Lol, the episdoe you are talking about is "The Naked Time" from the first season of TOS. In TNG's first season it had an episode called "The Naked Now" in which a similar virus ravages the Enterprise, but is stronger. It is the only episode of TNG to reference Kirk, and the old Enterprise.
Yea I remember they had to pull up the old records to relate to the virus and how it worked.
