Voyager Predicted Our Current President

Exhibit A:

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, I was reading up on various Voyager episodes on Memory Alpha, notably Future's End Part II. I came across this quote:

"They've got lasers! A black man and some bald guy!"
- One of the farmers [in the shoot out]

These paranoid supremecist farmers would have encountered Obama and Biden. With LASERS. But you know who they're talking about. Still, I've long argued that no US Administration is complete without LASERS.

Once again, Star Trek proves that it's visionary

Exhibit B:
Well, there's no Exhibit B. Just take this shoddy idea and run with it!

Oh, my threads never do. Hence why I post on other people's threads instead.

Still, reading that on Memory Alpha brought a small and stupid chuckle to my face nonetheless. There's not much to make fun of Obama personally or physically, but Biden's hair plugs? That's prime material!

Didn't Future's End take place too early for Obama and Biden? Those farmers probably saw Colin Powell and Dick Cheney toting lasers.

Future's End took place in 1996 so it would've been Clinton and Gore.

I agree this thread will not end well.

Re: Voyager Predicted Our Current President

I will admit when I watched and heard that quote in Future's End I laughed histerically..but mainly because the farmer was talking about the Doc and Tuvok-not some president.

This thread only serves as an observation from a quote in "Future's End". Other than that, it serves no purpose so I'm not for sure if it'll end well or not.

Re: Voyager Predicted Our Current President

Voyager did sort of play a role in Obama's rise to power: Jack Ryan was his opponent for the Senate position and the public finding out about what perversions he forced Jeri through cost him that and gave it to Obama.

The rest, they say, is history.

That's the thing about predictions. They can happen say, oh, about 12 years before something actually happens. That's what makes them predictions!

Besides, if it were Riker and Data to the rescue (the Ladies Man and the Emotionless Robot, respectively), then yeah, the OP would've been a joke thread about Clinton and Gore. Except it wouldn't just be about Clinton and Gore, but rather Clinton and Gore with LASERS.

Well, of course it's merely an observation. Like I said, I had a nice chuckle at the coincidence!

I actually remember that, as Jack Ryan was from my county! I had the good fortune to meet Obama in a church basement several years before his US Senate run. I though Ryan was likeable enough but Obama was more personable. Still, the whole scandal was a severe blow, and voting for Obama over Alan Keyes -- Ryan's replacement -- was one of the easiest votes I ever cast in my life.

By the way, Alan Keyes was a man of many contradictions to me: he's a severe homophobe, but his favorite show in all of TV is DS9. Go figure.

But, Joe Biden isn't bald. Certainly nowhere near as much as Robert Picardo.

Picardo doesn't have butt-hair on his head: http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2008/08/bidens_hair.html

Besides, there's no shame in that. Picard (no 'O') proved bald men can be strong leaders!
