Later, I actually used this material in a spec TNG script called ''Tides'' which both got me into the AFI as well as pitches at various TNG-era shows.
Now that's the good stuff. I have often used my dreams as a source of new ideas. I too dream in color and feel the heat and texture, never really thought much about it. I thought everybody did.
