Review

Series : The Next Generation Rating : 0
Disc No : 6.1 Episode : 128
First Aired : 5 Oct 1992 Stardate : 46071.6
Director : Winrich Kolbe Year : 2369
Writers : Frank Abatemarco Season : 6
Guest Cast :
Charles Lucia as Ambassador Ves Alkar
George D. Wallace as Admiral Simon
J. P. Hubbell as Ensign
Lucy Boryer as Ensign Janeway
Patti Yasutake as Nurse Alyssa Ogawa
Rick Scarry as Jarth
Stephanie Erb as Liva
Susan French as Sev Maylor
Tracee Lee Cocco as Ensign Jae
Moral :
Diplomatic immunity : Not always a good thing.
Toxic waist dump : Nothing is all bad?
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.
