But Seven of Five says otherwise, so I'll bow to his superior knowledge as he's definitively not a ladies' man.
I wouldn't call it superior knowledge. I wouldn't call anything from that period of my life superior anything. Luckily all of that is way in the past!
I liked Lwaxana Troi in this episode.
Along with Cost of Living and Dark Page on TNG, this was goood use of her, even if her schtick with Picard has been simply transferred to Odo. What's good is that she helps Odo when he's feeling vulnerable, by making herself vulnerable too. When is she ever like that? She's almost a real person!
The rest of the episode is more average tech plotting. Next episode!
