Captain Picard, above all, is married to his job. that's all it took and opposites attract because the two hit it off in the strangest of ways. But Captain Picard's and Doctor Beverly Crusher's relationship was deep and complex. I was watching Attached today and it was obvious Picard was ready to He tried to make a personal relationship work with the female officer. Of course Q tries to exploit this apparent weakness in Picard and in some ways manages to do this. Picard orders his crew to remain behind in.
She also admits that it brought back painful memories of those years when she saw her son Wesley going through similar ridicule as a child. It was her grandmother's career as a healer and Beverly's own caring, high intelligence, and sensitivity that largely sparked Beverly's lifelong interest in medicine and healing the sick and wounded. Starfleet Academy[ edit ] Crusher attended Starfleet Academy from to during which she attended medical school.
While attending the academy, she became romantically involved with fellow cadet Jack Crusher.
They were introduced by their friend, Walker Keel. She graduated top of her class and married Jack in She had also been called "the Dancing Doctor" when she was at the academy and had won multiple awards at a dance competition in St. Inshe started an internship with Dr.
A year later, she gave birth to a son named Wesley Crusher. Jack died on an away mission when Wesley was 5 years old. Captain Picard, who was commanding the Stargazer at the time, brought home the body of Jack. She never fully recovered from his death. Crusher and Captain Picard were also acquaintances while the character's husband was alive, as Picard and Jack Crusher were friends. At the beginning of the series, Picard and Dr.
Crusher have not seen or heard from each other since Jack's death. Crusher's son Wesley truly meet face to face. Later in her life she realizes Picard has fallen in love with her. During the progression of the series, the attraction or affection between the two is made more apparent, though both Crusher and Picard try to conceal their feelings; neither wants to admit to the other how they feel, though they have both been seen on separate occasions talking with other crew members about it, most notably, William Riker and Deanna Troi.
The two appear to become closer and closer throughout the series, starting with the first-season episode " The Naked Now ".
Their relationship ultimately takes its biggest leap forward in " Attached ", when the two are linked telepathically, leading to the revelation of deep romantic feelings they share for each other.
At the end of this episode, a budding hint of a romantic relationship is slowed down when a blushing Beverly tells Jean-Luc, "Perhaps we should be afraid", implying that she's not ready to take that step forward in their relationship.

However, only a handful of episodes later in " Sub Rosa ", it is revealed that neither Beverly or Jean-Luc has been able to let go of those feelings and they are back to where they started, trying to pretend the feelings don't exist and that they have no problem being "just friends" with one another.
In the series finale " All Good Things Crusher and Captain Picard had been married and then divorced — still evidently having feelings for each other after so many years. Little information is given about the circumstances of their marriage or separation. In the present, during the episode, the two share a kiss.
However that timeline, as well as that version of the future, is destroyed when Picard changes the past. In the four Next Generation movies, the flirtation between Dr.
Crusher and Captain Picard remains, though it is not as obvious as previous episodes and most certainly not part of the substantial movie plots. The most noteworthy moment between the two happens in one of the deleted scenes of the last Next Generation movie, Star Trek Nemesis.
Following the television series and films, the relationship between Dr. Crusher and Captain Picard continued throughout the non-canonical Star Trek: The Next Generation Pocket Books series. Beverly and Jean-Luc have married, but still serve together on the Enterprise-E.
On board the Enterprise[ edit ] Dr. Crusher was appointed Chief Medical Officer of the Federation starship Enterprise-D inand joined the ship at Farpoint Station with Wesley, reporting on board on stardate An energy-based lifeform from the Beta Renner cloud was accidentally trapped aboard the Enterprise later in It initially inhabited Lieutenant Worf's body, but next moved to Crusher.
It controlled her for a brief period of time, attempting to learn how to use the Enterprise navigational systems in order to return home. The being then transferred itself to the ship's computer system, then took control of Captain Picard. In midCaptain Picard invited Crusher on a holodeck adventure set in the fictional world of Dixon Hill.
They were joined by Data and ship's historian, Whalen. Unfortunately, a malfunction in the holodeck systems due to a Jarada scan caused the safeties to become disengaged, trapping the group at the whim of Cyrus Redblock.

