Star Trek: The Next Generation Rewatch: "The Loss"
The Enterprise encounters two-dimensional beings, and Troi loses her empathy (in more ways than one), as the TNG Rewatch suffers "The Loss."

An excerpt:
As Troi is packing up her office, Brooks comes in and informs Troi that she was completely right about her, that her night of crying was just a band-aid on a bullet wound. Picard then calls her into his ready room — they only have five hours before they collide with the cosmic string fragment, and he has to insist that Troi help Data try to communicate with the 2D beings. Even crippled as she is, she’s the most qualified person on the ship to figure out how to communicate with the beings. (A thousand people on a ship whose mission is to seek out new life, and they don’t have any linguists? Really?)

Yay, now I can read an interesting review of an uninteresting episode. :)

Heh... I just referenced this episode the other night during a theology discussion... comparing the fact that the 2D life forms could not properly conceive of nor communicate with the Enterprise is similar to how we humans are limited in our conceptions and communications with the divine...
