MANHUNT - episode #19 of 2nd season / Air Date: 6/19/89
written by Terry Devereaux; Directed by Rob Bowman

The long awaited return of Lwaxana Troi (Majel Barrett), Deana's over-sexed mom. What's that? You could have waited longer? I feel your pain. Yeah, this episode is pretty wretched and even interminable. The one with her 1st show-up, Haven, at least had some easygoing charm and Lwaxana was just a sidelight; this time, she dominates the story and everything is dragged out. Even more, Lwaxana is in 'The Phase' - this mean her sex drive has quadrupled. This means she's 4 times as annoying as before and looking for a mate. It's this episode which made fans leery of the character. Mr. Homn (Carel Struycken), her silent extra-tall valet, also returns.

Since she sets her sights on Picard, he escapes to the holodeck, to his Dixon Hill persona. But, where his last adventure as the old-time detective (The Big Goodbye) had some intrigue, this has nothing. Picard just hangs out with his secretary, going to the local bar. This is one of the most boring episodes of the entire series.
There's also a subplot about two frozen fishlike ambassadors, one of whom is played by Mick Fleetwood (of Fleetwood Mac). There's a minor revelation out of left field at the very end and one funny moment with Worf:
BoG's Score: 2.5 out of 10
