Re: Shelby

She doesn't quite work as the intended young Riker because we never saw him that obssessed with his career above all else to that extent (he may have placed his job above his girlfriend at one point but it's hard to imagine the guy we met in season one actively trying to get his superior to resign so he could have their job in the middle of a Federation threatening crisis)

But, she's got more personality in two episodes than Troi and Crusher combined and even with the rough edges had lots of potential. Especially compared to how Riker stagnates after BOBW due to the conflict between it successfully finishing his character arc- He's ready to be Captain!- and the need to keep the actor on the show- But he stays first officer for no real reason!.
