I always forget about that gem of a boon in Riker's service record. Lol

- Lost ship to Ferengi pirates

Didn't they transport the crew to the planet's surface, to be used as slave labor as well? Hallmark day in the career of one Cmdr. William T. Riker

One of my favorites from season 6. Especially when Picard (in junior form) throws a tantrum demanding to see his "father" Riker.

And that conversation between Ro and Guinan about being a kid again.
Yeah, the stuff about being 12 again was great. I like to think the only reason Picard went back was because he saw what happened when Will was in command.

The fun part is that this takes place right before "Chains of Command." Suddenly Necheyev's decision to put Jellico in charge for the duration makes a lot more sense. You can just see her reading the after-action report on this debacle, seeing the plans for the Cardassian mission, and saying, "Nope, nope, nope."

If I were Picard, I would have put my foot down and said, "If you can't take me seriously because I look younger, then you need to find a career path that doesn't involve strange-looking aliens and weekly encounters with weird spatial phenomena."

Is having to take orders from a captain morphed into a 12 year old any weirder than having to deal with a fellow officer's symbiont being in a new host? I think not

^ And what always bugged me even more was that Data even reacted like he had a hard time accepting that it was Picard. To Data, it should be just another interesting scientific phenomenon they encountered, and once he was told it was Picard, it shouldn't have been difficult for him to accept that.

I agree with that. When Stargate did the same thing, they did have trouble dealing with O'Neal as a child at first, but then when he started talking like O'Neal they fell into line. If Picard is capable of commanding respect as a captain he can do it as a child. And there must be some races out there whose adults look like human children.
