Saw an interview with Roddenberry (or about him... not sure which... it's been awhile back) where he stated that the Wesley character was based, largely, on Roddenberry's own youth. As a consequence he tended to get a bit touchy over criticism of the character. He once upbraided an audience at a convention on that issue with a remark to the effect, "You people seem to think I make these shows for you... I make them for me... and you're welcome to join me in enjoying them... or not!" (paraphrased there as I don't have the exact quote to hand). He went on to explain the Wesley character and why he liked Wesley...

So Happy B'Day, Wesley Crusher/Wil Wheaton! You were loved by Roddenberry in the way a man loves his own fondest memories of childhood... which may, actually, make Wesley one of the purest Roddenberry creations in the whole franchise...

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Wait 40yo ??? I'm 38yo so that makes me feel a lot better. I wouldn't have put him a day over 15, even with a beard.

Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.
