Well, Picard would certainly be devastated by the disappearance of his greatest first officer.
Is there a lot of Picard/Riker fanfic out there? It's not a ship I've seen as popular, but I may have just not looked.
The interesting thing about the Picard and Riker relationship is when those earliest episodes were written, it was written as a brother and brother relationship like Kirk and Spock. But on screen, it plays as if it's father and son. The observation was mentioned by someone related to production, but I don't remember who.
I never felt they had any real chemistry, well I'm sure it's there but not to the degree of Kirk and Spock or Janeway and everyone else.
You're forgetting about Jack "Please don't #### my wife" Crusher.
I wish we'd gotten just one flashback where Jack Crusher was alive and doing more than taping a hololetter. I kept hoping they'd do Jack's death scene.
Have you read the novel Q-Squared by Peter David?
Trelane is Q's Kid, and he goes to Picard for parenting advice.
Shit happens until the story starts following 3 or 4 different timellines, which seem to revolve around how Jack always seems to die before and/or after Beverly cheats on him with Picard.
^ Oh yeah, I remember that one. In an infinite multiverse, there's exactly ONE universe where Jack survived?
I've heard of the book but not read it. But I would have preferred it as a moment in one of the episodes or the films. Unless it turns out that he dies by slipping in the bathtub or something.
Or maybe he caught Picard and Beverly in bed together and she killed him. Bringing the body home was just staged for Wesley's benefit.
Jack walked in on Jean-Luc and Beverly and suffered a betrayal-induced stroke.
You know, if I was going to die and cared at all about my wife. I would tell my best-friend that has the hots for my wife to take care of her, knowing it may mean they end up boning. You know what, to make sure my kid is okay and not raised by some kind of asshole, I'd want my best-friend to bone my wife and raise my kid.
If that was true, then Major Healey would have murdered Larry Hagman by the third episode of I Dream of Jeannie.
If I Dream of Jeannie were rebooted to today, the personalities of Tony and Roger would be reversed, Jeannie embraces him for rescuing her, and the rest of the 30 minutes would be non-stop action requiring it to be on a premium cable service.
The future is no more depraved than the past.
As much as I disliked Joe Besser's stage persona, at least he was still getting work.
I have a bad feeling about that.
The way Han Solo kept saying that, did you ever wonder if he was Force Sensitive?
Well, he did replace the *previous* Spinal Tap drummer who spontaneously combusted onstage. So that's some big shoes to fill.
You think it was the midichlorians that told him skulking around the death star was dangerous?
Jedi fart medichlorians as waste, right?
But are they dead, sickly or backward?
Luke and Obiwan were farting near Han Solo for at least a day before they found the Death Star, and it didn't look like he was using a rebreather at all to guard himself about turning into an insane douche with godlike powers.
