Did You Know?


Majel Barrett's last appearance on the show as Lwaxana Troi. She would make two further appearances in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), and still continue to do the voice of the Enterprise computer. See more »


When Picard is reviewing Lwaxana's journal and reveals that "there's a seven-year gap," the gap has barely begun to become evident on screen. As the dialog between Picard and Troi progresses, Picard continues to scroll through a list of deleted entries. I.e. he calculates the length of the gap well before he reaches the last deleted entry.

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.
