Absurd is about right.
But besides the holographic AI avatar of a starship having intercourse with a flesh and blood sentient being, the entire AI thing is a real head scratcher. The fact that humans can create self-aware machines is just such a strange concept particularly since it is beginning to move out of the realm of science fiction and into science reality.
I strongly suspect we have already given birth to AI and just don't know it yet. If we're going to give AI as much power as Hunter has, then we have to give it a conscience - and the human conscience is the only model we have. Which suggests a need to create an AI that is as human as possible.
I tend to play most sex scenes for humor and once I had created a space ship with the ability to fall in love with a woman, the idea of having it experience an orgasm was just too funny to leave on the table.
