  • A super soldier who escapes from prison threatens a planet's entry to the Federation.


    This allegory for the treatment of returning U.S. Vietnam veterans puts the spotlight on Counselor Troi and the title character - whose name is Danar (and who is played by Jeff McCarthy). The two don't have much of a chemistry together, but the cat and mouse games between Danar (playing a "Rambo" like character) and the Enterprise crew are clever and fun to watch play out. The remainder of the episode is so-so, although Patrick Stewart and guest star James Cromwell are great together.
