Petition to make These Are The Voyages recognized by the entire fandom as Riker’s bad fan fiction.
I feel offended on Will Riker’s behalf that anyone would think he would write such a mess. No no, William T. Riker’s holoprograms have well-researched plots and sophisticated character development and like 500% more boobies.
Oh god, then who wrote that thing?
SOMEBODY WROTE IT AND I WANT ANSWERS FOR THIS ATROCITY.
Wesley… actually… would make sense. It’s poorly researched and all the characters are really over-the-top. It’s a teenager’s first fanfic.
But there’s no awkward sex scenes!
How can it be a teenager’s first fanfic if there are no awkward sex scenes!?
They just couldn’t put the awkward sex scenes on TV but they were there.
Think about it: not only is Wesley writing awkward sex scenes, he’s writing awkward sex scenes about historical figures who were born about 240 years before his time.
That would be like somebody writing erotic fanfiction about Beethoven.
