Storyline

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

Goofs

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.

No...NOT Dixon Hill!
14 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Manhunt" is obviously intended as a funny episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation". Because of this, its mood is very light and not much of importance occurs in this one. Soon after some weird, fishlike zombie delegates arrive aboard, the Enterprise is overtaken by a shuttlecraft. Its passenger is the obnoxious Lawaxana Troi and she has apparently been appointed an ambassador as well--and wants to be transported by the Enterprise to some conference. However, her real reason for being there is that she's incredibly horny--the result of some weird Betazoid mid-life crisis where their women become sex machines--and this machine is running at 10,000 rpms/minute! The worst part is that she insists that Picard is in love with her--when he clearly isn't. So, he runs and hides inside the holodeck--posing as his pulp novel hero, Dixon Hill. Unfortunately for the episode, Picard goes into the holodeck and poses as Dixon Hill!!! While I could enjoy Lwaxana's crazy shenanigans, the holodeck stuff is, as usual, completely out of place and irrelevant to the show. Overall, not a particularly good episode and one that should have been better. But, at least Patrick Stewart looked great in a fedora!
