Risans

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Risans1
Quadrant : Beta

Humanoid species noted for their hedonistic approach to life.2 Risa is in a binary system1, and although it is naturally a swampland its extensive weather modification system gives the entire planet a tropical climate.3 Combined with the local's easygoing approach to life this has made Risa a very popular holiday destination with many Federation citizens.4

A popular Risan symbol is the Horga'hn, a statuette which is the symbol of sexuality. To display a horga'hn is to indicate that you are seeking jamaharon, a mysterious procedure said to be very enjoyable.1 Care should be taken with this practice, as jamaharon has been known to be fatal to those with a weak heart. Curzon Dax died via jamaharon, although he did at least die with a smile on his face.3

In 2366 Captain Picard took a holiday on Risa, where he first met Vash and destroyed the Tox Utat.1 In 2368 Commander Riker met a Katarian operative on Risa who introduced him to an addictive game designed to control the minds of all those who used it.5 In 2367 Geordi LaForge went to attend an AI conference on Risa, but was intercepted and kidnapped by Romulans whilst on the way.6

The New Essentialists were a group of Federation citizens who claimed that Risa represented the Federation's soft attitude toward life. They aimed to disrupt the planet as much as possible, and in 2373 they were joined by Lieutenant Commander Worf. Worf accessed the planets weather control system and shut it down, ruining the holidays of hundreds of thousands of people. Worf eventually saw the error of his ways and returned the weather to normal.3
