Lwaxanna Troi is getting married! To keep herself amused while en route to meet her intended for the first time, she takes young Alexander Rozhenko underwing. She encourages the boy to adopt her own carefree ways, directly undermining both Worf's parenting and Deanna Troi's counseling. Meanwhile, parasites are devouring the ship.
A Lwaxanna episode and an Alexander episode combined into one? What's more, they're enabling one another's most annoying tendencies? Oh, joy!
Nope, I'm not a fan of this one. Worth noting, though, it won two Emmys: costume design and makeup.
Brian Bonsall (Alexander) was born December 3, 1981 in Torrance, California. Trek was actually his second high-profile television gig. In 1986, he was cast as Andy, the youngest Keaton child in Family Ties. He won three Young Artist Awards for that part. He made his big screen debut in 1992, starring in Mikey.
Bonsall retired from acting at the ripe old age of 14. Since then, he's been active as a musician, most prominently as lead guitarist for the Ataris for a few years. He's had more than his fair share of legal troubles, both assault and drug charges. He is married with one child, born in 2019.
