The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

The best characters on Voyager. If Star Trek was real and I was Reginald Barclay, I would hang out with them on the holodeck.

(Reg Barclay is my on screen equivalent. After an annoying day at work we both like to switch on our entertainment devices and immerse ourselves in Voyager)

It is such a shame that those three only got one episode and a couple of cameos after. They are the most realistic characters on that ship.

The episode is 'Good Shepherd'. I dont remember their names unfortuantely. One is a Bajoran female, another hides down in the plasma room on deck 15.

I really liked that episode, it gave a completely different view of life on Voyager.

Re: The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

By the end of that episode, they had all gotten over whatever issues they had, so I'm thinking that they wouldn't be the interesting characters you think they would be.

Besides, we only saw them for one episode. I'd hardly say that wasn't enough to say they were really all that realistic.

I would hardly say so too.

Their personalities are so different from the regulation Star Fleet 'yes sir tetrionic fields down to 47% sir'. It was a welcome change, even if it was only for one ep

The nerd in particular stuck it to Janeway. Big

Re: The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

Ah yes, Tal Celes, Billy Telfer and Mortimer Harren. The three misfits that Janeway found in her flock.

I remember this episode and still quite like it. Too bad we never saw anything further on how things went after that.

Never saw if Mortimer was finally dragged up from the bilges, or if Celes and Telfer developed anything beyond their friendship.

And we never did find out anything further about those dark matter worms. Pity.

Re: The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

Celes was in the haunting of Deck 12.

it was uncharacteristic of the producers to reuse an actress, and there was no reason or proof to believe in the episode that she had ever been in the show before... "Sigh".

Oh, I forgot about that one. Thanks, Guy!

Too bad they couldn't have worked in something from Good Shepherd into Haunting of Deck Twelve.

Re: The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

I was pissed that she never made it back for another episode of Sliders.

The female version of Quinn Mallory who had sex with the male version of herself when he slid in from a Parallel Earth... Oh, and she was evil.

Evil is so hot.

Oh my.

63 episodes of JAG.

May god have mercy on her soul.

Yet another example of wasted potential on this show.

The writers could have easily created recurring background characters who had small stories all on their own. I mean, it's not like the ship's crew was rotating out every six months or something.

The whole idea that you can get the same background characters for each season is ridiculous, too. NCIS has had the same woman sitting at the same computerless desk pretending to type (probably the same document) for the past five years. If NCIS can do that, Voyager could have had the same extras, too.

Re: The Nerd, the Klutz and the Germophobe

Ayala was in a hundred and 13 episodes.

Is there a dollar difference between an extra they find out he front of the lot who Berman tells to get onto the back of his pickup truck before work, and some one like Stephen Pisan who was unnamed crewman for 19 episodes, which probably meant that he was tecnically as part of the guestcast, like Hogan or Sam Wildman, just without lines.

Good Shepard is one of the best episodes in my opinion.
