I cannot believe that I know this.

Scotty told Geordi to pad his repair estimate times so when the  
device-that-goes-phht-this-week came on line in time for the big  
finish, he'd look like a good engineer.

Saving grace - while I remember the episode, I do NOT recall the  
episode title, air dates, or much of the plot line.  I refuse to try  
and recover the memory.

Sending to Geeks - unless someone can tie in Scotty, Geordi or Star  
Trek to Rescue computers . . .
