You seem to be opposed to women being real people. You seem to have an ideal of them that is "pretty" and "warm"...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but women are just people. Their farts stink, they sweat when they work hard and that smells...and, you should never assume that drinking from their shoes will be a pleasant experience.

I guess a real person isn't that appealing.

Sorry.

Tasha was, if nothing else, quite real.
Good point, I always liked that not everyone aboard the D came from a nice corner of the Federation.
As we talk about typical gender-role-behaviour, typical for the last centuries and decades which is about to break up, it is only normal that people have an opinion about which aspects of typical masculine or feminine behaviour are good or bad, not at least because some people strive to become 'the best of borth worlds'.
Tasha or other female characters like Janeway definitely were the best of both worlds, now let's start a discussion about whether any male characters in Trek have picked out the best gender-role-typical female qualities.

Tasha is probably the biggest reason why I like the first season, despite all of it's weak episodes.

Son of a *****...I just found this thread.

I am not kidding...I just saw and deleted that episode from my DVR yesterday, before I read this post and could have looked for that Tasha sign off you're talking about.

I am a huge TNG fan, and did not know that...thanks for the heads up!

I didn't mind Tasha but like a lot of the characters in season 1 she suffered from lack of development. Her main episode I can remember was Code of Honour, which was a shocking episode and didn't do Tasha any good.

Yesterdays Enterprise was a good snapshot of how things could have been, and by the looks of it that would have been pretty decent.

Yeah, I wish Denise had stayed longer than the first season. I think it would have planed out into a substantial role.

Things being what they are, though, we may not have had as much development of Worf had that been true.

Good point...and maybe we wouldn't have seen Geordi become chief engineer. I was always curious why TNG didn't have a main cast member as Chief Engineer for the first year...

That was quite odd. Didn't they go through four engineers? I believe I read that on Memory Alpha.

maybe having her die like that set TNG apart from TOS. In which no main charators died. And probly why so many of us thought that Riker was going to leave the show latter on down the road.

Let's see - there was the woman (her name I forget), then Argyle and Lynch. All in season 1. Plus Geordi makes four indeed!
