Re: Hold up! So Riker had sex with that Malcorian from first contract.
There were plenty of episodes in "Cheers" where you could clearly see Bebe was quite the looker. They had to go pretty far in her usual Lilith look to make her look frumpy. But there were plenty of times when Lilith would let her hair down and it was like WOW! (See: The episode where she buys Sam in a bachelor auction.)
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
