On one of the occasions that Starfleet sent the Murgatroid VERY far away, during
a critical part of the Dominion War, they made first contact with the planet
Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania (actually, second contact; Transylvanians spent some time on Earth
during the twentieth century).
Transsexual was a really swinging party planet, and Jellico granted the crew
shore leave. He instructed the crew to observe local taboos and mores (of which
there weren't any) and to have fun getting involved in the local rituals... And
in the locals...
Unfortunately, the locals tried to prevent the Murgatroid crew from
leaving... Here, a stunned Storvik is carried away
by two members of the Transvestite Shock Legions, and Qaren flees from one of
their mad scientists...
But Storvik and Qaren managed to lead a successful
escape with no casualties (from the Murgatroid crew). There has been very
little official contact with the Transylvanian galaxy since then. Jellico filed
a full report with Starfleet; bootleg copies of which (with pictures) are very
popular with cadets at Starfleet Academy.

Storvik was sent there on temporary assignment (due to his previous experience
with the inhabitants and local customs) to help open relations with the
