What gets me about this ep is that it took so damn long for Troi to come clean to the Enterprise crew about her new boyfriend's telepathic abilities. I mean, hello...remember your duty as a Starfleet officer? wtf...
Not really, she came clean once he overstepped the ethical line. It's hardly her job to scan everyone onboard and tell the others whether they're telepathic or not. Perhaps if Ral was actually able to read thoughts she would've, but he was a weaker empath than her. Besides, there's nothing inherently wrong with having an empathic negotiator, it only becomes a problem when said negotiator plays dirty
