Re: Tasha Yar Presents: "Making Good Career Decisions"

^ To be clear, I'm not unwilling to accept that Roddenberry may have felt that way and made the decision to kill off her character. I just found it interesting that Yar returned relatively quickly during a season in which Roddenberry apparently still had some cursory involvement. But he may have changed his mind by then, or he may not have cared about this "one off" appearance in the same way he would have cared about her returning as a series regular. Or you may be correct that he simply wasn't involved at the point of making "Yesterday's Enterprise."

Yeah, that last part worked out real well.

I can't name another TV character, with some thought, that died, but still kept coming back.
Do you mean a character who dies and keeps coming back or an actor whose character dies, but they come back as a different character? Because I can think of many, many examples of the former.

Re: Tasha Yar Presents: "Making Good Career Decisions"

I believe the phrase "I am Bing Crosby's grandaughter!" was used at least 47 times during her final conversation with management, but yes she quit.

So she would have had Dorn's "star trek" career is she stayed?

The love affair with deanna would have been humourous.

And what foe would have been at the fore of DS9 for Sisko to have said "If there's a blonde with a bad hair cut causing you problems, then you need your own blonde with bad hair cut!"

Then of course i would have been rivitted by her extensive courtship and marriage to Dax.

Though getting drunk at Dee and Will's wedding makes a lot more sense if she's still carrying a torch for Dee?

I wonder if she would have got the lawyering job in VI which Dorn got as hs own grandfather?

I seem to recall reading in a TNG magazine (maybe even the failed "Star Trek: The Magazine") that she was let go because they didn't have the bduget and Gene and/or the studio wanted to focus on Worf. And Gene regretted it.

Being a background character at the time, I imagine his salary went up as soon as he became a regular cast member.
Roddenberry was upset that she was leaving, so had her character killed to avoid any possibility of her coming back.

Haven't you seen Lost? Not to mention Heroes?

In the former, people are dead, but that never stops them from reappearing... in the latter, some people keep dying but don't stay dead!

And one can make a case for Battlestar Galactica, although that was 'came back' rather than 'kept coming back'...
