Storyline

Dr. Bashir has to take care of a delegation of ambassadors visiting Deep Space Nine to take a look at the wormhole. In Quark's bar, an ambassador from Betazed, Lwaxana Troi, gets robbed of her brooch. Odo is able to find the culprit and suddenly Troi is very interested in him, romantically. He doesn't like it. Meanwhile, O'Brien is totally frustrated with the Cardassian computer. It doesn't do the job right and gives opinions on every one of his commands. He suggests installing a new one from scratch. Then an unidentified object appears from the gamma quadrant through the wormhole. It looks like a probe, but has a very sophisticated computer. After downloading information from it, O'Brien notices the station's computer seems to be working better. Then several malfunctions appear, leaving Odo and Lwaxana Troi trapped in a turbolift.

Trivia

A running gag concerning Lwaxana Troi's love interests recurs here. In one scene, Odo is anxiously looking around as he exits a turbolift, fearing running into her (which he does). Jean-Luc Picard acted similarly on the Enterprise when she was on board at one time (TNG: "Half a Life"). See more »

Goofs

Odo reports to Ops that he and Lwaxana Troi are trapped in turbolift 7. Later on, Sisko reports in the station log that they are trapped in turbolift 4. See more »

Quotes

Odo: You're Betazoid?
Lwaxana Troi: Of course.
Odo: Telepathic?
Lwaxana Troi: Yes.
Odo: And you sense no guilt anywhere in this room?
[Lwaxana Troi sighs and "scans" the room with her mind, then eyes Quark suspiciously]
Lwaxana Troi: No. But Betazoids cannot read Ferengis.
Odo: Quark has plenty of reason to feel guilty, but he usually doesn't have to resort to petty theft to fleece his clients.
Quark: Thank you.

'Humanizing' Lwaxana Troi.
15 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with some extremely annoying ambassadors arriving at the station. They are so annoying that the Commander assigns Dr. Bashir to escort them--a task he clearly hates! Among the ambassadors is Lwaxana Troi and this time she has her horny sights set on Odo! She is determined to woo him and they end up spending far more time together than Odo had anticipated--all due to a weird computer virus-like program.

Strictly speaking, Lwaxana Troi is not a human. However, this episode is among her very best as it softens the character and makes her less an obvious comic foil. Instead, she's very sensitive, decent and likable--something she seldom was in her other appearances up until "The Forsaken". This depth is the reason I rated this particular episode so highly---it's well worth seeing and those very familiar with Troi should particularly enjoy this one.
