Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The Borg are the one Delta Quadrant race that Voyager should have kept encountering and, realistically, they really should have encountered them far more frequently than they did over the course of 7 seasons.

That argument doesn't hold any water whatsoever and, quite frankly, is incredibly silly. The Borg and Voyager kept encountering each other because the Borg kept following Voyager to a certain degree.
It wasn't just the Borg that VOY kept running into it was several species, including running into the Kazon(a less advanced species) several times over the course of the first 2 years. I was using "The Gift" as an example because the way the episode ended implied that VOY was done with the Borg. And the Borg never followed VOY.

The entire Delta Quadrant wasn't Borg space, in "The Gift" VOY was thrown 10 years past borg space, so they really shouldn't have kept running into them.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

If the Borg really were not interested in assimilating Voyager, then logically, it should have been safe for the Queen and Harry to date.

No it wasn't.

Voyager was on the edge of Borg Space, and Kes flung it 10kly to the other edge of Borg Space.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

@Brunt: The Borg were never 'confined' to their own territory, nor should they expected to have been.

As for the Kazon, encounters with them obviously ended once Voyager passed beyond the point where their technology allowed them to travel.

You're trying to make the argument that if Voyager were truly to have been constantly on the move, they shouldn't have encountered any given alien species more than once even though the species they re-encountered were themselves traversing the Quadrant and weren't 'staying put' in their own territory.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The expanse of Kazon influence went 35 episodes in one direction from Caretakers array, and it's not unreasonable to assume that it might have gone 35 episodes in couple other directions from Caretakers array too.

%95 of the other races Voyager met up with, their territory didn't extend further than one episode.

Is Kazon Space really possibly at least 17 and a half times bigger than the Krenum Emperium?

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

I can't remember. Qhat had happened in the alpha quadrant in that TNG ep qhere the Borg had taken over the qhole quadrant? Qhere Riker is on the Enterprise in the alt timeline screaming for help? HOQ had they taken over the qhole AQ?

(A large and solid object fell on my keyboard and the double u key has flied off and is missing also another key but I can't remember qhat it does and so far have not missed it.)

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Parallels

That happened because the Borg won The Best of Both Worlds.

They were committed to their action. It didn't matter that they were there for the wrong reasons, chasing the Q, because they overestimated how integral Man was to the Q.

Because of the Borgs constant defeats in the AQ in the reality we are familiar with, they keep putting off going back to Picard's front yard because they don't like the bloody noses he doles out.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

I have taken the kew key and placed it on the W key because there are more W's.

SO that win means they take over a whole wuadrant in a very very very short time. They have been mansplaining in the DKew for a couple CENTURIES.

"We are the Borg. We are superior. You are retards and we will add you to our wonderfulness and you will know perfection."

If they could devour the Akew in such a short period of time having them be allllllll over the Dkew seems rather obvious. Though they did run into species who had never heard of the Borg.. but their time is no doubt coming.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Also I just wanna say that when I first saw Parallels I laughed my ass off at how desperate and awful poooooooor alt Riker's life was. Such was my loathing.

The Kazon only appeared in 12 episodes over the course of the first three seasons, and only 3 additional times in the remaining seasons, so I'm not sure where you got your figures from.

It's their dreadlocks. Even when they aren't onscreen you can smell the patchouli oil.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The Kazon weren't even referenced in passing beyond their 15 physical appearances, so I don't really see how their limited use - especially in the context of the show as a whole - stretches credibility.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Caretaker part 1 to Basics part 2 = 43 episodes.

(I thought there were less episodes in season 2.)

Did anyone else chase Voyager for 2 seasons?

Even in 30 days, the Aliens of the week only chased terrorist Tom for 30 days, and that only took one episode, although his demotion lasted for over a season.
