Re: Brannon Braga on the Borg in Voyager + his thoughts on the show

If you look through the instruction manual you got on your wedding night, often you need at least three sets of hands or some one is going to break a hip.

Any man fluent in marriage is not going to write a new chit to initiate a devils threesome because, that's just going to lead to more of the same thing. Ideally we will quickly say "yes" to another bloke participating if she gets down on her knees and begs, but that's only so that she will be beholden on the ledger balances and have to agree to proper threesome shortly there after... Unless the man in this story is secretly gay of course.

Apologies for redirecting the thread from group sex (one of my favorite topics), but I really love your avatar Brit. Exquisite work.
Thank you so much, it is made from a scan of a soft pastel portrait I drew last fall. Here a link to a bigger copy.

Ok, now I am upset, apparently my manual is missing a chapter. I'll have to look into that, I might need it to fulfill my ambition to write smutty science fiction romances.

And that is what a lot of people assumed, but "what if" Chakotay's withdrawal was due to guilt. What if he was the one that "killed" her. We've seen him lose his father, we've even seen him lose Kathryn in "Before and After," we've seen him get over a lot. Maybe this was something else.
I always figured he somehow caused her death.

Then again in the books he turns into a babbling shell of a man for a few years (?) following Janeway's death that he didn't cause.
And that is just about the worse plot line in "Full Circle," although I think Seven of Nine going crazy is just about as bad in the book.

I don't often agree with Teya, but I do here. I can totally see how the loss of a long time partner is something to get past, but they usually do even though it does change you. I don't think Chakotay would go off the deep end like that.
Yes as I have been saying ad nauseum (well it turns my stomach..) since I read all that post Janeway lit the Chakotay stuff was awful. I'm not a Chakotay fan or a J/C'er and I enjoy my little hobby of trashing him on the internets so having to actually become outraged at his character defilement was really shoves me out of my comfort zone.

He got shafted in those per-resurrection books. They turned him into an emo wreck, dragged it out to ridiculous lengths. His friends trekking through some wilderness to bring him back from his pain cave and he rejects them.. angst pulp.

And yeah the 7 stuff was almost at the same level.

Braga: "If 'Timeless' had been a TNG it would've been considered a classic"


Uh, no. "Timeless" is merely decent. Not anywhere near as good as "Flashback".

He's saying that Voyager isn't allowed to be good.

The scale for grading episodes starts at minus 6, but all us ****s drinking the TNG coolaide still call it "out of ten".

Re: Brannon Braga on the Borg in Voyager + his thoughts on the show

interesting that he admits the Borg were used a little too often, and that it was problematic that they kept getting their asses kicked. I guess he couldn't resist the ratings draw.

Re: Brannon Braga on the Borg in Voyager + his thoughts on the show

When are sweeps?

Did the all Borg stories coincide with mid season hiatus, end season or sweeps?

the big event ones did-"Scorpion," "Unimatrix Zero," and "Endgame" were season(or series) finales. Was "Dark Frontier" a sweeps event?

Hands up if you're easily manipulated!? Because they figured out how to stick their hand up your ass and make you empty your wallet into their advertising... RESIST! RESIST!

What's with all the threads titled 'Brannon Braga...(does/says something or other)' here and ENT? I don't care to read anything about the man.
