Don't be offensive.

Tom is short, not 8 years old.

Plenty of people under 5 feet tall have a lot to offer the world.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

Naomi was just a normal kid. She didn't annoy me at all.

Plus she had a hot mom.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

Yeah, she was pretty annoying. If she'd been five years older she would have been the female version of Wesley Crusher. Most of her contributions to episodes were annoying Seven, playing with Neelix(double dose of annoying) and generally distracting from the plot.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

I think she's incredibly irritating, and roll my eyes every time I see her. I generally can't stand children, but something about Naomi Wildman really annoys me. And am I the only one that thinks it's strange how Seven always has to say her whole name, but never does with anyone else?

(Oh, and to everyone that cannot stand Neelix, I don't get you. I love Neelix, he's one of my favorite characters)

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

She's not old enough to lose all of Sevens respect.

Children get held to much lower standards.

Naomi was fine I thought.

The Borg Kids were the worst thing Trek has ever produced, Westley Crusher was annoying but Wil Wheaton a G so i can give him a pass.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

I was manager of a well know named toy store for 8 years.
I developed a high tolerance and great appreciation of children.
It's the adults that have no tolerance or understanding.
With that said; no, I don't find Naomi annoying at all.
I wish all parents raised their children to be as well behaved as she was.
..and she as a kid was smarter and better mannered than Tom Paris ever was.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

This is what I like about Naomi:

She's smart but she's no girl genius. She never saves the ship, nor is she a catalyst for Our Heroes to have tedious epiphanies. She's just an intelligent child, into her academics and wanting the respect of the Captain and 7. She has no peers as she is the only child until the Borg kids show up so her interactions with crew are not some weird child-prodigy hanging out with adults deal. They are they only people she has to talk to.

She's not particularly emotional, you can see she would have been the geeky girl back on Earth that looked down on the cheerleaders. But there are no cheerleaders here on Voyager, she's got no one to feel superior to. At no point does she come across as snotty or know it all. Her life is not idyllic however.. though she is cared for and encouraged by any in the crew she interacts with she still has reason to fear those that would do Voyager harm. She has had to grow up quickly to realistically understand Voyager's vulnerability in the Delta Quadrant.

There's not a single moment she annoys me. She's utterly normal given her unusual life.

Re: Anyone else find Naomi Wildman annoying?

No. But then I even like the kids in that 'stranded Tuvok' story.

And I love the way she so absolutely idolises/wants to emulate Seven.

They were senile old people.

Not that there's really much any difference.

And when Naomi grows up, she'll be the chick from the Orbit Gum commercials.

I'll agree on the point of the Borg kids. That was just redundant to no end. There was nothing they contributed that Seven or Naomi hadn't already done.

Heck, Icheb was pretty much the Borg Wesley Crusher, except was even more dull somehow.

That's because under all that weaslly, Wheaton is awesome.

Wil was 10 years old when he stared down Jack Bauer and won.