They were later freed, but not before Redblock shot Whalen and threatened to kill Beverly. Doctor Crusher was offered a position as head of Starfleet Medical in and left the Enterprise during that year. She was replaced by Dr. While at Starfleet Medical, she decided to return to the ship as soon as it was allowed the following year. So, since they would all be on stage in the afternoon, I figured slipping to the vendors room was a safe bet.
In a weekend full of highlights and adrenaline rushes, one of the best times was just standing in line for the chance to get a few precious seconds with the TNG actors.
I grew up watching these guys on TV and just getting to say hello to them is amazingly surreal. Most of my interactions with them were pretty short, but I loved my conversation with Marina Sirtis Troi.
It was just a few quick moments, but she was very kind. During autograph signing sessions, the conversations can feel very rote and you just get pushed through without much more than two or three words.
But Marina was great. She offered to personalize my picture, which no one else did, and she even chastised the others for failing to do so. It was a nice moment, and I genuinely appreciate Marina reaching out a bit.
Getting to speak with Jonathan Frakes was similarly surreal. I was wearing my Parisses Squares a physical and dangerous sport in the Star Trek universeand he loved it. It also further solidified how well some of these actors know Star Trek.
For him to know what Parisses Squares is and to recognize it on a shirt requires more than a passing knowledge of his own scenes on the show. My interaction with Frakes led me to purchase a photo op with him. And what better opportunity to get a photo with Jonathan Frakes than after he gushed about my shirt?
When I went to the photo op some several hours after our interaction, he recognized me and my shirt immediately.Picard/Crusher - Wait
He even made the comment that he had seen my tweet about liking my shirt. I had to laugh when I finally got my copy of this photo. My smile is so big. After getting my autographs, I attended the Star Trek costume contest.
Trekkies can do some really creative costumes.
What kept Crusher and Picard apart? | The Trek BBS
The Tribble-Kirk and Captain Pike were my favorites. He looks exactly like Captain Pike did in The Menagerie. The costume contest was a lot of fun, and as it was running long, Max Grodenchik Rom and Aron Eisenberg Nog in full Ferengi dressed ended up crashing the contest because their panel was after the contest.
Max and Aron certainly took their task to heart and came out on stage after the costume contest doing a cornily-written skit about the two Ferengi having landed in Dallas, Texas in the 21st century. It was a true sign of how much fun Star Trek actors can be.
Rom and Nog in full costume. One of the coolest things about the Ferengi panel for me was that Max and Aron told the audience that we could ask questions of them, but they said the questions could be addressed to either Max and Aron or Rom and Nog.
It definitely takes a pretty deep understanding of the characters and the show to be able to answer questions generally in character.
In addition to being a very funny and amusing panel, Max and Aron also took some time to be very serious, and Aron gave some of the most emotional moments of the entire convention. He legitimately teared up discussing his favorite moment in all of DS9.

His discussion of prejudice and not judging people by their appearance was truly impactful. I definitely teared up just listening to him talk about it. Aron, who received a kidney transplant at the end ofalso gave the perfect reminder of why Trekkies are so amazing. His girlfriend had started some sort of a gofundme page to raise money to help with their living expenses during the kidney transplant, and many Trekkies donated. Aron gave truly heartfelt thanks to the crowd.
He was truly so emotional he could barely get the words out, and he pretty much acknowledged that he owes his life to Star Trek. Later in the day, the first three TNG panels occurred. These two play off of each other very well. Gates came out dancing for her panel, which was kind of fun to see. She was similarly very interesting, and I really loved that one of the audience members asked her about her experiences choreographing the movie Labyrinth.
Gates also spent a significant amount of time discussing the personality conflicts that she encountered during season 1 of TNG, and she also discussed what it meant for her to come back. This was particularly interesting for me. Pulaski during season 2 of TNG, and it was certainly timely to get some more information on what led Crusher to leave the show temporarily.
Crusher of season 1 was nowhere to be found when she came back for season 3. She noted that the relationship with Picard had essentially been written out of the show, and so many other strong aspects of her character had been watered down. Gates has long been one of my favorite actresses on TNG, and my experiences meeting her for the first time at Trektacular are probably a lot of why I find cons so fulfilling.
He was, predictably, wonderful. The one thing that stood out to me about Frakes was that, every time an audience member came up to ask a question, he would walk to the end of the stage and sit on the edge.
This brought him nearly face to face with the audience member, and I thought that was a nice personal touch that really made him feel more human. Me with Connor and Dominic before karaoke.
These two guys had pretty obviously started partying ahead of karaoke, and they were having a wonderful time with this photo op. The night ended with a karaoke party hosted by Dominic Keating and Connir Trineer.
