Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance

Much as I'd love Kate to wear flats the heels add to how she carries herself and I think flats + the dress might be dangerously frumpy.

The exclusive naked rights would be implied by the Fair Haven program. He seems upstanding so he is upstanding. The wanton will be equally cliched (no doubt Father EMH will hear their confessions).

Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance

Until Kathy locked his program, a less ethical bubble could have been created around his program for one crewman to take advantage which no one, including Michael, after the fact would be none the wiser thereof.

Chakotay for instance would want to see what the big deal was.

Maybe that's how Seven died in the Endgame timeline. Janeway decided she wanted Chakotay.

Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance

Any way you cut it, she got rid of that wife so she go after him .

There was something about the wife that bothered her--To Janeway, they're just holograms, right? Why not just recreat the character in a totally different scenario, different planet, whatever?

Nope, she kept the character and the scenario and erased the wife-- she wanted something the man had, he was attached, she had to get rid of--or work around the wife.

Isn't that the standard method behind cheating?

It would have been interesting if the story had it that the characters couldn't be erased, and Janeway had to deal with here and if she went ahead with it.

Assuming she got caught. That would be embarrassing.

It is weird how 24th trek characters loved to have holodeck fantasies set in old times.

Janeway wanted a stud-- with fringe benefits.

She represented the female view of creating a hot sexual fantasy.

Like as if a male were to create a beautiful, full figured woman who was nice and open minded and accepting--who could kick arse, and was a sword master. The whole super fantasy thing.

It was all gonna lead to the sex. The end product. the big bang.

She wasn't putting in all that effort to trade recipes in the end.

Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance

Kim got out witted by a holographic Windsurfing instructor.

He had a good cry, and moped to all his friends about how he couldn't seal the deal.

Did he even consider rewriting her personality?

Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance

No, because he is a wuss.

OR maybe he went back to that program when no one else was in it so he could rewrite her without his friends seeing.

Well the thing is the holoprogram was left open to tweaking by the players. It's possible Tom Paris would be put out by his village being altered by someone else but he didn't lock it down (Janeway just walks in and adjusts it, she doesn't have to over ride anything). So right away it's open to people's tweaks. As I already said if her fantasy was about cheating she would have left the wife in there snuck around behind her back.

But I think you are just enjoying casting Janeway as a cheater so you don't care about the facts.
