Commander Counselor Deanna Troi, Daughter of The Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Riix, Heir to the Holy Rings of Beta-Humanity

Assimilate This!

While the United Federation of Planets (roughly analogous to the United Nations) fiercely resists the Borg's battle mantra, "You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile," Federation culture consistently encourages and enforces assimilation into its Human norm.  Troi is promoted as she becomes more Human and less Betazoid.  She loses her accent, more readily questions her mother's traditions, and learns to suppress her empathy to assume command.

To think on...

-How does she change over time? Dress, speech, hobbies, responsibilities, ways of interacting with other people?
-How do others react to these changes?
-How does she think and feel about her transformation?
-Does the plot explain why she changes? Her initiative or in response to someone's coercion?
