When WillsBabe sees this she is going to laugh. She and I have been - we'll just call it admiring - the good captain and his first officer for many years now on this board..
Ah, happy days. I even have my very own fanfiction to prove it!

Indeed! The number looks to be around 20, so with 7 seasons, that's roughtly 3 babes bagged a season. Hmmm ... three for a WHOLE season, on average. Seems like your theory has withstood its first field test ...
It's not like I haven't given the topic any consideration over the years, y'know!

I see that! So, tell me, WillsBabe ... who other than Deanna did you like seeing Riker getting next to, if anyone? I thought Mistress Beata was really cute! He should've found some excuse to go back to Angel One for further adventures and to kiss her up some more.

Re: Your favorite Picard love interest?

I did not like Vash at all! Granted, they both shared the love of archeology--but Picard for the museum, and Vash for her own profit.
She was attractive, but she didn't really seem to project much personality, other than that of an untrustworthy "associate" (only for as long as it suited her).

I thought Carmen Davila, killed by the Crystalline Entity, might have been a good romantic interest for Riker. But, obviously, she was killed, trying to save the lives of her fellow-colonists.

Carmen Davila was a little apple-headed, for my tastes, but she was cute. Sure ...

Ones I forgot on Picard's list would be:

Guinan - as mentioned, they were beyond friendship and family and she likes bald men because one helped her once (him)
Lwuxana Troi - she has shown interest in him on mutiple occasions

Ones I remember are:
  1. Deanna Troi
  2. Soren - from "The Outcast", from the androgynous alien race
  3. Etana Jol - from "The Game", where he brings that hypnotizing game back to the enterprise
  4. Carmen Davila - engineer Riker worked with and was to have dinner before Crystalline Entity attacked and killed her and others in "Silicon Avatar"
  5. Beata - Rule of Angel in Angel One, planet where women are dominant, Riker sleeps with her
  6. Ro Laren - in Preemptive Strike, where they lose their memories, the two sleep together and live shorty as husband/wife
  7. Brenna Odell - Irish redhead in "Up the Long Ladder", she seduced him while he washed her feet in his room
  8. Lanel - a nurse in a hospital Riker wants to escape, offers help but he has to make love to her to obtain her cooperation in "First Contact"
  9. Rebecca Smith - tactical officer he dated and was intimate with in "Genesis", they landed on a cactus plant
  10. Yuta - chef to Sovereign Maruk, Riker fell for her but she turned out to be an assasin targeting the other side of the negotiation
  11. Manua Apgar - in a "Matter of Perspective", wife of Dr. Nel Apgar, their contested interest in each other landed Riker in trial and led her husband to try to kill Riker
  12. Lwuxana Troi - announces Riker will become her husband in "Manhunt"
  13. Amanda Rogers - from True Q, this human/Q has a crush on him she acts on
  14. Guinan - while trying to teach Wesley how to act with women in the Dauphin, Riker flirts with Guinan where she quickly shoves wesley to the side to get more
  15. Minuet - as mentioned in Picards list, charmed Riker when the Bynars were working on the Enterprise
  16. Kamala - gave Riker a kiss before he turned her down and her attention moved on
  17. Lal - Data's Daughter gave Riker a kiss too imitating a couple in ten forward
  18. Enterprise - I've alway had the impression he was more in love with the ship than Picard. Turn down 3 promotions to stay on her. In the future saved her from the scrap heap by making her his flag ship as admiral. Was more broken up in the movies when D crash landed than Picard about it. Picard said the Enterprise was a great ship but didn't compare to the Star Gazer in sentiment to Scotty.
  19. Kira Nerys - If you want to include Tom Riker's exploits, she became quite taken with him and while I doubt he slept with her, did seduce her into trusting him in DS9 "Defiant"

I don't remember all. I didn't pay attention in the TNG movies, someone might add some.
Good list!

