Re: Who Should Be the Next Captain of the Enterprise?

If Worf became captain, could Geordi fill the posts of XO and chief engineer simultaneously?

Imho, because of the sheer life expectancy Humans have in the 24th century, I believe Picard is physically and mentally fit enough to command Enterprise for another two decades at least. So, when he leaves will depend on his and Beverly's family plans, which may or may not include settling down and ambassadorship. Beverly herself might still have career interests as well.
If Geordi became XO, I imagine he wouldn't have time for the Chief Engineer role as well. Taurik would probably take over as Chief. He's been Geordi's assistant chief for years..
