Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

People are always ragging on Harry for not getting promoted, he never gets any credit for his 7 years of humble servitude. Someone has to be the ensign and unless Janeway goes on a demoting spree then there going to be no new ones made.

And really what does it matter. So she promotes him, it's not like his day to day job is going to change. It's just all dress ups to keep them happy and peppy and feeling like they are part of something bigger than the ship. Harry doesn't need those kind of rewards like Tom does, he understands the futility of an extra pip on top of the same old grind.

More pips means bigger quarters and more replicators rations per week.

Or did Janeway get the same amount of replicator rations as any one of the Equinox 5?

Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

I can't see Janeway getting more replicator rations than the rest of the crew. There is probably a punitive restricted level of rations which the Equinox folk were on and anyone else who was bad, like Tom in 30 Days. But once you are off your punishment you are off restricted rations. Now if they got down to the wire then yes, perhaps some crew would receive greater rations, people who needed to be at the top of their game the most. Though I think they could start ripping up parts of the ship to re sequence if it came to that, useless stuff like that glass thing in Janeway's ready room. And Tom's toys.

It's either even or it's not.

They are after all dirty pinko commies.

Kim put in for a lot of overtime, that should have got him more rations surely?

But that would be money. They don't have money. They work to better themselves.

As for as I know Nog had a good point when he asked, "What does that even mean?"

Which I think it is hilarious that guy was cleaning at Quark's when Voyager started and made Lieutenant before Kim.

Kind of easy when there's a war that's thinning out the ranks...

If she promotes Kim, what's to stop her from making herself an Admiral?

Nothing.

And if Ransom hadn't been an asshole, one of them should have been promoted to fleet captain.

Didn't she basically do that in Endgame?

Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

Running away from a courtmartial into the past is hardly the same as self promotion.

If Janeway had stayed in the future, before too long she would have been planting seedlings in the New Zealand rain Forest while being overseen by some broad with a taser.

But technically they hadn't taken her rank yet.

Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

That would make for some excellent prison fanfic. I want Polly Walker to play the broad with the taser/riding crop.

Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

I'm thinking that the term penal colony must have reinvented itself at some point.

Because guards are anathema to the original concept of just dumping idiots on the other side of the world.

Re: Harry the Genius does what noone else ever considers...

The guards are probably more like special aides, to help the prisoners on the road to bettering themselves. Just stranding people in the Pacific won't better them. You need Federation counselors coming along side, encouraging them to engage in positive life choices.

This is terribly boring though, so the fanfic needs a dark undercurrent.

There were social workers filling out reports on Paris, if we read between the lines about Janeways praise for the convict in the pilot.
