    I don't mind taking things seriously but personally I feel when things like (don't worry not you, the below quote isn't from you)
    The conversation dangerously veers into no longer being about Trek or even related topics and starts becoming about other posters.

    So we done with the fascinating who does he invoke; Logan vs Corto Maltese vs. Harry Morgan vs. Shipwreck(Hector X. Delgado) vs. Che Guevara? :lol:, let's make this interesting again.

    Does the "snap" engage the controls, or that's just more of his style? -

    Rios: Indeed. My first high school speech class involved memorizing and reciting one of your speeches.

    Picard: ... Why in the world was I throwing a fit that one time a transporter accident turned me into a kid...?

    Rios: Because no one would listen to your speeches anymore, at least not for a while.

    Picard: It was a rhetorical question! I wasn't asking you!

    Rios: :lol:

    John Jackson Miller mentioned in the Trek Literature forum that Rogue Elements is going to be the longest novel Picard yet at around 400 pages.He's excited he gets to tell a longer story for Rios and filling in the backstory for the character and season one in general.

    I'm somewhat surprised they're filling in Rios' backstory in literature so quickly. I kind of thought his character would be perfect for Lower Decks (even though I don't watch that show anymore, I can see them bringing him in). Young Rios being the goofiest, most fun-loving character in that cartoon would make the dissonance between his bitter gloomy Picard self after the ibn Majid incident that much more memorable for audiences.

    So Rios mentions that he felt like he knew Captain Marta Batanides (his captain had been her first officer)
    Marta Batanides played a significant role in the TNG episode "Tapestry" in which Q brings Picard back to revisit several pivotal moments in his past.
    She was there during the fight and stabling which led to Picard needing his artificial heart,.
    The tapestry idea of second chances and revisiting past times also featured heavily in the teaser for S2.
    Might the hints of Marta Batanides character get e revisit, ...?

    Pretty sure they attached him to bubbly psycho murderer Agnes.

    At first I though that's to old to be Bernal as Che?
    Must be him from Mozart's Jungle? Haven't watched it yet, but heard good things.

    LOL suggested it ^ way back, got no replies so didn't think anyone knew what I was talking about. :lol:

    It'd definitely make things more complicated/interesting
