You mean like Picard did? Hardly legitimate there. What's good for the goose...

I was the one defending Picard, not Christopher. There's no inconsistency in Christopher's arguments.

Re: whatever happened to these characters?

Christopher is the one saying that people should respect the system of legitimate presidential succession.

It's funny how something sudden;y becomes acceptable if one of the hero crew does it but if another character does the exact same thing then it's a moral outrage.

Pulaski was in a neat two-part DS9 comic, "The Cancer Within", set during DS9's fourth season.

I have never been a fan of Pulaski but I am curious about what happened with her. I would love to see what is happening with the SCE gang.

Re: whatever happened to these characters?

They do appear in A Singular Destiny and Gomez and one other character who I can't remember right now, make brief appearances in Indistinguishable From Magic (although this is apparently no longer part of the novelverse continuity).

Yes. And he never said Picard's actions in A Time to Heal were acceptable.

Re: whatever happened to these characters?

I'm into season 7 of my TNG rewatch and i've come across the Iyaarans. Have they ever been discussed/featured in any of the lit?

They're the assholes from Liasons (s7e2) with strange ideas when it comes to diplomatic contact..

One shows up in Shards and Shadows, in the Guinan/Stargazer story. Other than that, I can't recall anything. Although the RPG materials fleshed them out a bit, even if the novels haven't.

Am I the only one that actually wants to find out how parises squares is played and what makes the game so dangerous?

No, you're not. I wouldn't mind learning more about it.

It's strange it hasn't been fleshed out yet, actually.

I've always wondered whatever happen to Marissa Flores, the girl that was stuck in the turbolift with Picard in TNG "Disaster".
Has she joined Starfleet and became a real "Number One" by now . . . or at least has 2 pips on her uniform?
Actually, it's funny you should ask that... There is a truly legendarily awful series of fanfic which are, almost fetishistically, centred around this character and including almost every child character ever featured on Star Trek TNG.

Information on this is available at tvtropes, including links to where one might access the stories themselves if one is posessing strong curiosity of the sufficiently morbid variety.

I read about two pages of one story before totally losing my patience with it.
