    This episode centers around Tam Elbrun, a Betazoid played by guest star Harry Groener. It tosses out a lot of elements in the early goings (Tam's backstory, a new life form, the Romulans) creating an exciting buildup, but the latter half is predictable and somewhat deus ex machina. Groener does his best to create an interesting character, and it's fun to see the crew of the Enterprise staying true to their purpose and seeking out new life, but overall the episode is just middle of the pack for the series.
