Re: Was Crusher Troi's boss?

I have always taken it that A councilor would be under the CMO command, however, Picard utilised Deanna not as a councilor but as a Betazoid while on the bridge.

As such, I think she held a dual role on board, due to her unique abilities. Fulfilling a medical role [as we see her councilling numerous crewmen] and as an advisor [due to her unique, racial abilities]

Thus, I assume this unique dual role affords her privelages that other councillors would not have: like sitting on the Bridge. Where people sit isn't important, I'd assume Beverley still outranks her...but has no need to actually be on the bridge, unlike Troi.

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing, all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenberry
