I bet it was Riker, she probably turned him down for sex.
 
2021-05-07 6:36:15 PM  
It's probably because Wesley still lives with her and Picard has no time to deal with that lil shiat.

They dated for a while after Nemesis but he broke up with her after a haunted menorah showed up and said it was there for the gang bang.

I always thought she was pretty hot.

She's going to be busy as the doctor in Superman and Lois.

They can't use every throwback character in the same season or two.  You have to ration that shiat out.

I guess they'll be Pulaski into rotation. With a lot of the callbacks in the first season, I'd think bringing Dr Crusher in would raise the question, "Whatever happened to your son?"

I like that the last episode of TNG was a "what-if" version of the characters' futures, but now we've all lived long enough to see the "real" version of the characters' futures. Cosmic, man.

The traveller is like one of those Russian mafia guys who offer jobs to girls and take away their passports one they get there.

Once Wesley arrived in the Traveller's galaxy, the young man lost his ability to move through time space. Then, he got Wesley hooked up on drugs and put him to work turning tricks. Afterwards, the Traveller goes off to convince other naive young people that they're special and should go with him.

So a new idea for a Star Trek series that will make nobody happy. The story takes place on Earth in the POST TNG future. A bunch of Federation citizens from different walks of life get together to LARP in a holodeck. None of them ever served in Star Fleet because honestly the real Star Fleet is kinda dull as the Federation's technology and training means there's usually a simple tech fix for any problem a Starship encounters and so life in Star Fleet is seen as kinda dull and bureaucratic government job.

So these guys get together to LARP being in Star Fleet and the campaigns they play are all the klunker episodes of every incarnation of Star Trek thus destroying all concept of continuity and canon in the Star Trek multiverse.
So an episode would have these guys meet up at the local holodeck on the weekend and one of them will have brought a campaign with him and then they fight during the campaign over whether this one is the worst one yet.
"Computer freeze program. What the hell!? A spider? The guy has turned into a spider because the doctor messed up treating his cold? Who the hell wrote this holoRPG?"

"That's Barclay he's the guy who wrote this holoRPG. His holoRPGs are always weird and kinda creepy. But it says it's based on a true event."

"What!? What true event? In what universe could something this stupid happen?"

"Well obviously he's playing fast and loose with the science just to move the story along. I mean let's face it when was the last time anybody made a weapon of mass destruction that could fail. We live in a post scarcity society. Every piece of technology that is dangerous to life would have enough redundancies built into it to make failure unthinkable. But you were okay with a photon torpedo malfunctioning at the beginning of the campaign."

"Yeah but turning into a spider because the doctor farked up treating your cold? C'mon none of this shiat makes sense."

"Oh really. None of this makes sense? And what was the last RPG you brought. That one set in the past where we had to go rescue, what was it? The Brain of Ambassador Spock?"

"Okay look, I'll admit that Spock's Brain was a bit of a let down."

"You only bought it because there was a hot woman on the cover and you have a hard on over retro styles."
"Look they can't all be Balance of Terror, but he's turned into a spider because his cold medicine was wrong. This is way stupider than the Spock's Brain RPG. Spider Mary Sue is just breaking my immersion."

"Barclay is not a Mary Sue."

"He literally wrote himself into his own RPG."

"Yeah but he's... a spider..... Look have you actually read the report logs of what happened in that incident? They fired a torpedo, the primary and secondary safety systems failed. But the other 20 redundancy systems built into every weapons system because we have the technology and economy to let us build systems with a ridiculous amount of safety systems in everything we make, worked fine and there was no incident. Lt. Barclay had a minor health issue that was treated competently in sick bay, but WHAT IF!!!! WHAT IF the redundancy systems ALL failed on that training mission? WHAT IF the medical care he received was sloppy? That's what we're playing a WHAT IF, because the reality of Star Fleet is we live in a time where artificial intelligence means every problem can be quickly solved by our technology, where every human that is involved in the mission has been so well trained and selected for the mission that the combination of AI and human problem solving skills means every problem we run into gets solved, quickly, efficiently and competently solved."

