  • Goodbye, Mrs. Troi, see you on DS9

    This Deanna/Lwaxana Troi episode plays up the drama of a dark secret, and to the writers' credit, they come up with one that's powerful yet not contrived. But the story (which includes no bridge scenes) lacks the focus and creativity of "Phantasms" and comes off as a second-rate dream episode in its wake. (The episode might be better had the writers found a faster and more unusual way to get into the heart of the story.) That said, the climax is quite extraordinary (and heartbreaking) for the series and features great dramatic acting from Majel Barrett in her final appearance on the show.
