Nibor (as Peter Slutsker)
Rudolph Willrich ...


At the closing reception of a biennial trade conference, for the first time attended by the Ferengi race, Counselor Deanna Troi's mother, a full-blood Betazoi, scorns the advances of a Ferengi. When mother, daughter and Commander William T. Riker take shore-leave during a routine mapping voyage, he seizes his chance to kidnap them, and is found to have a practical motive beyond sexual attraction. Meanwhile young Wesley Crusher passes his tests for promotion to field ensign, but only then realizes he's rather likely to be assigned to another starship for further training...

You're pulling' my leg!!
18 March 2011 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

Allah help us, they did it, they actually did it. They pulled off the perfect episode that could only have been conceived in the evilest laboratory of jaw-dropping perversity, combining the three most flaccid elements in TREK history: Lwaxana, the Ferengi, and Neelix. Breaking the laws of both time and decency, they got pre-Neelix Ethan Philips to play a Ferengi doctor torturing the kidnapped Lwaxana. What, you think i could make this up?? In the midst of this tragedy of, um, Shakespearean proportions, there's a thread of beauty...Wesley gives up his spot at the Academy to run back and save the day. Required to stay onboard one more year, he's field-promoted to full ensign. I raised my hand in solidarity a full minute. You've come a long way from the rainbow suit, Wes.
