I think Wesley had good posture.

It's one of those twelfth-magnitude regressive temporal implosion thingies.

I believe the correct response was Wesley is the Anakin Skywalker of Trek. He actually wasn't that bad once he grew out of the annoying brat stage. Which was around season 4... when he left. He was actually pretty good in the guest episodes he was in later on.

My major criticism with Wesley is he always sounded like the writers didn't know how to write for a teenager. They didn't wise up until his guest star shots.

Re: Wesley Crusher appreciation thread

I see why people hate Wesley but I didn't really. But maybe it's because I saw all the earlier episodes after the later ones.

It's a little funny how unconcerned he is about how often his experiments nearly kill everyone. I kind of think trapping your own mom in a warp bubble would have long term effects.

LOL, this is about a character, not the fans.

Wesley's tongue is no where near that long.

Maybe if it had been he would have been interesting.

ALSO: SWEATERS!

Even Wil hated some of the things that came out of Wesley's mouth.

Re: Wesley Crusher appreciation thread

I was quite neutral towards the character. But.... 1) He was a top genius, 2) son of one of the senior officers, 3) too close to the captain, 4) first (or one of the first) humans to free themselves from time. If we can accept that last one, the combination of it all makes the whole situation too coincidental to be believable.

Well Wesley was Roddenberry's Mary Sue version of himself.

Neelix was the Jar Jar Binks of the Trek universe before anyone had even heard of Jar Jar Binks.

I thought Wesley was fine once they put him on the bridge and started treating him like a very junior officer. Wil and the writers managed to make him a likeable character after they dumped the Season 1 "boy genius at large" angle.
