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

Trivia

Even though Majel Barrett is known as the computer voice of Star Trek (1966) and Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), she made her first appearance on this episode as the flamboyant Lwaxanna Troi a full year before she was credited as the voice of the computer. See more »

Goofs

When Lwaxana Troi transports to the Enterprise, the transporter chief has his arms folded behind his back, but the transporter sound and actual transport happen without his ever touching anything. See more »

The Overbearing Mother
27 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know one needs to inject the human element into these episodes. The characters have families somewhere. Deanna Troi is no exception. Being a Betazoid and having the ability to sense emotions and in some cases, read minds, she is a valuable member of the crew. She is not a full Betazoid (sort of like Mr. Spock's half-Vulcan). When Lwaxana, Deanna's mother, shows up (a great Scrabble word) she is a tiresome, overbearing woman. Deanna, as part of a culture that endorses it, has an arranged marriage and her mother is here with her fiancé to make sure everything goes as it should. When he sees his "beloved" he is stunned. He has been dreaming of someone else. Now the more interesting story. A doomed group of Terrelians is wandering the galaxy, trying to find safe haven (at Haven, of course). They are infected and can't be allowed to land where there is habitation. Included among the crew is the person Troi's betrothed has been having dreams about (pardon my preposition). The solution to this tale is interesting. While many find Lwaxana a refreshing change, I found her an intergalactic stereotypical Jewish mother. Of course, we haven't seen the last of her.