I'm wondering whether Riker has any recollection of Odan's encounter with Dr Crusher in The Host... By DS9 standards he would have, but the rules were different for the Trill in TNG.

That said, Beverly Crusher is by far my favorite love interest for Picard, followed by Vash.

Re: Your favorite Picard love interest?

By his own admission, Jean Luc Picard was getting women hand-over-fist, before he got stabbed. After that, he grew up, perhaps, a little too much. He even made it with cougars, so there's a lot to mine from, in terms of someone writing Romance Novels based on The Good Captain. If they do, I want to get the job of painting the covers, as I've never done that before. As a Frenchman, Jean Luc Picard is probably no stranger to kink, either, which could inform such a piece and help us to see him in a new and different light ...

You mean like this?

Sorry, they're not paintings but I couldn't resist this.

Re: Your favorite Picard love interest?

>>SNORT!!!<<

"Beauty & the Q" looks like a real cover!!! They're all quite telling, however, of your love of - and devotion to - TNG, in general and the Picard/Vash romance, in particular. It's really very sweet. Although ... I'm almost "afraid" to ask what Q's involvement is. At first, the suggestion seems to be voyeurism. No - don't tell me; I don't wanna know!

((...snicker))

*shakes head* Sweet? Of all the adjectives in all the world, that isn't the one I'd settle on.

Thank you, again. Whenever I'd get stuck with writers block I would go play with photmanips, attempting to make covers or scenes from the stories. The ones I liked ended up on the collages on the index pages of the WN website. I had a really basic, easy to use, program (Photoshop confuses me. My hat is off to anyone who uses it). I have a new program now but I haven't had time to play with it.

No more so than he was in the episode 'Qpid.' Q does make appearances is several of my 'costume romp' stories as WillsBabe so aptly nicknamed them. Although in my story 'Here There Be Q-nicorns' Vash does throw a vase of flowers at Q while yelling, "Get out, you despicable, wretched, intergalactic, peeping Tom!"

Only because you probably know my writing as well as I do.

Re: Your favorite Picard love interest?

"Intergalactic Peeping Tom"?!!! >>SNORT<<

I would always be afraid of that, if Q ever found out who I was! And that he'd not only appear himself, but rope someone in along with him, that I would die a thousand deaths to have them be there. Like, I'd be tapping some sexy lady's sweet ass and - in a moment - there'd be Q with my studd cousin beside him and cuz would be shouting out pointers at me, like "Frakes ... get your ass up higher!!! Sharpen up!"

I'd feel like I was one of those bull elephants mating along the roadside, on the African plains - surrounded by his herd, with other elephants witnessing it and trumpeting in celebration. All this comotion, going on around me ... breaking my concentration.

But I'll tell you something else, I love Photoshop! It's my most favorite thing about using a computer, but you might be surprised to learn that I do not paint with it. I am very old school and painterly, in that sense. I used InDesign, when I worked as a Graphic Designer, which was an experience. But I've had a lot of experience using Adobe products and I highly recommend it. John Knoll, of ILM actually invented Photoshop with his brother, if I'm not mistaken ...

Oh, yeah? And what, uh ... what adjective would you select, then? Go on, be my thesaurus, for a day ...

((...snicker))

I was going to say that I meant "sweet" as in "COOL!" but then I thought ... "would I lie"? So, there you have it. The rest is for you. Select your word and we'll do a side-by-side comparison. Who'd win ... I suspect Yours Truly. I don't care what I win, whenever I'm up for a challenge, as long as I win. Is that a quality that I share with Will Riker, do you think? Our differences are many, though. For example, I would never let my girlfriend call me "Imzadi." What the hell's that? Isn't it enough we're going out? Have to have this big title for it? She should be content that she's mine - that should be enough of a title for her. Am I right? Or, am I RIGHT?!!

Re: Your favorite Picard love interest?

Thanks for the link - that's a neat, little site! And here - look what I found, beside the definition for "satisfy" - as that is the word which best describes what TNG does, overall:
