    Yes, if we go by actors' ages, Brophy himself is too young to be credible in the role.
    But in my head canon, humans in the 24th century age a little more slowly than we do.

    There's no real need to resort to head canon for that: just look at Picard himself Vs. the actor who plays him.

    I'm deeply offended that BriBro wasn't cast to
    play Q in season 2.

    Brian Brophy once asked for a submarine sandwich with everything. The deli served him an Ohio-class strategic missile sub with 24 fully-loaded Trident II D-5 missiles.

    Brophy flicks Q away.

    Q says, "FAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK"

    Four out of six Brophys can't defeat the other two in combat yet still somehow come out victorious.

    Four out of five Brophys recommend Brophy for their Brophys who chew Brophys.

    Four out of five Brophys are dentists who make recommendations.

    Four out of five Brophys actually represent five out of one.

    Maybe Ales is actually Bruce Maddox Jr. ?

    But only one is needed. One Brophy. The rest are to duplicate his awesomeness in other universes. :)

    Will Brophy ever get a Sisphy?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Took me a minute.

    I kept thinking Sisyphus. The boulder would insist on rolling itself up the hill while Brophy enjoyed a cool drink in the shade.

    No no no no no. Using an 80-ish actor instead would make Bruce Maddox's affair with Agnes Jurati, his former student and half his age, even more off-putting. No offense to John Ales, but if Brian Brophy had returned to the role, no one (and I do mean no one) would wonder why Agnes jumped her prof. Then again if Brophy had been cast, no one would believe Agnes wouldn't be all over Maddox again. Actually Bjayzl would have kept Maddox for herself instead of trading him. Then again, let's be honest, after 14 years or so isolated with Bruce and the kids on Coppelius, Altan would never willingly let him offplanet. Wink wink nudge nudge, know what I mean? Because Brian Brophy goes.

    Anyway, recast solved. It was absolutely needed for plausibility of PIC plotlines. Say no more.

    Brian Brophy is back! On my screen, as I'm currently watching The Measure of a Man.

    Don't let it be forgot
    That once there was a spot
    For one brief shining moment that was known
    As *Camelot.


    *A Brian Brophy Production.

    On second thought, let's not go to the Brian Brophy thread. 'Tis a silly place.
