Episode Info

On board the Enterprise to negotiate a truce between two warring factions, the distinguished Lumerian ambassador Ramid Ves Alkar (Chip Lucia) worries that his darker side will surface and compromise his efforts. His fears seem to be allayed when Deanna Troi begans acting strangely, exhibiting more raw emotionalism than anyone has ever seen from her. Before long, we discover that Alkar has secretly transferred his own negative emotions to Troi, and the effect may not be reversible. Originally telecast October 10, 1992, "Man of the People" was written by Frank Abatemarco.
