Stardate: 42859.2--Lwaxana Troi hops a ride on Enterprise to a conference to which it is taking two other delegates to, as Lwaxana is going as a delegate too. The other two delegates have come aboard in self induced comas, as to avoid their species dislike of space travel.

Meanwhile, the crew tries to find ways to avoid Lwaxana, as she chases after Capt. Picard and others, for marital purposes; in effect, her “manhunt.” Deanna explains that her mother is at the point in her life where a Betazoid woman’s sex drive increases tenfold. When Picard decides to hide in a Dickson Hill holodeck program, Lwaxana sets her sights on Riker.

However, as the other two delegates begin to fully awaken from their comas, it is Lwaxana’s telepathy that alerts the crew to a major danger facing the conference.
