Re: My first voyage with Voyager

Course Oblivion is a good episode, but it freaked me out a little the first time I watched it.

I found it very disturbing. Was it supposed to be disturbing?

I am fake. The real me died doing something important and they had to replace her before they'd gotten the copy up to code.

I, too, liked "Course: Oblivion". It was a really cool what-if story and I appreciated the callback to the earlier episode. But, as others have said, I wish they would have gone even farther in the end. Like having Janeway and Chakotay finally living out their feelings for one another.

How pissed off would the J/C'ers be if the fake J and C actually got it on, waking up in bed next to each other, the whole deal and then it was the fake ones!!! Quite a troll.

Probably not as much as what we actually got, and I can tell you there were a lot of pretty pissed fans out there. That's why there is far more Voyager fan fiction on FanFiction.net than all the other Treks combined. That's why there is even a face book group for J/C fan fiction recommendations even to this day.

It is also what sparked all the - Now Tea Cake please cover your eyes, I love you the way you are and I respect your favorite paring - I'm just reporting -

...
...
...
...

"Die Seven Die" fan fiction contests around the ending of the show.
...
...
...
...
You can look now.

And all the let's get together and fix this travesty fan fictions generated since then. I think the last thing the J/C fandom actually did as a whole before the huge big breakup in 2003 was a novel called "Tying The Threads."

The first fan fiction I wrote was a fix "Endgame" fic. around 2003. I plotted out and then tried to give it to my daughter, but she made me write it. Now I am working on an original novel. Maybe I should be grateful to the producers but I'm not lol.

Re: My first voyage with Voyager

So cruel. Did 7 ask for Janeway to reject both her and Chakotay and drive them into each other's arms? No!

I'm still in shock they J/C'd it for reals in Treklit, never expected that. Not because there wasn't reason for it but because Treklit seemed hellbent on Janeway getting nothing but pain. Hopefully in the next book(s) it's just a normal, good relationship and not an angst excuse like with the TNG couples.

No good J/C deed goes unpunished, Teacake.

Kirsten Beyer is probably giving one if not BOTH of them amnesia in the next book.

God I hope so Teacake, the guys and gals of Trek Lit don't do relationships very well. Just thinking about the way the Chakotay character was treated after Janeway's death was horrible. One thing for sure that I know is that David Mack started that BS in his Destiny books, and Beyer (who is the best of the lot when writing relationships) fleshed out what Mack started.

I hate the soap opera feeling around the way Trek Lit writes the Picard/Crusher and the Ryker/Troi relationships. The other thing I don't want to see is Babies. Please Trek Lit don't go there, you have already messed it up twice.

Janeway is not to have a baby.

I don't mind if she kinda adopts one, in an auntish way but that's it.

Janeway had twins. Then abandoned them. They're gonna grow up to be angry vengeful lizards.
