Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

So Tom Paris walks into sickbay, and asks the Doctor, "Why the long face?"

A horse? Of course. (Someone had to do it.) Actually he'd probably become a centaur so he could continue to "nag" you all the way to your destination.

Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

So is that the VOY film, then? Return of A Man Called Horse?

Centaurs are creepy!

But now I need a photoshop of the Doctor, bare chested, as a centaur with his best supercilious expression.

Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

I would respect the Doctor's life choices if he became an opera singing centaur named Susan.

Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

I'm a doctor, not a camel!

You could place a mobile emitter on a projection of Superman to get out of the desert (or Captain Proton, assuming there was a hologram programmed to play that part, since Tom was usually the one portraying Proton) or the Rocketeer!

I know what you mean, there have been a few instances in Trek books- in Voyager's case, mostly during the 2-part Homecoming & Farther Shore- where I've been left with some big questions.
For instance (potential spoilers ahead)
one part about how Janeway was glad that, conveniently no questions had been asked by Starfleet about her involvement with a known holographic-rights terrorist, because they didn't ask just how it was she was able to slip past security. How convenient!

Nonetheless, I did enjoy the fact that the aforementioned 2-parter picked up where the finale had left off, even if Neelix had been disappointingly absent from the story.

Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

Kind of hard to squeeze Neelix into those books..though you could have had an epilogue with Neelix on his colony. The climax could be something that eventually we dealt with in Full Circle etc.. this assumes such long range planning for Treklit though. Not sure how much of that goes on.

That's rather Personal don't you think? He's already told us he made himself fully functional, I don't think this question should be asked by anyone not "Close enough" to him to find out for themselves.

Re: Could the Doctor be a horse?

Hey hey hey, I'm assuming (which makes an ass out of.. yeah yeah) that though the Doctor may be photonically challenged as far as turning his whole body into something swift that carries passengers he has made sure he has complete control of at least one part of himself and can program that part at will. That's why he's such a smug bastard because even though no one is "close enough" to know this he knows it. It's his secret superiority.

I bet there were encrypted files with special scenes during Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy that we never saw.

Brilliant!!

Imagine this conversation in a possible TV episode:

Dude: Isn't it something in your program which can make you turn yourself into a horse and carry me out of here?

The Doctor: Wrong hologram. Besides that, I'm a doctor, not a donkey.

Dude: But I'll die here if you can't help me!

The Doctor: Hmmm. Ok then!

The Doctor then turns himself into a centaur and set off through the wilderness with the dude on his back and in the background we hear this song:

"I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la..."
