There was one episode where the "Chalice of Rixx" was called a vase with moss growing in it, but other than that, I don't remember anything from the show - perhaps something from the novels?Nope.The Sacred Chalice of Rixx is an injoke referring to Rick Berman (Rixx=Rick). Majel Roddenberry told that story several times in interviews over the years. Watch some of the DVD special features and I'm sure you'll run across it.

You sure it doesn't have anything to do with photon torpedoes?
The holoprogram Pleasure Goddess of Rixx may be related. It is logical to assume Rixx is a city or region on Betazed.
Deanna Troi once described the Sacred Chalice as "an old clay pot with mold growing inside."
I think the names of the objects say it all... they're religious artifacts.
