Troi-Worf Story Arc Edit
I think it might be nice to have a story arc in the upper right episode guide for the relationship between Troi and Worf. Unless there is a rule against stork arcs involving personal relationships? --Pythagras 00:26, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
- When Doctor Crusher is telling Worf about the neural transceiver option she says they would be implanted in his lower torso and legs, but the diagram clearly shows that they would also be implanted in his upper torso as well.

Did Worf Die? Edit
Dr. Crusher out of character? Edit
It seems so strange that they have a main character taking the ultra conservative route on this "right to self termination" social commentary.
It is medically horrendously unethical for her to not inform Worf of the procedure, which ultimately saved his life. HE decided the risk was worth it, because it's his life and his culture and dignity at stake... which everyone on the ship seems upset with him for having.
It reminds me a bit like Picard says in "A Matter Of Time": "Your arguments have reminded me how precious the right to choose is. And because I've never been one to play it safe, I choose to try"
Crusher chooses to not try, unlike most of Starfleet and rob Worf of his dignity or his right to be kept appraised of his own case. It really made me dislike her character for awhile. They should have put the visiting guest in the villainous "at least he's alive" position. That way that character is gone next week.
