Re: Seven Of Nine/Jeri Ryan Appreciation Thread
I liked Seven as far back as when she first appeared on Voyager, right up to the end of the series. I was, however, ot sure about using her as a sex symbol (ie "the borg babe" description as used by TPTB at the time) and thought it was silly for her to make the male crewmen (Harry) lust after her. I have some weird memories of that period, too, but at least it calmed down somewhat.
Make him lust after her? Did the Borg adapt pheromones for assimilation? I thought it was a funny scene, it made her come across both alien to human behavior, as well as awesomely sexy. It's always seemed a shame that the show was so determined to humanise her.
