Re: I like Tasha Yar.
Another Tasha Yar fanboy here! I would have loved for her to stay. As others have (more eloquently) suggested, her background would have provided a lot of intriguing story possibilites. And since I never really was a fan of Worf, I would have preferred to have her as the chief of security for the whole run of the series. Plus, I loved Denise Crosby in the part.

Garak: »My dear doctor, they're all true.«
Bashir: »Even the lies?«
Garak: »Especially the lies.«
