Rewriting Wesley Crusher for Star Trek: The Next Generation
Wesley is not exactly a fan favorite. In fact, he was voted just below Jar Jar as sci-fi's most annoying character. On this show we have the supreme gift of hindsight so what could have been done differently?
On the previous episode, we punched up Beverly Crusher so how would that effect Wesley's development on the show? We start with Farpoint and work our way all the way up to Nemesis.
Rewriting Dr. Beverly Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation
In another example of a fantastic character where the writers had no idea what to do, we bring you Beverly Crusher! In this episode, we take a look at the character of Crusher and try to figure out what works and what doesn't. We even go down the path of punching up her relationship with Wesley. Could this mean that they have to have ... the talk?
Ayala was Chakotay's right hand man back in the day. What did that look like?
This week we take a listener suggestion and develop a story on-the-fly talking about the first time Chakotay and Ayala met. We don't know much about Ayala but we had his name mentioned often in Star Trek: Voyager. He even had more to do than our beloved Lt. Jae.
Listen and subscribe to hear our story of intrigue, espionage and escape.
We don't have a lot to go on with this question. Star Trek focuses on adventure in space and not so much the 9-5ers back on Earth. Sure, we've had some glimpses from a New Orleans restaurant and Harry's apartment in San Francisco but not too terribly much beyond that. So we try to postulate what transportation, housing, and work might look like in Gene Roddenberry's utopia.
What if Kes stayed for all seven seasons of Star Trek: Voyager?
No Seven of Nine, no writing off Kes. What if she stayed and finished the entire run of the show? This is something that we're sure many a Star Trek: Voyager fan has pondered. We ended up rewriting Scorpion as well as Endgame (making it better in the process) as well as everything in between on a high level.
What would Kes' life be like on the ship post Scorpion? How would she age? Would she find companionship in someone other than Neelix? Would she have another Elogium? Find this out and more by listening.
Warning: This episode discusses traumatic events involving childbirth.
