Storyline

Counselor Deanna Troi is startled to find herself aboard a Romulan ship, where Subcommander N'vek admits he drugged and surgically altered her while attending a conference to have her play the part of Major Raqal of the feared imperial intelligence (political police) in order to overrule the captain Commander Toreth, who nearly succeeds in bluffing the 'novice agent' rather then just obey and carry a mysterious cargo, which N'vek next shows to Troi: it's a Romulan vice-proconsul with two aids in stasis, members of Spock's underground on Romulus, intended to become the haven for many other sympathizers once set up safely in Federation space. At the rendez-vous with a Corvallen freighter which was to take the cargo, Troi's empathic feeling the captain is unreliable makes N'vek destroy that ship, 18 casualties.

Superb Episode
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just rewatched this episode after not having seen it for many, many years. It still holds up brilliantly. It is one of the best episodes of the entire series, and by far the best Troi episode. Carolyn Seymore is wonderful as the Romulan commander, to the point that one regrets that the character never reappeared in another episode. The whole thing is deliciously edge-of-your-seat suspenseful, and I'm not going to give away one iota of it, for anyone who hasn't seen it.

I was astonished to find only one review of it here; I had expected that surely many people would want to weigh in on this one. It easily makes my Next Generation top-10 list.
