I wonder why they changed Troi's accent from like a mid eastern accent to a brittish one.  Did it start in the movies or in the later seasons of the TV show?


Troi has always had an British accent... at least I have always remembered one.


From imdb:

"Marina Sirtis, a Londoner, initially delivered her lines in what was supposed to be an alien-sounding accent because Troi was half human/half Betazoid. However, when Majel Barrett appeared as her mother, Lwxanna, she spoke in her American accent. Sirtis then developed Troi's accent into an Eastern-European sound, as it was decided that was where Troi's human father came from."

Then I noticed in the movies her accent was different.


I honestly never knew that or could tell the difference.
Ripley: Ash. Any suggestions from you or Mother?
Ash: No, we're still collating.
Ripley: [Laughing in disbelief] You're what? You're still collating? I find that hard to believe.


You should look at my full list before judging my musical taste...i'm quite eclectic.
