Two very different Iyaaran ambassadors put Worf and Troi through their paces during a cultural exchange. Meanwhile, en route to the Iyaaran homeworld, a shuttle carrying Picard crashes on a planet where a woman has been stranded for seven years, but all is not as it seems…

The Trekzone Review

A pretty uneventful episode unfortunately… the ambassadors use different methods to determine the value of our crew. It’s definitely a unique take on the usual diplomatic first contact, but it just doesn’t pay off as well as it could.. despite some great acting from Michael and Marina as they deal with their ambassadors.
