It's right around this moment, according to historical data and polling research, that the Kill Wesley movement got its first member.

One of Geordi's first stops is to visit his good pal Wesley Crusher, who shows off one of his science projects (a mini tractor beam,) and one of his toys, a device that lets Wesley recreate speech from anyone on the ship.
