Does Anybody Like Harry?

As a child growing up in the 90s, Harry was actually my favorite character on Voyager. He was the youngest of the main cast and he was wildly optimistic, so I definitely related to him the most at the time. It was only after I got older and saw the series again did I begin to like other characters more. Did any of you have similar experiences?

Harry was always a very "meh" character I found--alrightish but nothing special. I liked what they tried to do, but I always thought that they never really made enough of the rookie aspect.

I LOVE HARRY.

He is cute, earnest, not full of himself like Paris, loyal. I always liked Harry just fine.

Seconded.

Do I give him crap anyway? Oh, yes.

But, seriously... I know the feeling of not being promoted. Harry was living my life, man.

Re: Does Anybody Like Harry?

Yeah, I like Harry all right. He reminds me of myself when I was a teenager. Such a do-the-right-thing nice guy, but I wanted to be more like Tom Paris.

Re: Does Anybody Like Harry?

I would also like to say that I like him 10,000 times better than Paris.

He should have ended up with BOTH Delaney sisters.

Re: Does Anybody Like Harry?

Humans live into their second century sometimes (probably) so even though I was about the same age as Harry when the show started, working hard and paying for a roof above my head, the writers were probably moving in the right direction when it became evident that they thought that they were still producing scripts for Wesley.

I despise him.

Very plain and boring looking.

I don't remember anything about his personality, though.

Wait, did he have one?

Harry... or Paris? Bit of a Harry Hill moment (which admittedly won't mean much to anyone outside UK)

I'd agree with that assessment.

Where you around for my "Karry Him" thread?

His mother knew he was going to be such a loser that she used subliminal programming, a spoonerism, to dupe those around him into being his unwitting crutches and pick up his slack.

Kim remembers being born, so he must remember the look of disappointment on his mothers face.

Re: Does Anybody Like Harry?

I found him bland and inoffensive.

BUT he was an ensign for seven years for a very good reason: He was hopeless. More naive than... anyone. Ever. Watch "Nightengale" and compare his pitiful attempt at command to anyone else's. Third-year-cadet Kirk in STXI? Red Squad in "The Valiant"? Beverlump in "Descent"?

He just hasn't got what it takes. I hope the USS Rhode Island in the alternate/original future of "Endgame" was never given anything important to do. For the galaxy's sake.

Oh wait... it was! It was sent to stop Admiral Janeway from changing history! And... Harry failed again!!!
