I've never actually seen this episode. I was rather young when the series started, and since then I've consistently missed every re-run. Well, at least there's something to watch out for next time...
The early seasons of Next Gen are remarkably dated by today's standards - the computer science, especially. The ship's computer taking literally hours to search for a few thousand pieces of information, or Data's positronic brain having a capacity of 88 petabytes, about 11(?) times the size of all of Google's servers. Both of these details, and many more, were later updated in grotesque canon violations - er, common-sense revisions - that downplayed the earlier absurdity.
