Re: Examples of times Troi was used well in the series?

I may be wrong, but I always thought that Gene Roddenberry came up with Deanna Troi, and he, not being a very experienced television writer, didn't realize that her powers were a nightmare to write for convincingly, and that you could only write two scenes where she's using her natural empathy: one in which she states the obvious and one in which she solves everything instantly.
