Beverly and Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation Posted March 1, 2007 It would have changed the dynamics of the plot lines. Beverly and Dianna were awfully fickle and fell in and out of relationships at the drop of a hat. The Captain had his own relationship plots also. I rather enjoyed the "undertones" their relationship (Picard and Crusher) had. There would have been a lot of story lines lost. IMHO.
