Re: Why did Chakotay Choose to be with seven instead of janeway?

It doesn't count as selfcontrol yet.

Cheating on Mark, even though he thought she was dead and this is exactly when he would have been lining up his ducks to settle into some wedded bliss bullpooh with some funeral crashing skank.

Even if he pulled a groupie at her funeral, this was a bit quick.

You don't think Mark had a few fiancées in Star Ships across the Alpha Quadrant coming into port to service his duplicitous and underhanded advances?

If he were this type of guy, then why bother letting Janeway know he's engaged at all? I mean, even though Voyager was able to have a bit of contact with the AQ, the expectation still remains that it will take quite a while to get back. He could still have his multiple lovers while continuing to play the dutiful, waiting fiance to Janeway and betting on the fact that one or both of them could be dead by the time Voyager arrives.

The spotlight.

The only reason Tiger Woods could bang around is because few if anyone knew he was married. Now however that he actually is single, becoming single, there's too much of a stigma attached to tapping that, that tapping that is suddenly too daunting.

The very huge public funeral after the considered loss of Voyager would have painted Mark as the grieving widower speechigfying the purity of his love for the woman, on a podium in front of a billion holocameras which would have ceased all of his more sane relationships leaving only batshitters and the Amish to retied into the nook of.

Do you think that Amish in the Star trek universe noticed the third world war, and do they accept aliens into their communities, or did they colonize some agrarian farm world as soon as the technology was available?

Because a relationship between two middle-aged adults wouldn't do much for the ratings, but any scene with Seven -- especially a romantic one -- would.
After re-watching it, knowing what happened during ENT, this is the logical explanation for all the Seven-centric stuff they put in VOY.

To be fair, there is also a large number of fans who are happy J/C did not happen.
I'm in that camp, though I'd prefer not having any C/7 stuff pushed down my throat either. It was quite obvious that they regarded each other as more than friends and I can't be alone in noticing that she drifted away from leaning at Tuvok for support to Chakotay and the warmth that grew between them. Janeway makes it clear though several times during the series that she can't indulge in a relationship. Her obligations is to the crew and getting them home.

I liked it the way it was developed during the first seasons because it left a lot to imagination. It wasn't intrusive either. They were grown ups with a lot of responsibility and had their priorities straight. Good enough for me.

The Seven thing? Ugh. Not believable at all.
