I felt unemotional. Never cared for Tashar Yar and was glad she did not hang around on the show. What was sad though was how she died. A black glob of goo kills her? Rather pathetic I think.

Didn't care. She wasn't in the series long enough for me to care, but that wouldn't have mattered. Didn't care for the character, nor the actress.


Just my humble opinion.

 Roger That! She didn't want to get typecast either.

Yeah, about that career....what's she doing now?


Maybe getting typecast is better than not getting cast at all.

I thought her death was one of the cheapest and most meaningless deaths in the history of Trek. Unlike Trip, she didn't die trying to save her captain. She didn't die saving some race from oblivion or saving the ship from certain doom. She just died.


And that is the tragedy of it. While most of the fans don't like the notion that she died for nothing, the reality of life is that sometimes people DO have deaths that are meaningless and/or make no sense. We have to take solace in the fact that her life had meaning, that she rose above her situation and bettered herself. And Tasha Yar did touch the lives of many, both on and off the Enterprise.


On a side note, the funeral scene still makes me cry to this day.

After one short season I had already had enough of Yar.  We've got house rules for a drinking game, every time she mentions the rape gangs we take a drink.  Similar rules for Major Kira in DS9, any time she goes off on a "...back in the Resistance...", we take a drink.

I would have preferred Sela & Tomalak to what they did do for sure.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

I loved the character. And she so belonged to TNG for me and than she just dies such stupid death (but that's how the writers want it, unfortunately).

Her soliloquy at the end was the best part...

That is so true


I loved that part. It even made me cry harder when she said that. And the look on Data's face was very cute.

Honestly, my reaction was "Aw! *sad face* That's unfortunate! Oh well. Moving on!" However, though I am not a Tasha fan, I believe that her character had a lot of potential and she was never given a chance to fully bloom. Except for that ridiculous incident with Data (which, seriously, I pretend never happened), I think she would have made another great "best friend" for Data, maybe even a true romantic interest in the Star Trek films after he received his emotion chip. Her death was ridiculous and pointless, and happened way too fast. Very disappointing, that way.


Crosby made a helluva bad move in leaving the show; no matter what she says about "not regreting" her decision, there is no question that she now knows she acted foolishly.
