Re: Why Not A Starfleet Ships Chaplain As A Main Character?
...and add to this a lot of what one can write for a chaplain can also be written for a counselor.
The opposite would also be true, much of what we saw Deanna doing (outside of the mindreading) could have been handled by the ship's chaplain. There has been suggestions that the chaplain would/should have another job aboard the ship.
Have the chaplain and councilor be the same person.
It's easy to support someones beliefs if they are identical to your own.
Tolerating beliefs that you don't personal embrace, or even fully understand, is harder.
