Geordi, having fallen down a pit, is unable to reach the rendezvous coordinates at the designated time and is left on the planet.


As the Enterprise waits for a break in the storms to rescue Geordi, Dr. Crusher begins treatment of the injured Romulan. Crusher discovers Worf is the only compatible donor for a ribosome transfusion the Romulan needs to survive and is shocked when Worf refuses to help.

Another "Let's All Thank Wesley" episode.


But the whole point of this episode was to further develop the Romulans and they certainly did that. The relationship between LaForge and the Romulan on the planet trying to survive was handled well and both characters were presented very well.


Andreas Katsulas was superb as always as the evil Tomalak.


Good episode.


Rating = 3

5. The Wesley factor is negligible in this one because even though it's important, it's really not a dedicated part of the storyline. Terrific jobs from LeVar Burton and John Snyder. Worf and the other Romulan had an interesting exchange as well. Just a great episode.

I loved it! I admit, that I have a soft spot for Tomalak, he was always one of my favorite Romulans.


Bochra is a cutie and I just love him to death. He is so adorable when hes acting all; Im a big bad Romulan, RAWR! hehe So cute!


What really made me mad, was the fact that Crusher wouldnt stop being a you know what about the blood transfusion. The Romulan said NO. Worf said NO. What doesnt stick with her? =/


Its like, lady, your patient said NO WAY; respect him and his wishes.


But yes, I liked this one.
