Pretty much my argument. You forgot open space to the up and down however. Though some people called me a misogynist just because I think Troi was terrible at driving in the movie forum.
I think Ro was a perfectly fine pilot... I'll give Riker a pass for the shield frequency but not telling Troi to take the helm. There were a dozen other people on the bridge at least one of them in red. Are you telling me none of them were more qualified to fly the ship than the ship's therapist?
Though it always amused me that Picard had Troi take the helm in Nemesis when he decided to ram the Scimitar.
