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... Written by KGF Vissers

Ha!
17 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For some inexplicable reason, DaiMon Tog has taken a shine to Lwaxana Troi. He's not only interested in her because she is a Betazoid and thus, can read people's thoughts during business transactions but because he likes her spirit. She doesn't take crap off anyone..and Tog likes that! However, when this troll-like Ferengi makes a pass at her, she quickly rebuffs him. So, he does what any normal Ferengi would do- -he kidnaps her! At the same time, he also kidnaps Deanna and Riker! How are they to get away from this freaky guy? Well, see the show--and be prepared to laugh, as the ending involving Picard negotiating with Tog is hilarious--and this alone is reason to make this a must-see. Funny and inconsequential but very good at the same time.
