Star Trek: The Next Generation Easter Egg - Tasha Waves Goodbye

Near the end of an episode entitled "Symbiosis" in season one, Tasha Yar (played by Denise Crosby) can be seen waving to the camera far in the background as Picard and Crusher exit the cargo bay. This was Crosby's last scene as a regular on The Next Generation, hence the goodbye wave. The episode in which Tasha was killed, entitled "Skin of Evil," was filmed before "Symbiosis" even though it was obviously aired afterwards.

Yup this is true. It's near the end of the episode as Picard and I think it's either Dr Crusher or Deanna walk out of the cargo bay. If you watch Tasha in the background you can see her jump into view as the door closes waving her hands in the air!!!

No, it is a wave. I have the official Star Trek Encyclopedia and there are a lot of eggs in it. I quote from the Encyclopedia, "Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar's actress) can be seen breaking out of character and waving farewell at the end of "Symbiosis" just before the cargo bay door closes." So there it is the official proof from the official source. It was a wave.

This is true, but not as worded. The egg isn't that Tasha is there, it's that she broke character. Symbiosis was first aired on April 18, 1988; Skin of Evil was first aired on April 25, 1988. In other words, she died in the next episode, so she was waving goodbye - a spoiler for things to come, if you will.

And unless I've got the definition _way_ wrong, that constitutes waving. Given the filming order of the two episodes in question here, I think it deserves the benefit of the doubt!
