    I keep remembering other things he was in and getting sad all over again.

    I was killing Thresher Maws on foot before I knew it was a Krogan rite of passage.

    As I write this, I find myself thinking of Odo's last scene, saying goodbye to Kira dressed in a dapper tuxedo as he rejoins the great link. It seems like a good way to remember Rene Auberjonois. Farewell and godspeed Mr. Auberjoinois, thank you for all the great memories.

    Odo and Quark climb a mountain. Good times.

    Children of Time: O'Brien is guilted into abandoning his wife and child, which seems par for the course.

    Shut up, Mr. Burton! You were not brought upon this world to get it!

    Yeah. He would also play villains and obnoxious people.

    On a different topic, I just watched the last episode of Enterprise with my wife last night. I hadn't seen it before. The only reason I cared is because I saw Riker on the screen.

    That said, I found it perfectly adorable. My reaction at the end was: "Oh, so Enterprise is just one long flashback episode of TNG! I'm ok with that!"

    Sidenote: what is up with Plox's creepy CGI smile in his last scene? Is it meant to be somehow endearing? Freaking nightmare fluid if you ask me *shudder*.

    He says "merde" occasionally. "Gallic accent when emotional" is kind of a dumb idea for the character anyway.

    He's also a natural Yomantic.

    I just saw the episode where Odo first meets the Changelings

    They all made themselves look like subtle variations of Odo for when he met them, right? It's not that they just all happen to look like Odo in humanoid form.

    Yes.

    And then later no because they forgot or something.

    Staring at his fish, smoking a cigarette, he sighs with ennui because replicated cheeses lack a certain je ne sais quoi.

    I mean, kinda? As far as I'm aware anyway. The whole point of these type of things is that you have a specific idea in mind for the character and you are trying to convey that idea to the casting director so they can find you the people you are looking for. So it's basically full of whatever kind of thing gets that idea across best, with no concern for how it sounds or subtlety or taste.

    But listing no "street types" for the one black character?

    yikes

    I read that as something very different on the first pass.

    Like I said, no subtlety or taste. Plus it was the 80s.

    But even if you think "that's not the kind of thing you should say" (which is true, you really shouldn't talk like that), you still get what they mean. It's not meant for public consumption so they aren't trying to be politically correct about it.

    It was the 80s, and it was Roddenberry et al - you know, the guy who used to "audition" young female guest stars in his office, back during TOS?

    As I've said before, for all that he gave sold us a vision of a (mostly) enlightened post-scarcity utopia, the man himself was pure Ferengi.

    'beaten. It's so humbling to see "it was the 80s" used as an explanation for this stuff, because TNG is even further in the past now than TOS was when I first watched TNG and I thought TOS was cringe and "it was the 60s" was the reason often given for that stuff too. (smacking around women casually and other forms of sexism, etc)

    It's always been a notable gap in the moralizing, too.

    Fun fact: she was the choreographer for Labyrinth. I could see her offering Wesley to Jareth and him being all "Nah, I'm good, thanks"

    I didn't realize Riker being born in Alaska goes that far back. I think it came up once in an off-hand remark in Lower Decks? Felt more like something a writer made up for that scene than something so vital to the character it was part of the initial casting call and has been carried forward since.

    Roddenberry was ... kind of gross, yeah. There are definitely Reasons why McFadden wasn't around in the second season.

    It comes up in the episode with his father as well.
