Should'nt there be a reference to her half brother? See:"The Muse" - Rebelstrike2005 15:49, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)

Besides that there is a lot more to talk about Diana Troy. -- Q 08:36, 20 Mar 2005 (EST)
There should also be mention of Kestra Troi. --Sasoriza
A discussion about Troi's notorious love of all things chocolate should be discussed including the somewhat racey explanation she gave about the proper way to eat a chocolate fudge sundae!
I've laid the groundwork, but I didn't want to do everything. Episode references have been provided and these can be used to find relevant data points. Note that not all major references are listed, only the ones I could think of. I will continue to work on this article, but I encourage assistance. --Shran 05:27, 2 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Here's what needs to be pointed out in each reference.
Aboard the Enterprise-D
Aboard the Enterprise-E
William T. Riker
Alternate Timelines
Like I said, this probably isn't a complete list of references, so use other episodes as deemed necessary. Don't repeat information. --Shran 05:44, 2 Jul 2005 (UTC)
What about her relationship with Data? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).


Didn't she die in 2376? zsingaya 10:17, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)

No. Remember that Star Trek Nemesis is set in 2379 and Deanna was very much alive in the film. Deanna did die in an alternate future, however, as seen in "All Good Things...".--Scimitar 13:10, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Let's not forget the alternate future of ST:G where the entire crew of the Enterprise-D is killed by the Nexus, including Troi.-- 19:54, May 21, 2012 (UTC)


Um, reading the section on Will, isnt it allmost an exact copy from Will's secion on Deanna? --AmdrBoltz 18:40, 3 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yes, it is. It's there just for the sake of having information there, and it is relevant and correct. As the article expands, much of the section on Will Riker will likely be re-edited to produce more original document. --Shran 18:48, 3 Jul 2005 (UTC)

OK. --AmdrBoltz 19:12, 3 Jul 2005 (UTC)


Just looking at stills from "Conundrum", it lists her father as 'Alex'. This should be mentioned somewhere, but I'm not sure where.. Skold 11:48, 19 January 2006 (UTC)


Did Troi ever wear a standard uniform before "Chain of Command"? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

She did in "Encounter at Farpoint". --Alan del Beccio 21:51, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Piloting Skills

I've only seen Deanna pilot a starship twice. The first time in Star Trek Generations she crashed-landed on Veridian III. The second time, in Star Trek Nemesis she runs into another ship, albiet on orders from CaptainPicard. Given her track record, shouldn't she take a class on piloting a starship? Something to thing about. Mainphramephreak 08:30, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

While funny (there are those of us who feel that all Betazoid women make bad helmsmen), unless you plan to make an edition of this to the article (and I do not see how that could be done well), then the talk page isn't really the place for this. They are not for idle chit-chat. --OuroborosCobra talk 08:34, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Deanna's Title

I am wondering if Deanna's status as a daughter of the fifth house should warrant some mention in the summery. Being a daughter of Lwaxana Troi, Deanna would also belong the fifth house. She would also, IMHO, be heir to the Sacred Chalice of Rixx and possibly the Holy Rings. I'm just wondering if anyone seconds these thoughts. Willie 09:39, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Whether she held any of these titles is not mentioned in canon. There are a number of plausible explanations to say that she would NOT have these titles. For example, she might only inherit them when her mother dies. That, or she might not get them at all since she is half human. Sine both, especially the latter, is plausible, we should not speculate in the article as to whether she holds these titles. --OuroborosCobra talk 15:25, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
its also worth mentioning that, to my knowledge, it was never actually said that the sacred chalice and Lwaxana's titles were something you inherited. it could well have been a title that you won through election or merit. This is pointless supposition by the way.– 01:17, December 8, 2010 (UTC)oisín


Deanna is probably foreign (anywhere from Italian, Greek, Hungarian, Russian, Icelandic, etc.) - Ok, ok, I get what you mean, but foreign is a relative term. I'm Hungarian, so I would not consider her foreign if she was also Hungarian. I think you should rephrase that part. hu:user:Villy at Wikipedia (


Perhaps I'm missing something, but there is nothing under this subhead (except the picture of the wedding ceremony) that has anything to do with marriage. I don't have access to the film to be able to make any changes or add any relevant information myself, but maybe someone else can. - Bridge 23:58, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

LtCmdr-Vulcan to Bridge, mission complete. I think it looks better now. Especially about the part that the old Marriage-subsection was about her final voyage serving aboard the Enterprise. So i moved that part to the Ent-E subsection, and rewrote the Marriage-subsection. But the picture is not rewritten ;-) -- Örlogskapten. Qapl'a! 00:30, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Bridge to LtCmdr-Vulcan, mission continuing. It definitely is better and thanks for fixing it. I'm afraid I did go behind you for some minor cleanup (a missing bracket, a couple parentheses, nothing too fancy). One question, though: Did Riker really take Deanna's name? I thought that was just a joke when Picard called him "Mr. Troi." - Bridge 00:46, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Picard did not seem to be joking. Also, I can't remember Will be called Riker after that scene in the movie. or never in the entire movie if my memory is correct. So on your question: the answer is yes. He did take Deanna's surname. Nothing is contradicting that. Picard said "your wife would never forgive me if anything happened to you. You have the bridge, Mr Troi".
And thanks for fixing a little in my aftermath :-). that is what a wiki is made for.-- Örlogskapten. Qapl'a! 01:36, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Don't read too much into Picard's "You have the bridge, Mr. Troi" quip. It was, indeed, only a joke (hence his grin and the laughter on the bridge), and Riker was still Riker by the end of the film. --From Andoria with Love 15:19, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't Deanna name read Commander Deanna Riker (nee) Troi. I would assume that she would have taken her husband's last name just as her mother did when she took Deanna's father's surname... Just a thought.. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
Many people choose to keep their own names. Deanna's mother did through her following marriages, and Betazed tradition was for the husband to take the wife's name. -- sulfur 10:28, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Trois abilities

first of all I know I know I havn't joined as a member yet, I keep reading this site at work and forget to sign up once I'm at home. anyways, in the episode The Price Troi stated she was able to sense that the Ferengi was not distressed while she was uncovering Rals deception.Yet this article states that betazoids cannot read ferengi, just thought that would be good Miscellaneous information to add. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Yeah, it's a nitpick and we frown upon such additions. We can't keep putting little inconsistencies in articles else it will never end. Writers make mistakes there's not much more we can do about it. :) – Morder 01:30, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Imzadi link?!

