  • Troi's loss doesn't make much of a story....

    7.0
    .... Although Marina Sirtis was perfectly cast as Counselor Deana Troi and is a talented character actor overall, the Troi-centered episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" usually fall flat. "The Loss" is certainly one of the better Troi-centered TNG episodes (unlike "Haven" or "The Child") but is generally lackluster. Sirtis is given a number of opportunities to shine with some very emotionally heavy moments and does not exactly blow her chances; however, the notion of Troi losing her empathic abilities does not play out very well. The episode is neither compelling nor thrilling, with the B-story regarding two-dimensional beings not making much sense even for Star Trek, and ends up one of the lesser episodes of the fourth season.
