havocthecat found this on Memory Alpha:

"Ashley Judd was on Letterman [...]. Dave surprised her with a clip of her appearance on TNG, where she went on a date with Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton). Judd mentioned that she was reprising the role (of Robin Lefler) in Star Trek Nemesis as Wesley's wife."

THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY CANON RIGHT NOW, I don't even care a little bit that it didn't actually happen on film. EEEE!

This right here is why they are so cute. Flirting in Engineering while they mess around with sensor power distributions and drifting neutrinos! Nerds in their natural habitat. (all caps from trekcore.com)

Then they go on a dinner date, like normal people, but decide it would be way more fun to do diagnostics on the latest video game craze. Then they decide they need to save the ship. Meant for each other, for serious.

So, one would normally hope that hanging out together on Wesley's bed after a date would involve orgasms that aren't fake, but it's all part of saving the ship. Also, Wesley's mom is looking on all proud and creepy (she's brainwashed, okay?). I'm going to assume there were real orgasms later that involved no creepiness whatsoever.

Plot happens, but whatever: THEY ARE SO CUTE.

And kissing! <3

Rule 103, amended: A few light-years and a brief detour into alternate planes of existence are totally workable obstacles for a relationship this adorable!

That episode made me fall in love with WC (and RL) and I've never really gotten over it. :)

*SQUEEE* I want to write epic fanfic now, and have icons and stuff. This episode is so full of adorable (and creepiness!!) and I have secretly wondered this whole time how I could write Wesley/Robin future!fic without people telling me I'm ridiculous. (It could be worth it though?)

Write it!! It would never be ridic -- it would be AWESOME. :)

Yes! And YES. Holy sauce that episode is so very wrong in so many ways. And yet also so awesome, because of course Riker brings back sex toys from Risa and gives them as presents to absolutely everyone. Even if it weren't a crazy alien conspiracy, that would probably happen.

This episode is the most "HAHAHA" one when I think back to how I interpreted it as a child. Man, I had no idea anyone ever had any sex on that show. I mean, Troi talks dirty to Riker over a chocolate sundae in public before he even gives her the game. They were having sex pretty much all the time and pretending it didn't mean anything, I think.

I love the massive amounts of innuendo and how many times it could be "do you want to try this game?" could be "hey, lets have an orgy."

(Beverly/Deanna/Will would be fun me, have to say...)

I so did not appreciate the awesomeness of this episode until I watched it with wine.

Hmm! I read about that on the wiki page. Parallel universe? IDIC? Or she goes back to Wesley after her husband dies and Wesley returns to this dimension? Transporter twin? I'm willing to even pounce on your typo and claim it's a different character entirely. ;) Either way, it's another reason I should read that book series. Lefler! <3 <3

I'm totally okay with both of these things running in parallel, because I've always considered the books to be alterna-canon... like, the parallel universe that's the closest to ours, but still not ours, hehe. I used to read all the TNG novels and needed to make up that rationale to avoid a few discrepancies. Because Star Trek was 100% REAL to me as a kid, so these things kept me up nights! :)

Zak Kebron!! No way! He was in the Starfleet Academy kids' books. I think he hung out with Worf. Or maybe Geordi? I think it was Worf, though. I also vaguely remember a young K'Ehlyr was in one of them making flirty eyes at young Worf. :)

Those books were ridiculously adorable. I also remember the Jake & Nog On DS9 Adventures that were similar skinny chapter books for kids... awwww. *warm fuzzy childhood memories*

DUDE SHELBY I FREAKING LOVE HER. Loooove. I draw hearts around my TV whenever The Best of Both Worlds is on, and I love that she showed up in Vendetta to be snarky some more (and Pulaski was totally in that too!). Peter David is pretty ridiculous about collecting the lost Star Trek sheep. He needs to hurry up and put that one Red Squad survivor girl from the DS9 episode "Valiant" in something quickly, because I always wondered what happened to her after the PTSD cleared.

Those books were so great! :) I was totally jealous that I would never get to go to Starfleet Academy and play Capture the Flag on alien moons and whatever. No fair!

Vendetta might have been the single most influential book on my writing style (possibly because it introduced the concept of fanfic to me, and then I went OH EM GEE). My style has morphed quite a bit since then, but for at least four years I was copying everything out of that book right down to the little witty descriptions and turns of phrase. I seriously FREAKED OUT when my college friend (who now runs Comics Alliance) was like "oh yeah, I got drunk with him this one time"... because, yeah, he's most famous for comic books, but I'm like "STAR TREK!!!!"

Oh my gosh, I've actually seen that episode! It's an impressive feat, strangely.
Little Red: trek - rascals jumpmylittleredgirl on December 6th, 2010 09:03 pm (UTC)
Hooray! :) That might be the most ridiculous thing TNG ever did. Well, except for all the other ridiculous things they did. OH STAR TREK, ILU.

Whoooooooooa... that is one of very few episodes that I remember in minute detail, and I LOVED those two. SHE'S SERIOUSLY HIS WIFE NOW?!?!?!

*brb, brain gone splody*

Well, "seriously" as in "the actress said it once and it didn't actually happen on film." But that's good enough for me!! :-D BECAUSE. OMG. I have secretly wished for that this whole time and felt very silly but now it's totally legit! <3 <3 <3
MegTDJmeg_tdj on December 6th, 2010 08:58 pm (UTC)
Hey, that works for me! :D

She's so adorable! And this ship is far better than the Picard/Wesley thing I'm still trying to forget.
