Wrigley's Pleasure Planet (or Rigleigh's Pleasure World) was a planet. It was a famed recreational destination in Federation space, considered along with Risa as "one of the most popular vacation spots in the Alpha Quadrant." (TLE novel: The Art of the Impossible; SCE eBook: The Future Begins, ENT novel: Rosetta, DS9 eBook: Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found))

Background[edit | edit source]

The planet had a purple atmosphere with seas and islands. (TOS comics: "All Those Years Ago...", "The Survival Equation", DS9 novel: Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found))

Rigleigh's Pleasure World had been established prior to the 2150s. (ENT novel: Rosetta)

Its facilities were described as a hedonistic assault on the senses, with blaring music and nonstop entertainment. (TNG - Double Helix novel: Double or Nothing, Star Trek: Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)

It contained parks and special theme centers that reflected a wide-range of entertainments and diversions. (FASA RPG module: The Federation, ST reference: Star Trek Maps)

Founding purchaser Horatio Wrigley was rumored to have died there following an extended stay. One could see spotlights from orbit. (TNG - Double Helix novel: Double or Nothing)

By the 2260s, the Wrigley family had been running the planet for five generations. (TOS - New Visions comic: "The Survival Equation")

While the vast majority of sources noted it as a planet with centuries-old facilities, two described it as an asteroid or planetoid hollowed out in the 23rd century. FASA RPG module: The Federation stated that an interstellar cartel of entertainment directors purchased a stray asteroid in the Sol system, near planet Mars, had its interior hollowed out, and built the center inside in the early 2260s (reference stardate 2/02). ST reference: Star Trek Maps asserted that this occurred to a rogue planetoid with a 600-kilometer diameter in 2238.

History[edit | edit source]

Commander Gary Mitchell was on shore leave at Wrigley's in 2264 when he received new orders reassigning him to the USS Enterprise. (TOS comic: "All Those Years Ago...")

During a mission to M-113 in 2266, Crewman Scott Darnell mistook Nancy Crater for resembling a girl that he met on Wrigley's Pleasure Planet. However, this was a telepathic illusion that were created by the M-113 creature, and with this illusion the creature was able to entice Darnell so that it could kill him. (TOS episode & Star Trek 1 novelization: The Man Trap)

In 2268, Wrigley was its proprietor when the USS Enterprise orbited Wrigley's Pleasure Planet for shore leave. Captain James T. Kirk was shocked to discover the android Andrea serving as a hostess, since when he last saw her in 2266 she had been disintegrated by Roger Korby. When confronted, proprietor Wrigley confessed that he had purchased 16 of the Andrea androids, with more on order, from someone who turned out to be Harry Mudd. (TOS - New Visions comic: "The Survival Equation")

In 2373, Leonard McCoy's 146th birthday party was held on Wrigley's Pleasure Planet, with Spock in attendance. (TOS novel: Avenger)

In 2375, Mackenzie Calhoun and Lodec walked through the streets of Wrigley's Pleasure Planet to rendezvous with Gerrid Thul and Vara Syndra in a private suite. At that time, Calhoun noted that Wrigley's was one of the few places in the galaxy where spotlights could be seen from orbit. Eventually Thul took them to a cloaked Dyson sphere, where Calhoun met up with a disguised Jean-Luc Picard. The Starfleet captains were investigating the source of several deadly epidemics. (TNG - Double Helix novel: Double or Nothing)

In 2381, Deneva native Augustus Betances went to Wrigley's following a fight with his wife. While he was there, the Borg attacked and destroyed Deneva, killing his wife and daughter. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)

By the late 24th century, Wrigley Pleasure Planet's had somewhat fallen from grace, as worlds like Risa overtook its popularity. However, in the years following the Borg Invasion of 2381 and the loss of Risa, Wrigley's reclaimed its former status as a premiere entertainment venue and vacation spot in the quadrant. (DS9 eBook: Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found))

By 2385, Bynars Zero-Zero and One-One had been banned from gambling on Wrigley's, Risa and even in Orion casinos. (ST - Star Trek: The Fall novel: The Poisoned Chalice)

In 2385, Quark and Shmenge traveled to Wrigley's Pleasure Planet to speak to Ardon Broht about Vulcan Love Slave. Holo-Palooza was being held there. (DS9 eBook: Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found))

In an alternate timeline, T'Pol compared the casual atmosphere of the Berkeley University campus to a resort on Wrigley's Pleasure Planet. (Star Trek: Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
