH: I don't know.

BRODY: A couple of hours at most.

WALLACE: Huh! Awesome(!)

RUSH: Brody, there was some medical-grade soda lime in the supply manifest?

PALMER: It never made it.

RUSH: It's a pity.






(He takes out his notebook from his jacket and extracts the pencil from the spine. Squatting down to the sludge, he pokes through it with the pencil.)

RUSH: Well, in a ship this old, there's bound to be systems past their design life.

SCOTT: OK, so let's say we find the leaks. Can you fix this?

RUSH (shaking his head): I doubt this stuff can be cooked off. Perhaps if there were stores of this substance in the clean form, or something else capable of CO2 sequestration - calcium carbonate, lithium hydroxide - then yes, if.

SCOTT: OK, well, that's not gonna matter because you're gonna get the Gate dialled back to Earth before this becomes an issue, Rush.

RUSH (standing up): Lieutenant ...

SCOTT: Right?

RUSH: That's the kind of thing you're taught to say in officer training, presumably for the benefit of those that don't know any better.

(Scott storms across the room and gets into Rush's face. He glares at him for a moment, then glances across to Chloe who lowers her head, trying not to cry [ OR: trying not to laugh ]. He realises that he can't make something happen just by ordering Rush to do it. He turns back to Rush, his voice pleading.)

SCOTT (softly): Please?
