Miles and Keiko get married, but not until after O’Brien suffers. An interlude dance sequence gives me a headache.
Counselor Troi loses her empathic ability, but gains the very special ability to act just like a snotty 14 year old human female.
Wesley is finally leaving for the academy, but first he has to crash a shuttle, get Jean-Luc injured, let an old drunk die, and play Ocarina of Time to unlock a water fountain. Goddamnit, Wesley.

Worf just straight up killed Duras and his punishment is a stern talking to and an official reprimand in his file. “I have made Mr. Worf aware that murder is generally frowned upon in the Federation. He said he was ‘super sorry’ and he promised not to do it again.”
Tasha Yar had a sister.
Did you ever realize that O’Brien is literally the Enterprise Elevator Porter? He just stands there beaming people up, beaming people down, never really going anywhere…
Wesley hasn’t even been to the academy yet, but he manages to warp his mother in to an alternate dimension, a feat every teenage boy tries at least once in their lives.
Oh noes, a distress signal! They find a human child, Jono, who has been missing and is now immersed in the Talarian culture. In order to remind the child of his humanity, they saddle Picard – who said in episode 1 that he hates children – with this just-barely-not-ferral scamp.
For his trouble, Picard is stabbed in the chest.
This week, on Riker’s Very Bad Babysitting Service, a nine year old eats poisoned berries on unsupervised shore leave, and Data hijacks the ship and runs away to find his real family.
Worf’s parents are visiting while the Enterprise is getting a tune up. He’s not happy about it. We won’t see Worf happy for at least a decade.
