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 garykmcd

In Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Big Goodbye, Picard coughed immediately after lighting a cigarette. A normal reaction for a non-smoker. This time he puffs away without any problem. This may merely be an indication that, after playing Dixon Hill in several (not shown) adventures, Picard has either gotten used to smoking, or at least learned how to puff a cigarette without inhaling the smoke, thus avoiding the coughing.

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, Jean-Luc! What naughty thoughts! But how wonderful you still think of me like that.

Welcome back Lwaxana
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:45 - "Manhunt" (Stardate: 42859.2) - this is the 19th episode to air in the second season of The Next Generation. Welcome back Lwaxana Troi (played by the ever delightful Majel Barrett). There are many agains in this episode. Again, Lwaxana (in her first appearance since the 1st season) asks Captain Picard to carry her very heavy luggage - but this time it's Riker who carries. Again, her assistant Carel Struycken as the very funny Mr. Homn is with her - and yet again he drinks alcohol like it's water. And again, while Picard and Lwaxana eat dinner, Mr. Homn rings every time Lwaxana eats! However, Lwaxana has another trick up her sleeve - she's on "the Phase" - aka quadrupling her sex drive (or more!) . . . and guess who she's out for? Watch this funny episode.

Trivia: Dixon Hill makes his second appearance in the series. AND, not only does Majel Barrett make an appearance as Lwaxana Troi, but also as the computer voice - whom she talks to "herself" when Lwaxana asks the computer how to get to Holodeck 3!
