Re: O'Brien always gets the shaft?

And just remember O'Brien was there from the start of TNG, not to bad character development from what was basically an extra with a few lines.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.

Is there some kind of inside joke among the writers that makes them always screw O'Brien over?

-He gets wrongly tried by the Cardassians, gets stripped, gets a tooth ripped out, and almost gets executed.

-As a clone, everyone treats him like crap, his daughter hates him, and he gets killed.

-He gets put in a "mind prison" for 20 years, kills someone in cold blood while there, and has to live with the PTSD afterwards.

I'm sure I'm missing some others as well. I just feel so bad for the guy...
The writers were not kind for sure.

Re: O'Brien always gets the shaft?

What makes it even worse for O'Brien is the fact his love ones where often involved. Geordi suffered sure, but it was just him. Keiko and his daughter made it that much more painful.

I presume most of you have seen Colm's response to his suffering character.

Maybe he didn't watch the show, so he thought everyone was getting the same treatment.
