Season 3 Episode 8
Original airdate: November 11, 1989
While the Enterprise hosts negotiations for control of a stable wormhole, Troi forms a personal relationship with an opposing negotiator.
My Brief Review
I was prepared to turn this episode off 10 seconds into the cold open. Much to my surprise, I actually enjoyed the episode, despite its focus both on Deanna Troi’s love life and a particularly annoying trio of Ferengi. It helped that 2/3 of that trio ended up trapped in the Delta Quadrant on the other side of an unstable wormhole, and that Troi recognized what a smarmy sleaze ball the guy was and sent him packing.
The looks on the Ferengi’s faces when they realize the wormhole has closed, leaving them trapped…
I’m at a bit of a loss on this one… but checking IMDb I see once again backflip master Crewman Martinez made an uncredited appearance. I think he may have been seen momentarily in sickbay, helping Dr. Crusher attend to the poisoned Federation negotiator, Mr. Mendoza.
