A scientist from Kaelon II, whose star is dying, has an idea to rejuvenate the star, and the Enterprise has the technology to test this theory on another star. Lwaxanna Troi is on board as a passenger and falls for him, and then causes all sorts of trouble when she learns he is about to commit ritual suicide...
A slower paced episode then what we've had in the past few. In fact, it's probably one of only a handful of episodes in The Next Generation to focus on a guest character. An episode about family values and the burdens of society, and our first taste of Michelle Forbes, eventually Ensign Ro.
