I can see your point and I partly agree, but the fact is that the writers did manage to depict wonderful, believable friendships that slowly developed over time.
Absolutely. In fact, I think I said that earlier.
I noticed, but refuting your argument with your own quote didn't seem the polite thing to do.

but the sex usually doesn't involve any real romance.
So sex yes, lovemaking no.

Trip and T'Pol rubbing each others feet, very sensual, Picard banging Vash and then running away, not so much.

Star Trek can show true romance, so it is possible. Trip & T'Pol was one. Worf & Jadzia is another I though was handled nicely because there was a slow build up of the relationship, they didn't suddenly fall in love.

Problem is, with the maybe/maybe not addition of Riker & Deanna, those are the only romances in all of Star Trek.
I thought the only convincingly done long-term relationship was Tom Paris and B'lanna.

I tend to agree with you on this one.

As much as I love DS9, I didn't quite get most of the relationship choices. The relationship between Sisko and Yates being the exception.

Yeah well, I couldn't stand Ezri.

Trek not only did a lousy job on depicting romance, but also on depicting counselors.

That and I blamed her for taking the wonderful and gorgeous Jadzia away from me.

Re: Star Trek and Homosexuality

Oh and I agree with the depiction of counseling, it was even worse than Troi. Cringeworthy viewing.

The Host dealt with a response from Beverly, who rejected her lover because its new host was female.
No. Beverley rejected Odan because she didn't think she could handle the Trill worm moving to potentially a series of humanoid bodies. The fact that this version of Odan host was female was not the issue.

In the Host, Riker's girlfriend was literally a girl.
The Riker and Soren episode was "The Outcast".
