It was the second time it happened to me in an hour.

2 double posts in 2 hours?

That's three in a row, so off straight to jail without collecting money for passing go.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

No, two cases of posting at the same time as someone else within an hour. Though the other one contradicted the other guy's post.

The worst was when I was doing a run on all the 5-word threads, and it happened 3 times. CoolEddie must get a text message on them, he hits them pretty fast.

eddie is like some kind of TrekBBS ninja, though, so it's understandable.

Thanks to both of you for catching my little faux pas.

We all make them.

Except for the ladies of course.

Well I'm only going by extrapolation. There was an Intrepid class (sometimes two) almost always docked at the station whenever there was an EXT. shot. I assume one is Bellerophon since that's Ross's ship. But I also remember reading somewhere, that Intrepid was also there. And for all I know, it was in a novel that I read it.

I thought it was mostly one of the horrid kitbashes - one that used Intrepid parts (among other things of course) - that showed up during those DS9 establishing shots. I don't remember seeing actual Intrepids. I could be wrong, though, and whether or not an Intrepid was actually SEEN in the background vs. just kitbashes, I agree that it would make sense for the Bellerophon to be one of the ships stationed at - or at least near - DS9 during the war. In arguments past on these boards, I've maintained that I never bought the idea of the Intrepid being a decidedly combat-oriented ship, but that it would be invaluable during the Dominion War as a scout or courier. Could be that the Bellerophon serves in that function for the Bajor sector's standing fleet, and Ross tapped it for that mission since it's fast, but also has enough amenities to ferry VIPs.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

This logic seems similar to suggesting that Picard was almost always on duty because we almost always saw him on the bridge.

I didn't like the switch to a single pilot position, but i know it was just to save money from hiring somebody with no lines to play navigator.
But that was already done on TNG, it has nothing to do with Voyager specifically.

It means that Paris, or whichever of his minions is at the helm, was doing the job of two people.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

well it's obvious that new starship design is more mechanised, and has made the position of a navigator redundant :P Happens everywhere, doesn't it? Like airliners don't need a flight engineer anymore.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

So if this is just a software upgrade... What do they do with the extra seat on the bridge of all the older ships after they get the patch?

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

Well we've seen that starships seem to be pretty modular, and I bet under the floor there are plenty of plug sockets for consoles. So if a starship needs to be upgraded, they could easily bring in the new console and plug it in.

Or hire an extra betazoid so we have 2 people stating the obvious every time we meet someone!

Pft, if you notice, Janeway will take -every- opportunity to stand at a higher elevation than the person she's talking with.
