It's the time of the The Bajoran Gratitude Festival and presider Kira is making preparations. She's expecting Vedek Bareil and chief O'Brien is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his wife and daughter. Odo is less happy. He had hoped to spend the festival with Kira, Jake is experiencing love sickness. His girlfriend Mardah left for an university 300 light years away. When Bareil and O'Brien's family arrive, the Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi is also in their shuttle. She has one goal: start a romantic relationship with Odo. When the festival starts some more unusual attractions pop up; Jake suddenly falls in love with Kira and Bareil abandons Kira to pursue Dax. Meanwhile O'Brien's love life isn't too well. The two days he has to spent with Keiko start off on the wrong foot.

This is one of director of photography Jonathan West
's favorite episodes due to the fact that director Avery Brooks

Lwaxana Troi is able to affect Quark telepathically, but it has been established in Star Trek canon that Betazoids cannot telepathically read or affect Ferengi due to the Ferengi's quad-lobed brain structure. See more
