NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

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 tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Memorable Moments

One of the most memorable moments in this episode comes when Riker is trying to escape from the hospital where he is kept under heavy guard. Lanel, presumably a nurse, offers to create a distraction, but only if he will make love to her ... because she has "always wanted to make love to an alien".

Quotes

Riker: Now, will you help me?
Nurse Lanel: If you make love to me? [...] I've always wanted to make love to an alien.
