Review

Series : The Next Generation Rating : 4
Disc No : 4.2 Episode : 79
First Aired : 29 Oct 1990 Stardate : 44215.2
Director : Robert Scheerer Year : 2367
Writers : Joe Menosky Season : 4
Guest Cast :
Beth Toussaint as Ishara Yar
Christopher Michael as Man #1
Colm Meaney as Miles Edward O'Brien
Don Mirault as Hayne
Vladimir Velasco as Tan Tsu
Moral :
Trust : Beware Greeks bearing gifts
YATI : When the Enterprise crew first beam down, Worf worries about Crusher's safety and Riker counters that the hostages may need instant medical attention. So when they actually get around to rescuing the hostages near the end of the episode, why does Crusher stay behind on the ship?
Factoid : The underground Turkana colony is actually a redress of the Borg ship sets used in Best of Both worlds. Depending on whether you count "Encounter at Farpoint" as one or two episodes, this or "Reunion" would be episode 80 - an important number because it marks the point at which the TNG episode count exceeded that of TOS.
Quote : "Without trust there's no friendship, no closeness, none of the emotional bonds that make us who we are." - Riker to Data

Plotline

The Enterprise must rescue some hostages from Turkana IV, birthplace of Tasha Yar. But help is on hand from an unexpected source.
