The Borg Kids
The Borg kids (Icheb, Mezoti and the twins) - did you like them or would you have rather gone without? Was it good idea to bring them to the series or was it useless?

Discuss. :borg:

We already had a recycled Borg. Did not need more of them.

Re: The Borg Kids
Agreed. Though without Icheb, Seven would've later died without the cortical node implant. ;)

Re: The Borg Kids
I thought the Icheb actor was solid. The little girl was cute but there wasn't much of her. The twins were colorless.

They were ok. They could have been a lot worse. *cough*cough*Wesley Crusher*cough*

Re: The Borg Kids
Very blank - little was done with them beyond what they did with Icheb. I would have liked to have a subplot in an episode that had Naomi and the Borg Brat Pack interacting, trying to show them how to have a childhood - something that could resonate with Seven, since she missed out on one as well.

Re: The Borg Kids
I would have loved it if they were all as "smart" as Seven since her general knowledge and skill set was a complete cheat.. I'm surprised that Seven wasn't downloading technical prowess into crewmen, so that she was a little less concerned about being surrounded y dipshits that didn't know how to take their clothes off when ordered to.

But that's a little too Super Scouts right?

Re: The Borg Kids
I didn't mind Icheb and Mezoti, but the twins Rebi and Azan were absolutely pointless. I don't think they said 10 words between them and had no character whatsoever. I can't tell if the kids were decent actors or not since they were given squat to do. They should have retooled "Imperfection" by having one twin save the other by sacrificing his cortical node. Would have had the audience care for them at least a little.

Re: The Borg Kids
O, or Icheb kills one of them to save the women he loved (a feeling addressed in no other episode, but clearly evident in this episode.), and gets away with it... Of course later on it seems like the other twin might know too much?

Re: The Borg Kids
I could have done without them.

Re: The Borg Kids
I liked Icheb, but the rest really served no purpose.

Meh not bothered either way.

Re: The Borg Kids
I don't remember them doing much really, but I liked them .... Mezoti was cute.

It doesn't do any harm to have them around in the background surely? ......... a bit like Picards Lion fish.

Re: The Borg Kids
They were stupid as hell, Icheb in particular was a total FAIL in my opinion. I don't know what the VGR writers were thinking sometimes.

Re: The Borg Kids
I remember being astounded that the kids were thrown away so quickly. later i realized that this is exactly the same mentality which got Kes turfed overboard... Although, if TPTB wanted to get rid of Harry at first because he was less "better" than Kes, and probably just as hard or harder to write for because he's indifferential from a few chords of lumber, then what's up with all the Kim stories flying about willy nilly seasons 4 through 7?

face it, any written Voyager story could have been focussed on a different character with the most minor alterations, that the only real matter being weighed is perceived celebrity... That's right, every Seven story could have been a Neelix story and every Chakotay story could have been a Kim story. play it out in your head for a delightful giggle. :)

There was a website a couple years back that generated Voyager plots.
