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 Betazoid, 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...

Some Choice Moments Make It OK
19 August 2014 | by HitchcocSee 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.
