Of all of the characters, Worf definitely go the most action over the years...
thats because of the Great Birds half and half thing
Half Vulcan Half Klingon Half Betazoid Half Budgie Half bajoran/half cardassian

I don't think anyone else would have done a better job than Will Wheaton, the character itself was fundamentally flawed...
I was just thinking someone less annoying

That's true, and strong cultural attachments... That said, Great-great-great-great Grandma chose to leave the lifestyle and married into a Setled Family
Well thats always the ladies choice

I have to admit, I really don't think that another actor would've fared any better with the material as to how the character was written...

Why do you think Captains have ready rooms?

Because there are no bathrooms ANYWHERE in starfleet?

Ah but he has so many additional options (like morphing into britany spears and singing)

And tom cruise who laid down over 200 rules for the films including that at no time could he be seen standing next to a taller woman without a perspective shot to correct it

There was one on the Enterprise-D on the starboard side of the bridge, directly opposite the doors to the conference lounge... I think ready rooms where added so Captains would have somewhere private to bugger Ensigns and do lines of chop...

Can definitely imagine the Doctor doing something like that. Purely to broaden his understanding of the HUman condition, of course...

Hmm maybe

Wesley is the father of captain piccard and will go back in time with the traveller and father him

OR
Wesley could be piccards son BUT could also be the son of any of a dozen other people (and we drag out for five seasons whose he is )

OR Wesley is the future saviour of humanity in the war against the machines and data has been secretly sent from the future to kill him
