Interestingly enough I'm on a site where Wil Wheaton is a regular poster.

That might not be very interesting at all though.

What would happen if Picard asked Data to do it? Say, if Worf was ill, or on a planet or something. Would Data refuse, saying "No, that's not my job". Would that prompt Picard to shout "What is this? A fucking trade union? Open the fucking hailing frequencies, Data, and if you refuse to obey a simple order again I'll load you into the photon missile chamber and fire you into the fucking sun. For fuck's sake."

I don't think that would happen as it was quite a family friendly show so I don't think there would be swearing.

So something more like "This isn't a union, Commander Data. When I ask you to open hailing frequencies I expect you to do it and if you question my orders again you might find yourself calculating how long your synthetic brain can survive being fired into the centre of the sun."

That's just not as good. I know people say that swearing shows a lack of imagination, but that really lacks something.

Also, it sounds less like Jean Luc Picard, and more like Arnold Rimmer.

In the days before the Internet I paid a whole £1 for a floppy disc containing Public Domain applications for the Archimedes. Oddly, it also included a text file of a ST:TNG fanfic that starred Rocky and Bullwinkle.

It's unlikely that Data would be asked to do it, to be honest. Data outranks Worf so if Worf was on holiday or something, then a junior bridge officer would be manning his post. Not a senior officer.

No lamprey though, iirc.

Surely... I mean. If Data was literally standing right next to the console... You know. Sometimes my boss might ask me to pop out and get some milk, and I don't say "no get one of the interns to do it". I mean. He can push a fucking button can't he? What's his problem?

I dunno, I just don't see it. Why would he be standing around back there? It's a totally different part of the bridge from the Conn station. Is he just, like, stretching his legs or something? And where's Worf? Who's flying the ship while Data is wandering aimlessly around the bridge? It just doesn't add up.

He can, but that's going to fuck up the whole hierarchy thing. Imagine it the janitor had broken his leg and Picard walked into the toilet to take a dump and there were skid marks all around the bowl and then Riker walks into the bathroom, Picard isn't going to go "Oh Riker, can you scrub the toilet bowl please so I can crap on a clean toilet". That's going to cause issues as Riker is going to be thinking that cleaning of toilet bowls isn't what he signed up to and resentment will build up.

These are all tough questions Picard would have to answer when he gets reprimanded in his annual review. He'd probably just sit and shrug and look at his hands.

That's true, yes.

I should remember that, as a couple of years ago, Kellifer and I watched every episode of TNG - one a night for a good few months. When we'd finished them, we watched the first episode of DS9. We didn't really bother with Star Trek after that.

picard has a ready room for matters of personal sanitation and comfort, he probably doesn't share his number ones with number one.

According to the Star Trek TNG interactive technical manual, there is a toilet for bridge staff towards the back of the bridge ont he left hand side. The door to it is opposite the door to the briefing room.

But asking Riker to clean shit off the bowl is demeaning. You can't compare it.

I dunno. If I was Picard I'd expect people to - like - chip in with things even if they're not strictly within their job parameters and I'd get annoyed if they said they wouldn't. I mean. Riker there is about to have a Lamprey attached onto his anus, and Data is complaining about dialling an external number? Gimme a fucking break.

If Star Trek - The Next Generation were a reality TV show, who would you vote off first?

Probably Worf. His weird head disturbs me.

Not really the point though is it. If your security officer is missing, for no apparent reason, and nobody has seen fit to take up the post (a critical responsibility in terms of shipwide operations), and one of the most senior officers on the bridge is also away from his post - roaming around without a purpose while the ship simply drifts through space without a pilot - then the issue of who opens the fucking hailing frequencies should be the last thing on your mind. There has clearly been a fundamental breakdown in the chain of command. And while we’re mentioning it - why isn’t Riker on the bridge as well? Is it just Picard and Data desperately trying to fill in for the rest of the bridge staff, who have just decided they’ve got better things to do with their day than do their jobs?

Riker was in engineering investigating reports of a breach to the warp core.
