Besides, it seemed to be an unwritten rule that TNG couldn't have a regular in an actual relationship.
My pet peeve exactly. It's like the show was written by people who'd never had a serious relationship in their lives and didn't know how
to have one. (Which probably describes most people in the entertainment industry).
K'Ehleyr was a fantastic character and Suzi is a charismatic actress who is a delight to watch. They missed the boat by not having bothe K'Ehleyr and Dr. Selar as regular recurring characters.
