By the end of the year, Riker could have been completely on his own, and Shelby would have been established as Picard's new right hand. I know that Roddenberry wanted to paint a picture of harmony and cohesion, but he could have done that without having Riker rooted in place for so many years.
That would have been great, Shelby would have been the female Number One that Gene had always wanted, but was forced by NBC to abandon after "The Cage".
