A page from Lwaxana's past.
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:159 - "Dark Page" (Stardate: 47254.1) - this is the 7th episode of the 7th and last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

This episode deals Lwaxana Troi coming onboard the Enterprise to act as interpretor to a new telepathic species, the Cairn, who has no concept of a spoken language. However, one of the delegate's little girl, Hedril (played by a very young Kirsten Dunst) makes Lwaxana very sad. Soon, she falls unconscious, having retreated into her mind. Troi tries to go into her mother's mind to find out what's happening - it has to do with her past and it all has everything to do with Hedril.

Definitely the saddest of the Lwaxana episodes, where she is usually very comedic, but it's nice to see this side of Lwaxana.

Trivia note: Worf mentions he does not like telepaths. We see the arboretum again too. We see Troi's father too. Data also refers to his dream analysis (from "Birthright" and "Phantasms"). Mr. Homn is also mentioned (though doesn't appear in this episode).
