Audrey Ferenc at The Toast has an article on a topic that hadn’t occurred to me before; the sad plants of Star Trek TNG, which appear to be placed by a neophyte real estate agent in an inept attempt at staging. Many plants appear in several roles; Freudian symbols for Ryker’s boners, or, from another angle, assist Troi in her duties. Others play charming cocktail fascinators on Picard or a jealous crewmate as Wesley flirts with Ashley Judd.
