Story: The Forsaken
Written By: Jim Trombetta, Don Carlos Dunaway and Michael Piller
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1993

Some ambassadors are aboard the station; one of them is Lwaxana Troi. After he assists her in finding her broach, she develops a crush on Odo. Meanwhile a probe begins to disrupt the station’s computer.
It ends up having O’Brien attempt to solve the problem, Bashir escorting three ambassadors during the issues, and Odo and Lwaxana trapped together in turbolift. It isn’t the most brilliant or exciting episode in the world, but like TNG before it, it has characters (in some ways even better characters) that can make almost any plot seem fun.

Odo and Lwaxana end up having a rather interesting relationship by the end. I liked all of her visits to the station, often more so than her TNG visits. I’m glad that this wasn’t her only.
