It only improves near the end...and then it really pulls at your heart.
2 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Dark Page" is a very odd episode. I really cared very little for it but by the end, I found myself being sucked into the show in its very moving finale.

The Enterprise has some unusual visitors aboard. The Cairn are a race of folks who can read minds and aren't used to spoken language. Because of her ability as an empath, Lwaxana Troi has been selected to act as intermediaries with the Cairn. However, the more she works with them, the more emotionally taxing it all becomes. Eventually, she falls into a near-death coma. How does the Cairn's visit relate to all this?!

I guess the bottom line is that although the episode is pretty slow, the solution to Lwaxana's problems is unusual and satisfying--though a bit draining as well. Plus, it does give you a chance to see a young Kirsten Dunst before she achieved stardom in "Interview With a Vampire" and other film projects.
