Hospitality in Star Trek - Help Needed

Hi evryone,

I have been a Trek fan for years now and currently researching a project at University where I am investigating examples of Hospitality ( Bars, first contact receptions, stays on alien ships...) in Star Trek films and TV Series'.

There is a chance that I could get a publication at the end of it and would appreciate it if anyone could help me by suggesting examples they are aware of where the phenomenon of hospitality features.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Hospitality in Star Trek - Help Needed

Undiscovered Country's the obvious one.
The DS9 episode Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges (I had to look up the proper Latin title, but had remember the Eglish form).
The wedding from Nemesis, maybe?
The opening scene from Insurrection, defintely.
Babel, TOS; I have a vague feeling TNG did a similar episode, but aren't sure.
The base commander from the Die Hard TNG episode, "Starship Mine" held a reception for the Enterprise crew.
An early DS9 episode has Bashir looking after a group of diplomats, but I don't remember whether or not we see any actual reception or equivilent.
Depending how loosely you want to take it, every episode of DS9 had a scene in Quark's bar! (Similarly Ten Forward in TNG or the mess hall in VOY).

Be interestd to see how/where this develops. What's your deadline?

Interesting Ten Forward scenes in TNG's "The Child" (introduction of Guinan), "The Offspring" (Lal learning how to tend bar and encountering Riker) and "Lower Decks" (a junior waiter, Ben, filling in for Goldberg's Guinan).

Re: Hospitality in Star Trek - Help Needed

A few samples from three of the series:

TOS:
Corbomite Maneuver (alien hosp)
Journey to Babel (reception)
Shore Leave (alien amusement park)
The Apple (alien hosp)
The Trouble With Tribbles (bar)
The Cloudminders (alien hosp)
The Enterprise Incident (Romulan hosp )

TNG:
Justice (extreme alien hospitality)
Yesterday's Enterprise (SF hospitality for time travelers)
The Inner Light (ritual celebration)

ENT:
Unexpected (alien hospitality)
Oasis (alien hospitality)
Vox Sola (open teaser: hospitality gone wrong)
Desert Crossing (essence of the male )
Two Days and Two Nights (bar)
Carbon Creek (strangers in a strange land)
Cogenitor (unequal hospitality)
Home (Vulcan hosp)
Babel One (reception)

I don't remember enough about DS9 and VOY ... sorry.

McCoy visits a bar on Earth in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock ("How can you not hear with ears like that?!").

There's also the bar in Iowa that Kirk visits in the latest Star Trek (2009) film.

Interesting topic for a research project.

To me, the way Guinan relates to people in Ten Forward is the epitome of hospitality.

^ Not a problem. You can remove the extra post by hitting edit. Then hit "delete" and it should erase it from the page.

If that doesn't work for you, I can always delete it for you.

So where's this "delete" icon supposed to be? I don't see it.

^ Sorry. Missed a step. Hit "Go Advanced" and then hit "Delete". (My controls are a bit different from yours since I am a mod.)
