Star Trek: The Next Generation is a beloved sci-fi series with a beloved cast. But comicbook.com reports that one of those cast members, Marina Sirtis, believes she was nearly fired from the show before the end of the first season. Speaking at Star Trek Las Vegas, Sirtis explained that if not for Denise Crosby choosing to quit the show after the first season, she believes she would have been fired instead. Crosby played Lt. Tasha YarShe. She noted that her character, ships' counselor Deanna Troi, had empathic abilities that she inherited as part of her half-Betazoid lineage. Those abilities were seen as problematic by some of the writers and so they wrote her out of many scenes.
