The Enterprise is transporting delegates to a diplomatic conference dealing with Federation membership. Counselor Troi is more than just a bit embarrassed when her mother Lwaxanna, as outrageous as ever, arrives on board the Enterprise. She is the official Ambassador from Betazed but that isn't the only reason she is there. She is going through 'The Phase', a time in her life when her sexual drive increases fourfold. She's clearly got her eyes on the Captain who decides to take refuge on the holodeck as private detective Dixon Hill. With him away, she announces that Commander Riker is her next target and he soon joins the Captain on the holodeck. She tracks them down but her sudden interest in a holodeck character serves to rescue the Captain and his First Officer. Written by
