Riker in First Contact (episode, not the film)
 
I like how the writers sneaked in a "I had sex with an alien" scene lol..

That said, how can alien species even have sex? :lol:

Basic insert slot A into slot B theory applies, even if the slots may be different shapes and in different places.

that's if the slots are compatible. lol..

For all one knows inserting may lead to an infection or worse. And not in a bad way, but a "slot" of an alien female may contain material only biologically compatible with males of her species.

Voyager's EMH implied that intimate relations with a Bolian can be hazardous to a human's health. :p

Well, sex with different species is hardly new in Star Trek. Their first alien EVER, was the result of Human/Vulcan mixing. Then there was Deanna Troi, Kehlar, Belanna Torres, Simon Tarses, and many others whom I can't think of right now.
In fact some other sci-fi, such as Larry Niven's Known Space series, and Babylon 5 have featured races where sexual relations is a formal part of diplomacy, (although Ivonova managed to bluff her way out of it.) I believe in the Larry Niven universe it's called Rishathra.

Or the standard load of inoculations SF personnel get includes alien STD's.

^ For whatever reason, I read your comment and then your username. It hit my funny bone. I just about spilled my coffee. Well done.

There was also Harry Kim (Harry Kim?) having sex with the alien woman from the really long ship from "The Disease". He'd only say "It was different."

Not all species keep their genitals in the same place, Captain.

This has to be probably the thing that irks me the most about Star Trek in general.

Interspecies sex. That doesn't happen on Earth. It wouldn't happen in space.

Any "race" that we are biologically compatible with stops being a race, and become a small variation of the same race! (as it is here on Earth).

To add insult to injury, the Star Trek "pairings" tended to be super hot women with weird looking alien "males". DS9 took it to extremes.

I don't think the reverse was seen much at all.

That wasn't just on Trek.

It happened all the time on other tv shows and movies so much that it has become a trope. It is especially common on comedies with the dumb average looking husband and the hot wife.
