That's enough! says Riker
July 21, 2012 11:51 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation where Riker hits a table and yells that's enough!

He might not say that exact phrase, because I can't find it on the Internet. I'm pretty sure that he is in a meeting in the briefing room. They are trying to solve some kind of a problem, and Riker gets irritated and decides they just have to go solve the problem.

Unfortunately I remember nothing about the problem, what season it was in, or anything at all about the rest of the episode.

Unfortunately it's not Schisms - he doesn't hit a table in that episode with his hand, even though tables do appear to central in Schisms.

On my phone, but off the top of my head, Frame of Mind is the first that came to mind. Another possibility is Future Imperfect. Perhaps older Riker in All Good Things?

Riker gets mighty annoyed with the Kes & Prytt ambassadors in Attached the episode in which Picard & Crusher have been kidnapped and have had neural devices implanted that give them a telepathic link. From that link (bolding mine):
Fed up by the two nations' lack of communication, Riker has Worf transport the Prytt Security Minister, Lorin, to the observation lounge against her will, to force a dialogue with Mauric. However, the "dialogue" is entirely unproductive, as the two ministers hurl various conspiracy theories at each other – for instance, Lorin says the Prytt "know" about the Kes's plans to build new orbital attack satellites with Federation technology – and so on.
Riker slams a hand down on the table and tells both ministers he is finished with them.
I haven't watched the episode in years, though, so I can't be sure whether it transpires exactly as you describe.

Yeah, Johnny Assay has it: it appears the scene you seek occurs in Attached, season 7 episode 8, although Riker doesn't say "That's enough!" At about the 36 min 30 sec mark Riker slams the table and says, "That's it!"
