On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Behind the Scenes

Allusions and References

At one point Ardra claims to be the Klingon equivalent of the devil, Fek'lar.

Memorable Moments

The devil woman, Ardra, toys with Picard several times in a somewhat demeaning manner: beaming him off the ship in his nightgown, fondling his bald head in an overly-familiar way, etc.
