Re: I hate her so much I skip pages with her on it.

I just love how people who hate things tend to need to announce it to the world where as people who like or just indifferent don't tend to. It's almost like they need to validate there feelings and make sure others feel the same.

Just for the record, I like Chen, she has a personality set that I as a younger man was drawn to.

Re: I hate her so much I skip pages with her on it.

I think it was a mistake to tone Chen down, She's the only new character with a distinct personality on the E-E. They killed off the others (Choudury, Leybenzon). The current ones, Smrhova, Faur, Elfiki, Konya even Taurik have little to set them apart from the crowd. I would have loved to have seen more of that female Klingon conn officer lonemagpie introduced in Indistinguishable from Magic (Kat?) or a character ported over from New Frontier. I could read a whole novel about just a session for captain Picard with Hugh Cambridge.

Well, it was always my intent that she would be "toned down" somewhat from where she started -- that she'd begin as an unruly and unfocused junior officer who hadn't yet learned the discipline to develop her full potential, and that Captain Picard's mentoring would teach her that discipline and put her on the right path. Although she'd still retain her spontaneity and wit and lighten him up a little in return.

QFT.

My response to the OP is "okay, just skip the pages as your actions don't have any impact on me at all and sharing your feelings in such a manner does not really make for conversation."

Agreed. I love that Trys's name is very similar to my sn, great coincidence that.

Re: I hate her so much I skip pages with her on it.

So if the OP skips pages with the character in them, how will he know if the character has undergone growth and change?

I do like T'Ryssa and I also like Abby.

The one I didn't care for was the Vulcan counselor on the E-E.

Don't bring facts into this, we are skipping pages here! First impressions are all that matter! That's why I skip every page about Picard that Gallic nativist!

I would be quite happy if T'Ryssa was re assigned and never spoken of again!

Re: I hate her so much I skip pages with her on it.

I like Chen and have enjoyed watching her mature and grow over the years, a bit like what we got with some of the characters on the show. I enjoy every scene she pops up in, especially her bridge scene in Cold Equations.

Re: I hate her so much I skip pages with her on it.

I kinda liked the notion that in the enlightened, tolerant, "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations" 24th century, more than one personality type can exist.

If the Treklit writers are feeling ambitious, maybe one day they can add a third personality type. That's probably going a little too far for most Trekkies though.

Not a big fan of her, she's a bit too bubbly for me.

This has come up before, I'm of the "and then she was shot in the face with a space-uzi and her corpse eaten by wolves" camp.
