Chakotay and Janeway romance

Have the producers of voyager ever explained why they never pursued a Janeway and Chakotay romance? It might of actually made Chakotay kind of interesting and would of added some character to the show along with the dilemma of fraternizing with a insubordinate, it would of been interesting.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

She seemed awfully fond of Chakotay when visiting his grave. So much so as to go back and save him. Maybe it was a well kept secret.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Kate said no because she believed "sex" would make her character look weak.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Kate told them she did not want the first female captain to be derailed by romance. She's talked about it many times, here's one clip:



"I'm glad I didn't sleep with Chakotay." If I wasn't in love with my sig I'd be using that!

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

I think that Mulgrew was right and that it was a good idea to keep both Janeway and Chakotay as psrofessional as possible when they were in charge.

But there were obviously something between them and if the writers had been smart, they could have come up with "happy end" in the last episodes.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

If Chakotay was amused that Seven was sleeping with a holographic version of himself, how much of the rest of the crew was sleeping with a holographic version of Janeway? And how would that have made Janeways steely resolve have shudder?

What she should have done was slept with the lowest ranked crewman and then demoted him (her?) some more.

Tuvok as Security Chief must have been supposed to keep up on top of these holoshenanigans?

Or did he lose all credibility after he spent a day murdering Neelix over and over again in Meld?

In his training program where the Maquis mutinied, do you think his original parameters allowed for one side or the other to be misled, seduced and won over with sexual favours?

Which means that every character in the game/training exercise had a sluttiness quotient you could "roll" against. Nothing short of a critical hit is going to make Janeway drop her britches however.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Considering how his omniscience works, that pervert probably thinks that she has a right sexy liver, and spends so much time leering at it through her manly uniform.

Considering how his omniscience works, he knew what it was like to be in the tub with her billions of years before she was born.

No wonder he's so bored. Been there, done that everything.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Yeah, I never did like the concept that Janeway thought romance would undermine her command somehow. Chakotay and Janeway... well would be a decent enough match, though it would be quite obvious who's wearing the pants in that relationship.

Really one of Voyager's main weaknesses was they seemed so sensitive about the concept of a female captain, that they go to great lengths not to seemingly undermine her authority, that they just end up making the character a parody in so many ways.

Regardless she had no problem holohumping in Fair Haven or getting it on with the Gestapo agent in Counterpoint.

You didn't get the whole scarecrow thing?

The universe is a circle.

It goes back to the beginning again after it dies.

But when the lights are out, between death and rebirth, the Q's all switch places and then live out each other lives for the duration of the life of the universe, and then switch up again after it ends again and restarts ad infinitum.

They've been doing this for forever in both directions.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

I think Mulgrew was wrong too, but if you look at very early interviews, she wasn't so against a romance with Chakotay. So you say what happened? And nobody knows for sure, personally I think once Jeri Taylor was gone and the Three Bs had their way with Voyager and any question of romance was out, she changed her tune, or she was more open to J/C when Jeri Taylor was in charge.

I even understand why she thought it could be wrong, but bottom line. On a starship that was looking at a 70 year journey (yes I know they had got it down to around 35 at the end), you cannot make me believe that only one couple got married, had an affair, or a relationship; and that there was only one baby born.

A lot of guys are always harping about how Voyager was always clean and neat. You know that doesn't bother me at all. But there should have been children, and that's the one that bothers me.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Or in the beginning Kate hadn't shagged Beltran, then near the beginning Mulgrew had shagged Bobby, then for the rest of her professional career the actress attempted to feign denial and distance herself from any resurgence of the possibility of such a tryst coming to light again in any universe.

To be fair, if my illicit love affair with one of my co-stars had resulted in me giving birth to a litter of alligator lizard things on the floor of the studio canteen, I'd be pretty embarrassed to mention it on my resume too.

Bobby Beltran, not Bobby McNeil.

Highly rumoured, possibly real, not confirmed.
