Did I miss the personnel file in "The Next Phase" that describes his name as "Edward M.". I seem to recall seeing something like that on the net at one time, and as the script notes, it was supposed to be right before Ro Laren's file was shown, however I can not seem to locate it in that episode. --Alan del Beccio 09:19, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

A file with personnel data about Geordi La Forge was only seen once, in "Cause and Effect". It mentioned his birthdate and place of birth and when he entered and graduated from Starfleet Academy, but it gives no account of his parents.
In "The Next Phase" only Ro Laren's death certificate is seen. Finally, in "Conundrum", the personnel files of nearly the whole bridge crew are seen. We hear the computer read out Geordi's name but when we should see his file, a reaction shot of the bridge crew is seen instead. I guess Geordi's personnel file was created for "Conundrum", like for the rest of the officers, but just wasn't seen (the same is true for Worf and Riker). The data the file would have featured, e.g. the names of his parents were mentioned in the Star Trek Encyclopedia, so I guess that is where the information is from; on screen, however, the names were never seen. --Jörg 17:11, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
