Re: Should K'Ehleyr have replaced Troi?

Since i like Troi, I wouldn't want K'Ehleyr to replace Troi. However, it would have been cool if, in an alternate dimension, she had been a crew member, maybe even a helm officer or in one where Worf wasn't around, she could've been the security chief. I can see either position working for her.

Re: Should K'Ehleyr have replaced Troi?

Even though she often got on my nerves at times with her touchy-feely manner, I still like Troi well enough, and wouldn't have wanted her to be replaced.

I actually would have preferred to see more of Dr. Selar, a Vulcan medical doctor which Suzie also played once on TNG.

Re: Should K'Ehleyr have replaced Troi?

i actually agree that Guinan would have been a more appropriate counselor, than even Troi.

But i think K'Ehlehr had a place on Enterprise...maybe diplomatic attache, or some such excuse. i could see her as a recurring role like Keiko O'Brien, brought out as appropriate, but not needed every episode.

Not sure about Troi, but maybe Tasha?

One of my "complaints" is that ultimately, Guinan did more counseling than Troi by the time it was all said and done. Look at episodes like Suspicions, Ensign Ro, The Best of Both Worlds, Redemption, Family and hell, in Hollow Pursuits she treats Barclay better than Troi does. Not really a complaint, because Whoopi Goldberg did so well with the role, but she made Troi even more useless than she already was. Guinan did a better job justifying the role of counselor on a ship than any actual counselor has.

Re: Should K'Ehleyr have replaced Troi?

I don't want to think about character substitution, although I never really found Deanna Troi tridimensional enough. But the OP is right: K'Ehleyr showed immense depth and potential for development in the span of one single episode. It's a shame she hadn't more chances to reappear as a recurring character, much like Garak or Q.

Besides, Suzie Plakson was the hottest Vulcan ever:

Re: Should K'Ehleyr have replaced Troi?

She was a good actor for star trek. I like the story as-is, because of the sheer awesome of Worf taking off his badge and getting down to business.
Reprising a Vulcan would have been fun though. One that really offends Troi, and often the rest of the crew, but sometimes in agreement with Worf.

Troi was simply a bland character that was rarely used well.
She wouldn't have been bland if they didn't bring in Guinan. I love Whoopi Goldberg and I loved Guinan, but that was a big whopping mistake.