"So because Lt. Barclay couldn't find a way to make his day seem more exciting than it really was we have to play through an RPG where he turns into a spider and the ships counsellor turns into a... what did she turn into, a newt? A farking newt? That's literally a worn out joke from the 20th century comedy troupe Monty Python."

"Woah! People have been ripping off Monty Python for RPGs ever since RPGs were invented. Monty Python is fundamental to the RPG experience."

"Yeah well, I'm just wanting something a little less... silly. Would it be too much to ask for an RPG that has at least a thread of connection to the possible instead of just a random fark fest of realism and silliness? I just want to feel like this is something that could have happened for real I'd just like a little internal consistency, not just a "Ensign Mary Sue has an adventure for some stupid reason when any person who is as smart as Ensign Mary Sue is portrayed as being would have seen the obvious solution to the problem and not the convoluted solution to the problem that the RPG writer has us jumping through just so they can tell a story about MARY farkING SUE TURNING INTO A farkING SPIDER!"

Meanwhile the character who is an alien race we've never seen before in any incarnation of Star Trek says "Why is there nobody of my species in any of these RPGs?"

"Oh for Christ's sake's Jeff, we've been over this. We only contacted your species 6 months ago. We didn't even know you existed when this RPG was written."

"Look I'm just saying I'm getting a little sick of playing Klingons just because my species looks slightly like Kingons."
"Then play with a different holoskin. I'm not a Vulcan but I RPed a Vulcan in our last campaign."

"Oh like putting on pointed ears and acting like a self righteous asshole is such a stretch for humans. My people's culture is nothing like Klingon culture even if we look kinda, vaguely similar. I'd just like a character I can relate to a little more."

"Well then pick one of the more than eighty thousand alien races we had contact with when this RPG was written that best fits the character you want to be."

"Look, I'm just saying, both our species technological and social tech is so advanced that six months after meeting each other I'm living on the core world of a completely different species and culture and integrating so well that I'm meeting weekly to play pretend with a group of aliens I didn't even know existed less than a year ago, is it really so much of a stretch to imagine one member of my species met you guys 20 years ago?"

"Really, Jeff? Really? You really think given both our civilization's tech that either one of us could have had a first contact 20 years ago yet it would lead to no meaningful contact between our species until just six months ago? C'mon Jeff! C'mon!!!"

"Oh I see, you're okay with Ensign Mary Sue turning into a spider but you just can't accept that a Grezorpunakin had contact with the Federation 20 years before our real first contact."

"For fark's sake Jeff! I'm not okay with Ensign Mary Sue turning into a spider. The whole reason I paused the simulation was because I was not okay with that. If you want to play a Grezorpunakin, which I gotta be honest sounds like a name for a species made by pulling random scrabble tiles out of a bag, like if you gave some pulp fiction writers from Earth's 1930s a task of coming up with an alien species name and then have a character of that species have the dullest of human names, well hey you do you JEFF."

"Woah! Woah! Woah! ROBERT! I'll have you know in my language Jeff is a name that's almost sacred in its beauty and meaning. While Robert sounds like the noise we make after a really good meal."

"Yeah well you're on Earth now Jeff. And on Earth Jeff is such a dull assed name that some people named it will add "Ery" to the end of it just to spice it up."

Meanwhile the guy whose turn it was to pick the holoRPG for that week is begging them "Guys! Guys! Please! Can we just get through this game without it going off the rails into a big fight over what is stupid and what is not? C'mon guys. Just throw yourself into it. We gotta find a way to turn the crew back into non animal version of themselves before Picard becomes a lemur and gets eaten by that Worf guy. Can we just focus on that for now."

"Fine! Let's get this done, but next week it's my turn to bring the holoRPG and I'm farking rolling a Grezorpunakin for once and first contact be damned."

"Okay, Jeff, fine. Just make sure it's a good one."

"Oh it's a good one alright. "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier". I hear we get to kick god in the crotch in this one."

"God dammit, Jeff."

You know the problem with sex on Star Trek:TNG is that is was all so.....empty. It's as if they deliberately made the show bereft of genuine heat, passion, intensity, and chemistry (And please spare me any mention of Sub Rosa. That episode was at best, a farkin' embarrassment).

