Re: Geordi & Data

I always loved the relationship between Riker and Troi. They just seemed to want the other to be happy, either with the two of them friends or as something more.

IIRC, there is an episode where Riker says something like that to someone. An empath on board the Enterprise said that he would make a move on Troi to piss Riker off and then he said something along the lines of 'You've read me wrong. If you could make Deanna happy, that would make me happy'.

I also really love the friendship and mutual respect between Riker and Picard. One of my favourite parts with those two is the Captain Picard Day scene, with Riker making fun of the Captain, but not going too far with it.

That would be from "The Price". I watched that one last week. I, too, love the interplay between Riker and Troi. They always seem the best of friends, and know each other so well, but at the same time, you just know deep down something more is desired by both of them.

Oh, yes!

I just watched that episode the other day, and my favorite part of that scene is where Picard says "They seem to have a rather exaggerated impression of me", and Riker waves the little Captain Picard puppet's arm and says "I don't know, I think the resemblance is rather striking. Wouldn't you agree, number one?" in this terrific Captain Picard voice.

That's the one I was thinking of. In the serious moments, they play off each other so naturally. Some of the unspoken stuff between them is the best.

Re: Geordi & Data

I always loved Geordi and Data's friendship. One of my favorite things about trek is the genuine friendships we've seen between characters, like Geordi/Data, Picard/Crusher and Bashir/O'Brien.

Re: Geordi & Data

Agreed. I believe it gave credence to the idea that they're shipmates who have served alongside one another for a long time. For example, I like how Worf became more comfortable with them over time.

Re: Geordi & Data

I think TNG is one of those rare examples of a tv show where if you put any two characters together, they make a good double act.

With the exception of Dr Craptastic from season 2. Really did not like her.

Really? Oh, I love Dr. Pulaski. She was a great foil for Data and a sister in arms for Worf. She also clashed with Picard, which was a nice change of pace up to that point.

They certainly spent a lot of time in some first season episodes giving each other goofy looks and nods while seated at conn and ops.

I actually saw a doc named Pulaski this morning. He stuck needles in my arm and then shot electric current through them. And he had as much personality as a phone book.
