Funnily enough, they had the same reaction to Nemesis.

I know, I can't help but feel that something terrible has happened to the planet "Lucases brain".

I know that's from the second season of TNG, but I reckon someone nerdier than me can tell you what episode...

I think we should give that guy a nerd oscar...because it really was funny at first, but towards the end I get really sad, and it literally hurts my soul to see someone in so much pain... :'(

It's "Where Silence Has Lease", and that is Ensign Haskell having a Scanners style headache.

Quote
Nagilum ignores Picard's and instead displays curiosity as to why humans have a "limited existence" which ends in death. Without warning, the ship's conn officer, Ensign Haskell, begins to convulse violently. With a scream he collapses in a fetal-position on the floor. Dr. Pulaski rushes to help him but he is dead. Nagilum watches with fascination as Picard reacts with anger, shouting that he cannot allow him to do that.

He was a black dude wearing a red shirt.  The poor guy had no chance at all.

Well spoken, sir!   :clap:


Actually, the actor realized he was on a Star Trek show...
