Riker and Troi explore Quantum's Ready Room and comment on how small it is. "How could Quantum survive without a fish tank?" Troi marvels. Lady, he had a dog. They're a bit more responsive. Plus, if you recall, Riker ATE that fish in the fish tank. Troi walks up to the door and stops. She looks around. Riker hastens to her side and says, "Allow me." He pushes a button and the door slides open. On the Bridge, Riker reminds her about the dog. "Right!" Troi remembers. "One of the Musketeers!" Troi sits in the chair: "Ooh, comfy!" I've heard that that chair actually isn't comfortable at all. "No seat for the first officer?" Riker notes. "Perhaps Quantum wasn't as fussy as Captain Picard when it came to people sitting in his chair," Troi digs. What about Kirk? He didn't have a chair for the first officer either. And he seemed to sit on a platform high above everyone else -- what does that say? Besides, I didn't think Picard was that fussy about people sitting in his chair -- he just didn't want Wesley doing it on the off chance he'd ruin the leather with one of his many pee-pee dances. Troi plays with things, and T'Pol's viewer pops out, to her delight. She remembers that from a photograph. "Kirk's ship had one, I think," Riker adds unnecessarily. Really unnecessarily. We all know Kirk's ship had it and we all rejoiced in it when we first saw it -- there was no need for Riker to ram it down our throats. There's already a sizeable lump there as it is.
