The Enterprise-D is very often to be found in dangerous situations, with casualties reported on, say, Deck 10 and fatalities resulting from attacks by enemy ships.

Is there any reference, in any episodes or EU material, as to how often, if ever, the civilian children on board the Enterprise-D were numbered among the civilian casualties?

  • Are there any children which are not civilian?

  • @Randal'Thor: You have a point there. I didn't think of Wesley.

Troi's son Ian died, at least his human form.

Data's daughter Lal died. I think she could be reasonably called a child, even if her form was adult.

Nurse Ogawa lost her unborn baby in All Good Things, but then history changed so it never happened.

And various alternate timelines where the Enterprise was destroyed and everyone died.

    For what it's worth, arguably only the last two items are examples of "dangerous situations" the ship was in. Sep 9, 2021 at 5:35
  • I see what you mean, but they are still civilian children deaths, so I thought they were worth including.
