The introduction of the character was very disturbing - wrongthink is bad! Lustful thoughts? You're not pretty enough to have lustfull thoughts! Privacy? What's that?
Sadly, 20 years later, we're well down that road.
One thing I never understood is why Troi never felt his attraction toward her. I know it's just the writers ignoring her "empathic" abilities for the sake of the story, but it's still annoying.
Far from the only time that Deanna's abilities had a blind spot or otherwise let her down.
Indeed. She was walking around that ship in a catsuit that left little to the imagination; maybe we're supposed to believe that the ship was peopled by a bunch of eunuchs, but my thinking is that she totally missed that most of the male crew wanted to do really nasty things to her.
