Re: Is it smart to have families on the Enterprise-D?

I think GR's intention to do a series built around exploration and establishing peaceful relations with "Strange worlds and new civilizations" is just not as practical for a weekly show. Griding out shows about peaceful exploration for 22 weeks per season leaves me with visions of "Code of Honor" and "Royale". I wonder if Q's appearance warning Picard that space is dangerous and if you can't take a bloody nose you should stay home wasn't someone's rejection of GR's dreamy idealism.

I gotta agree, I keep thinking the same thing as Swede...what do you tell the kids all those times they were on the brink of destruction along with the Enterprise and how many counselors would you need to keep them from growing up as traumatized wrecks?
