Jeri Taylor’s Impact on TNG

If there’s anything I wanted to do more of, it was developing the characters of Crusher and Troi because I thought they were underused and would like to flesh them out and make them more rounded and interesting people. There is a very small way in which I sometimes remind people about the role of women and sometimes they remind me. I’m not saying that this was a staff of men and I had to come in and show them the way, but maybe it was something a little more in the foreground with me than with some of the others
