    I like Lt. Barclay just fine, however, he’s not a woman.

    Great Show.. topic of mental illness is alway a tough thing to talk about.

    as it goes for in the workplace. I don’t think it has to do anything about labour laws, but has more to do with how most managers aren’t trained or given the knowledge how to deal with someone that suffering from some kind of mental illness

    that why the crew of Enterprise D handled things way they did. Deanna Troi is the only one that should have knowledge how to notice someone like him is suffering from something and how to help him with it. which can be slow. but later years he does show some improvement and crew members treat him better. If future TV shows going to use someone with mental illness i hope they can do more research on the topic and show the right way how to deal with someone with Mental illness
