While Picard's is running out of excuses to decline Admiral Nakamura's invitation to a Starfleet flag officers banquet, Geordi's having difficulties with installing a new warp core. Dr. Soong's dream program gives Data his first nightmares; Troi advises against stopping it. She suggests therapy and a temporary interruption when the visions disturb his internal chronometer so he oversleeps, and spontaneously occur while on duty. However one element proves a real organism, so it's decided that Geordi and Picard use a device that allows them to enter Data's dreams and interact with him and other characters.

In Data's first nightmare during the prologue, when he is dismantled by the miners, the prop head seen is the same one used in "Time's Arrow" Parts 1 and 2 (1992). The head is used again in Star Trek: Voyager for the episode "Unimatrix Zero: Part 1" (2000). In this case, it is redressed to represent the severed head of a Borg drone. See more