And you know what? Picard knew. Picard somehow contacted the Traveller just to get Westley the hell away from Starfleeet. The kid had caused so much damage and destruction with his "science homework", it was only a matter of time before the flagship of the Federation was destroyed with all hands aboard because of that frustrated virgin who got to hang around his mom's workplace.

Yeah, I had the feeling that originally the idea was to have him actually go to Beverly for help but thankfully one of the writers thought "You know, having Beverly Crusher become a broken recovering drug addict and alcoholic living in a trailer in a national park just doesn't seem like that's how things would pan out for her character."

That whole scene was so weird. It would make sense if she was living in some far off frontier world but she was literally living in a trailer on Earth, the shining centre of the Federation where poverty has been eliminated.

Picard in general is just weird. Gene's vision was a future where we evolved beyond our petty problems. Not just big ticket issues like war, poverty, hunger, etc... but also personal issues like depression, grief, envy, etc...

And then here comes this show full of sullen, mopey drug addicts whining about their emotional trauma. It's the most un-Star Trek show ever made. Its very existence is offensive.

The only thing I can think is her therapist recommended getting into a very simple, minimalist lifestyle. Then she makes a call to the social services  saying "I've got a patient suffering from PTSD related substance abuse. Can you set me up with a nice simple trailer somewhere scenic where she can decompress for awhile with a simpler lifestyle... ... just a second let me check... Raffi, you don't have any Gorn related PTSD do you?.... .... yeah she says no, the trailer at the Vasquez Rocks should be fine. Can you send a shuttle please to pick us up?"

That would make sense in the Star Trek, post scarcity Earth, although Vasquez Rocks is a bit of a stretch. But hey, whose to say it's even Vasquez Rocks. It could be a trailer in the desert but the trailer has holographic projectors on it that let it project any desertscape around it and Raffi just chose to set it up for the Vasquez Rocks. Which makes her "Oh look at you with your fancy vineyard while I'm living her in abject squalor" pity party even more puzzling. But I guess you could explain that being more her lashing out because it's just easier for her right now to blame someone else for her problems.

Okay.
TNG holoRPGs are written by Barclay, of course.
TOS holoRPGs are written by Scotty, while drunk.
TAS holoRPGs are written by Chekov, because he's not a Mary Sue who needs to put himself in every story (And TAS fans know why else Chekov would be a good choice for that)
DS9 holoRPGs written by Jake Sisko, duh.
Kelvin-verse holoRPGs are written by Kirk, but are actually just written by ghostwriters.
ENT holoRPGs are written by Riker under a pen name and there's way more decontamination gel scenes in them.
Prime-verse holoRPGs they'll apparently just let anyone write.
VOY holoRPGs are written by Doctor Zimmerman but published anonymously.
Lower Decks holoRPGs are written by Ensign Ghastly Sue, the youngest, prettiest, and smartest person to ever graduate from Star Fleet Academy.

Ghastly: living in a trailer in a national park


I've had this discussion on Fark before but who determines who lives where in the Star Trek universe?

There is no money, so why do some people have to live in a trailer and other people get to live in a vineyard mansion?

Everybody on the planet can't live in a big giant beautiful house, but it certainly doesn't seem fair that if you are in Starfleet (basically the military) you have more of a choice than the unwashed masses who are still digging ditches for free because someone has to!

Are you actually suggesting Picard is good drama?

buntz: Ghastly: living in a trailer in a national park

I've had this discussion on Fark before but who determines who lives where in the Star Trek universe?

There is no money, so why do some people have to live in a trailer and other people get to live in a vineyard mansion?

Everybody on the planet can't live in a big giant beautiful house, but it certainly doesn't seem fair that if you are in Starfleet (basically the military) you have more of a choice than the unwashed masses who are still digging ditches for free because someone has to!


The idea of no money never made sense. Whether society is capitalist, communist, some combo, or anything else there will be a need of a store of value.

A call back of a character can be fun, but it sounds like this series is doing it a bit too much. Are the new characters so uninteresting?

Might I suggest that if any other Trek alumni want in that they be cast in a new role.

Why does it matter "where" you live in an age of instantaneous teleportation?

I'm sure people in the past said the same thing about slavery.

Because one where you live is different than how you travel?
