Re: The Replacement First Officer

Given how 'green' Data still was in the early seasons of TNG, even though it had been established that he had been discovered many years earlier and had been through Academy, I doubt he would have been promoted (if a planned promotion) to permanent XO that quickly, especially given his other irreplaceable skills, and his at the same time, his difficulties understanding human nuances and emotional responses.

Again, at the beginning of TNG, Worf was also too green. Had JF wanted out of TNG prior to S3,I think we would have seen a new character, S3 to 6, possibly Shelby, and only at the very end, (if JF had done a Terry Farrell), would Data or Worf have been suitable.
