Storyline

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...

Trivia

First Star Trek appearance of Ethan Phillips who played the Ferengi Dr. Farek in this episode. Phillips would go on to play the Talaxian morale officer Neelix on Star Trek: Voyager (1995). He would also don the Ferengi makeup two more times: Star Trek: Voyager: False Profits (1996) and Star Trek: Enterprise: Acquisition (2002). See more »

Goofs

In the opening gathering in Ten Forward, an Antican and a Selae are shown in the background, and they are not exhibiting any signs of hostility. It is highly unlikely that the two races would have resolved their numerous differences in the two years since Star Trek: The Next Generation: Lonely Among Us, when they refused to be on the same deck as each other, let alone the same room.

Some Choice Moments Make It OK
19 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While at a meeting on Betazed, a Ferengi commander takes a shine to Lwaxana Troi. Without going into details, Deanna, Riker, and Mom end up kidnapped on a Ferengi cruiser. The Ferengi want her for her charms, but mostly to give them an advantage in their negotiations. The fun is in the efforts to outsmart the exo-eared aliens. Playing on their greed and their sensualities things come to a nice turn. My favorite scene is when Jean-Luc, in order to put a stop to Lwaxana's betrothal, begins to spout poetry, along with a threat of destroying the Ferengi ship and everyone on it. Normally I don't care much for Troi's mother, but she is actually good in this.
