Episode propaganda

While en route to the Morgana Quadrant, the USS Enterprise is engulfed by a mysterious hole having no dimensions and void of all energy and matter. Captain Picard is perplexed by this mysterious oddity which cannot be measured or defined in Human terms, and the crew is caught in a trap which, by their standards, does not even exist.

Unable to escape from the powerful hole, Riker and Worf decide to investigate an abandoned starship also marooned in the trap. On board the ship, the officers are confounded by a series of inexplicable incidents, but return safely to the Enterprise.

The crew is then confronted by a giant face which peers in at them through the main view screen. The being, calling itself Nagilum (Earl Boen), explains that he is using the Enterprise in an experiment to study Human life - specifically, the many ways in which Humans die.
