Morality of Risa

Story: Let He Who Is Without Sin...
Written By: Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1996

I hate Risa stories. They are the dumbest thing in the universe, because “sex planet” will always seem creepy to me. This episode is a failure because it tries to talk about openness with sex and those who want to be a bit more conservative…but it is just done so poorly I can’t stand it.
Basically, Worf is a stick in the mud for 30 minutes while Dax, Bashir, and Lela all act like horny kids on ecstasy. Annoying Christian Right analogues serve as assholes trying to stop the sex planet through its weather controls. It is painful to watch.

NEXT TIME: More of Odo on Terok Nor
