Description: Broccoli - The pejorative nickname of Lt. Reginald Barclay (Dwight Schultz) first heard on episode #69 “Hollow Pursuits” on the science fiction series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/SYN/1987-94.
It was first spoken by Ensign Crusher (Wil Wheaton) who then explained the play-on-words nickname. After hearing the nickname name, the ship’s Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) made a slip of the tongue and used “Broccoli” instead of Barclay. He was not amused by his mistake, since he made it in a public arena. See also - "Herbert!"
