I wish we'd seen more of Ensign Sariel Rager.

There's a scene in Voyager, fairly late in it's run. Janeway is making her way down a corridor in a combat situation, she is unarmed and comes upon a crew member with (iirc) a phaser rifle, she holds out her hand and says "crewman," and he hands her the weapon.

Crewman????

This is like season six, there are only about a hundred and fifty people aboard the ship and Janeway calls this guy "crewman?"

Hah! Well, Voyager had so many things wrong with it by season six I'm honestly not surprised by that at all. It's like the writers didn't even care anymore at that point.

You didn't think Janeway actually CARED enough about her people to learn their names did you?

Re: Should they have kept Dr. Selar?

No it's worse. If they named the character, then they would have had to pay the actor a couple extra dollars.

My mind is fluttering with romantic pairings for Selar.

How about if they had had an episode where it shows Selar and Data meeting once every seven years for the next 2 centuries?

Selar gives Geordi a Physical.

"Did I really have to take my pants off while you did all that?"

"No, you didn't."

...

"Commander Riker, I have spent the last two weeks studying the disgusting outbreak of hair on your face, I think I have found a cure that will finally get rid of it."

"No, it is by choice. I like my beard. You don't?"

"Is this human humour? I find humour more grating than that uncontrollable thatch clinging to your chiselled good looks."

...

"Dr Selar, please, I'm far too old to pursue a relationship with such a vibrant young woman as yourself."

"I am 128 terran years old Captain Picard."

...

"D,d,d,d,d,d,d,doctotor Selar, it's valentines dd,d,d, ay and I. I . I, was wonderrrring if yu, yu , yu would like to havve d, d,d d, d,, d, inner with me, me?

"No."

...

"You remind me of my wife."

"You remind me of my Sehlat."

With K'Ehleyr?

Might have taken some doing, special effects, look-a-likes for back shots, creative camera angles.

But so worth the effort.

Especially not after Seven came onboard, she pretty much ignored everyone else after that.
