BAF also suffers the cardinal sin of making that scene longer than any televised love scene on Trek, and gives us characters we just met and expects us to give a damn. That's a mistake straight, gay, or ambisexual porkchop fetishist.
I think Maurice puts it pretty well here. I still believe it was a simple case of trying too hard to present the relationship as a non-issue (which it is). It just doesn't quite work out as intended.
I agree, too.

The sheer amount of time spent focusing on the scene makes the relationship seem special and unusual. I know that when I was watching it I quickly began to want it to end, not because it was between two men, but because I wanted them to get to the story!

Cutting the scene's runtime in half would have helped everything.
