The Enterprise is on a diplomatic mission to open relations the the Ilarians. While two of their ambassador's have joined him on the ship, Captain Picard is to travel by shuttle craft their home world. Counselor Troi takes charge of Ambassador Loquel, who takes delight in the many pleasures, especially chocolate, which can be found on board the ship. Lt. Worf is assigned to Ambassador Byleth whose gruff and demanding behavior drives the Klingon to the edge of losing his temper. Picard doesn't quite make it to the Ilarian home world as the malfunctioning shuttle craft is forced to land on a nearby planet.

So Many Characters Seem Able to Perform Magic
7 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three "Larians" are visiting the Enterprise on a diplomatic mission. Each has an interesting being about him. One is gregarious, attracted to Troi and food. He gorges himself and acts as a glutton for pleasure. The second is a hostile, confrontational bully, who chooses Worf to attend to him and then abuses his powers (obviously, Worf can do nothing because these are their guests). The third goes on a mission with Picard on a shuttlecraft. He barely speaks to Picard, seeming to be quite annoyed at being with him. A malfunction in the shuttlecraft sends them to a planet that has intense storms. They are trapped and Picard, leaving his "friend" behind (he was badly injured in the crash) tries a bit of reconnaissance but is hit by a bolt from the sky. He is rescued by an attractive young woman who takes him with her to her hiding place. She nurses him, but keeps him locked up. I think that if there is a bit of a weakness in the verisimilitude in this series, it has to do with shape changing and out and out magical abilities of the aliens. I will not spoil anything, but even in science fiction, there are some things that are far fetched. It's a fun episode if one doesn't think too much.
