Re: The Worf & Troi romance... what are your thoughts on it?

It was a weak idea, without doubt, but look on the bright side, it did wonders for fixing that awful "Ill advised romance of the week" phenomenon she'd had for far too long

The douche from "The Price"
The geek from Masterpiece Society
The Creep from Man of The People

Although, in her defense, Beverly's passing ship's were far creepier, the metamorphosing man, the symbiont that ends up in Riker, & the god awful Ghost

The ugliest part of the show were everyone's one off romance episodes. Picard's 2 were the only ones that even worked at all

The show needed a healthy budding relationship, or at least they thought so, & they'd exhausted the Riker/Troi & Crusher/Picard angles. They were grasping at straws

I think the only reason Riker didn't interfere with Worf/Troi was he knew Worf could break him in two.

I don't know how you guys can say the Worf/Troi relationship was "last minute." The writers were clearly edging the two characters toward each other as far back as Season 5! Maybe not in an obvious way, but if you look, there's stuff there to support it.

Deanna was lucky to get out while she still could.

Worf's mates all tend to end up as corpses.

Don't mince words, what do you really think?
WB! Woo-hoo! Honestly, I don't say anti-Riker things just to tempt you into a thread, but how nice when it works out that way.

In the future, I'll try to make my statements less subtle.

Oh, and Doubleohfive, you make a good point. I think the signs were there - at least for those who weren't Riker-obsessed.

Oh Worf was using the kid as the chick magnet. Some use out of Alexander after all.

I agree, there were definitely some hindsight clues in there.

That worked most in fistful of Data's when Alex invited counselor Troi to the holodeck. But I am sure he did not use him for that lol

Hey, I resemble that remark! To be fair, I had noticed. I think there was a nice, gradual build up of the Worf/Troi thing.

I agree. I saw it coming too.

I think I would've gone for the Klingon myself. He's got a cute teddy bear thing going on...not to mention that Michael Dorn smile...Wow!
