    Well, there was a very brief shot of Wesley in uniform in the final film, which is why ATFW,ATFP needed to explain it; but the part where he had dialogue about being back in Starfleet (and about to join Riker's Titan crew, IIRC) was deleted.

    While he didn't appear, I'm sure one of the books mentioned that he had been to visit his brother?

    And didn't he also pop up for Jean Luc's and Beverly's wedding?

    Or also perhaps read the novelization.

    Note that Wesley is not visible in the movie unless you're seeing it in widescreen. He's down one end of the table. The table is shown from both directions but in the TV aspect version of the DVD, he's cropped off, confusing people who see Wheaton's name in the closing credits.

    Any ideas or bets on what that might be/

    The human Reaper that Commander Shepard fought in 2185. Should have checked to make sure it was actually dead!

    ^I always thought they would download Data's personality into B4 and make him into a new Data. One never knows?

    You've not read "Countdown", the TNG comic prequel to JJ's movie?

    Hehehehe.

    Aw, so I take that to mean that Cold Equations is going to eliminate Countdown from novelverse continuity? I rather liked that story...

    I don't think Data would have uploaded his memories and such into B-4 if he believed they would overwrite B-4's own programming and essentially kill him.

    "Countdown" was a comic mini-series. It's not necessarily in future novel continuity.

    Maybe the programming blended (rather like the recent blending of my two laptops' memories) and the "Countdown" Captain Data is the B-4 that happily embraced the gradual integration of Data memories?

    But then wouldn't he be Captain B-4, not Data?
