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...

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.

Has its moments, but you've gotta work for them.

"Menage a Troi"'s greatest offense is that (for the most part) it's just as much of a groaner as that wordplay in the title Lwaxana's back, she spars with Deanna about female responsibility, and that's before they're abducted (along with Riker) by a horndog Ferengi. Put simply, it's dull and the lighthearted stuff isn't funny.

. . . Until the last few minutes or so, wherein Picard summons his inner Shakespearean in a standoff with the Ferengi ship. This however is very funny because Patrick Stewart's going for broke. He completely livens up this sleepy episode. And it's no wonder that that image of him hamming it up has been co-opted into Internet meme infamy.
