Riker was joined to the Undertaking and couldn't separate his association until the USS Titan, here's each dispatch that he was advertised and why he said no.
Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) turned down a few advancements some time recently tolerating the captain's chair on board the USS Titan at the conclusion of the Star Journey: The Another Era motion pictures. Riker was much sought-after amid his time as Jean-Luc Picard's number one. Be that as it may, for a number of reasons, he would continuously turn down these potential advancements. Riker's connection to the Endeavor and his womanizing characterized the character amid TNG, and his encounters apparently persuaded him to develop up in Star Journey: Enemy by wedding Deanna Troi and taking command of the USS Titan.
In Adversary, he at last felt prepared to move on from the Undertaking, and live up to the potential that numerous, but not all, of his senior Starfleet officers saw in him. For illustration, within the season 6 two-parter, "Chain of Command", Riker clashed with Captain Jellico, who had supplanted Picard amid a clandestine mission behind adversary lines. In spite of Picard's deference for Will, Jellico accepted that Riker wasn't reasonable for such a vaunted command position. This clearly isn't a feeling shared by the more extensive Starfleet organization, who advertised Will Riker advancement to captain a few times, and which he turned down for a assortment of reasons.
The USS Drake
Earlier to tolerating the post on the Enterprise-D, Will Riker was advertised command of the USS Drake, a light cruiser. The youthful commander was in request at this time, as he'd too pulled in the consideration of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Riker's time on the USS Hood was what offered to Picard, who had perused approximately how Trek's Will Riker had gambled court-martial to secure his captain by denying to permit him to transport into a unfriendly circumstance, putting the security of his team over his claim notoriety.
It was whereas on the USS Hood that Riker gotten the offer of commanding the Drake and the offer of being to begin with officer on board the Alliance lead. Riker chosen that the Endeavor was a much way better posting, and declined the posting on the Drake. On the off chance that Riker had taken the posting on the Drake, it's likely that he wouldn't have ended up the incredible Starfleet officer he would afterward gotten to be. Riker's individual understudy at the Starfleet Institute, Paul Rice took the post instep, and was murdered by a conscious weapon that had wiped out the tenants of the planet Minos in TNG season 1, scene 20, "The Weapons store of Flexibility".
The USS Aries
When its captain resigned, the profound space investigation vessel, the USS Aries was in require of a modern one, and Starfleet Command chosen Will Riker was the perfect candidate. He was chosen since of his abilities as a negotiator and pioneer, but Riker wasn't persuaded. Given how energizing life was on board the Endeavor and the USS Titan, it's simple to see why Will wasn't persuaded by the prospect of captaining a profound space investigation vessel.
Riker inevitably chosen to decay the offer, choosing that the Venture was the leading put for him. His choice to turn down a command position astounded his father Kyle, who was relegated to the Aries as a civilian strategic advisor. This choice moreover astounded Riker's transporter clone Thomas, when he was protected from the planet Nervala IV, and educated of Will's numerous experiences within the past eight a long time.
The USS Melbourne
Earlier to Jean-Luc Picard's digestion into the Borg Collective and the Fight of Wolf 359, Riker was advertised command of the USS Melbourne. He was clashed around clearing out the Venture, but his choice was made for him when the Melbourne was annihilated by the Borg at Wolf 359. Amid Picard's difficulty with the Borg, Riker got command of the Enterprise-D, but at the fetched of Jean-Luc Picard's singularity. Riker's endeavors amid the fight with the Borg earned him the choice of commanding any dispatch within the armada, but Riker guaranteed his equal Commander Shelby that his career plans were up to him, serving on board the Venture for another 12 a long time.
The USS Voyager
It's inferred in Star Journey: Voyager season 2, scene 18, "Passing Wish" that Riker was moreover advertised command of the USS Voyager. In "Passing Wish", Q (John de Lancie) meets Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) for the exceptionally to begin with time, and watches that he was "wagering that Riker would get this command". As "Passing Wish" publicized two a long time after the TNG finale, groups of onlookers never ought to see an scene where Riker was advertised command of Voyager's mission to the Barren wilderness. As Will's transporter clone Thomas, and his colleague Ensign Ro Laren (Michelle Forbes) both sold out Starfleet for the Maquis, he would really be an perfect choice for the part, but clearly he turned it down.
Why Riker Finally Became Captain Of The Titan
Riker at last acknowledged it was time to move on from the Venture in Star Journey: Foe, and the ultimate TNG motion picture finished with he and his modern spouse Deanna Troi exchanging to their modern dispatch. In a film that was broadly criticized for not giving the TNG cast a fulfilling finishing, Troi and Riker's story is the as it were one that's really settled. Will Riker had continuously put his career ahead of his relationship with Deanna, but in tolerating command of the Titan and wedding Deanna, it's clear that he's at last been able to adjust his proficient and individual life.
It's this choice that at long last permits him to step out of the shadow of Jean-Luc Picard and ended up a legend in his possess right, being worshiped by Brad Boimler in Star Journey: Lower Decks. Riker's time on the Titan was exceptionally sensational, including space fights and incognito missions, reinforcing his capacities. Riker's abilities as a captain were so in request that, by the time of Star Journey: Picard season 1, he was a save captain, sent in times of require. One of those times is on the skyline, as Riker is called back to benefit by his ancient captain for the Star Journey: The Another Era crew's last experience in Picard season 3.
