What episode is this jpg of Picard in?
"Timescape" when Picard is doing an impression of the speaker of the lecture he attended.

Re: Did You Ever Notice Riker Doing This?

I'm told that the technical term for how Riker sits down is "Sitfucking."

Him putting his leg on Data's console and hunching is so he can stay in frame. He is pretty tall, after all.
As for the whole foot on Data's console posture, Riker did it most often but both Picard and Data were seen doing it as well. In either case, it earned Riker the nickname "Stinknuts" here on this very BBS a few years ago. I made this thread bomb back then.

Re: Did You Ever Notice Riker Doing This?

I feel like it was meant to show he was a "physical," athletic type guy. And a little bit of "just because I can" swagger. I was a kid when Next Generation first came on, and I remember doing it in school with... mixed results.

Well, you have to realize that Jonathon is very tall, 6'4", but he towered over me, at 6'2" (Musta been those boots) and those chair backs were kinda small, and every time that I sat in them, I always looped my leg over the back, just like Riker did!
Did you ever see Frakes sit like that on "normal size" chairs?

The only thing I've noticed about Riker is that he seems to be the most common character to appear in avatars here.
Surely not!

Re: Did You Ever Notice Riker Doing This?

Since I don't think anyone's said it yet...if Stewart's habit of tugging on his Starfleet tunic was dubbed "The Picard Maneuver", then surely Frakes's sitting style must be called "The Riker Maneuver".

And FWIW, this thread gave me the impetus to actually try this for the first time ever in my office chair today. Considering I'm a guy in his mid-40s of medium height, it went surprisingly well...but I wouldn't want to push my luck by doing it regularly....

Or, you could keep practicing until you get perfect at it maybe? You'll be the life and soul at this year's office christmas party!

Re: Did You Ever Notice Riker Doing This?

Riker and Deanna's relationship suffered because he was focused on career.

Or, put another way, Riker neglected Deanna because what he really wanted was the -D.

Three pages & no mention of Riker's penchant for trying to ram through doors with his forehead (or, from S5 on, fivehead)? Tch.

Heh, the way he flings his leg around like getting on a horse, makes me think that Frakes had this song going on in his head at the time: "I wanna be a cowboy... and you can be my cowgirl!"

That is what he does when he has something very, very serious to pursue. Sometimes he has to go into the Ready Room to talk Picard out of an away mission, or express displeasure about a female or transporter twin competitor. Sometimes he is pursuing an alien hottie. Sometimes he is just confused.

He's like the bull in a bullfight. Toro, Riker!

It's just a very manly manner of sitting down.

Riker leads with his chin, until Beverly makes fun of his beard in "Quality of Life", then he begins leading with his forehead, since his hairline isn't receding and he has nothing to compensate for there. Unless he feels the need to mount a desk chair.
