Picard married Beverly Crusher at some point before the series finale. They also got divorced.

That still counts as an alternate continuity.  Don't forget that in that timeline the Enterprise D was also never destroyed and Troi didn't marry Riker and had died.

Possible that Picard and Beverly never had the same fate either, but I guess we'll find out.

Troi always scared the shit out of me, a really hot babe that can read your true thoughts. At all times.  :hide: That's bad dreams stuff right there.

Dunno, half the time she was pretty useless...

I had the same problem with Porthos on "Enterprise". I mean, really...A DOG on an experimental ship! Guess who is first out the airlock in an emergency.

I can understand having a ship's counselor from a mental health staff perspective. I don't understand why she had a bridge position. I supposed it fit in with Roddenberry's Utopian first season philosophy.

I think she was meant to help with diplomacy, and so naturally had a bridge position for that.

There were too many bridge positions on that ship. It was like an f---ing airport lounge in there.

How come Worf never got a cushy couch to sit on?  :timeout:

How come he never got a stone bench to sit on!?

Well, I'm sure he actually preferred to loom menacingly over the bridge anyway.  >:D

(Until he got punched around by the threat of the week, to demonstrate how dangerous they were, thus leading to the story trope of being "Worfed".)

Now this seems hopeful.  The writers must have visited the DesSub Pub in Norfolk.

I'm still royally pissed the show is being locked behind CBS's All-Access bullshit.  With that said, I'll admit watching this brought a lump to my throat in a few different spots...
