OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
That *is* a rather creepy coincidence. I would hate to see Imrahil go via brain cancer. But otherwise the more I think about it the more parallels I see: high-spirited privileged youth of uncertain talent who dallied a bit before buckling down and coming into his own. Both lost wives while their children were still quite young (TK's first wife is a chronic alcoholic and although she's still alive was a shadowy, impotent parent from the sound of it), both tend(ed) to overindulge in alcohol as an escape, both adamantly loyal to those who loyally work for them.
Of course Imrahil would never have abandoned a young woman, whether or not he could save her, as TK did in Chappaquiddick. Some of TK's behavior is beyond what Imrahil at his most drunk and self-destructive would have committed, I think. But yeah, the more I think about it ... funny, huh!
