YATI : Troi has stated several times that her empathic sense allows her to tell when a person is lying to her. So when Alkar asked her to participate in his little ceremony, why didn't she sense that there was something amiss?
Worst Moment : The idea that this guy can go around abusing people this way without interference is absurd. Alright he may be immune to prosecution because of diplomatic immunity, but it strains credibility that the crew can't do anything to stop an ongoing assault.
Body Count : Two; Alkar's first girlfriend and Alkar himself.
Factoid : This episode was originally scheduled to be the fourth of the season, but was moved back when "Relics" had to be moved because of James Doohan's schedule.
Quote : "You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose." - Picard to Alkar

Plotline

Troi is threatened by a visiting diplomat who wants to use her as the psychic version of a toxic waste dump.
