In my mind I had always associated this title with the planet that was ruled by women, but it turns out it wasn't that at all. It's the episode where we first meet Lwaxana Troi. The planet Haven itself actually has very little to do with it.
Some great moments between Lwaxana and Picard, of course, and they really stand out as one of the better parts of this episode.
Deanna keeps calling Riker "Bill" in this episode, but production wise it is the fifth episode made, so I guess it's understandable.
I have to wonder if the plague ship is a leftover from the original "Blood and Fire" story concept?
