The VOY forum has the second most posts after TOS in the Series forums! It is clearly a demi-god. 1500 posts more than TNG, hahahaha
Could that in part be down to that VOY is one or the more divisive of the shows. That is to say it is equally loved and hated.

No. It is because love is loquacious.

Also Voyager was on for the largest percentage of the forum's peak.

But those years aren't a part of the post count as I understand it. You can only go back so far.

It actually seems more hated than loved, or maybe it has equal amounts of lovers and haters, but the hate in the haters is more intense than the love in its fans.


Anyway, Garrett Wang vs. an evil pinata. I saw that movie. Yes it was worse than "Favorite Son" or "Threshold" , though those episodes aren't as horrible as people make it out to be. Maybe those people are allergic to cheese?

Though in terms on number of threads it comes in 4th behind

TOS
DSN
TNG

Re: This Forum Ten Years Ago

That's because all our threads are really the same thread because we are not bound by the rigid thread decorum that so stifles other forums.

You know how I periodically go on and on about how I want Janeway and Kirk to be lovers? Well yesterday I saw this man and I kept thinking how there's similarities of style in the way they talk (Mulgrew being a larger than life version of some of Janeway's characteristics) and that TIME TRAVEL WAS NEEDED. At some point. For someone.

Wow. This brings back memories. Remember when Batboy was watching and critiquing Voyager episodes? Poor guy started with Threshhold and freaked out.

We had more than our share of trolls, fans, and good times. And I was ten whole years younger (eep!).

Well to be fair "Threshold" is exactly Trek at it's best.

Re: This Forum Ten Years Ago

I think it's hilarious and the speculation over their abandoned babies makes me happy. The way it is just a bog standard Trek story right up until it morphs into an insanely camp farce is great.

Voyager is not equally loved and hated.

it's equally hated and apologized for.

Re: This Forum Ten Years Ago

Voyager has a huge huge fan following outside of this forum. It's easy to get rather myopic about how well certain parts of Trek are received by reading here.

Re: This Forum Ten Years Ago

To continue my point about the myopic view of fandom's opinions just reading this forum gives you..

Yesterday I saw William Shatner (yes this is the second time I've mentioned this, yes I am insanely happy about it) and one of the first people to ask him a question said..

"Mr. Shatner first of all I want to welcome you to Melbourne blah blah blah blah [they always crap on] and I want to tell you that Star Trek V is my favorite Star Trek movie.."

And roaring through my head it was as if millions of bbs posters suddenly cried out..

It's always funny to talk Trek away from this place.
