    I give no figs if any Rikers ever get the captain's chair so I wouldn't be one of those people.

    Do you think that Captain LaForge could have saved the day come the climax of The Best of Both Worlds after Picard checked out?

    I've never complained about Riker's competence.

    He's a very competent arrogant putz.

    5 Ferengi in three 60 year old Klingon battle Cruisers took The Enterprise from him.

    Picard should have stayed a teenager after Rascals.

    I did the math once to work out if the distance between teen Picard and Beverly (measured in years) was less or more that the distance between old Picard and Beverly (measured in years) and the results (not that I recall them) were close?

    (Not close.)

    I was hoping something would happen and Chakotay would make captain. Or anyone else...

    Captain Neelix was a Captain the whole time.

    I'm beginning to suspect that had Riker become a part of the VOYAGER crew, he and Janeway would've undoubtedly become lovers, eventually. To my chagrin! I'm certain that "they" would've served Riker thus ... and Frakes would've just gone right along with it, too, because ... he's an actor.

    I thought he was a director these days?

    Oh look.

    He directed the three episodes of Voyager that Wang wanted most to Direct.

    - Prototype (1996)
    - Parturition (1995)
    - Projections (1995)

    FRakes choreographed Neelix and Tom's food fight.

    Awesome.

    If Riker had been on the bridge, we would have had endless scenes consisting of his crotch near Paris' face.

    You're talking like his crotch doesn't following us around the room like Elvis on Velvet.
