Tasha Yar Presents: "Making Good Career Decisions"

We recently attended a seminar given by Tashar Yar on Making Good Career Decisions. Oddly enough, have an actual career wasnt high on the list. However, these 5 rules were. Enjoy:

http://www.trekspace.org/profiles/bl...ts-making-good

1. If youre not happy at your job, quit in haste! If you later regret the decision, apologize to your boss and ask for your job back. If that doesnt work, another reasonable solution is to get a temp job by creating a rip in the space-time continuum, and dress up and pose as your daughter.

2. Sleep your way to the top: Have a one-night stand with a robot. They really know the mechanics of the whole thing.

3. Treat yourself once in a while! Take well-deserved vacations to exotic places like Hawaii or Vagra II.

4. Make an impression: Get a hair cut like a 1930s paperboy. You wouldnt want people to think youre too attractive.

5. Avoid interoffice politics, insulting co-workers, and angry sludge monsters.

I'm not a fan of Crosby's as I think she's been trying to shoehorn her way back into Trek ever since she left for not being used enough. Yeah, Denise, your career turned out real well since doing that!

He returm in Yesterday's Enterprise was well used and the twist with her daughter in Unifaction and Redemption was also well done, but then she started doing documentaries about the fandom, etc. You can just see she regreted her bone-headed decision to bail out of a TV series during its first season with a looming writer's strike going on.

We defintally understand you're point... But, comming back dressed as a b*tchy romulan is kind of hot. Crosby wins again.

That's awsome! No, I've never read it before, but now I think I will. It is a picture book... right?

I have no doubt that it is a decision that she has regretted for years and years. And years.

That was either a crack at Crosby's carrer, or our carrer. Accurate either way.

Thanks for reading!

Re: Tasha Yar Presents: "Making Good Career Decisions"

Stupid move to leave TNG. What other jobs did she have lined up? I would've stuck it out for at least three years. And if I was getting harrassed, like Gates McFadden was, I still wouldn't have quit. But I would've disconnected his spark plugs everytime he showed up for work.

Crosby did an episode or two of "Red Shoe Diaries", at least one where she was topless and even then she wasn't hot.

DeNiro, really? I could have sworn that was Homer Simpson.

And to keep things on topic, I am still disapointed that Crosby left TNG. I liked Sela too, but it wasn't the same.

Re: Tasha Yar Presents: "Making Good Career Decisions"

I seem to recall reading in a TNG magazine (maybe even the failed "Star Trek: The Magazine") that she was let go because they didn't have the bduget and Gene and/or the studio wanted to focus on Worf. And Gene regretted it.

Being a background character at the time, I imagine his salary went up as soon as he became a regular cast member.
