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 »

A Sad Poignant Episode
9 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The final season of this series seems beset with the implications of telepathy and personal angst. The characters begin to reveal their inner selves more than at any other time. In this one Lwaxana Troi comes on board with representatives of a race, the Cairn, who communicate only through telepathy. Using technology, they are learning to speak, but it is a hard road to travel. From the beginning Mrs. Troi seems ill. She does her usual annoying judgmental stuff with Deanna (not being married and not getting any younger). She is subject to mood swings and anger. On board is a little Cairn girl played by Kirsten Dunst. She is a free spirit and embraced by the crew. One day, they are in a garden when this little girl falls into a pond. She jumps right out but Lwaxana collapses and the rest of the episode has to do with getting into her comatose subconscious. There is something there that is being repressed. The Cairn leader, who is attracted to Deanna and the father of the little girl, is used to send Deanna into Lwaxana's deep dream world. There is some sort of secret that must be rooted out. This is a really provocative episode, well acted and satisfying in its scope.
