Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Pegasus had a self-sustaining/sufficient Viper factory on board... Nukes must have been easier to build if they could source the raw materials?

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

And where would they get the Uranium or the rocket fuel for nuclear missiles? Where would they get the materials needed to run a Viper factory?

And why is Pegasus allowed to have a Viper Factory with no one raising an eyebrow, but VOY can't make more torpedoes or shuttles?

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The Uranium might be difficult to source, which I already admitted, but making the casings should be easy for Pegasus.

Pegasus is allowed to have a Viper factory because it's one of the first things in canon that we found out about Pegasus, meanwhile building new torpedoes is completely beyond Voyager becuase it's one of the first things in canon that they told us about Voyager.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The "We can't make new torpedoes" thing never made any damn sense in the first place. They can make the casings with the replicators, and they have an Anti-Matter Reactor to create the weapons-grade anti-matter with.

So if they have both, why can't they make new torpedoes?

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

The premise was already limited enough as is, and then they go and unnecessarily limit themselves even more.

Meanwhile, NuBSG gets away with the same stuff without bothering to give any explanations either. You just can't win.

Having never watched BSG(Nu or old) I can't comment on it... but whenever the kid uses the defense "but they did it" to explain their own failings, it never works.

And did anyone like those episodes? No?
Kate Mulgrew liked "Counterpoint" and it was her personal selection for the Fan Collective: Captain's Log. She also recommended the guest star.

Counterpoint is wonderful. Many fine fan videos dedicated to that episode.

Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

LOL.


But isn't that the mark of a good show, is that you want to watch the next episode to find out what happens next. Not many shows do that for me, The West Wing is one of the few that has done it for me.
