Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread
Yeah, the "alien rape" thing is glossed over and all-but ignored in the episode. It'd be one thing if Troi was impregnated without any awareness of what happened but she obviously had a reaction to the entity in her bed and knew there was a "presence" in her room. Now, it obviously wasn't a violent, horrible, rape with her screaming and crying in fear so maybe "rape" is a strong word but something was pushed upon her by a foreign entity without her willingness. It should have been addressed better.
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
