Equinox crew??

After a few episodes of season 6, I basicly stopped watching Voyager, and only cought several episodes here and there.
So, I was wondering, did we ever see the Equinox crew that were taken aboard Voyager again??

They went to the same dark place that Janeway sent the Borg baby.

Re: Equinox crew??

Actually I think they were stripped of rank and spent the rest of the trip scrubbing plasma thingies in the bowels of the ship, under guard the whole time. That's what should have happened, if Janeway folded them into her crew after they knowingly abandoned Voyager to their probable deaths she would be a total sucker.

I really liked Marla Gilmore who seemed to be in love with Ransom. If it was a different sort of show we would have seen more of her.

Re: Equinox crew??

They actually ended up back on Earth 2 years before Voyager. Little did Janeway know there was actually a small wormhole in the darkest recesses of Voyager the entire time! An artifact of the Caretaker's displacement wave. Because they were selfish and traumatized and abandoned their Starfleet principles, they didn't tell anyone, just looked at each other silently, and ran into the wormhole.

Emerging into space in the Alpha quadrant they promptly died.

Followed by a voice over by Rod Serling: "Case in point for those who step on people like rungs on a ladder, or in this case killer space dolphins from another dimension. The mountaintop has a toll, and the pied piper must be paid his due, and the wages of sin is death, the burial plot in... the Twilight Zone."

That was my first thought too. But I like the theory that they all ended up scrubbing out plasma conduits. Though IMO they should have been used as background characters or something. One of the weaknesses of Voyager (as opposed to DS9 or nuBSG) is that they would often create a minor character and then forget that they existed.

Of course there were some major exceptions like Ahni Jetal of the 5th season episode Latent Image:



She was supposedly a very beloved member of the crew who dies because the Doctor decides to operate on Harry Kim instead of her. Where in the world did she come from?

Or think of Lyndsay Ballard:



She was supposedly a member of the Voyager crew that Harry had a big crush on. Lyndsay was killed by the Hirogen (what season did they first appear?) and then later reappeared as a reanimated alien:



We never saw her before the Season 6 episode Ashes to Ashes. It reminds me of Nikki and Paolo, survivors of Ocean Flight 815 who magically appeared in Season 3 of Lost (as if they had been there the whole time).

I'm not saying we should know everything about every minor character, but it was funny when some would pop up in a later season episode and everyone acted as if they were very popular membesr of the crew.

Re: Equinox crew??

"Latent Image" and "Ashes to Ashes" were 2 of Voyager's strongest stories (except for the Kobali being able to cover somewhere in the ballpark of 35,000ly or so in so short a time). If the writers/producers were really good, which obviously they weren't, they would have seeded the show with at least a few extras who have at least decent acting ability, have them be seen in several shots, occasionally speaking with crewmembers, and then have them disappear and come back later to fit in these stories. If we saw Jetal or Ballard and then they vanished and came back, people would have been proclaiming it as excellent writing. Both actresses played their role well enough to make many of us viewers wish we saw them earlier and that they had scenes with Kim, Paris, etc. If they had a few of them, in case any one of them landed a regular role on another tv show/movie and couldn't appear, they'd have more than one to draw from.

Voyager had far more than 150 faces walking its corridors. There was some website that actually showed them all, forget what it was. There was some guy who was an extra on TNG in Season 7 and on Voyager too. Then of course, the most visible extra on Voyager was the elderly black man in a blue uniform who was as much a fixture in the mess hall as Morn was in Quark's... until the Hirogen came! He was last seen right before "The Killing Game" (implication: perhaps he was among the casualties alluded to in that episode).
