Been watching the HD versions of season 1 and 2 on Syfi and I am finding how Geordi had many interesting parts which I really did not take notice about the many times I've watched the show.
Season 1 Geordi commands the ship, splits the ship in two, gets to pilot the ship even being vision impaired, uses he unique vision capabilities to add the away missions. I could be biased and forgotten what Geordi had be doing in the rest of the seasons but he did seem to have a more active role in Season 1. Ok Season 2 he gets promoted to chief engineer and season 3 Lt.Cmdr but it just seems to be less as his role is spread over more episodes. If that makes any sence?
