Vincent’s Thoughts: In today’s Star Trek Problems Chris addresses what happened after Wesley Crusher left the Enterprise D to go to school and then become a space Indian. Ensign Ro certainly was a change to the ship that actually brought character conflict (!) to Star Trek The Next Generation. I grew to love Deep Space Nine because of said conflict and it’s too bad that Ro wasn’t on that show. Side Note: Ro makes my hottest women of Star Trek list because she is kind of a bitch. I guess I’m attracted to the bad girls sometimes.

  • Trivia note. Ro Laren was intended to be Cisco’s 2nd in command on Deep Space 9 but the actress passed on it so they invented Kira Nerys.

  • I’m not sure anyone ever considering Wesley leaving a “problem.”

  • Considering he saved the ship from destruction like 5 times, regardless of popularity, that could be considered a problem.

  • Lamar The Revenger

    At least Riker had his fun with her..

    Wesley was so very important! Picard was comfortable dealing with alien species. Yet, young people made him uncomfortable? Wesley found a purpose and a was given a voice…something youths have been struggling for forever, especially since the 60s. Loved this comic strip! Made the laugh loudly at an inappropriate time.

  • I liked him, but I was at the right age to like him, I think. I was caught off guard when I found out that people hated him!
