Yeah he was always scrambling to ensure he was viewed as competent.

Well, he was the only drug dealing paedophile on board.

They can't take that away from him.

He just wanted to be needed. Maybe he over-compensates? I always liked that episode where he's so desperate to get the map for the unknown expanse he gets into the dodgy drug deal. Poor guy (Neelix, I mean).

He was scared of being tossed off the ship and having to live from salvage find to salvage find again. Voyager was an incredible 10 star luxury resort to him.

Re: The Void

Being needed by Kathryn was as close as Neelix could imagine to that beautiful woman loving him romantically.

Re: The Void

Pathetic. And then he's threatened by Kes outgrowing him and not needing him any more.

Re: The Void

The closest and snuggliest Kes and Neelix were ever together is when they were watching TV together in Futures End.

B'Elanna and Tom as well in Memorial.

Relationships need TV to work, and last.

Re: The Void

What about the holodeck? Or do you need to be a passive spectator to get that warm together feeling?

Re: The Void

Intimacy is about doing nothing together, which is why most married people are happiest when they're asleep.

Maybe if they weren't such militant vegetarians what happened on Equinox wouldn't have been such a big deal? Hell would it be more forgiveable if they were eating those space beasties rather boiling them up for fuel, and more importantly... What would be the best wine to serve with broiled space beastie?
The aliens were probably poisonous to humans. Since they had no qualms about rendering them for fuel, they probably checked to see if they were edible. There's a line about having gone without food for 2-3 weeks, so I'm assuming the aliens must have been toxic.

There's a really long fanfic I've been following where Seven's holodeck persona and Chakotay's persona from the WW2 scenario slept together (unknown to either Seven or Chakotay consciously) when the Hirogens invaded the ship. Awhile later, Seven discovered herself pregnant, and the result is an 84-chapter (and counting) fanfic where Seven and Chakotay are married, with a daughter. The latest chapter has them deciding to adopt and raise the Borg baby that everybody on the show forgot about. So now they are married, with children. And the Borg kids.

Dunno if the author will change that to let the Borg kids stay; I actually liked Mezotti and was disappointed when she was written out of the show.

Re: The Void

I don't remember if the author got around to giving her one. Mind you, this author has written quite a few different stories exploring various ways Seven and Chakotay could end up married. There's one where Seven was on a Borg cube that crashed on Chakotay's home planet. Seven was a teenager at the time, and it was Chakotay's father and the healers who figured out how to "de-Borgify" her. When the Cardassians destroyed the colony, both Chakotay and Seven joined the Maquis. It's an interesting twist to the story, and the action is all still pre-"Caretaker". Tom Paris has just joined the ship, and nobody knows Tuvok is a spy.

Re: The Void

Links Timewalker? I just got a kindle and I'm going to take a crack at reading fanfic on it. I've got JRulez's Counting in Time on it now and I'm going to make that my first one. I'm not sure I can go 84 chapters of C/7 though even though I've been a sorta apologist for that ship.

As to the aliens I'd be surprised if they were edible.

Re: The Void

I use a program called "free natural reader".

My PC reads me fanfiction (and books) in a Stephen Hawking voice.

(I am so lazy.)

None of this dropping my kindle in the bath shit... That sounds dirtier than it should, I just shut my eyes, put my feet up and let the experience roll over my day and smooth out all the wrinkles.
