I'm sure if the Klan could make black people white skinned, that they would embrace them with open arms... And if Jews convert, accepting Jesus Christ as their personal saviour, that all is forgiven.

That's called logic.
And that's why that's not on the agenda of the Klan.

Re: Why no Maquis flashbacks?



...But you should be more than aware that that was the agenda of the Australian Government in the 1920s. Taking mixed race children from their Aboriginal parents, adopting these children to white families who would guarantee that their new children would only marry white suitors when they came of age, so that three or four generations down the line, no one would ever remember that black people and white people were sexually intercompatiable.

How many dozen Cardassian spinal column necklaces do you think Chell has made?
He doesn't really seem the 'fight for freedom' type, does he? How do we think he ended up in the Maquis anyway? I reckon it was a prank his drinking buddies played on him after one night of wild partying. He woke up the next day with a splitting hangover and learning that he's been signed up to Chuckles' motley crew of badass terrorists.

Have you seen Dexter?

Chell could be just like Dexter, trying to be Normal but overcompensating for his inner sociopath, and coming off as a bit of a dick.

Re: Why no Maquis flashbacks?

All of the second episode should have been a flashback.

Think about it.

They wanted everyone in a Starfleet uniform at the end of "Caretaker". Fine. Janeway says that she and Chuckles talked it over, and agreed to that. A fitting ending to the pilot, with the course set for the series' future.

Still, while said conversation wouldn't have fit in that ep, doesn't mean it wouldn't be interesting to see. Negotations and all. Tensions and stuff.

So, the whole second ep could have taken place between the destruction of the array and that speech.

Why no flashbacks?

umm..because Lost hadn't aired yet, and made Flahsbacks a cool storytelling technique?

because Berman & Company weren't veyr creative?

Re: Why no Maquis flashbacks?

Highlander had great flash backs but why would Berman watch Canadian television?

The B's didn't have to be creative.

They had a perfect model.

Creativity would have pissed off their audience.

If they just kept making TNG they would have been fine.

They did flashbacks during DS9 and TNG and Braga was all for doing Season 4 as Year of Hell. I'm guessing that UPN's "no/minimal continuity, planet/alien of the week" mandate probably made the writers less inclined to explore the Maquis.

If you can't see the festering puss under the surface, then there is no festering puss under the surface.
