Which of these guest-characters should Janeway have been with?

I'm just curious as to which non-main characters (this excludes Chakotay, Tom, Seven, or anyone else on the opening credits) you think Janeway should have continued to be romantically involved with for more than an episode or two? If you HAD to choose.

Just wondering which guest star people think she fits best with.

1. Kashyk
2. Mark Johnson
3. Q (ok, she was never involved with him, but he did proposition her to mate and did occasionally appear in her tub)
4. Michael Sullivan
5. Jaffen

Her chemistry with the Gestapo agent was the most natural!

Re: Which of these guest-characters should Janeway have been with?

But if she would have taken Jaffen's deal, Seska wouldn't have gotten uppity and the Kazon would have left Voyager alone for the first two years. All they wanted was a couple replicators, maybe a torpedo or two and some blow jobs.

OH!

Jaffen, not Jabin.

I thought that sounded odd.

I picked Kashyk even though I'm aware he turned out (at least what they display on the show) to be untrustworthy. However he makes sure that Voyager is allowed safe passage and ultimately seemed to care for her.

Nevertheless, the two of them had good banter and chemistry...plus she finally got her first hot, non-holographic kiss since she'd been in the Delta Quadrant. That kiss had passion!

Jaffen was sweet too, but I don't think their chemistry was as real as the one with Kashyk.

I agree with Teacake that Michael Sullivan was quite literally Janeway's dreamboy...but I just can't get over the fact that he's a hologram...originally designed by Tom Paris nonetheless. Although I have no qualms with the Seven/Doctor pairing for some reason. I just can't see Janeway ultimately sharing a life with the Fair Haven Irishman hologram. That's not to say I think Janeway didn't thoroughly enjoy his company while they were together.... We know she did!

I'm going to skip over my assessment of Mark for the time being. I haven't read the Jeri Taylor book yet (though I've downloaded it and will read it soon) that I believe goes more into her pre-VOY relationships.

I think her and Q had awesome chemistry and I like their relationship. His antics were just too much for her though and he resides on an entirely different plane of existence which would be problematic. But their banter is still priceless I think.

I wasn't answering for "ultimately sharing a life" but rather for having some satisfying sex and picnics and still being able walk out the door and say "computer, end program".

It would have been quite radical for them to just have him there in the background as Janeway's holo-lover!

Tuvok: Mr Neelix, do you know where the Captain is?

Neelix: Oh well ummm you see ummm she's...

Tuvok: I take it she is spending her off duty time in the holodeck.

Re: Which of these guest-characters should Janeway have been with?

I think the word "and" inbetween "sex" and "picnic" is unnecessary.

Between Fair Haven and Threshold, I think it's quite obvious that Janeway is subconsciously attracted to Tom Paris.

Subconscious?

There was a press release from the TPTB during preproduction promising an epic love story between Paris and Janeway.

That would have been revolting.

I only like them as a couple when they are salamanders.

All of them. It's Starfleet Order #753: "Captains must sleep with all and every guest star of the show".

Re: Which of these guest-characters should Janeway have been with?

The statement was probably put forward, they called Tom Paris their "leading Man", before casting was complete, which left them with more of a manchild for Tom Paris than they had been expecting, as well as an actress unwilling to submit her character to sensational sexualism, or sexual sensationalism.

If Boujold hadn't already quit, maybe this would have been a dealbreaker for Berman and Taylor?

An actor acting like she's a producer?

Kate's head should have rolled.

I'm sure Bujold and Paris would have been HOT. Everyone would have loved it.
