Re: Did You Like Seven Of Nine?

I'm more than likely one of the few people here who actually liked the Chakotay/Seven pairing, although I do agree that it needed a little more build-up than it got.

In fact, the only downside for me in the first two Voyager Relaunch novels is that Christie Golden chose to break off/'undo' the Seven/Chakotay pairing, which struck me as an unnecessary thing to do and something that smacked of 'audience pandering' since there had been a lot of fan outcry when Endgame aired and the two characters were suddenly together with little explanation.

What's this hard on that sci-fi nerds have with hitching artificial lifeforms with organic humanoids?
Well that explains Leeta and Rom.
Bah, that's just pandering to the sci-fi nerd crowd that a troll looking loser can end up with a hot babe like Leeta.

I sometimes wonder if the writers were simply fanwanking their own desires into Trek Canon.

Re: Did You Like Seven Of Nine?

When first aired, I normally saw Voyager only occasionally. I'd tune in, and it seemed Seven was always talking to some little kid. "How exciting", said I.

After later watching the series, the Seven and Naomi scenes were often my favorites! Gotta hand it to that kid: she held her own playing against Jeri Ryan!

Funny how early perceptions are...

But to address the thread question, Jeri Ryan was great. She carried off all that "goofy" Star Trek-type stuff very well! Excellent actress!

The hilarious side effect of linking to that site I've found.
Looks like Seven to me. Or is this some esoteric joke I'm just not getting?
I clicked the link twice, and both times I got a photo of an actor in a Robin Hood show I've never seen.
And now it's showing me the Robin Hood pic. How very strange.

Anyway, just run a Google Image Search for "Seven Of Nine Brown Catsuit". You'll see some examples.

Re: Did You Like Seven Of Nine?

I say yes, but it's a qualified yes.
Jeri Ryan is a very good actress. My favorite scenes with her are when she was possessed by the Doctor so she gets to play his character. She really nailed that, so we got to see her range beyond Seven.
Seven did bring a lot to the table, with her connection to the Borg, and her struggle to adapt to life outside the collective, discovering her humanity.
I agree with a lot of what has been said already. The catsuit was exploitive and sexist. If they put any guys in an outfit that tight, at least it would've been equitable.
The series did use Seven too much as a quick fix. The awkward relationship with Chakotay was awful. It should've been Janeway and Chakotay at the end.
It may be a little unfair of me, but even though I really do like Seven, I resented her a little too, since she replaced Kes. I'd have loved to have had lots more episodes with Kes and Seven, I think there was potential for an interesting sisterly relationship between them.

Why can't I save that gif? Must have that gif!
I remember that episode very well. Almost fell out of my chair while watching it.

Nevermind. Just Googled "Jeri Ryan gif". Found a great companion to that gif with Jeri on her back. Now back to Google.

Re: Did You Like Seven Of Nine?

Might have to ask Janeway, I assume she's off camera?
