Enterprise “Two Days and Two Nights” (part 2 of 4)
In the shuttlecraft, Archer asks the crew if they have big plans. Travis Mayweather, wearing an indescribably horrendous shirt, coyly says he intends to go rock climbing. Rock climbing? On Risa? I’m by no means the expert on pleasure planets here, but I thought people went to Risa for a somewhat different purpose. Say, getting their rocks off.
Archer asks Malcolm Reed (who turns out to be a Brit, hurrah!) what his plans are. He responds that Risa is a very “cosmopolitan” place, and that there are species visiting from “all over”. It’s a fairly innocuous statement on the page, but on the screen, it’s dripping with saucy innuendo, and accompanied by a conspiratorial eyebrow waggle. Well, at least someone knows what Risa’s really for. (Even though I’d be remiss in not mentioning that my gaydar has gone off the scale over this man.)
