Storyline

It's the time of the The Bajoran Gratitude Festival and presider Kira is making preparations. She's expecting Vedek Bareil and chief O'Brien is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his wife and daughter. Odo is less happy. He had hoped to spend the festival with Kira, Jake is experiencing love sickness. His girlfriend Mardah left for an university 300 light years away. When Bareil and O'Brien's family arrive, the Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi is also in their shuttle. She has one goal: start a romantic relationship with Odo. When the festival starts some more unusual attractions pop up; Jake suddenly falls in love with Kira and Bareil abandons Kira to pursue Dax. Meanwhile O'Brien's love life isn't too well. The two days he has to spent with Keiko start off on the wrong foot. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The Bajoran Gratitude Festival symbol seen on a banner and small pennants on the Promenade bears a striking resemblance to the logos of Tantalus V and Elba II, minus the dove. See more »

Goofs

Lwaxana Troi is able to affect Quark telepathically, but it has been established in Star Trek canon that Betazoids cannot telepathically read or affect Ferengi due to the Ferengi's quad-lobed brain structure. See more »

Midsummer's Night Star Trek
1 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one's a little hard to watch at first, but if you yield to the premise, as I finally did after fifteen minutes of being irritated, you might find it enjoyable. Otherwise, it's a pretty far departure from the show's norm. The story is about a big festival day with a lot of lovers reuniting. But for some funny reason, love runs amuck, and many unusual crushes and flirtations appear. I chose to watch this episode for Majel Barrett, who proves she is still one of the best TV actresses from 1960's, if you like that exaggerated style. Majel's character (Counselor Troi's vampy mother) has a romantic fixation on Oto. Many other characters get fixations, too, and things get topsy-turvy as love goes out in all directions. Love, love, love—too much love, and none of it quite right. There are a lot of fun twists in this Midsummer's Night Star Trek, and some viewers will like it while others will hate it. I will say this, Nana Visitor never looked prettier.
