Re: Travelling Community

Let's say more years go by and they do decide, "we need a generational ship".

Rather than the Captain ordering them to commence breeding I think she would do the math and decide they needed X amount of children. She would then implore/woo all females of child bearing age (which in Trek times is apparently puberty to 55+) to consider volunteering. They would have the option of breeding the traditional way or via insemination, this is assuming they hadn't figured out parthenogenesis yet though that might not be optimal in this situation. Some might be willing to have quite a few ala Phlox's wife and they would be on much lighter duties, in fact child raising, teaching and ultimately training in ship running would become important positions.

The Captain of course would not be bearing any young.

Because she would eat them like guppies.

Re: Travelling Community

If they make her have babies with Chak in the books I will DIE.

Though I wouldn't be adverse to breeding her with NuKirk.. but you know, that's an extraordinary opportunity. Everyone would like to breed with Kirk, Nu or otherwise.

I remember Neellix nagging until 8 month pregnant Sam Wildman fixed his replicator.

It was so hilarious watching her not swot him.

I'd love to see a series that starts with the first generation born on a Generational ship as adults, the original crew still there but older etc.. trying to hold together the purpose of the mission. Let's say in 12 years VOY did decide to start breeding for replacement, You're going to have to indoctrinate the next generation into returning to earth being their heart's desire when they have minimal connection to it. Add a few more crew from the DQ and at some point you may have a rebellion wanting to settle somewhere.
I think that would be an awesome premise! The old folks trying to teach everyone how awesome Earth and the AQ is so they keep on heading home, meanwhile the young ones just want to find a place to settle down so they don't have to keep patching up the falling apart ship.
