    I mean the actor was handsome, the character was just badly written due to appearing in season 2

    I’ve been waiting 33 years for Okona to return to Star Trek!

    Not.

    Once again demonstrating a very odd view of Star Trek history.

    This thread reminds me about one of the best thread titles on this forum, it said something like: "How outrageous was Okona, really?"

    They should bring back Joe Piscopo, too.

    Now I finally have hope for that Professor John Gill (pre-nazi shenanigans) return I've been hoping for.




    Seriously, this makes no sense.


    Star Trek cartoons........... :rolleyes:

    When they bring back major characters, y'all call it fanwank. When they bring back minor characters, you're unhappy too. :guffaw:

    I'm just surprised it isn't in Lower Decks...

    Yes. Because I want something new. It's all fanwank.

    I’ve never called bringing a major or minor character back “fanwank.”

    But bringing a lame, obscure character from a bottom-tier TNG episode back? Yeah...I’m going to at least question that one.

    The Rocketeer's own Billy Campbell. I liked him in that, my memory files indicate that he was good. Maybe someone in the production just was a fan of his work and wanted him there and if so that's kinda neat.

    He would've made a very swashbuckling Riker!

    Yeah I will be honest here...I never found Jonathan Frakes attractive. In season one he looked like a newscaster and the beard didn't really help either.

    Billy Campbell was a lot more attractive than him, imho. Plus I generally prefer men with brown eyes, so that's probably a huge part of it.

    A story about when he turned 40 everyone realized he was a loser would be neat.

    Nooooooooooo! I was hoping for Roga Danar.

    Seriously though, Okona? I saw the episode the other day. It doesn't improve with age.
