Hero Worship

Star Trek: The Next GenerationStardate 45397.3: Investigating the disappearance of the USS Vico, the Enterprise crew finds that the missing vessel has been heavily damaged and is adrift inside a dark matter cluster. A single survivor, young Timothy, is rescued by Data, and is the only means of finding out what happened since the logs of the disaster were also damaged. Timothy tries to emulate Data’s lack of emotions in order to overcome his own confused feelings, but stops short of telling the truth about what happened – which is what Picard needs to know as the Enterprise follows the Vico’s fateful course.
