Menage a Troi
<b>Plot Summary:</b> After a trade conference on Betazed, Lwaxana Troi is approached by a Ferengi named Tog who is interested both in her skills as a mediator and her charms as a mate. Lwaxana rebuffs him and goes home to Betazed, where Deanna is visiting with Riker. In the midst of a picnic, Tog abducts both both Troi women and Riker, taking them onto a vessel where Ferengi doctor Farek plans to probe Lwaxana's mind to study Betazoid telepathy. While Riker distracts his guard with a chess match and asks Deanna if she can summon her mother telepathically to obtain an access code to the ship's communications array, Lwaxana attempts to seduce Tog. Farek walks in just as Tog is giving her the code and begins experimenting on Lwaxana. Meanwhile, Betazed contacts the Enterprise with news of the abduction, interrupting Picard's planned rendezvous with the Bradbury to ferry Wesley Crusher to Starfleet for his entrance exams. Wesley figures out that Riker has hidden a signal in the Ferengi interference blocking the ship's scans of local transmissions. When the Enterprise catches up with the Ferengi, Lwaxana convinces Tog that Riker and Deanna will be of no use to him and promises to work for him if he frees the Starfleet officers. To intimidate Tog into releasing Lwaxana as well, Picard pretends to be a furious jealous lover. Once Lwaxana is safely aboard the Enterprise, Picard promotes Wesley to Ensign, saying that he can complete his training on the Enterprise.<p><p><HR ALIGN="CENTER" SIZE="1" WIDTH="45\%" COLOR="#007BB5"><p>To read the full reviews, please click <A HREF="">here</A>.<center></center>

It's a fun episode. It's not meant to be taken so seriously. Michelle at least admits to disliking Ferengi episodes as a rule, so she's prejudiced to make any kind of objective judgement about this episode. Sure, it could have been a holodeck episode...but it works well within the category of 'Trek Light Comedy', the same as episodes like Deja Q and Hollow Pursuits.

One thing I will agree on: Picard's 'mangling of Shakespeare' scene is brilliant!

The only good thing about this episode was that Wesley finally got his Ensign uniform so he wouldn't look out of place in The Best of Both Worlds episodes.:shifty:

Re: Menage a Troi
I have a real fondness for this episode and the biggest reason is Picard's poetry festival at the end. I usually watch the whole episode, which is good fun if you like or don't mind Ferengis, and then put the poetry bits on repeat. Even after way too many viewings, I still laugh myself silly. Only DejaQ makes me ROTFL more.
