Geordi & Data
 
I was watching TNG on Netflix Instant Watch (yay!), and I can't help but notice all the times Geordi & Data wax philosophical, or talk about physics, or engineering in general, and I think to myself that I could listen to these two talk to one another all day. Their characters mesh so well, that I just find it enjoyable to watch and listen to them.

Does anyone else ever get that feeling? It doesn't have to be with Geordi & Data, it can be anyone from the TNG crew.

Geordi and Data are the Frog and Toad of Star Trek.

No.

Tin Man and Scarecrow. Worf's the lion.

Do any of the TNG crew give you that same feeling? That you just really enjoy it when they get together? As I mentioned in the original post about Geordi and Data, I believe it was in "Birthright", where they're talking about Data's dreams, and I just want Data to go on and Geordi to give his feedback, because I find their viewpoints so interesting.

Is it a bit silly because they're characters in a TV show? Not at all. It is through these characters that we can relate our ideas, and I just find the back and forth between Data and Geordi to be fascinating. I love the character interaction moments between Data and Worf as well, when they were discussing matters of faith in "Rightful Heir." Just a great moment between two very different people.

Yeah, Data & Picard. Long or short, their personal scenes are always enjoyable, but yes, Data & Geordi had one of the most natural rapports of any of the crew

They certainly spent a lot of time in some first season episodes giving each other goofy looks and nods while seated at conn and ops.

True. Speaking of rapport, I watched "Attached" last night, and remembered how much I was a Picard/Crusher fan. While I was always rooting for Jean Luc in his various romantic adventures, I always liked it best when those romantic encounters involved Beverly. It felt more "natural" to me.

Absolutely! Couldn't you just see Geordi going over to rake Data's leaves and then Data going over to rake Geordi's leaves. Ans then when the wind blows them around again, they each come home and decide that they will have to rake their own leaves the next day :)
I love Geordi and Data

Great work on the part of the casting director and the writers. Actually, I think the whole TNG crew meshed perfectly (particularly after Worf became Security Chief and Geordi became Chief Engineer).

That was the best thing about TNG: everybody on board seemed like they were friends. A ship of misfits that somehow came together like a family.

^ I can agree with that!
