Please tell: what was the storyline about Riker and Troi? Were they still married? What were they up to?
I miss them. (But I do have their every episode on DVD.)
The end of Enterprise. Thud.
Erm, they seemed to be back on board the Enterprise under Picard (but mysteriously looking 15 years older) and they were viewing the story about Archer on the holodeck. It all seemed to relate somehow to Riker's trauma about the Pegasus.
To tell the truth it didn't make a whole lot of sense.
It was just nice to see them again.
Oh- and we heard Data speaking over the inter-com.
Good old Data.
They just had to go kill him off.
They killed him off?
I didn't know that. Did it happen in one of the movies?
How do you kill an android? Can't you just replicate the circuitry and programming and bring him back to life?
Remember, his creator was dead and they didn't actually have the ability to build him again. It was in the last movie and he was destroyed beyond repair; sacrificed himself. It was, actually, perfect, imo.
O dear. How sad.
I guess I'm going to have to get hold of that movie....
Nemesis is the name of it. I thought it was the perfect close to TNG, as a rabid TNG fan. I hope you like it. :)

Ah, I'm sorry, Tony.
Of course, he got exploded saving Captain Picard.
His final words:
I'm sorry to be the one to tell you.
I think it was Spiner's own idea. And I really think the last movie was the last of the Next Generation.
I would love to watch the Next Generation go on and on, but it is a little disquieting to watch people age and still try to climb up rock faces and race after villains--and, saddest, trying to stuff themselves into their suits.
Yes. At least with TNG we were spared the jokes about corsets and toupees that dogged the later adventures of Kirk's crew.
I guess I need to see that final movie. The thing is I never liked the movies all that much. It seemed to me that Trek belonged on TV- and that the characters were diminished by big budgets and expensive effects.

Actually Brent Spiner had been wanting out for a while.
Hey, Riker and Troi never married. She married Worf - and then died of some strange disease, and Riker wouldn't speak to Troi after that.

You're thinking of the final episode, during which Picard went back and forth through time and was given glimpses of possible futures.
In the final movie, Troi and Riker were married by Picard.
If you'll recall, in the final TV show, Picard said the timelines were only possibilities, and had probably been altered by their intervention.
Aren't you thinking of Dax?
no I'm not thinking of Dax. I thought that was stupid, on DS9.
BTW, I watched DS 9 long after it was any good because I thought Julian (the doc) was very nice to look at.
Dax died in a very timely fashion- before the series became really, irremediably awful.
