Deanna is not her own mother. ;) Should read Lwaxana.

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    I think he just stopped himself from saying "Deanna's" before he had said the 's'.

    I think you read it in a different way to me. Riker accidentally referred to Counselor Troi as the less formal “Deanna”, but then corrected himself.

    That's what I meant. :)
  • Yes, it reads like he was forcing himself to not use her first name unprofessionally.

    Oh I suppose it could be read that way. But then they should've used an em dash or something, rather than an ellipsis.

    "Contact Deanna— Counselor Troi's mother..."

    It's still clumsy to write, either way, though.

    Edit: You're right though, Jassada — it would've made more sense if it Deanna had been written with an apostrophe "s" at the end.

    Yeah it’s definitely clumsy.
    The fact that it can be read and understood in the wrong way proves that.

    It’s one of those things that is easy to convey when speaking but hard do put into text.

    This is another reason why we need Frakes to do some voice acting for this game.
