Yes. I think the Deltans from ST:TMP were his crowning achievement in degeneracy. A "sexually advanced species" whose whole society was based on fucking. Like, instead of using a signature to affirm a contract, the two people would fuck.

You'll notice that the franchise completely distanced themselves from the Deltans after that one movie.

That's a retarded idea that gets more retarded if you actually think about it for more than two seconds. What happens if there's a dispute and they have to prove there was a contract in court? Also, Harvey Weinstein would have done nothing wrong on this planet. "If you want to be in my movie you've got to 'sign a contract'."

I know why the Deltans aren't mentioned anymore. There were a lot of business deals between men, and they all died of AIDS.

I've always thought that Pulaski was a lot better character than Crusher, who was so fucking boring and bland. At least Pulaski had characterization.
Wasn't she just Dr. McCoy with a vagina?

Next Gen did give us the Edo, a toned-down version of the Deltans.

They also gave us Risa. I liked that DS9 episode where Worf deemed the Risans as degenerates and joined a right-wing group opposing them.

I do think AIDS is a major reason this free-love concept fell out of favor.

They cut out most of what Gene wanted to include about Deltans in TMP, too. Basically being around them made everyone have an uncontrollable desire to fuck them and the only way Ilia was allowed to serve in Starfleet was if she took an oath of celibacy.

There was a TNG episode with Famke Janssen in it that seemed to borrow a lot of this though.

It still never made sense to me. It doesn't matter what oath she took, she'd still be a huge distraction.

One of the deleted scenes shows that she turned on Mr. Sulu(!). The novelization said that all the men had hard-ons and so Kirk made Sulu get up and give her a tour of the bridge. Sulu was thinking, "Please don't make me stand up now, Captain!"
So dumb.

Any chance of TMP getting a new cut?

What a cruel episode that was. I almost thought they'd just let them kill Wesley.
