So I think that’s officially that for the pilot. I have a few jokes that never quite made it out of the notes file and onto the page, but I think trying to shoe-horn them in to an extended directionless denouement wouldn’t have worked out all that well, so let’s just have Geordi put a lid on it, shall we?
I should emphasize that my read is that when Troi says she’s teasing, Geordi is the person in the room it’s probably least directed at. It’s a failure of execution with my dialogue this morning that I feel the need to emphasize that here, but I just wasn’t firing on all cylinders this morning with the strip.
