Re: Neelix Had Some Great Episodes Throughout the Series

Neelix or Chell?

From the internet about Bolians.

Thanks in part due to cartilaginous lining on their tongues; Bolians are known to appreciate strongly acidic foods. Aged meat is a common ingredient in their cuisine.
Admiral Janeway came back in time to make sure that that man did not to take root in the Kitchen.

All that bullshit abotu Seven and the indian falling in love.

Horse hockey!

It was Chell's cooking!

Ethan Phillips is a very talented actor,the character Neelix was very original but was somewhat annoying :P and also he was a warm heart for the crew,i remember many episodes when Seven is having issues or B'elanna or Tuvok...he is always there to comfort them,so he did a decent job as morale officer but for hes cooking i think that is another story.
Did he comfort the crew after he got Hogan killed with his incompetence? Seriously he should have been booted off the ship after that stunt.

For that one episode he was in, Chell sure was referenced a lot the rest of the series. Too bad we didn't see more of him. He seemed an interesting character.

Re: Neelix Had Some Great Episodes Throughout the Series

I sort of think when they were past Neelix's known areas of space, he should have occasionally scouted nearby systems the ship would pass. If he hadn't been around every week, time spent on his scenes could have been used for the other characters. And Neelix's off-ship adventures might lead to trouble for Voyager.

Re: Neelix Had Some Great Episodes Throughout the Series

I think Neelix worked best when he wasn't the focus.

I didn't mind Flotter. I mean, if you compare it to every appearance of children in TNG that wasn't Disaster, it's far better handled. Though they should have made Naomi a little socially maladjusted.

If a cannibal used a knife and fork would you say that's "far better handled" too?

Tonight, just completely random, I decided to watch Season 7's Homestead, the episode where Neelix leaves. As I was watching this episode, which gave Neelix a better send off than the rest of the crew, I was thinking for all the negative pub Neelix as a character got, some of his episodes were the best. It seemed like each season you had a serious Neelix show, some of which included Tuvok like:

Season 1: Jetrel
Season 2: Tuvix
Season 3: Fair Trade
Season 4: Mortal Coil
Season 5: Once Upon a Time (I don't like Flotter, but Neelix as godfather giving Naomi some hope was the best part of the episode)
Season 6: Riddles
Season 7: Homestead

The one thing these episodes (Except maybe Tuvix had in common was it really allowed Phillips to shine in the role. It's a shame really he was used so much as comic relief because the serious Neelix shows were some of the best episodes of his character arc. I'm not sure of the characters, except for Janeway, Doc, and Seven, there was this much consistency each season. Neelix may not be my favorite character and he could get annoying at times, but man when he got his season's serious episode, Ethan Phillips did a bang up job making Neelix shine.
I agree.
I didn't mind Neelix' jealousy about Kes.
He was homeless and living in garbage when Voyager found him. In all the universe, Kes is all he had.
She was only one in years to ever return his love.
Too see him as more than just a bum.
What's that song: "You are everything and everything is you."

Too quote Obi-Wan: "Who's more foolish. The fool or the fool that follows?"
Neelix isn't an officer and has no rank, he's a civilian.
Even as a Maquis, Hogan held rank. He had the right too decline what Neelix asked. Hogan got himself eaten for doing what he knew might not be right.

Re: Neelix Had Some Great Episodes Throughout the Series

Repression comes to mind.

Wikipedia says that they used him, and by that I hope they mean the same actor, in the video game Voyager Elite Force.

Good Lord!

Under all that blue, it's the Doc from My Secret Identity!

Re: Neelix Had Some Great Episodes Throughout the Series

I thought I saw him in Haunting Of Deck Twelve.

Although Neelix is probably my least favorite main he did take a good storytelling role. He was there to take some of the weight off over serious scenes.

Also, with Flotter. At least that seemed like a real children's holodeck program. Did you see Cost Of Living? I would have rather they spend the screen time in other ways, but if they had to do Naomi episodes, they could have done far worse. TNG is proof.

Didn't Chell also appear in Haunting Of Deck 12?

Really? I always thought the opposite, whenever the episode was about Neelix I tended to like him but when he was only in a few scenes he was much more annoying.

Repression! That's the one I was thinking of! I honestly don't remember him in Q2 at all, but VOY ain't my speciality so I don't feel too bad.
