Counselor Troi's mother Lawaxana Troi visits the Enterprise and becomes infatuated with Dr. Timicin (Stiers) whose culture forces him into a suicidal ritual called "The Resolution." This episode was likely inspired by the novel "Pebble in the Sky" by Isaac Asimov, which depicts a future Earth in which the inhabitants were also required to end their lives at the age of 60 as depicted in the alien world in this episode.
