Re: Changelings

Although not everyone reads the books and will consider that vaild information (they aren't canon, afterall), it's touched upon that basicly, the Founders can't die of old age, but are ofcourse not immortal. The sickness in the Great Link almost killed them, and we've seen atleast three Founders die onscreen (The Adversary, Apocolypse Rising and By Inferno's Light).

Interestingly enough, right now I'm reading the story by David R George III where some backstory is explained about the Founders, and how they used to be solids (as stated in one of the episodes of DS9, so that IS canon) and how the Progenitor, a massive changeling, made them all changelings. They were then considered newly formed, not infants, and couldn't procreate anymore. Even at the time of Odo's return, there were still newly formed Changelings in the Link, who hadn't seperated yet from the Link.

They should have formed a gang and made their own link and returned home to have their vengeance.
That wouldn't work.

Odo was conditioned/engineered to Orgasm the first time he even saw the nebula he came from.

Although Laars was a complete bellend.

Re: Changelings

But if they formed their own link some of their programmed desire for their people might be satisfied so that when they saw their origin world they no longer uncontrollably wanted to blend with it but instead just fancied it somewhat. And perhaps their resentment at being abandoned and their distrust of their people would not be over ridden. They were getting what they most needed from their mini link so they had clearer heads.

This might be why they didn't send them out by twos or threes, not just because they would learn more if they knew nothing of who they were. But because it would interfere with their programming.

Re: Changelings

Odo and Laars linked.

They linked a lot.

Odo thought he was a link-addict.

Why is this on the VOY board? I don't know. Standards are slipping around here.

Re: Changelings

I get the impression that shapeshifters do not age, but despite 'the ocean becomes the drop the drop becomes the ocean' they are unique individuals. They all have their own 'morphogenic matrix'.

As to why conversation of mass does not apply to them, I have no idea. I don't know, maybe when they get really small they also get really dense?

Re: Changelings

last time I watched season three they all had uncontrollable side burns.

They looked like Elvis.

The illusion that they were i n the 23rd century fizzled away for me.

But then have you every compared Elizabeth Montgomery's wardrobe formt he beginning of Bewitched to the end of Bewitched?

She starts off as Jackie O and finishes as a Hippy.

Re: Changelings

Started watching a cartoon recently staring Curtis"booger" Armstrong called "Dan VS." about a very very angry, unwashed, comic book reading, 40 something, without a girlfriend, who each week goes on impossible quests against unlikely targets to satisfy his taste for vengeance, including werewolves, Ninjas and Canada.

Also staring Dave Foley and Paget Brewster.

Paget has a nose like a ski jump, but hells bells, that shnoz really ties her face together.

Re: Changelings

Are you allowed to be racist about imaginary races?

I suppose if it's the thought that really counts, then hate is hate.
