Riker is the one who feels like what happened on the Tsiolkovsky is familiar and he gets Data to begin the long process of searching the databanks for a similar instance.

A deadly incident on a research vessel prompts the Enterprise to investigate why the crew went crazy and ended up accidentally killing themselves.

Crusher must race to find a cure before the Enterprise becomes a victim of a similar disastrous event caused by drunken behavior.
