Storyline

The Enterprise travels to the planet Haven in the hope of providing the crew with some much deserved shore leave. On arrival however there is a message for Counselor Troi - her fiancé and his parents are waiting for them and would like to proceed with the wedding. Troi is genuinely shocked - as is Riker - but the engagement is genuine having been arranged by the parents when Troi and her intended, Wyatt Miller, were just children. Also waiting for her is her mother, Lwaxana Troi, a larger than life personality who dominates any room just by her presence. For Troi and Wyatt, there seems to be little time to get to know one another but there is another problem: she's not who he was expecting to see. Since early childhood, he has dreamed of a beautiful blond woman and just assumed it was Troi. When it turns out to be someone else, neither are sure what to do. Captain Picard soon has another situation to deal with however when a Tarellian vessel suddenly appears, obviously destined to ... Written by garykmcd

Our first and most memorable appearance of Lwaxana Troi.
10 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Counselor Troi's mother, Lwaxana (Majel Barrett) will become a funny recurring character on this show. Here, she makes her first appearance--and one of her most obnoxious and memorable ones. It seems that Deanna has been pledged to marry a human by their respective families and she is prepared to honor this. However, there are two huge problems--she really doesn't know her fiancé and Lwaxana seems to be trying her best to be obnoxious and unlikable towards everyone--particularly the groom's family. Again and again, she says and does things that right fully infuriate EVERYONE. It's all quite funny and makes this the first lighthearted episode of the series- -something sorely needed since the prior episodes were all so darn serious!

Interestingly, Deanna's spouse-to-be, turns out to be an amazingly nice and decent guy. Heck, I would have been happy to marry him--and I am a straight guy! But, somehow the wedding doesn't come off as planned. How and why, you'll just need to see for yourself.

All in all, this is one of the best episodes of the first series. Sure, the plot is lightweight--but the show really needed this. And, subsequent episodes with Lwaxana were a treat! Well worth seeing.
