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...

Trivia

Jonathan Frakes remarked: "Frame of Mind was really dark. It was a terrifying show and creepy to do. It was as big a show as any I've had to carry." See more »

Goofs

Data tells Riker that he gave a very realistic performance of "multi-infarct dementia." But his character's behaviour has more in common with schizophrenia. See more »

Quotes

[final scene of the play 'Frame of Mind', with Riker as the patient and Data as the doctor]
Lt. Commander Data: Perhaps we should continue this discussion next week.
Commander William T. Riker: No. I wanna talk about this now!
Lt. Commander Data: You're starting to sound angry again. Maybe you need another treatment.
Commander William T. Riker: What I need is to get out of this cell! I've been locked up in here for days. You've controlled my every move, you told me what to eat, what to think, what to say. And when I show a glimmer of independent thought, you strap me down, inject me with ...

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
