Starfleet's anti-Irish bias is showing.

They cut out the first part of the clip where he realizes his replacement is in place so fast he had no time to even take three steps. At least I think that's how it goes. There's also a part on DS9 that touches on the fact that O'Brein and Riker despise each other if I remember correctly. Though I do not remember any episodes of TNG where friction (or even interaction) between the two was shown.
Chicken the Did
Oh shit I did it again. Sorry! Wish POE had an undo feature.
"Oh shit I did it again. Sorry! Wish POE had an undo feature."
Tom Riker pales in comparison to pineapple cake.
Tom Riker was like a next gen character with a character. Without Tom Riker we'd never have seen the things Deanna saw in Will Riker, and why she wont get back together with him.
He is basically a real Star Trek character written as a throwaway by a writing team with no emotional or human capacities. TNG is largely written as what a computer thinks humans are like, and raised an entire generation of Star Trek fans with TV induced social autism.
Tom Riker is the only way out, guys. Embrace him.
Some of you are writing as if the writers were not fully self aware.
Didn't poetv have the clip of Tom removing his side beard? That was so wonderful, I presume that even the cast and crew were laughing at that.

A Frenchman and an Irishman walk into a transporter room...

Starfleet as equivalent to any other corporate employment is pretty telling.

That was actually pretty cold. You work a job for five years and no goodbye party? Oh wait that happened to me. Shit.
That's why I'll never give notice ahead of time when I'm quitting or getting a different job. You will not be given the same courtesy. Fuck em all.
I've got that beat for what might be one of the worst "fuck you" let go's short of having to train your replacement.
I found out 6 months ago, not only did I not get the promotion that opened up, my current job was being eliminated! Later I found out that the hiring manager (ten years younger than me) never publicly posted the opening (illegal), lied to me for 2 weeks that he couldn't figure out why it wasn't listed, then tells me the very first guy they interviewed (his friend) was so amazing that they immediately told HR to take down the listing because they found their guy.
"I feel bad that you didn't get to apply but we have to look out for the team. You can totally use me as a reference though!"
The guy starts working a month before my position ends. The hiring manager brings him around to my cubicle to shake my hand. I fight an overwhelming urge to mention he must be as amazing as the manager says to be able to find that hidden (non-existant) job posting.
My last day, the hiring manager decides to throw a welcome party for him. Out of the entire MONTH the guy had been working there already, my last day was chosen as his welcome party. No official acknowledgement that it was my last day, not even an email. Some other employees stopping by to say bye was it.
3:30 my supervisor asks to see me.
"Me and the directors were talking. And we have an offer for you."
Oh shit? Another position opened up and I'm going to get it?"
"How would you like to take off early at 4 instead of 6, and we'll mark down that you worked those two hours so you still get paid."
The offer was...getting a free paid two hours after over a year there.
"Does that sound good?"
"....I'm not sure what to say."
"Oh, well either way we have to collect your ID card so if you're staying till 6 hand it to one of us before we leave at 4."
So even that one barest scrap of gratitude was insincere. They just didn't trust me to be in the building with an ID card (that would have expired at 6 anyway) after all the management left for the day.
If only worker-on-boss shootings were more common maybe this would be less of a problem.
No, the only reason there are workplace shootings is because everyone there doesn't have a gun! YOU DON'T SEE ANY MASS SHOOTINGS AT A GUN RANGE, DO YA? HUH? HUH?
