most out of character moment

I was wondering what everyone thought were the most out of character moments on Voyager.


For Seven of Nine I'd say when she tripped and fell over in Natural Law. It just didn't go with her usual standard of borg perfection. She wont even run unless absolutely necessary, she just walks from danger in a calm manner. So to see her trip was almost as bad as seeing her swoon over planky.

"The Disease" where Nelix actually shows proper sense in discovering, tracking, researching and then, with his ducks beak-to-tail, finally reporting the problem.

You know, Nelix not being a shithead. Way out of character.

Oh yeah, and the whole "Evil Kes" episode. What was up with that shit?

You mean possessed "Evil Kes" or old "Evil Kes?"

(not to be confused with tease Neelix 'till his testicles explode "Evil Kes")

Very funny, but very out of character.

Yeah, I thought that was pretty stupid and way far from Kes.

They were as nice as they could be to her and let her go when she wanted to go. Then suddenly in a few years she forgot it was all her choice and somehow she made herself became a victum? On top of that she came back and tried to kill everyone? Uhm?

I found it to be something he'd rather to say to someone he's close to like Janeway. He wouldn't have said it in company of Tom Paris and Harry Kim. We have seen Vulcan say things like this among those they are comfortable with, like Spock at the end of TUC.

Re: most out of character moment

I know what u guys mean about Kes being out of character but I think it was to show with minimal detail some of the changes she went through and the problems she had with leaving home and how she dealt with them ( not very well).

I agree. The most "out of character" episode ever in any series. Nothing in it made sense.

and if I recall, Seven also dropped her tricorder when she tripped and couldn't pick it up from under the bush....yet the "primative alien girl" recovered it easily. Very out of character for Seven.

C/7 - a completely out of character not to mention jump the shark moment for both characters.

Re: most out of character moment

People like to give Janeway a lot of guff for her decisions over the course of the show, but there was honestly only one time I ever thought she went flat out of character, and that was when she handed the holodeck tech over to the Hirogen in "The Killing Game."

Sure, they were under a lot of stress, but it just seemed wrong for her to cave like that. She never caved. She'd shove the PD around a little at times for survival's sake, but "The Killing Game" was, to me, the only time she ever socked it in the face.

I do love that episode, but every time it gets to the end I'm always yelling, "No, no, noooooooo!"

Thankfully, that decision rightfully came back to bite her in the butt in "Flesh and Blood" and she admitted it was a bad move.
