Bland and forgettable episode, except for when Wesley was looking for advice. Smash cut to Worf screaming and the "flirting" scene between Riker and Guinan were great.
"Shut up, kid......tell me more about my eyes."
Episodes where Wesley is either told to shut up or reprimanded gets a bonus 1/10 to its final score. Datalore got 2 bonus points.
Agreed. I don't particularly watch Star Trek for love interest stories. There are so many other shows that do that.
TOS has some excellent love stories: Kirk and Edith Keeler, Kirk and Miramanee, and Spock and Leila. One would need a heart of stone not to be touched by these stories. It's just that later Trek hasn't done it very well.
