The Risa Curse

Post by marsh8472 » Wed Nov 29, 2017 8:36 pm

From episode "Captain's Holiday"
WORF: Captain, I would feel better if you would allow me to assign a security officer to you. We will be out of communication range when we leave orbit.
PICARD: I really don't think that will be necessary, Mister Worf. Risa has a reputation of being a most peaceful planet.
