comment Were there ever any plans to have Picard be Wesley's real father?
Everyone: I'm certainly not saying they can't have considered it. Obviously if they did, they (rightly IMO) rejected it.

comment What was the original description and backstory for the character of Data?
@zer00ne: A Bynar should have known better.

comment What was the original description and backstory for the character of Data?
I'm not sure I agree he looks more human. All I see is that his hair is a little different, his skin is slightly pinker, and he didn't grow his pointy sideburns yet.

@jpmc26: Well, admittedly you may be making me somewhat defensive, but if you dislike or don't understand the question so much, then why don't you just stop looking at it?

@jpmc26: No. It's not "does Stackexchange allow this" because you don't appear open to edits which clarify the question. You just hate it.

@jpmc26: First of all, I think you need to take a long hard look at what you're asking. Are you trying to understand the purpose of comments or are you trying to bury this question you don't like? See the answer to this meta I'm working on which actually does answer your meta question instead of continuing to rail on the original question.

@jpmc26: Honestly, it seems you have a vendetta against this. If there's discussion you require and the result of the discussion is that some clarifying edit to the question makes sense, then what's the problem. The comments should never be needed for the clarification. They would be the impetus to edit the question.

@dodgethesteamroller: He took "grow the beard" a little too far in that timeline.

comment In Star Trek, are there any (named) low-ranking older officers?
@Richard: Additional possible answer Lt.Cmdr Albert. He seems to be around 45-50, had a son presumably at least around 20. Now, Lt. Cmdr is not exactly a low rank, but usually everyone we meet makes Commander before they turn 50.

@Praxis: What are the relative probabilities of living 800 years over being reconstituted from an energy cloud? I don't know? Do you? Do you? ***Do you?***

comment Which character from Star Trek (TNG era) "died" the most times?
@jpmc26: I get your point, but clearly 23 people do approve of the question and 34 people do approve of Praxis's answer. That's the reality. I would also add, it's not disapproval for the mods to delete comments. Comments are to improve a question or answer and it's normal procedure to delete those comments if there are too many and after clarifications or suggestions to improve may have been applied to the questions or answers.

@Praxis: But what I really take issue with is "Azati Prime". This is just an episode that happens to take place in the future, so you're assuming Picard is dead. The reason this is not like "Living Witness" is because in LW, there is actual dialog about the crew of Voyager, paraphrasing: "It is safe to assume all your friends (incl. Janeway) are dead." EMH is presuming Janeway is dead. There's no mention of Picard in Azati Prime and nor even any relationship between any character in "Azati Prime" and Picard. You're really pushing a loophole to the point of breaking here.

@Praxis: Nice work. I still personally would have put Lonely Among Us in the Fringe cases section. He's not thought dead, just irretrievable. Same case as BOBW...

comment Were there ever any plans to have Picard be Wesley's real father?
I seriously doubt it. It would destroy the heroism of Picard (and Dr. Crusher). This is not a likely storyline, unless it was in an alternate timeline or there was some very heroic reason that Dr. Crusher and Picard both covered it up. Plus right from the beginning Picard hates Wesley, so he couldn't have any suspicions right from the start. I just don't see how this could fit in.

@jpmc26: Furthermore, the way this is dealt with in other questions like this and this excellent answer is to explain the clear cases and explain the borderline ones. Shows have ambiguity -- it won't always be possible to explain restrictions so that everyone agrees what is in or out. And furthermore if even you could, does it actually improve a question to add enough seemingly arbitrary restrictions to achieve that? Just answer the question and note the ambiguities.

@jpmc26: It's a frickin' sci-fi show with people dying up to 15 times -- of course it's hard to define what constitutes "dead" !!

@Ellesedil: Off is not dead, just like stasis is not dead.
