Naomi Wildman can babysit . . ..
Assuming both parents are still in whatever amount of hours passes as full time employment on Voyager I think this is way too much, and beyond the word babysitting and into the word nanny. I think it would be nice for Naomi to help out a few hours a week, especially as the experience of caring for something dependent on you is not something she's had and if she'd been on earth she would have had a puppy or something by now. It's good for her social development. But she's not going to be taking care of the baby 40+ hours a week.

Okay, a holographic nanny can do the lion's share, but let's give Naomi a chance to earn some babysitting credits!

Re: Who would have had to quit their job to look after baby Miral?

Yes I think it would be good for her development to spend time with the only person on the ship younger than herself!

I wonder if she has special socializing programs on the holodeck. It would be weird if Miral was the first baby she ever saw.

Re: Who would have had to quit their job to look after baby Miral?

The age old argument about is there money in the Federation?

Even if there's no money in the Federation, Voyager's economy runs on replicator rations.

Hmmm?

They're communists, so even Suder locked in his room, or the Equinox 5 slave labour gets the same ration as Janeway.

Do the kids get the same replicator ration as the adults?

Baby Naomi, get's the same replicator ration as a full sized adult.

Note.

You don't pay for food in the mess.

You don't pay for your room or air.

You don't pay for holodeck time, but then again Holodeck time is probably rationed out evenly... Which means there just be a conversion table for holodeck time to raplicator rations to holodeck time.

Chakotay got Tom (squint) kicked off the ship for gambling with Replicator rations, yet even Janeway was gambling with replicator rations over the babies sex (due date?) by year seven.

So the black market is a gray area.

Childcare is one of the only few possible legal revenue streams on Voyager.

Before, I've always said that Sam Wildman and Neelix were doing it.

Sex.

But maybe hey weren't?

Maybe it's that everyone else on the ship didn't understand money and found that working for "money" was a little distatseful, and that they would, if they were going to look after the kid, rather volunteer their time for free, which they don't really feel like doing.

It's like when you look after your brothers kids.

It costs 40 to 80 dollars per head to look after them in an interesting meangful way, going somewhere fun, but you're a jerk if you don't foot the bill yourself, so you don't take them out as often as you should.

Neelix was the only person skeevy enough on board to take money from a baby.

It'd only be a problem for a year or two anyway if the baby grows at the same rate as Alexander.

It's a year or two for humans.

For a full blooded Klingon, It'd be months or maybe weeks before they're running and scaling the curtains.

Miral is 1/4 Klingon.

Re: Who would have had to quit their job to look after baby Miral?

Just spent 5 minutes staring into space trying to decide if I'd prefer it if I was 1/4 Klingon.

Time to go outside.

Re: Who would have had to quit their job to look after baby Miral?

To be 1/4 Klingon, either your Mummy or your Daddy would have had to have been half Klingon, or they were both 1/4 Klingon... Is it possible that one, or both your parents could open a tin of baked beans with their teeth, because if so, it's possible that already you might be a quarter Klingon.

Father's method of baked bean tin opening: Marry much younger woman who devotedly opens all cans while setting himself up as an ebay mogul.

Father is obviously a Ferengi.

Mother's method of baked bean tin opening: Oh don't worry about me, I ate last week, if you'll just open the tin for me these baked beans will last me at least three days.. Family immediately takes her out to expensive dinner.

Mother is obviously a Ferengi.

sigh..

Was the nudity difficult?

It's almost impossible to be nude in this weather with how quickly the dusting of frost turns into a sheet of ice against the flesh.
