In Star Trek TNG "PEN PALS" a distressed voice is received by Commander Data (Brent Spiner) who picked up a call on a transmitter. Does he answer??? Lets just get real for a second, I promise I won't take long, The Character in question has a name (believe it or not) although you wouldn't think so from looking at her. She looks good enough to get a starring role in "Nightmare on Elmstreet" or "Scary Movie."  All of this is a little beside the point.

When I first heard Sarjenka, my heart nearly melted a thousand times and then I SAW her FACE. OMG - what a transformation. A FACE OF PAIN!!!! You'll have to truly decide for yourselves. Be warned though, shes a real heart breaker. Sarjenka's sweet little voice is actually pleading for help....Captain Picard wasn't too impressed with the semantics of the situation. (He had bigger plans) However, SARJENKA (Nikki Cox) proved that her alien culture was unaware of alien cultures and that saving her world didn't involve smashing the Prime Directive in tiny pieces -

So when Data brings Sarjanka back to USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D, you might well ask.... Is this the androids smartest or dumbest move to date?

Was O'Brien (Colm Meaney) right? "Theres going to be hell to pay!"

Its over to you trekkers.

I barely remember this episode. I'm sure Dada had a good reason to bring her on the ship. I just hope he wasn't too trusting and she turned into a villain.

I THINK I remember this episode. I feel like half of the series dealt with them bending the lines of the Prime Directive lol.
