Captain Jean-Luc Picard faced down Romulan warbirds, Cardassian guls, and Borg drones ... but he met his match when it came to Lwaxana Troi, the daughter of the Fifth House, holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, and heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed. Ms. Troi, later named an ambassador representing her home planet of Betazed, provided moments of embarrassment for her daughter Deanna. However, she brought a unique mother-daughter relationship to The Next Generation, as well as portraying a "woman of a certain age" with a healthy sexual attitude. From her appearances in "Haven," "Manhunt," and "Ménage à Troi," Troi brought doses of humor and spontaneity.
Lwaxana served more than comic relief, though - her struggles in "Half a Life," "Cost of Living," and "Dark Page," provided a more dramatic turn for her character. Daniel, Darren, and Phillip discuss this TNG character who appeared throughout the seven years of the Enterprise-D on television. Join Earl Grey as they hit a gong in appreciation for Lwaxana Troi, daughter of the Fifth House, holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, and heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed.
