Re: Was Beverly a waste of space?
The one thing I can't forgive Beverly for was spawning Wesley. Other than that I quite liked her as a character, she was a strong-willed woman who let her thoughts be heard.
I am fine with that. But why she had to allow him to go on the Enterprise? She should have sent him to Starfleet Academy, urging him to befriend Nick Locarno and do as many Kolvoord Starburst maneuvers as necessary to save the universe.
