Alpha? Beta? What about the Sigma or Theta?

Chakotay was plenty Alpha in Caretaker. Honestly I think Jeri Taylor just toned him way back because she didn't want him stealing Janeway's spotlight.

Actually from the female view point right now in romantic literature, the beta male (think accountant, wears glasses, isn't physical) has a lot of fans. I know that there are a lot of fan fic authors that write Chakotay as the "alpha" male type, but I find nothing wrong with the "beta" Chakotay we saw most often on Voyager.
I would never personally go above beta

He looked good in those leathers too.

I don't think those have been classified yet LOL. The Alpha/Beta Hero is much discussed in some circles.

and Teacake, I never liked him so much in the leather pants LOL. I also liked his early series crew cut with the honest gray hair.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

I liked the crew cut too Brit!

As to rankings past Alpha and Beta I found this:



It seems I only make it as high as Gamma in the attraction game. The Betas are too much for me

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Chakotay is definitely Beta if that chart is anything to go by.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Despite whatever coping mechanisms these people use to impersonate genuine human emotions anyone who joins a terrorist organization and starts killing their former friends family, allies, neighbours and government officials, they are an automatic Omega.

If before Meld, there had been a catastrophic loss of senior officers, Lieutenant Lon Suder would have become Captain before Harry did.

So you agree then that Chakotay is utter fail for Janeway. Good.

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

You've read Jeri's novel all about him, and you still call him a Beta?

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

I have completely forgotten everything in that novel. I only remember one tiny bit from its sequel and that was about 7 of 9.

What did he do? Did he wield the pooper scooper inappropriately?

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

He was the childhood friend that stood by her side at ever turn.

When Mark was younger, he went by his middle name "Hobbes".

It was a huge reveal at the end.

"I think I'd prefer it if you called me Mark from now on."

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

I do recall that reveal now.. but are you saying he's not the beta in orbit he appears to be when he skypes her?

Re: Chakotay and Janeway romance

Mark was already remarried in less than 4 years, and he wouldn't give her dog back.

A more dependant man would have killed himself, a slightly less dependant man would have wallowed in grief for 20 years then died of a broken heart, a yet still more slightly less dependant man would have divorced or murdered his new wife upon finding out that Kathryn was still alive... And so on.

4 years is quick.

If he wasn't hitting on women at Kathryn's funeral, pulling prime tottie using lines about needing consolation that worked so well, he then crashed every funeral for all 150 crewmen to keep his wick wet for the next 2 years.

4 years is far too quick.

Mark must have been already having an affair with at least one woman when Kathryn was lost in space.
