Aside from Rios Raffi became my favorite character. Rios, Elnor, Jurati, Seven, Hugh and Brian Brophy have their own threads. Raffi deserves one, too. What makes her so strong? She's a person with strength and weaknesses and a loyal supporter of Jean-Luc Picard. Contrary to many else here I don't mind her calling him JL. I hope she can solve the problems she has with her son and daughter-in-law and finally gets to see the baby.
