The same person arguing with themselves? And our Q is just a moment of petulance that goes on forever?

Continually in some sort of continuum.

There is no point in it dying because if it did die and disappear some ensign would start another thread about it.

"Hey guys I just had this crazy thought, do you think what Janeway did to Tuvix could be considered murder?"

True.

I wonder if anyone has posted "He's dead, Jim!"

If it was Neelix and some random crewmember instead of Tuvok, she might have made a different decision....

If it was 7 smushed into someone she would ripped them apart with her bare hands to free her.

OMG.. what if it was 7 AND Chakotay??

Would that be her perfect match?

Janeway and the Doctor murdered thousands of living identities acting up inside Seven's head who were contributing towards her personality and intellect.

Re: Why Kathryn Janeway is the BEST Star Fleet Captain... EVER!

They didn't murder them, they freed them.

Would you like to be trapped inside 7 forever and ever?

Oh wait.. don't answer that.

Re: Why Kathryn Janeway is the BEST Star Fleet Captain... EVER!

It would have been more than possible to free them, transferring all those "files" off into a fishtank like Picard made for Moriarty to play in.

And besides, copies of all those people are still inside the collective along with several versions of Anika Hansen, so they were still prisoners no matter what they did on Voyager.

Even Laura agrees that Janeway is a sexy lady!

I think Regina would give up being evil for Janeway!

Q: Where's your stubbornness now, Picard, your arrogance? Do you still profess to be prepared for what awaits you?
WORF: The Borg ship is re-establishing its tractor beam.
RIKER: Lock on photon torpedoes.
WORF: Yes, sir.
DATA: Without our shields, at this range there is a high degree of probability that a photon detonation could destroy the Enterprise.
RIKER: Prepare to fire.

Q: I'll be leaving now. You thought you could handle it, so handle it.
PICARD: Q. End this.
Q: Moi? What makes you think I am either inclined or capable to terminate this encounter?
PICARD: If we all die, here, now, you will not be able to gloat. You wanted to frighten us. We're frightened. You wanted to show us that we were inadequate. For the moment, I grant that. You wanted me to say I need you. I need you!
(With a snap of Q's fingers, the Enterprise goes whirling through space again)


Her ship is thrown 75,000 light years away from home, and she doesn't need Q to get her back, much less save her from the BORG!

Comparing the "early" Picard and Janeway in their respective first seasons - I agree. Although I think that the late Captain Picard is a better Captain compared to Janeway. Simply because Janeway developed into sort of a "head-through-the-wall", bottomlessly deep and somewhat isolated being, who was eaten up by her guilt, while Picard became more human than he was at start. I don't complain about the development of Janeway's character. It was not without alternatives, but it was a logical thing to happen, considering her original persona (and if anything it attracted me even more to her). But I do not think this development made her a better captain.
