The Enterprise responds to a request for medical assistance from Dr. Ira Graves, considered by many to be the greatest living mind in the universe. Graves didn't want any help. The Enterprise was summoned by his assistant, Kareen. Graves, a crotchety old man who doesn't really like people, is now in the terminal stage of an illness. Having taught Data's creator, Dr. Soong, everything he knows, he fancies himself Data's grandfather. Knowing his end is near, he transfers all of his knowledge and intellect into Data. As a result, Data begins to act irrationally, becoming a cause of concern to Picard and others.
