I think the real problem was that it was all so Sandra Dee.
They're both mass murdering terrorists with absolutely nothing fun to do. Surely in an effort to fight tedium they'd go that extra inch to defy convention? it was their THIRD DATE! every one knows that the third date is the sex date and they did NOTHING!!! If they're not taking their relationship seriously, then why should we? Where's the fricking passion? the fire? Why is their "love" worth killing for and bending the universe in half for?
"We will begin Girl talk
"Go away Seven, I have manifolds to reparticularize."
"Chakotay is rocking my world
. I have dispensed with virginity. I believe we are supposed to commit to the social gesture "the High Five" to applaud this victory over my sexuality."
(Seven raises her hand. B'Elanna leaves her hanging.)
"I am a woman now. You are supposed to bond with me."
"It's just Chakotay. Over the last seven years he's worked his way through the entire female compliment except the captain, and that's probably because she can smell every one else on him."
"O. So what we did in the Ventu Forest was not romantic climax built from some years of unspoken affection, admiration and love?"
"Were you cold?"
"The man is a whore."
"No, No don't get so distraught, maybe he likes you or maybe he thought you'd make a good blanket, but there's nothing wrong with whores. I married one after all."
