For many of us, summer is a time to consider vacations as a family. And while we may have a plethora of options in real life to visit, imagine all the countless locales that our characters could visit in the Star Trek universe! The pleasure planet of Risa is a popular choice of many Star Trek characters and is featured in three distinct television series. In the episode "Two Days and Two Nights" (ENT), Archer and crew get into unexpected entanglements. "Captain's Holiday" (TNG) presents us with an exciting, yet laid backside of Captain Picard when he meets the mysterious Vash. "The Game" (TNG) shows us Riker bringing back a dangerous technology to the Enterprise that he was introduced to by a woman he met while vacationing there. "Let He Who Is Without Sin ..." (DS9) visits the planet again and Worf becomes involved with a dangerous terrorist group.

It is these kinds of secondary planets woven into the fabric of the Star Trek galaxy that gives us a deeply rich place to write and roleplay. Where would your character choose to visit for some extended shore leave away from the ship? Would they eschew the common tourist destinations and pick something a little more out of the way like Bolarus, Andoria, or Betazed? What draws them to these destinations?  Let us know in the comments.

For Noa, it'd be either Earth, Vulcan or Risa.

Earth and Vulcan since she has family on both planets.

As for Risa... well... she's never been to Risa before, so she'd definitely like to visit it one day.

Alieth is like that family member from the city who returns to her hometown every summer because she misses the place but makes every effort to keep busy so she is EVERYWHERE except with her family because you know what happened last time.
So, yep, Vulcan.

I've always wanted to check out Argelia. Supposedly the 2nd most popular vacation site after Risa.

For Appa it would be Bajor as he often visits i every 5 years with his family.

Vulcan has a hot climate. That's the only winning factor for poor constantly-cold Blake.

Planet Haven I think sounds idyllic:

Haven was a M-class planet  orbiting  Beta Cassius. It was inhabited by a humanoid civilization. The planet was renowned for its tranquil beauty to the point that many thought it possessed mystical healing powers, though this claim was unsupported by scientific evidence. According to legend, Haven "has been known to mend souls and heal broken hearts."
