Could have been worse, Janeway might have made Harry Neelix's personal assistant and toe nail polisher.

Wouldn't that be a promotion from the captain's bitch post he held?

Naomi ousted him from that standing.

"Captains assistant"

It's a much more polite way of saying it, but bitch and assistant are each equally usually covering the same remit.

It only looks like a corset.

So totally Velcro.

Have you ever tried to do up buttons all up your back? Velcro would be just as hard, if not harder because you would need it nice and flat, not lumpy where you mistuck it.

Janeway will need assistance into her dress ups.

You know (in theory) how male strippers have tear away trousers?

Janeway's invisible seem would be hidden on her frontside of her period costume.

or are to suspect that there is a holochanging room staffed intimately with laddies in waiting and manservants... Vallets? like some antechamber off to the side of the holodeck?

If such a service was useful... most of the crew would have holoemitters in their quarters.

Yet still no bugger invited the doctor over to theirs for dinner.

The pleasure in playing a woman in period costume begins with the underthings.

Velcro has no place in the build up to an authentic historical experience.

Well the girl had much more fire and ambition than poor Harry. And Naomi couldn't take over every aspect of the role. Janeway for all her faults doesn't torture children.

Re: Was it ever stated officially why Harry was an Ensign for 7 years?

Now that I've served in the military, I have a theory on why Kim was never promoted - he just couldn't pass his twice yearly Physical Training test. He seems like the type who would fail by a sit-up or two. He probably had to do all sorts of extra PT, and would just psych himself out during the tests. I've toyed with the idea of writing a fanfic about it....but I haven't written a fanfic in like...12 years or so.

Oh, and as for Tuvok, remember that he was demoted in the first season, although the scene was cut. When he got promoted, it was only back to his original rank. I don't think anyone got promoted to a rank higher than what they started with...

But what about all the old fat people in the TOS movies, they couldn't do sit ups.

Ships gravity is .75 G.

Actually, I'd assume that ships gravity was the Captains prerogative rather than uniform fleet wide.

Remind me what happened to Janeway's kids she had with Paris?

Were they abandoned or eaten by fearless leader?

Noooooooooooooo... No?

I think the Voth would have picked them while they were covering Janeway's footsteps trying to figure out what humans were.

Pets, or labrats?

They'd all proven themselves by that point, being exempt from future medical check-ups was a reward.
