Most people who don't like him either say it's because he's "annoyingly smart" - something that can be a likable trait about a character when utilized judiciously - or that they just can't explain why he gets on their nerves. Most people who do like him were 12 in and either thought he was oh so dreamy or the one character on the ship they could relate kind of to. On the surface, Wesley makes perfect sense: the son of a single mother and doctor, he's a young prodigy poised to run the ship someday. That's not how he turns out, however, and somewhere along the line he ends up being one of the most loathed characters in the history of Star Trek. His attitude comes off smug when he only means to be confident. In another movie, on another character, Wheaton pulls it off as charming, but for some reason in Star Trek , among the adult cast and futuristic setting, he sends eyes rolling when he's onscreen.
His Starfleet career, already turned sour by a scandal at the Academy, was cut short when he renounced ties with the UFP and became a protege of the transdimensional Tau Alphan known as The Traveler. Crusher eventually returned to Starfleet and, prior to , he became a full-fledged officer, holding the rank of lieutenant junior grade in Star Trek Nemesis. Even as early as 10 weeks old, baby Wesley resembled his mother and his father's parents , at least in Jack's opinion. Beverly gave their son her own maiden name for his middle name; Wes's first name had been the middle name of his paternal great-grandfather.
Basically, the moral of so many episodes of TNG was basically Hey adults! Besides Ashley Judd? This is the kind of thing Wesley Crusher was capable of on a bad day. I know why these people are so annoyed by Wesley. So, it makes that he would lead the children in a revolution against adults. He and the other children on the Enterprise are taken by a race of beings called the Aldeans, whose civilization is dying out because they are all infertile.
Log in or Sign up. The Trek BBS. Why did Wil Weaton leave the show? Sorry if this has been covered before but I was wondering about this the other day. Did the actor just decide to move on or did the producers decide to write the character out of the show? Anybody know? ToddKent , Mar 29,
October 5, By: TrekMovie. I got so excited for it because I love Patrick and I love that character. And the Next Gen timeline, which is also the Deep Space timeline, is the timeline that I love the most. It might be cheating a bit because I was part of that timeline so I am emotionally invested in it, but I was a fan before I was part of the show. I am thrilled we are going to get to see what Picard is doing now. I am excited about that.
