Wow! Thank you, Trent
, for that detailed and and thoughtful review. As you read through the thread, I think you'll find that some of the points you've raised were addressed (especially the myriad issues related to Troi's pregnancy).
I actually agree with a number of your criticisms; in retrospect, I too am disenchanted with how the Enterprise
-E story arc turned out in general, and Picard's arc in particular. Mistakes were made with the Troi storyline, mostly because medicine is not my forte.
As you continue reading the trilogy, I will look forward to reading more of your thoughts about it.
