Jetrel was an awesome episode! It gave Neelix some depth.

I think it's sweet how Neelix dotes on Kes. I think they are cute together.

Re: Kes and Neelix

In the Walking Dead, that should have been the question to determination the character of the people they met before asking them to join or not join their group... "Team Jocob, or Team Edward?"

The only acceptable answer is of course: "Go fuck yourself."

They make an adorable couple! (I would LIKE to think that, if not for that damn warlord thing, Kes and Neelix never would have broken up.)

Sure, Neelix is a tad jealous at times, but never dangerously so. Let's put it this way: I suspect that Kes was his first love, and thus he was unprepared for a relationship and kind of overcompensated at times. Before Kes, he wasn't used to being a boyfriend and didn't know "how" to be one. Fair enough, yes?
I think Kes really has had enough of Neelix when the warlord invaded her body. When the warlord broke up with Neelix, it made her realize that that's what she wanted to do. She never tried to get back with Neelix after that.

Re: Kes and Neelix

I am being a massive dick when I say that we are not sure that that is a fact.

At the time I assumed they got back together, or the break up never happened since it was based on bad faith, and then became utterly perplexed about what the #### was happening the first time Kes tried to get it on with another bloke in Darkling, 8 episodes later.

They could have broken up for legitimate reasons, like say when Neelix dabbled in drug dealing?

We don't know.

The real break up happened off screen, and it could have happened anywhen between Warlord and Darkling which is about 6 to 10 months in real time, which is a fair chunk of Kes' life.

UM?

Can Q see Kes?

Omniscience means that he sees a persons entire life, 30 years backwards, and a hundred years forward splooged sideways across an infinite number of timelines.

9 years.

He'd confuse her for a bug if he didn't squint.

Re: Kes and Neelix

Kes should've had an Ocampan husband/boyfriend and Neelix should've been their friend. It would've been interesting to have a ready-made couple onboard, from the very beginning - one that offset eachother, somehow, perhaps. Maybe with Neelix always having had a crush on her, if the husband died, or something like that, with her resisting it. That might've made it a little more interesting than what we got.

In terms of what was actually shown, had Kes not tolerated his calling her "sweety" all the time and his jealousy, it would've been easy to not pick up on the fact that they were an item, at all.

VOYAGER introduces us to 2 new aliens that seem kind of interesting in their own right and makes them a couple, already, for no good reason, except to make us question why it happened and how it survives. But Jennifer Lien was very beautiful and talented and got a raw deal, from the start. The cast seems to have been particularly fond of her, too. It just wasn't in the cards ...

Re: Kes and Neelix

I couldn't stand having two Ocampans on board.

And yes I agree, it was only his endearments and jealousy that showed them to be a couple. It was pretty much invisible otherwise. I wonder why.

Re: Kes and Neelix

They were kissing each other in the pilot.

I wonder who decided they should have separate rooms?

One of them, or a prude thinking that only married couples get a stateroom.

No.

That would have been the Operations Officer allocating billets.

And Harry was in the recovery position underneath Ocampa after being raped by Caretaker when the crew met Neelix.

If during those 30 minutes, Kim was possibly dead, whoever cowboyed up and took the operations officer Job, must have been quite put out when it was found that Kim was alive again... All the times they thought Kim was dead until it was proved that he wasn't.

Kim's understudy has to be the gimpiest position on the ship.

Re: Kes and Neelix

kim is a ridiculous creature who does not understand an opportunity when it presents itself.

"Please, please, B'Elanna I don't want to die before I've even ever kissed a girl."

Kim said no when Jeri Ryan asked if he wanted to have intercourse. That has to be the dumbest answer, EVER!!!

Not really if you could see how boring she is on the inside.

Luckily his wussiness collaterally allowed him to side step a freight train worth of dull.

I find that they'll promise you almost anything to let them out of the sack.
