In the "Family Guy" episode with the TNG cast (which I so proudly display!), Denise has one line, then Stewie kills her with a blast from his Klingon disruptor.

I liked the subtle reference to killing Tasha off!

The ironic thing was, Tasha probably had one of the best life stories of all, in Yesterday's Enterprise, and that was only as a guest star.

Think bringing her back was a bad idea.

I thought her return and the consequences of it was one of the more ingenious things that TNG ever did - I felt it was a shame she and Sela vanished after Reunification in season 5.

I like Tasha. She was more interesting character-wise than Deanna.

I agree, she seemed like the main Romulan antagonist in the few episodes she appeared in. Pitty that TNG did not do DS9-style with more frequently appearing secondary characters.
On the other hand, Sela might simply have been executed after her failure in "Unification". I think that's how the Romulan incentive system works.

I think having Sela as a recurring antagonist could have added a great dimension to the show because of her parentage.

She probably did get exiled, executed or banished to some outpost in the middle of nowhere!

Great point, Kevin.

Isn't she in this respect the better Shinzon, wouldn't it make more sense if someone like her who had to distance herself from her mother and her human side hated humankind like no other Romulan?
And no matter how rational Picard is, wouldn't the memory (and resemblance) of her mother make him a bit uneasy whenever he has to deal with her?
