Thankyou for the answers!
I have just rented the entire TNG over the last month or so, however, about 12 episodes would not play, as i have a 'sensitive' laptop!
I remember an Admiral telling Deanna to wear formal uniform on the bridge & she seemed to, from then on, wear her uniform most of the time.
Thanks again :-)
I believe that was Captain Edward Jellico in Chain of Command. Great actor. Lousy Captain! Was a real pain in the neck in Total Recall as well....
Don't forget Ronny Cox was also a memorable villain in Robocop. And if you haven't seen Deliverance, he's terrific in that great flick, too! -- RR

As I said, I hope someone slipped some extra strength laxative in his coffee, I would have.

Yeah, he put in a really great performance in that one. I also think it's probably the best work Burt Reynolds ever did. It's a shame that the movie is only known for the famous "squeal like a pig" scene, because it really is a very good movie with a lot to say about the concept of "man vs. nature".

Quite true on all counts, Ward. It's also known for the dueling banjos sequence. The whole crux of the movie is man vs. nature, and Lewis (Reynolds) fancies himself at one with nature. A harrowing movie! John Boorman, the director, also helmed Excalibur. Reynolds' other best work was, IMHO, in Sharky's Machine. One of his costars in that flick was Bernie Casey, who later played Sisko's friend Cal Hudson, the Maquis leader in DSN. -- RR

Diana?

Deanna.

Bev wore standard duty uniform throughout the series, but she often added a doctor's lab coat over it. 'Cause she's the doctor.

She also wore it for a time to disguise her real life pregnancy.
See, I did not know that. I'll have to pay attention. What season was that?
Her pregnancy was throughout season 4. I know that she was heavily pregnant in the episode The Host, I remember Gates saying that they hid her growing midsection by making the lab coat bigger. There is a screencap from the episode QPid where you can see that Gates is heavily pregnant. If I time to find it I can post it if you like...

You're right about dueling banjo's, it's probably an even more iconic scene. Ned Beatty with his pants around his ankles squealing for a toothless man is pretty unforgettable though. Good call on Sharky's Machine. Great flick. By the way, how could John Boorman make movies like Deliverance and Excalibur and also make a huge turd like Exorcist II? Doesn't make sense.

Sharkey's Machine is one of my favorite cop movies. Rachael Ward in full bloom was breathtaking!

Jellico was a Godsend, for putting Troi in a standard uniform. I agreed with him wholeheartedly. He was a badass Captain.
I say BOOO! to Jellico. I hope someone slipped him some a triple dose of laxative in his coffee for that.
I have to disagree. Jellico, while definately a ball-buster, was a great captain.

To stay on topic, I like Troi's assets.

I thought Bevs uniform was offcial, and I loved it when Jellico told Troi to put on her uniform, she looks alot better in that uniform than she ever did in her greyish purple thing....

Yeah, Troi wore the uniform well. If only he told her to go back to wearing the skant.

Troi did look better in a uniform, and if I remember correctly Jellico said he wants formality on the bridge. So while doing her duties to the crew in her office, she could wear whatever she wants. That's how I understood his order.

I don't know if I'm missing a history between the two of you or not or if this was some kind of in-joke between friends. If not, it's wiser to keep personal snipes at other posters out of this forum. Thanks!
