Ok I really liked this episode even though I never liked Riker. I kinda saw it as what would happen if a group like the federation tried to meake first contact with us as we are now.
I loved the scene with the woman who wanted to have Riker's baby. And the end where the scientist woman decided to stay with the enterprise knowing that she wouldn't be able to do her work on her own planet.
In the end I liked this episode. It has been awhile since I've seen it so my recap is kinda vague but there were many great scenes.
