Stardate 46191.2: After Riker’s complaints of fatigue, Geordi’s VISOR causing him problems, and Worf feeling unusually jumpy, it becomes apparent that an external influence is responsible. Counselor Troi investigates and finds that several crew members have complained of similar symptoms stemming from unsettling dreams. Gradually, using a holodeck recreation of the dream environment programmed by those suffering the unusual effects, a mysterious string of experiments conducted by aliens from within the physical domain of subspace is discovered. As more incidents occur, with the crew powerless to stop them, the experiments become more deadly. Riker, who has been frequently experimented upon by the aliens, volunteers to take part in an experiment of the crew’s own to see if the instrusions can be halted.
