I'm looking for an episode from Star Trek TNG where the crew is being tested by aliens. The only part I remember is near the end where Picard traps one on the bridge in a force field and says "we know about you now".

    General reference: Googling for "star trek tng trap bridge force field know" brings up en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… as hit #3. Nov 6, 2012 at 12:44

    @DVK Google is not general reference, and doing similar searches in Wikipedia doesn't find the episode

    @Beofett That was back when General Reference was first created on the SE sites that have it. We've since learned on SciFi.SE that Google cannot be General Reference for the topics on here largely because Google filters people's results based on their past searches. Things like this that are easily googleable for me may not be easily googleable for others.

    @Beofett Regardless, even "do a google search" isn't a single link to a standard reference; an expected Wikipedia or IMDB page is. Those are the only two accepted General Reference sites on SciFi.SE - because you can give a single link that everyone can view.

    @Izkata - Sorry. That's completely wrong on a technical level. I just re-did a search on a fresh Incognito Chrome window, with no Google user logged in. SAME results. And the same thing happend in a privacy-on Tor window. Neither could POSSIBLY be tailored to me (they are designed to be fully anonymous and non-identifyable) Nov 6, 2012 at 15:51
