Let’s get this party unstarted
Three drunk and lascivious Betazoid diplomats (all women over 50, naturally) are being transported by the Cerritos to Risa. Their telepathic/empathic projections cause the entire crew to "get their party on," resulting in drunken excess and rowdiness that occurs in the background of a lot of shots in Ten Forward, or whatever the bar on this ship is called. Eventually, the partying reaches a fever pitch that Freeman finds unacceptable. When she tries to shut it down, the Betazoids revolt, turning the episode into a classic Ship Takeover Plot. The lunacy is set against the character backdrop of T’Lyn — unhappy aboard the Cerritos — trying to send a message to her former captain, hoping to return to the Vulcan ship she was banished from.
