I am so sick of that sexist joke about Troi crashing into a planet. She brought the saucer down safely with zero casualties. That's an extraordinary feat that deserves praise.
I have four daughters. Three are a good distance past driving school age. No accidents. No problems. Ditto for Mrs. SicOne. I have had three, count 'em, one-two-three accidents. State Farm got more money from me than my girls put together, I do believe. Relax, skippy; we were just having a chuckle at Troi's expense.

And I hasten to add that IIRC per the TNG TM, the computer handles the re-entry and slide-out. I'd go to my office and double-check it, but it's not really that important.

As you were.

P.S. Picard DID say, "Our casualties were light."...and that's canon dialogue.
