When I get the time, you get the answers:
<<what about Garak and Bashir? I really, really, REALLY miss the
relationship between these two. It's far more interesting than Bashir and
We're also bandying about some ideas for Garak/Bashir, and I hope we'll do
one before time runs out.
<<In issue 79 (1991) of the publication Star Trek: The Official Fan Club an
article appeared (recently republished in Star Trek Communicator) wherein
Whoopi Goldberg made the following remarks:
STC: Did the producers ever tell you how Guinan knows Q?
WG: [Laughs] Yes, but I'm not allowed to say how she knows Q. It would give
away why and what she's doing there on the Enterprise. That whole theme
won't be dealt with until my relationship with Star Trek is done. So let's
hope that it doesn't ever come up.
STC: Many fans have wondered what Guinan meant in the episode The Best of
Both Worlds when she said that she was more than family and more than a
friend with Captain Picard. What did she mean?
WG: [Laughs] I can't tell you! I wish I could. But it did leave you
wondering and I think that was the idea. It is those things that keep you
guessing. But there is something there.
SO! My question(s):
Have the storylines ever been resolved or addressed? If so I must have
missed the episode. It would be fascinating for you to reveal some of the
original plans for the character which have never been brought to fruition.>
To be honest, I have no idea what Whoopi is talking about. She might be
referring to a conversation she had with Gene or Maurice Hurley when she
first came on the show in which they discussed a possible Q/Guinan
backstory. However, by the time I came on in TNG's 3rd season, there was no
backstory sitting around or even talked about on the writing staff.
<<Mister Moore will there be a reference to Josh Gibson the greatest homerun
hitter of all time and/or the Negro Leauges in the ep Take Me out to the
No. I don't think there are any references to any major league players in
<<Hello Ron, I know that you do not like to discuss eps. but one question
about "Take me out to the Holosuite". The episode has Sisko and crew in a
baseball game against the vulcans, now is this a full cast episode? I would
think it would have to be since you need at least 9 players to makeup a
team, so will we see O'Brien, Worf and Martok helping to make up the rest of
Now batting for the Niners: Sisko, Jake, Kira, Ezri, Worf, Quark, Rom,
Leeta, Bashir, O'Brien, and Kasidy. (Not the actual batting order, which
would give you some idea of who's playing what.)
