Re: Was Crusher Troi's boss?

I'm trying to remember if there is any scene in which Crusher addresses Troi in any way that would identify her as a subordinate in her department. None come to mind.

I always pictured Troi as having a busy schedule while providing psychiatric sessions to the crew as well as having a substantial role in helping Picard do his "homework" prior to any diplomatic engagment.

I don't remember Troi ever calling Crusher or Riker by "Sir".

Re: Was Crusher Troi's boss?

My opinions on this would be that Crusher would technically outrank Troi. I think the original premise of Troi's posistion was that the Enterprise was one of the first starships to carry civillian family members on board so they wanted a counselor on board to help with any psychological issues that would occur. Picard had her on the bridge in more of an advisor's posistion than anything. It never really made a ton of sense why she was on the bridge so often, but I suppose Picard used her almost like an extra set of senors. She'd sense some kind of emotional disturbance and could report it. In later seasons I think they wanted to give her more of a focus on being an officer with a specialty rather than a civillian on the senior staff.
