Writer’s Cripple Fight: “Who can we write worse – Troi, or any random Ferengi? And let’s throw her mom in for good, obnoxious measure.” Also, for two entire seasons Betazoids have been able to read Ferengis. The writers choose now to randomly and explicitly change that for some reason. Oh, and Wesley gets a grown up uniform.
PS, I am not proud about sharing this, but I can’t help myself.
