Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

Susan Gibney... she played Leah Brahms, didn't she? It was bad enough seeing her in that other role in the Starfleet conspiracy episode. I wouldn't have liked her as yet another character.

We've had numerous Trek actors play different roles. She actually doesn't hold the record for that. In fact, she was cast as Captain Benteen after Mulgrew got Janeway.

I don't see how it would've made that big a difference.
Voyager's problems lied in writing, not the gender of the Captain.

We've had numerous Trek actors play different roles. She actually doesn't hold the record for that.
The number of times in the latter shows I caught myself thinking:
"Hey, that Hirogen is Martok!" "Hey, that 22nd century Klingon lawyer is also Martok!"
"Look, cardassian Tebok!" "Oh, here's blue Weyoun!"

But I usually considered it a good thing. Hertzler, Combs, Alaimo and most of the recurring actors were very good.

Janeway was as Janeway was. The greatest two words spoken in the entire seven year run of Voyager:

"I know."
"I agree."

I LOVE that scene.

But he didn't play a recurring Vulcan on VOYAGER. I never saw him on Enterprise, at least not that I remember. He only ever had one episode on Voyager, and now that I'm reminded of what he looks like, I really can't see him as a male version of Captain Janeway.
He was fantastic on Enterprise, had a great presence. I can see him as a Trek captain very easily. Now that he's older, even more so.
And the lizard babies were not sweet. They were repulsive. But then I find most reptiles repulsive, and this episode was nausea-inducing anyway.
Well I love lizards, I have had a lot of blue tongues and stumpy tails as pets (the skink family, if you want to look it up). But still.. these were not lizards but appeared to be amphibians.

They were no more repulisve than a salamander. They were the (evolved) DNA of two humans and who knows what they would become? What we saw could have been the larval stage.

Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

I thought Gibney looked way hotter as a fatty in TNG.

I didn't even realize that she was a fatty until DS9 when Sue walked in front of camera and over half her water weight had been misplaced.

That's the problem with women.

Then think that thin equals young.

Thin really just means less canvas to hide their wrinkles.

My flatmate is on a health kick.

She thinks she's fat.

She's not fat.

She's just old.

Not old old.

Just finished growing old, still in her 20s, but her culture seems to think that 16 is ideal and if you keep growing after 16 you're a freak that needs to be locked in a cave.

To me, because of a thousand books by Peter David, and Hidden Frontier, Shelby is so far beyond Elizabeth Dennehey it's not funny.

A woman who is truly her fathers daughter.

Liz is Shelby as a baby, who as a character has GROWN.

No.

Emotionally grown.

I haven't made Shelby from the 2370s a fatty in my minds eye.

I wouldn't do that.

okay.

I might not do that.

But usually after you put a ring on that finger, one does need to replace said ring with a larger ring by the first anniversary. Her beloved will claim that he needs a larger stone to more accurately express his love, but it's really the certainty of gangreen if some one doesn't cut that band off and resize it.

Don't get me started about nine fingered women.

But if your wife starts getting smaller.

She is making travel arrangements.

Expect divorce papers.

Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

Actually an old girlfriend hit me in the arm in the check out queue while shopping some years ago...

"Stop making me eat all this shit! I can't leave you until I lose 5 pounds! And I can't! You bastard!"

Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

If she can't lose five pounds she'll be pumping an extra 500 calories of butter into everything she cooks for you and making you gain it. It will balance out. If you're fatter she will feel thinner. OR, fast forward 10 years and you might actually die of a heart attack thanks to these ministrations leaving her svelte and sympathetic.

Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

She couldn't lose 5 pounds because she drank like a fish.

And because she couldn't be confused for a kite, a dozen or so a night had barely any effect on her.

We were young.

You're supposed to drink "like that" when you're young.

Though recycling day, taking all the empty bottles to the curb was too sobering.

I'm the opposite.

I can't drink.

I get to four and I'm an idiot.

By 6 I'm passed out.

This is how/why she slept with most of my friends.

Well that's all a bit tragic. Recycling day should make you feel triumphant, "look at all this CRAP I am recycling, I am sooo noble."

Re: Would you have oreferred Captain Gary Janeway???

Recycling day is once a week here.

they actually took away our big wheely bins and replaced they with something half the size and said that we were fucked and would drown in our own filth is we didn't recycle.

Recycling just goes in cardboard boxes.

Dozens and dozens of boxes full of little green bottles.

But actual rubbish has to be in a tiny approved bin or it will be ignored.
