Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 10 (Haven)

Two fun episodes in a row, woowee! In this campy romp, Deanna gets a visit from her mother, future in-laws, and future husband (Wyatt) on a surprise arranged marriage visit, and chaos ensues!

Riker is the poutiest baby in the universe, Lwaxana is a force of nature, and Data loves the mess during all the nuptial celebrations and negotiations. Of course, as Deanna is cursed in love, it doesn't work out but we were shipping Wyanna (Dyatt?) HARD.

It seems like a good match has been made until the White Snake video girl shows up and steals Deanna's man, so she is stuck with Riker, yet again.

We do take a few serious beats to explore the themes of ableism and disease brought up in the episode, taking an interesting detour through the way people are treated when sickness is thought to be their own "fault."

Overall, much fun was had and we look forward to Lwaxana's return in future episodes!
