Top 50 Star Trek Characters – #43 Wesley Crusher
Wesley Crusher was the son of Dr. Beverly Crusher, who was Chief Medical Officer aboard the Enterprise-D.
During the early days of the series, Wesley was often the one to “save the day”, despite the experienced officers he was surrounded with. Eventually he was made acting Ensign and served as the helm officer, before eventually leaving for the Academy. As the series progressed Wesley was no longer a series regular and made various guest appearances towards the end of the show.
Perhaps the joke is on us, as this occasionally annoying young boy would grow up and move on to a higher plane of existence with the help of The Traveler.
