Dating Deanna has its consequences when Riker is the captain
Except that Worf didn't date Deanna in the simulation. That happened only in the seventh season.

I wonder why Worf was at the ops position? Did he accomplish nothing in sixteen years?

Maybe he was receiving the same kind of career counseling as Harry Kim.

Re: In General

Part of the reason I personally enjoy TNG so much is because the episodes are varied. Each time the crew encounters a species, we learn more and more about it, and then sometimes we are left with loopholes/cliffhangers/etc. It keeps me coming back, even though I've already seen the episodes. I do have to say, even though this wasn't one of your options, I really enjoy the episodes that elaborate on Data. He is one of my favorite characters from TNG, and I find him quite adorable!

Nah, Worf was actually promoted twice over the shows and movies.

Yes, but we were talking about the simulation in which he seemingly made no advancements in rank over a sixteen year period.

Re: In General

Why would the best Ferengi episode be the one in the hypothetical future where they conformed to the Federation?

It's true the Ferengi were really badly written in TNG. I thought Captain's Holiday worked, and I enjoyed Quark's brief appearance in Gambit.

Which didn't strike the real Riker as odd at all. Not only had Worf and Data only been promoted once, but Crusher and LaForge were in the same positions at the same rank. So this must be standard for starship command crews, or else Riker would have had trouble buying the scenario.

You want a hi-tech holodeck fantasy world created by a 16 year old alien kid to make sense?

Re: In General

What? The kid's fantasy setting made complete sense to Riker. He didn't see through anything until Min made an appearance. So it made sense to more than just the kid!

Re: In General

You look at the Ferengi involvement in TNG and a lot of the episodes they are in just downright suck. I mean look at the list of crappy episodes:

The Last Outpost
The Price
Captain's Holiday
Menage a Troi
Rascals
Suspicions
Force of Nature

Even in Chain of Command the weakest part of that show was the ferengi in the bar.

Only Chain of Command, Peak Performance & The Perfect Mate, and to a lesser extent The Battle, are really the only good episodes of TNG with ferengi involvement (and the ferengi involvement in those shows is quite small).

^ You missed Unification. I thought that was a good use of a Ferengi too.
