Storyline

Two women arrive on the station. One is a familiar face. Lwaxana Troi comes to visit Odo and announces she is pregnant. She asks for Odo's help. Her husband Jeyal is Tavnian and in Tavnian tradition the sexes grow up apart. She would have to abandon her baby. Odo is reluctant at first, but surprisingly his relationship with Lwaxana blossoms after she shows a lot of interest in shapeshifting. Then Jeyal arrives on the station. The other woman, Onaya, is rather mysterious. She tells she has a weakness for artists and seems very interested in Jake's writing capabilities. She flatters him and offers him to show exercises and techniques. Jake gladly agrees and even skips a trip to the Bajoran outback with his father for a meeting. But Onaya's method seems quite intrusive. She wants something from Jake. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

To My Two Least Favorite Characters....
24 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is such a dumb episode, I don't know where to begin. First of all Lwaxana Troi shows up and she is pregnant, fleeing from her jerk husband, who, like Rumplestiltskin, is there for her soon to be born son. Then Jake (whom we've been seeing way too much of) hooks up with a woman who invades his brain and gets him to write. But the solution for Lwaxana is beyond belief. Forget this one.
