I've been working on my ST Timeline over the last week or so, and when adding in some 24th Century TNG dates, I realized something: Jack Crusher was kind of a crappy dad. In the 4th season episode "Family," Wesley receives a holomessage that his father Jack recorded for him when Wesley was 10 weeks old. He intended to leave a series of them for Wesley as his son grew up, but Beverly says that he never got the chance to record any more before his death. It's never said outright, but the implication is that Jack died not too long after he recorded the first message. So far, so good. This more or less jibes with what Wesley tells Riker in "Encounter at Farpoint": But a couple of seasons later in "True Q", Beverly tells Amanda Rogers that her husband died when Wesley was five. Which means that either Jack Crusher recorded his initial message to Wesley when his newborn son was 10 weeks old and then didn't bother to record another one for more than four and a half years, or else that Beverly accidentally erased the rest of Jack's messages and then gave Wes a clumsy lie to cover up her mistake. But I guess it worked, because apparently supergenius Wesley never did the math to figure it out. I'm not serious, of course, but I thought it was pretty funny.
