Okay so this is going to really bother me:
WHY ARE THEIR UNIFORMS DIFFERENT SHADES OF BLUE? THEY ARE BOTH CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICERS.
Turns out the mismatching uniforms aren’t an issue because Dr. Quaice (on the right) has bigger problems—namely, he disappears and only Beverly Crusher remembers who he is. The ship’s crew quickly dissipate over hours, from a population of 1000 to 114—and only Beverly Crusher seems to notice that everyone’s disappearing.
Turns out Wesley was doing an experiment with “Warp Bubbles” and Dr. Crusher was somehow the only person affected, or I guess, not affected? Everyone disappears, so in the end it’s just Beverly and Computer, hanging out on the bridge of the Enterprise, trying to solve the quantum physics problems set into play by some ensign who really only got the position because his mom is a doctor. #Nepotism #CrusherDontCare #ThisIsntTwitter
Picard proposes to Beverly on the Bridge! So Romantic!
So in Futurama, almost every single episode’s plot is caused by a conflict set in motion by Bender Bending Rodriguez. Like, Bender wants to make money so he sells his body for cash at a pawn shop, enabling the head of President Nixon to enter into election for President of Earth “A Head in the Polls” Ep. 3 Season 2.
OR Bender wants to catch a larger fish than Fry so he uses the professor’s “unbreakable” diamond filament—conveniently attached to the Planet Express ship—to fish and snags a ginormous Grouper that drags them down to the Lost City of Atlanta “The Deep South” Ep. 12 Season 2.
Anyway, I wonder if Wesley is like the Bender of TNG. I know he isn’t—he doesn’t usually derail the functioning of the Enterprise (because often he’s the only person who can fix a problem despite having no experience, no training, and IDK, an adolescent’s body) but he sure seems to f*** things up in this episode.
