Extended Synopsis (by Tim Lynch) ------------------------------------

The Enterprise arrives at Haven, a paradise planet renowned throughout the galaxy. Suddenly, Troi is sent a package from the planet. It's a talking chest, informing her that her mother and her fiancé are below. Her long- arranged marriage is suddenly imminent, and she must leave the Enterprise after marrying.

The Millers (her fiancé and his parents) beam aboard first. Deanna meets Wyatt for the first time. He seems strangely surprised by her appearance. After they leave, Deanna's mother Lwaxana beams aboard with her valet, Mr. Homn. Lwaxana is a tad eccentric; she takes great delight in informing everyone of their thoughts, and is rather vocally convinced that every male she's ever met has lustful thoughts about her. Picard leaves gracefully as quickly as he can.

Deanna and Wyatt are attracted to each other, but she's not what he expected. Ever since he was a child, there's been a face deep in his mind, which he's drawn several times, and he expected that that face belonged to Deanna. Meanwhile, an unidentified ship appears at the limit of sensor range, and the Enterprise, by Federation agreement with Haven, must defend them. As they near it, they find it's a Tarellian vessel. The Tarellians are victims of an old biological war- the disease they carry is contagious and incurable. They keep watch on it.

Meanwhile, Deanna starts to have second thoughts about the vows she took as a child, and arguments over the ceremony reach a feverish level. The Tarellians hail the Enterprise, and to everyone's surprise, Wyatt's dream-girl is on board, as one of the plague victims. Wyatt, a doctor, decides to beam over and try to cure their disease. This solves both problems at once: the ship decides not to stop at Haven as originally planned, and with Wyatt gone, Deanna's marriage is aborted before it begins. The Millers depart, as does Lwaxana, with one parting jab at Picard, pretending to be shocked at his lustful thoughts.
