    As a kid I used to think the Lwaxana episodes were the dumbest things around. Now? Among my most favorite episodes. I will never tire of seeing Picard, the diplomat extraordinaire, being completely fucking lost for words. He had to beg Data to interrupt his dinner with her. Also the quoting of Shakespeare he has to do in order to save her from Daimon Tog? Dude spits The Bard for breakfast but he’s desperately searching in that scene and I love it so much.

    Considering I’m going to rewatch them anyway, I figured I’d add the links for anyone else who wanted to. Just so you don’t have to go searching.

      She even shows up on Babylon 5. She plays the prophetess wife of the previous Centauri emperor.

      I’m going through TNG for the first time, and I’m approaching it with the idea that you’ve got to take in everything on a first round, the good, the bad, and Lwaxana Troi episodes.

      I’ve got admit, though, every time I see her or a Ferengi, all my baser violent Klingon-esque urges come out, and I’d like to take a shotgun to my TV.

        The Ferengi I get. Their depiction in most of TNG leaves a lot to be desired but I will not stand for this slander against the Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Riix, and Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed!

        The Ferengi get a lot more interesting in DS9, once they add a few Ferengi main characters. In TNG they are mostly just a recurring villain. The DS9 Ferengi episodes are god-tier.

      Her appearance on DS9 trying to seduce Odo, turning him into jelly (no pun intended?) is fun too.
