One of my favourite episodes of TNG - very emotive and touching. I enjoy the way that Picard steps in a starts quoting morals and ethics to an Admiral who ought to know better but brushes Picard aside and continues with his plans to remove Lal only to be thwarted at the eleventh hour when Lal starts to shut down being unable to handle the emotions that she has learned; an unexpected twist in the tale which even Data had not foreseen - just brilliant story-telling and acted out with style.

Love it
