That's cheating.

They might as well make Seska a Romulan.

I love all character interactions, and given the plot progression of entire voyager series, I can't imagine the scripts being much better. I think they nailed all of it perfect.
Mmmmm, wow. No show on TV is perfect, certainly not Voyager....enjoyable yes but there were tons of problems with this show. I get the impression you're easily pleased and imperssed.

You're an ensign.

I don't mean to be brash, but there's a %99 chance that you're a phishing meme or a spambot.

Kes in DS9? Why not?

Instead of coming up with that silly story in "The Gift", they could have found a way to transport her to DS9 instead.
LOL, I think that would have been waaayyy too contrived, like "small universe" syndrome times 10,000. Nonetheless I have thought about how exactly they'd fit her in. Maybe they could make it so the prophets were actually ascended Ocampa and Kes comes to join them in the wormhole
I think Jennifer would've been great cast as a Vorta in DS9
That's a really good idea. She could be the smaller, somewhat defective innocent Vorta. She could fall in love with Weyoun because some stray hormones slipped into her cloning vat. In order to save her life Bashir has to remove all traces of hormones and love and the poor dear has a five minute ethical dilemma about it.

Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

Oh and every time she shows up to destroy the Federation, Bashir can 'safely' turn her "emotions" back on for just long enough before the toxicity builds up to dangerous levels, like a double gent they can control with the flip of a switch... Which makes me wonder why when she is an evil Vorta she keeps putting herself in a situation where "they" make her betray the Founders that they might wonder if she's really a triple agent or just an addict?

Bashir will of course fall for her because he's like that.

Because there's nothing unethical, immoral or illegal about A Doctor diddling his patients.

Poor Bashir, he's DS9's The Doctor so everyone is his patient. Never mind he can add that to his ethical dilemma scene.

Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

Just imagine the temptations of having Vorta Kes's hormones under his control.

We could have this whole episode minus Bashir's angst if MU Bashir showed up and locked our Bashir in a closet for the duration.

Honestly, I think that Kes was and is best as she was in the first three seasons of Voyager.

Just add a prolonged lifespan.

Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

She's mayfly.

Extending her life span alters who and what she is.

the character will suffer.

Just like how they took the Doctor out of sickbay with his mobile emitter.

Of Maquis Starfleet tensions evaporated over night.

Or they didn't run out of torpedoes half way through season one.

Seriously, there are author out there that think that Superman should get over that kryptonite thing.

That being said.

Clone her.

Transfer her conciousness like they did with Denora Pel.

Simple.

Although that's not really immortality, it's just being a bastard to your child.

The only set back is Jen Lien can't wear the latex and make up it takes to be a Vorta. She has allergies to the latex and glue. Wasn't that why they grew her hair longer, to cover that up?

Still don't get the irony of why she looks like Tinkerbell, huh?
