Goofs

Picard says that Lwaxana Troi's journal entries were deleted almost 30 years ago. However, the stardate 30620.1, on which the journal was started, suggests rather that this happened less than 17 years ago. See more »

Just a bad episode.
28 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the worst episodes for Star Trek the Next Generation. This episode set a new low for bad makeup effects for aliens. The obviously plastic brain like bulges over each ear of the aliens looked ridiculous. I'm guessing they must have used up most of their seasons budget on previous episodes. The shows budget limitations forced all or most of the aliens to a bi-pedal humanoid form; and that left them with a limited number of things they could do to try to make for different species. Add that to this over wrought cheesy story and that's what brought me to the lowest review I've given to a Star Trek TNG episode. I'm not clear on why the Lwaxana Troi is such a popular character. Majel Barrett always over acted this already over written characters. All the Star Trek fans just fall in line because of her ties to Rodenberry and the original show. All the episodes involving her and man Homm seemed silly and tediously boring.
