NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Wesley Crusher Syndrome

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

The Wesley Crusher Syndrome is a common science fiction trap in which a juvenile character is shoehorned into the plot by making them more technically proficient than any adults present. Intervention by this character is then necessary in many tight situations. The term is derived from the oft-hated character of Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but similar characters have also been seen on shows like SeaQuest DSV and Cowboy Bebop.
