    Why is Rios with beard sexier than without?

    Probably because it isn't the greatest photoshop job in the world. Cabrera himself is sexy with or without the beard - he does look a lot younger without it, though!

    Some more Rios character information I noted from 1.08: Soji asks if he has a family and he says no, then five seconds later starts singing a lullaby he learned from his mother, so I guess we can infer that his mother is dead. He also tells Raffi that he thought of Captain Vandermeer as a father, which strongly implies that he never had a father of his own, for whatever reason.

    Or estranged, perhaps, for some reason. He definitely seems like there is some hidden baggage (like many of them) as a component of his persona.

    It might define that sexy jawline a little more...

    LOL! Thanks for the reminder of that outrageous scene. :hugegrin:
    Clearly technology no mater how sophisticated it becomes, we'll never have advanced enough that we think just clunking it may help.

    Thanks for the memory! How I loved The Musketeers - that show was so much fun.

    I guess Rios is playing Musketeer adventures on the Holodeck. With the Rios as D'Artagnan. Aramis and Athos played by the holograms. Only Porthos being played by a Beagle.

    What's great is Picard shared the novel to young Elnor.
    Wish we had confirmed it among Elnor's possessions when he came on board.
    How wonderful would it be if during an inevitable down-time moment (maybe next season if they all survive):
    - Elnor is perusing the novel, and playfully looks up at Rios, who is like; What is it kid!?
    Elnor: - You know, you'd make a great Aramis!
    - Cut to Holodeck: Dressed as the Three Musketeers: Picard (outagous french accent as Athos), Rios (as Aramis), Raffi (reluctantly as Porthos) and Elnor gets to live out his boyhood fantasy as D'Artagnan.:)

    That may be the kindest outcome for her, however poorly phrased.

    She's going to have a personal Rios hologram as shrink and pleasure program.

    Incidentally the beardless look in the Starfleet photo (presumably taken from Santiago's early work like Merlin or something) sells how young and idealistic he was back then, and how much things changed.

    Complied these interesting parallel themes...

    Also another one of the books on Rios' shelf, which has a parallel in the episode "Two days and two nights".

    What kind of uniform does Picard have in his box?
