Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

Gay crewmen would be on the Doctor's list too.
The Pathways novel that Jeri Taylor wrote had a gay male couple that were both security officers, they only had a very small role in the book, but that was the first (maybe only?) confirmation that there were gays on Voyager.
I completely agree though, that anyone who the Doctor thought would be a rival wouldn't be considered. His choices would all be gay and/or married

The Doctor violently opposed kissing other guys in Body and Soul.

Well I wouldn't give her my sperm, if I had any. Who wants to create a child they know they will outlive, probably before they even get old?

I would pay B'Elanna in babysitting to tweak his programming.

Did you know that there was once such a thing as Pink Kryptonite?

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

Other way around.

Under it's effect Superman was supergay.

(It was a two panel joke during a flashback-montage, but it did happen.)

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

An egomaniac like Zimmerman would be likely to program his hologram likenesses to be heterosexual just because he was. Same with Soong.
Yeah, the pink Kryptonite. It was in one panel of a Supergirl comic around the late 90s. It made Superman gay, but it was just a one panel joke. At the time Supergirl was living in the campy Silver Age Earth One, where red Kryptonite was used to have wacky effects of Superman, like make him a baby or a gorilla, or spit into good and evil doubles. It was written by Trek author Peter David.
As far as I know that's the only appearance of the Pink K.

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

Peter David killed Janeway and NOW I read that he had a trippy side and instead of killing her he could have ray gunned her with a pink ray gun and TURNED HER GAY and made many of us very very happy. What a jerk.

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

Why would Zimmerman program a hologram only ment for medical emergencies with sexual desire? Did he want it to molest patients?

The same reason people make their warcraft characters hot.

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

Last century the US Army spent millions of dollars trying to build a gay bomb, assuming that if they could undermine hereto sexuality in the enemy completely, that there would not be a next generation of enemy soldiers.

Re: Could Fury have worked with a rewrite?

I assume that Zimmerman was such an egomaniac that he made sure all his avatars were straight. It at least explains why a hologram was apparently mimicing the orientation of a heterosexual male.
While Peter David wrote the book that killed Janeway, from what I've read it was an editorial decision, and they just told him to do it. How he killed her was his choice, and he chose to kill her in such a way that she wasn't really really dead and had a built in way to be brought back. I don't think Peter David is such a bad guy, and I at least partially credit him for leaving the door cracked open for Janeway to return.
