TNG Season 7 Episode 2
Air Date: September 27th, 1993

The Enterprise is visited by two Iyaarian ambassadors while Captain Picard is taken by an Iyaarian pilot to visit their home planet. The ambassadors had other goals though. They have never had the experiences love, pleasure and antagonism.

One of the ambassadors learns about pleasure through guidance of Counselor Troi, specifically in the consumption of food and chocolate. The other learns about antagonism with Lt. Worf, where he constantly is rude and aggressive towards Worf until they get into a fight. And it turns out Picard is used to learn about love by crashing the shuttle onto a dangerous planet and the pilot uses a holo device to turn himself into a woman who courts Picard.


"I do not see why it is necessary to wear these ridiculous uniforms." - Lt. Worf
"Protocol." - Cmdr. Riker
"They look like dresses." - Lt. Worf
"That is an incredibly outmoded and sexist attitude! I'm surprised at you. Besides, you look good in a dress." - Cmdr. Riker

"I have heard that, in moments of diplomatic tension, it is often helpful to find elements of commonality." = Lt. Cmdr. Data
"Ambassador Byleth is demanding, temperamental and rude!" - Lt. Worf
"You share all of those qualities in abundance. Perhaps you should try to build on your similarities!" - Lt. Cmdr. Data

"Even if I were cheating, how would a plodding animal like you know it?" - Ambassador Byleth
"You are an insulting, pompous fool! And if you were not an ambassador, I would disembowel you right here!" - Lt. Worf
"Do not let my title inhibit you, Klingon!" - Ambassador Byleth
