    The series finale was of Riker and Troi on the Enterprise in their timeline using the holodeck to go back and "watch" the time period of when Tripp died and they didn't seem that upset by it either, so basically they could have had Tripp live and it wouldn't have changed anything storyline wise...

    The whole thing almost made it like the whole show Enterprise was all some holo-novel or something...

    THe only sequel that I would want is for Tripp to be alive and with T'Pol, and after the two times that they had a kid together maybe the third time would be the charm and the kid would make it...or at least not be erased from the timeline...

    Well, look at it from Troi and Riker's point of view. For them, it's events that happened almost two hundred years ago. I mean, how upset do any of us get when we watch a movie depicting the assassination of President Lincoln? I liked how they used the contrivance of Riker trying to figure out how to deal with a situation in his present by observing how other people dealt with similar situations in the past. I mean, isn't that the whole reason we learn about history?

    But he could have gotten that from their personal logs and such, and then again the finale was not the finale of TNG but the finale of Enterprise, feeling as if it were taking a back seat on the finale of it's own show...

    True, but Riker was always a hands-on kind of guy. He wouldn't want to read a dry ship's log if he could have an actual conversation with a hologram simulation of the real person.

    Ty Borden on Heartland, yeah he wanted out it looks like but it wasn't a sudden thing and he had been in fewer episodes over like the last four or five seasons so unless the actor was a huge jerk or something there was plenty of time to give him some better storylines, being one half of the main romantic pair on the show imho will really hurt the show going forward, especially if they try to force some new guy down our throats in like two seasons, as really the show can't have that much more left...

    For what it is worth he came back in the books. his death was faked or something. I am not sure how it worked out. But he became a Federation secret agent or something.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Apparently somebody was creating spirits based on dead people.

    At the time....Rorschach.

    I am usually more annoyed of characters running around that should be dead long ago. Like Aunt May.

    One of the worst insults you can say to a fankid is:

    The use of Enterprise's finale as part of a TNG episode was fairly dismissive. Instead of Riker on a holodeck, have an elderly Hoshi Sato tell the story to young Jim Kirk on Tarsus IV. When the story's over, Hoshi asks the boy his name and he says "James Tiberius Kirk". And fandom would stand and applaud.

    I really like that. Much better than the actual ending.
