Storyline

Bringing supplies to a Federation subspace communications relay station near the Klingon border, the Enterprise finds it deserted by shuttle, only a dog remains. There is a residue Dr. Crusher guesses to be the remains of Lt. Aquiel Uhnari, the dog's owner, whose personal logs reveal to Geordi her childhood paranoia and theory the local Klingon commander made frequent visits to abuse her, while she also feared her only male colleague. When Picard hints at his influence with the Klingon leader since he arbitrated his succession, the planet governor Torak accepts to help himself - and produces Aquiel, alive - or not, and what about the DNA traces Worf found of one single Klingon? Dr. Crusher continues the DNA identification with spooky results... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

With the O'Briens' departure to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) had lost its only married couple. This episode was intended to show that marriage and serious relationships continued into the 24th Century. In Season 7, Nurse Ogawa and her husband started a family, so the idea was obviously pursued. See more »

Quotes

[in a personal letter to her sister, Aquiel is talking about the threat from a Klingon]
Lt. Aquiel Uhnari: I don't... think there'll be any trouble. It just... brings up those feelings of... panic, of wanting to run, wanting to get away from danger. Shianna, I couldn't say this to anyone but you. But the panic... It's the same thing I used to feel whenever Father got angry. When I knew he was going to punish me. Only now, I'm out here in space - and there's nowhere to run.

Hitchcock murder mystery
20 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a well written and original TNG episode. Don't understand why it receives low rating on IMDb but it rings of Hithcock's TV show. A must see episode for Trekkies and Hitchcock fans. The plot is thick and it leaves the viewer guessing right up until the end. The suspense is masterfully shot by the director. It is an all around winner.

Also its nice to see Klingon's written into an episode that isn't about the empire or war.

I think if people look at this episode in that light then it is a justifiable 8 out of 10. It definitely does not deserve the 5.9 it has received so far.
