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

Picard says there's been no Klingon raid on the Federation in seven years. This was added to show that the Federation-Klingon alliance is still an uneasy one. See more »

Goofs

Consistently throughout the shows 7 seasons, when approaching abandoned ships or stations, one of the first things the Enterprise crew does (even before boarding them) is scan them for life signs. They appear not to have done this in this episode, since when they hear (what Geordi thinks is) a loose panel, there is no urgency to their finding the cause of the noise that they would have shown if they had scanned for life signs and found one still aboard the station.

Quotes

[La Forge has questioned Aquiel about her insubordinate conduct toward Lt. Rocha, who is presumed killed]
Lt. Aquiel Uhnari: Keith Rocha was obnoxious from the minute he reported to duty. He treated me as though I was beneath contempt. I felt like I had to battle him, to hold my own. But I didn't want to see him dead.

Who Was That Woman?
25 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whenever Geordi LaForge gets his libido going, he makes bad choices. In this case an investigation of a ship reveals the remains of a crew member. It is first thought to be an attractive young woman. Geordi who seems to fall in love with spectres or hologram images, once again falls for a woman who may well be dead (this happens when he explore her video logs). She appears to be a high strung, whiney woman, but she is attractive. Geordi's loneliness and failure with women is well documented and here, again, he puts his heart on his sleeve. Later this woman is found by the Klingons (who were initially blamed) flying on a space shuttle. She takes refuge on the Enterprise and starts an affair with Geordi. Because she has been caught in lies, it is natural that she be put under observation. LaForge is there for her, of course. Sometimes he can be such a little boy. It isn't that he is wrong but that he becomes a loose cannon, fortunate not to completely upset the apple cart. I just couldn't get into this episode.