I am new to the discussion list, but please say and eliminate if this message is not approciate!! Anyway, did anyone read "Imzadi" Deanna died in that novel and some of the "ALL GOOD THINGS . . . " elements mirrored that! I heard from a reliable source that elements of Imzadi were used for that part of the episode? Does anyone have any onfo.prove of that?! ````AL

Counselor Training!

TO MY KNowledge, Starfleet Counselor training is 4 Academy normal years added to 4 Starfleet Academy years, I got this from a creadible Starfleet Academy novel? How could deanna grad. so quickly! ````AL

Novels aren't canon, so neither are those data, I'm afraid. ~ Lexi 17:17, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

Early life and career

Corrected a spelling error in this section, "After Riker was assigned to the USS Potemkin the two planned to spend (originally spent) their holidays together on Risa in 2361" ````Kay

Thanks for the fix. Just so that you know, you don't have to tell us here on the talk page when you perform routine maintenance. That type of information can be put in the edit summary. Thanks again for fixing the spelling error. --OuroborosCobra talk 17:27, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Series Finales

This article says that Troi, Riker, and Obrien were the only characters that were in two series finales. Shouldn't Worf be on this list, since he was in "All Good Things...", and "What You Leave Behind"?Icecreamdif 17:22, 27 August 2009 (UTC)


a novel says her brothers name is Barin The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

"A novel"? Which one? Also, novels are non-canon. -- sulfur 19:33, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Thomas Riker

Why is Thomas Riker not listed as a relative? Danholden4006 (talk) 06:07, October 8, 2013 (UTC)


I've removed the following speculations: "It remains unclear whether Troi was decorated by Starfleet after this incident, but she likely was," and, "This incident likely solidified Troi's determination to become a line officer and later complete the Bridge Officer's Test." --Defiant (talk) 11:52, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

I've also removed the supposition (or at least what seems to be a theory) that Troi's hair decorations were "trappings of her aristocratic status as a Daughter of the Fifth House on Betazed." Of course, if that is canonical, it should be readded to the page, with an episode citation this time, not unceremoniously dumped on the page apparently as "background information". --Defiant (talk) 12:02, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

I've also removed a list of "further references". At least most of these seem to have already been covered in the article, and I'm therefore not sure why these episodes were listed. Anyway, the list was as follows:

I've also removed the uncited statement, "This incident served to solidify Troi's career direction towards service as a line officer, when she ultimately successfully completed the Bridge Officer's Test." This too seems to either be in-universe info or speculation, and (again) should not have been added as bginfo. I've also removed an image, as I didn't feel it (like the list) gave much to the article either. --Defiant (talk) 12:44, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

I've removed the following 2 notes: "It remains unclear whether Deanna went to the university before, after, or concurrently with attending Starfleet Academy," and "Deanna had apparently been taking Starfleet courses while studying on Betazed. Even though Starfleet Command is a four-year curriculum, it is possible that Deanna's studies on Betazed did not require her to fulfill all four years at the Academy." Firstly, we don't list uncertainties. Secondly, we don't include speculations. I've also removed a note that stated, "In 'Encounter at Farpoint', Riker refers to Troi as 'lieutenant' even though she wears the insignia of a lieutenant commander." While this is technically "good" info to keep, the way it's formatted here reads much like a nitpick and duplicates info already included in the bginfo section, where it reads a lot better, mentioning that the reference to her as a "lieutenant" was a hold-over from an early script. Now to find a source to substantiate that claim.... --Defiant (talk) 16:50, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

I've also removed this uncertainty: "Lwaxana is a daughter of the Fifth House of Betazed, but it was never made clear whether or not Deanna also holds or stands to inherit the title, or for that matter the Sacred Chalice of Rixx or the Holy Rings of Betazed." --Defiant (talk) 15:01, January 25, 2017 (UTC)

I've also removed the following speculations about Riker: "Others may have called him 'Bill' in their lives outside the episodes. Similarly, Troi may have used the name more than twice off-screen." --Defiant (talk) 15:16, January 25, 2017 (UTC)

Appearance in DS9?

According to the content of "Flashback" and "Death Wish" Deanna Troi is one of the few characters to appear in TNG, Voyager and DS9. Is someone able to tell which DS9-Episode we are talking about? 16:50, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

The articles don't say TNG, VOY and DS9 - they say three live-action series. Troi appears in TNG, VOY and ENT. -- Michael Warren | Talk 17:07, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

Multiple Assaults

I know it is insensitive but should there not be mention of the multiple assaults she suffered. She was impregnated without her consent in "The Child", mentally raped in "Violations" and Star Trek Nemesis and other's negative emotions forced on her in "Man of the People" and "Eye of the Beholder". Tripodssj6 (talk) 19:16, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Those are all situations that should be referenced, how it's formatted (whether together or chronologically) may fall to how a user like yourself decides to write it. Worf has an "ailments and injuries" subsection, but for Miles O'Brien, who also had a number of traumatic experiences, I think it's interwoven chronologically in his life. - AJHalliwell (talk) 19:47, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
