Episode propaganda

Working on an insomnia-inspired personal assignment in the middle of the night, Picard's curiosity is aroused when he finds many of the ship's computer functions have been taken offline. He goes to the source of the situation, the Stellar Sciences Department, and meets Lieutenant Commander Nella Daren (Wendy Hughes), the section's new department head. Nella and her staff are using the early morning quiet attempting to construct a mathematical map of an emerging star system. Picard is intrigued by this lovely, intelligent woman - and his attraction increases the next evening, when he is overwhelmed by Nella's amazing piano performance during a concert.

He expresses his appreciation afterward, and she - impressed by his musical knowledge - suggests they play together sometime. The attraction seems to be mutual.
