Ok here goes, The writers really screwed up Deanna Troi IIRC from TNG Companion She was supposed to be more intelligent than most of the crew. Intelligence Wise: Deanna + Data = Spock As well the Deanna character was also supposed to be used to explore what it means to be human as well as Data. Deanna was supposed to be a Telepath but during the writing of Encounter At Farpoint she was downgraded to Empath she was supposed to be 1/4 human changed to 1/2. Turned into Just Eye Candy. One thing I'm GLAD they did change Betazoid Females were supposed to have 4 of them where would the other 2 So what would you have done with Deanna Troi?
