Tasha.. I'm afraid I can't even dig up enough personality in my (admittedly rusty) TNG memories. I'm afraid all I associate her with is the big yellow sex toy and her absolutely bizarre return as a romulan.
Whut?
Data. She slept with Data, programmed in multiple techniques just like one of those 500 dollar vibrators you can buy. And his batteries never run out.
Yuck.

I didn't want Jadzia to die! But yeah I was kind of WTF when they brought Michael Dorn to DS9 for a "temporary assignment" and then he just never left. I don't think they could have brought him in as a replacement for Kes on VOY cause the two shows were on the air at the same time.
They'd have found a way. In-universe, he could simply have been a Worf-hologram.

I like that desc of him that Timewalker said "Worf That Ate Two Star Trek Shows". LOL.

That's what I thought but really it's no different than a hologram or a conventional toy used today. But I never found Data very appealing.

Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?

I hate it when dead characters come back. If they only do it once, for a very special cause (Like in BSG), it's okay. But if they make it easy for dead characters to magically come back it makes it so character death isn't a real threat, and the jeopardy is reduced in future storylines.

But they totally should have killed Kim instead of getting rid of Kes. Stupid sexiest man list, who the hell would ever find Garrett Wang sexy beyond the standard amount of sexiness necessary to be on TV?

I think he's pretty sexy. Sexiest though.. well given how I usually feel about the people that end up on those lists I probably would promote him to the top.

I dunno, no one minded when they brought Spock back from the dead.

And yet Kirk is still dead

Ah these were the days..

I forgot all about that, having only come out the other end of another Bring Back campaign.

The Borg don't have sex.

They revel in he memories of the trillions of assimilated consciousnesses int heir collective's combined sexual histories.

It's interesting that you bring this up, as I'd argue the same logic holds true for a series that basically establishes the main characters will never die during the series. Half the reason BoBW was as iconic as it was is because at the time there was no guarantee that Picard would be alive and well next season.

Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?

Really? Did people REALLY think that he might never return from the Borg?

Because it's not like TNG was that kind of show prior to this. Yes Tasha died, but that's not the same as the Captain.

Back in 1990, they'd never done anything like that to the lead character on a major mainstream show. It sort of stuck out.

That I did not know. I'm looking at BOBW through too modern eyes I suspect.

The problem with that is, the main cast only really ever dies in Trek if the actor quits
...or if the show is over and Berman and Braga decide to write "a valentine to the fans".
Thanks to JJ that TNG holodeck episode isn't canon anymore.

I'll admit to maniacal laughing when I realized only ENT survived.
