Star Trek: The Next Generation Rewatch: "The Nth Degree"
Barclay is hit with a probe, talks grand unification theory with Albert Einstein, hits on Troi, takes over the ship's computer, and generally becomes a soooooooooooooooooooooooper genius, all to facilitate bringing the Enterprise to an alien who looks a lot like Danny Kaye. The TNG Rewatch takes it to "The Nth Degree."

An excerpt:
This is the second time a ship named Enterprise traveled to the center of the galaxy and met a big giant head that looks like an elderly white guy. It also happened in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Apparently earlier drafts of the script had the Cytherians being more menacing, but it was decided that it would make it too much like that film, and, to quote Ronald D. Moore, “The absolute last thing that we wanted to remind anyone of was Star Trek V.”
