Mothers on TNG.
The characters on The Next Generation, whether regular characters or guest stars are shaped by the important people in their lives, including their parents. On the show, we see a number of different mothers and mother figures. Their interactions with their children and the crew help to reveal important aspects of their lives that we might not otherwise see and of parenting in the 24th century.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser take the opportunity as Mother's Day approaches in the United States to discuss the important mothers on The Next Generation and the impact that they have on their children and the show. The characters discussed are Lwaxana Troi, Deanna Troi, Beverly Crusher, Helena Rozhenko, Julianna Tainer, K’Ehleyr, Keiko O'Brien, Silva La Forge, and Guinan.
