Oh except 7.. you can chuck her out with Janeway. Marooned, even.
I'm sure there's a fanfic for that. Several in fact. Almost tempts me to write a hot and steamy Seven/Janeway fic and at the moment things really get going, have Harry Kim stumble in and kill the mood. Completely consistent!

Or...
Janeway could force him down and make him join. He is a stickler for following Captain's orders.

But...I'm not sure I'd want to see that.

Janeway and Seven marooned on a planet. Harry, separately marooned, completely by extraordinary coincidence, discovers them and upends the cozy relationship. Janeway sends Harry out to search for nuts and berries. Big alien monster eats Harry, and there's no Harry replacement available from another timeline/alternate universe. Janeway and Seven live happily ever after.

You people are always so mean to Harry. He doesn't need to die, he can be the cabana boy. Janeway and 7 need drinks fetched.

You're right, Harry would be willing to do anything, as long as it takes, if he thought it might get him Lieutenant pips.

No pips for sad Harry. But you're right, he would do anything for the mere thought of them.

Harry can't die. He's the real survivor in the team. Just look at this:

2371
Infected with a fatal disease at the Caretaker's array. (Caretaker)

Executed by poison but brought back to life (VOY book Escape)

Badly injured and close to death (VOY book Ragnarok)

Killed but brought back to life by The Doc (Emanations)

Dissapeared from holodeck and the ship but brought back (Heroes And Demons)

Severly exposed to radiation (VOY book The Final Fury)

2372
Was in a shuttlecraft and ended up in a time stream and brought back to Earth in another reality. Almost killed on return back to the ship when the shuttle exploded (Non Sequitur)

Badly injured but rescued in the last minute (VOY book Ghost Of A Chance)

Deadly injured in an explosion on board an alien wreck. Chakotay and Kes found the away team and brought them back in time, therefore Kim was saved. (VOY book Cybersong)

Almost drowned on an alien planet. Beamed back to the ship in the last possible moment (VOY book Bless The Beasts)

Actually killed when he was blown out in space. Replaced by an identical duplicate (Deadlock)

Almost decapitated by The Clown in an alternate reality. Saved by The Doctor who appeared in the last moment (The Thaw)

Captured by the Nograkh together with B'Elanna and forced to work in a radioactive mine. Beaten up by alien prisoners. Badly poisoned by radiation and close to ram an asteroid while escaping from the mine (VOY book Her Klingon Soul).

Almost died in an underground cave during an earthquake. Injured his knee Saved by Paris and Kes. (VOY book Chrysalis)

2373
Badly affected by long time exposure of psychic vampires but no further damage (VOY book The Black Shore)

Badly beaten and mistreated on a prison planet (The Chute)

Almost killed by vampire women on Taresia. Beamed back to the ship in the last possible moment (Favorite Son).

And that was only the first three years. The guy is invincible and deserves a promotion. The true hero of Voyager.

He never told anyone this, not even Neelix, but he secretly enjoyed every minute of it.

Re: Best female Star Trek Cast?

The Chute was supposed to be the herald ep of the slashiest relationship ever since Julian and Miles but alas that is the most we ever got from Tom and Harry. And yet people who write tomes about how VOY didn't live up to its potential fail to mention this.

Re: Best female Star Trek Cast?

Best female cast?....probably but in terms of female characters, i think TNG was better...the original series sexualised women to such an extent that when it came time for the politically correct TNG, they obviously decided to try and avoid doing that (though they were happy to do it with female cameo characters a little) most of the regular TNG female cast are intelligent, confident and fully dressed for the most part

by the time voyager comes round, attitudes had again relaxed a little and they went back to some sexualisation (embodied by Seven)

Seska was the most interesting female character (killed off too soon)

^ Trois's dressed just like my mom going to Jazzercize in 1988. Why do science fiction costume designers always think that what's in fashion right now will last 400 years with only a few tweaks?

I suspect it would have to do with selling it to an audience right now.

Re: Best female Star Trek Cast?

I have no problem with looking at women's bodies, but when that aerobics scene from "The Price" aired in first run, I was somewhat appalled they would do such a cheap and obvious ratings stunt. I don't know what Gates and Marina thought when they saw the script. I'm sure they enjoyed having a scene together, but staging it as an exercise scene with gratuitous camera angles took me right out of the story. The scene could have just as easily been shot in sickbay or Ten Forward without all the stretching exercises. I'm rather surprised this single scene gave me a negative reaction, but I never was an ass man.
