Star Trek: The Next Generation “The Last Outpost” (part 3 of 3)

The two Ferengi underlings drop their whips, and apparently never get them back again, which is a real shame, because all in all, they were pretty cool weapons. But never mind that, because it’s time to introduce the world to another famous Ferengi hang-up, that of the beclothed state of females of other species.

After an earful of that, it’s back to the Enterprise, where they’re still freezing. Dr. Crusher puts in an appearance to confirm their state of helplessness, and also, for reasons unknown, mention Wesley.

Back on the planet, the Ferengi are now hobbling around like the buffoons we’ll soon come to know them as, much to the annoyance of Yar, who still has her phaser drawn and would very much prefer them to stand still. Finally, she fires a stun beam, only to have the beam suddenly careen off into a pair of crystal spires. You’ll remember those as the ones Data dismissed earlier as “nothing to write home about”.

Insert Stormtrooper joke here.

Tarr still has his whip, and he tries a shot with it, but the crystals gobble that up, too.

If your electro-whip remains erect for more than four hours, consult a physician.
