Storyline

After Doctor Beverly Crusher insists that Captain Picard is in need of recreation after exhausting negotiations between two hostile planets, the crew manages to make him accept a stay on a well-reputed holiday planet where Commander William T. Riker gets him to pick up a local souvenir statue, without telling him it is the accepted means to call for sexual gratification. After he brushes off obliging females, Picard is approached by several people, including two aliens from the future, who draw him into a quest for a mythical weapon - just the adventure he needs to refresh and revive him.

Error in the summary
18 December 2008 | by markhspSee all my reviews

There are at least two errors in the summary of this episode. Quoted: "After Doctor Beverly Crusher insists that captain Picard is in need of recreation after exhausting negotiations between two hostile planets, the crew manages to make him accept a stay on a well-reputed holiday planet where Commander William T. Riker gets him to pick up the local best-selling book, without telling him it is the accepted means to call for sexual gratification. After he brushes off obliging females, Picard is approached by several people, including future inhabitants of the two planets he just negotiated with, who draw him into a quest for a mythical book- just the adventure he needs to eat his heart out?" Riker asked Picard to pick up a horga'hn, which is a statue, not a best-selling book. Aditionally, the quest was for the tox-uthat, which is a mythical weapon, not a mythical book.
