Perhaps she is taking Picard and Beverly down the road we've watched being set brick by brick of them leaving Starship life and settling down with their family?
If they go that route, I think it would be cool if Worf was made Captain of the Enterprise
If that happened I think I would completely stop reading TNG books. Have become less and less interested in them in recent times with the changes to the crew, and getting to the stage where I will no longer have a desire to read TNG books.
I'm already halfway out the door.
