Episode Notes:
+ "He has digits on his terminus!" -- is that the "Chewing gum on his pubis" of the Star Trek universe?
+ I spent the whole episode going "Saaaaampa. Sampa, hi!" (Big Eden. I watch it a lot.)
+ I don't even have words for the woman who sees Riker and is like, "I am going to get me some of that weird alien action. He can digit my terminus." On the one hand, she is a bit creepy and coercive. On the other hand, I can't help but respect her for flying her freak flag proud and going for what she wants.

Overall Reaction: I always enjoy seeing Riker go into diplomat mode, and this was no exception. It was interesting to see how the Federation approaches an intentional first contact, and even more interesting that the aliens decided they weren't ready to be part of an intergalactic community yet.

It's been a few months since I watched the episode (oops), so I don't have much else to say, but I thought this was a solid venture.

Star Rating: ***

Quote of the Episode: "My world's history has recorded that conquerors often arrived with the words, 'We are your friends'." (Good point, Sampa)
