I have one question about Ree's craziness.
I don't buy the fact that he could "kidnap" Troi, Ogawa and a shuttle with it being noticed on sensors (which is usually what happens). I mean someone would have seen him gone AWOL and tried to stop him. Granted, he was biting people along the way but no one could have stunned him or had a force field raised? Seemed a bit off.
Also, if Riker understood why Ree did what he did couldn't he have forget about the hearing and just give a small reprimand? I mean this is the 2nd time he went insane around Troi after all.
As for the sex and name of the baby: Was it left up to you or was that already planned early on?
