Free Tom Riker

In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Defiant," we learn that Thomas Riker - the transporter clone of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D's Will Riker (don't ask) - joins the Maquis and winds up getting taken prisoner by the Cardassians. Major Kira Nerys promises that they'll come back for him, but the show ended before the rescue was ever mounted. So as far as we viewers know, poor Tom is still stuck in jail.

I suppose optimistic fans could assume that Tom was liberated during the collapse of Cardassian civilization caused by the Dominion War, but it's just as likely that he was one of the hundreds of millions of victims of those tragic events.

In the meantime, well, here's some more Photoshop tomfoolery. If you look closely, you can see that my use of the selection tools leaves something to be desired - they're a source of constant frustration. I always wind up with ragged edges, even after using the feather tools. Time for another course, I think.
