Storyline

Riker is gravely affected by a local's death on a covert mission on Telonus 4, where civil strife has created total mayhem and endangers Federation colonists. From then on, he has a frustrating series of conflicting sensations, unable to tell whether his mind is running wild aboard the Enterprise getting into a crazy character in a play, or undergoing reflexion therapy, a voluntary alternative to irreparable surgical synaptic reconstruction, in a Telosian mental ward...

Goofs

It is never properly explained why Riker of all people has been chosen to go on that undercover mission. Neither is he known for his expertise in that kind of "jobs", nor does he seem too familiar with the environment and the circumstances on the planet (which is why he has to be briefed about those things first). A more logical choice, for instance, would have been Worf - who appeared a lot more knowledgeable about Tilonian culture and the planet's terrain anyway - or any other specially trained security officer. Of course, the actual reason for Riker's use on this mission is to set up the story. See more »

This episode was just stupid
24 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I love the Star Trek universe and TNG quite a lot and while I like Riker's character for the most part this episode just seemed pointless and idiotic. He's seemingly abducted by some race, and manipulated on X amount of levels for seemingly some amount of information though we never really see what that is. the whole premise of this episode seems to be mystery without any resolve and for that I give no kudos.

Hell anyone can build a mystery from anything, but in this world to do it with some incidental race for some unknowable reason and to leave you hanging with really no resolution or no real conclusion whatsoever is just an utter let down.

What were they thinking... No points here
