Worf, Dax, Bashir, Leeta, and Quark vacation on Risa, but once there, Worf joins a radical fundamentalist group determined to destroy the total peace Risa enjoys.
"Do not hug me." -Worf to Bashir
- Robert Hewitt Wolfe regards this as his least favorite episode out of those that he wrote or co-wrote.
- In the scene where Worf walks in on Leeta and her Risian companion in the purple mesh tank top, Leeta was originally naked and in a bath tub. This is evident in the original 30-second promotional spot, available at startrek.com.
- Ira Steven Behr also wrote the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Captain's Holiday", where Risa first appeared.
- The scene with Quark and the Risan females mirrors a scene in TOS: "Shore Leave" with Doctor McCoy and several imaginary women.
- This episode is one of very few to tell a story of Worf's childhood.
- This episode is featured in the "Star Trek's Beautiful Alien Women" documentary of the Star Trek: Insurrection Special Edition DVD. Terry Farrell talks about working with Vanessa Williams and Chase Masterson talks about the scene with the Risan male.
