Riker's Command Offers. William T. Riker serves as first officer on the Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E for a total of 15 years during seven seasons of The Next Generation and four movies. In that time, he is offered command of a Starfleet ship three times and declines each time before finally accepting command of the USS Titan. Why does Riker keep turning down command offers and what do the times we do see him in command say about what he would be like in command of his own ship? In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Amy Nelson and Justin Oser are joined by Brian Meloche, Associate Producer of The Edge, to talk about Riker's command offers. The discussion includes talking about why he declines offers to command three different Starfleet ships, why he accepts command of the USS Titan, and the different times that we see Riker in command of the Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E.
