    It's implied in All Good Things that Geordi eventually marries Dr. Leah Brahms. Given how creepy and awkward Geordi was around women I think it's possible he married the holographic Leah and not the real one. The kids are probably holograms too.

    Just a thought.

    I don't think so.

    Maybe she had a midlife crisis and skeevy Geordi was there to pick up the pieces.

    Oh god that sounds awful.

    I do not think he was "creepy", I know this is vogue currently. But plainly Geordi was infatuated and had crush on Dr. Brahms. He tried to connect with her. Let us not forget, what it was like to be in love with someone. How it was to feel you may never be in the same room with, but have a robust fantasy on how a romantic relationship with her would be and what an ideal companion she would be. Even just in his heart and mind.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    A midlife crisis where she joins star fleet under an assumed name, and almost takes over the government?

    I suppose they routinely allow hologram versions of real people to become the director of the Daystrom institute, & their children to apply to the academy, or that they'd know enough real people at Starfleet medical, such that Geordi would be able to find out about Picard's syndrome, or that Picard himself would know Geordi's kids personally. :rolleyes:

    What a bunch of insulting nonsense imho. It's not just implied he married her, it's outright stated & substantiated. If insubordinate & self-righteous Beverly could change enough to become a ship captain, It's just as possible Geordi could change enough that his marriage is plausible too. Sorry if it doesn't sit as well as a narrative that better suits your sensibilities :p

    Get over yourself, you jerk. It was clearly a tongue in cheek thread:rolleyes:

    ...Why would Geordi LaForge need to change in order to become Geordi Brahms? He's bad at dating new women, which is obviously a big plus from the POV of his wife once they hitch up. But he may be an ideal husband and father in other respects as well. It's not as if we would have seen him in revealing circumstances in this respect, for obvious reasons.

    The novels did pick up on this. In the Genesis Wave books Brahm's husband is killed leaving her a widow. Then Geordi meets her again in TNG novel "Indistinguishable From Magic" and they do begin a relationship but eventually they part ways (they do meet again later at some point).

    Currently Geordi is dating a counselor on board the ship (or is it one of the doctors--I can't remember offhand, it's been sooo long since the last TNG novel). He is still a bit shy around women but his relationships with Brahm's and Harstad have helped him be more secure.

    You say that but it's not always clear. In my short time here, I've seen enough batshit crazy theories proferred in a completely serious way that it's not as easy as you might think to spot the tongue in cheek. I thought you were being serious.

    Indeed. And a post that ends with "Just a thought." is certainly inviting itself to be taken seriously. "I think it's possible" is also the sort of thing one says when expressing serious consideration of the idea.

    What if Geordi was a hologram in All Good Things and the real Leah Brahms married a holographic Geordi :lol:

    Wasn't she already married? I guess people still get divorved in the future ;)

    As far as being awkward around people you see as datable...common can't we relate to that? Once you find your person the comfort is there and the awkward goes away, or the awkward is something you love about them too.

    Agreed. People also throw the word "creepy" around way too much these days. Just because you're awkward or shy towards a person you are attracted to doesn't automatically make you a creep.

    Exactly! I was so awkward and "creepy" when i got back into dating. My boyfriend told me that on our first date he thought i was a total goober and the most rediculous awkward thing he had ever seen. That was two yeard ago and we're talking about marriage and kids now. ;)

    Perhaps not. But Geordi could have avoided all this mess if he'd just remembered to delete the Leah hologram before the real Leah visited the ship. If he's too slow on the uptake for that, he deserves everything he gets.

    It does raise a point, though...exactly why was the real Leah such a jerk? Geordi updated the hologram with her most recent personality profile, so they shouldn't have been that different...

    Well, you have to remember that she was hostile and spoiling for a fight the moment she beamed on board. I think the first words she said when meeting Geordi was something like "so you're the one messing up my engines." frankly, she was a bitch.
    Finding the holoprogram after that certainly didn't help. Geordi's biggest problem was expecting that just because he got along famously with holo-Leah, he would get along famously with real Leah.

    Yeah he seemed to have some unreal expectations of her. He was expecting to pick up where he left off with the hologram. From her point of view I would be super creeped out if I found out some guy had a holoprogram of me that he was in love with.

    Geordi and Leah as good friends - yeah. But as a couple. No. Halstad might be a better choice.
