Why was Pegasus chosen as the vehicle in which TATV would be contextualized? Other than the fact that the episode focuses on Riker, and Frakes was imminently available, I find it an odd choice. First, it's an RDM episode. Second, it's among those episodes that RDM undermined the rectitude of a SF character, something I think Berman would have resisted. Third, I would think that it validates RDM's own opinions about character conflict by drawing upon an episode that he wrote. As far as I can tell, Moore has said nothing about the Enterprise finale, and I doubt he would have expressed an opinion.
