“Well, one night after I had turned it down, he [Gene Roddenberry] called me from his outdoor Jacuzzi and told me to “Just take the part.” He assured me I was to be the love interest of Picard and a sort of Chief Surgeon of the Universe, plus a good mother. It was “a great part, a new kind of female role.” But it was kind of strange to hear the water jets pumping in the background. It was my first-ever Jacuzzi call, you know. He said, “Take the part and you, too, can have a Jacuzzi in your backyard.” But I put a pool in instead.”

The wedding of Captain Jean-Luc Picard to Doctor Beverly Crusher was a small, private affair overseen by the mayor of La Barre, France, and witnessed by the groom’s sister-in-law and the mayor’s wife. At least, that’s what the happy couple always told their friends. On the anniversary of that blessed day, however, Worf and Geordi La Forge manage to coax the real story out of the pair, to discover a tale of mythical treasure and a lost civilization in the Delta Quadrant. It all begins when the omnipotent being Q crashes the festivities, declaring himself best man and bringing along an unwilling guest as a surprise for the groom.
I’m so excited!!!!!
Hell yeahhhhhh!!!!! Been waiting for this since you last mentioned it ages ago! Even tho it’s a novella it looks like a good lengthy piece at 120 pages, I’m stoked :D (but why is Q on the cover and not them making out or something lmao come ON!)
