As even production people will admit, season one TNG had no idea what it was doing in terms of the cast. There were too many actors, Worf was there but not there, there was a rotation of Chief Engineers without being a main character, Wesley Crusher had a bigger role than he had a right to, characters like Tasha Yar mostly said "Aye, Captain." and the list goes on. Some of that can be put down to it being a new show. Some of it can be put down to Gene Roddenberry making odd and ultimately improper decisions to make the show different or more "proper". That was cleaned up as time went on. Tasha Yar was killed off, and Worf took that role. Geordi LaForge was made Chief Engineer. And Wesley Crusher, Boy Wonder, eventually went off the show outside of occasional guest appearances. My question is, given the shift towards character given stories around season 3, and even the changes in tone of season 2, how would the show have developed if that cast remained as it was in season 1?
