Episode propaganda

The lives of the USS Enterprise crew are endangered when the ship suddenly develops its own intelligence.

Picard and the crew are concerned when an unexplained series of mechanical malfunctions occurs aboard the Enterprise. First, a runaway train suddenly appears in the holodeck, then the ship takes itself into warp and locks out all propulsion access. Determined to regain control, Picard orders an emergency core shutdown but before Geordi can carry out the order the ship takes itself out of warp. An investigation reveals the Enterprise somehow protected itself - it would have exploded just a moment later if it didn't go to warp.
