Make up your mind.

Are you a necrophile?

Re: why was ensign kim not promoted at all in 7 years?

No. But the only reason given for why she would suddenly have no crew is the suggestion that Harry killed her. The only reason I could squeeze out of it.

Re: why was ensign kim not promoted at all in 7 years?

What I thought I was talking about is that if she was in the Alpha Quadrant, and she was still promoting none of her crew, then everyone would request to transfer to a different ship which they could actually find a promotion and no one would request to transfer onto her ship.

Go back.

It's pretty obvious, and mostly your idea.

Nah, even lack of promotions would still get people wanting to transfer over. If you were Chief Operations Officer for a year, promotion or not, that looks good on a resume.

Re: why was ensign kim not promoted at all in 7 years?

Well okay, I assumed the no crew comment was a reply to the kill Janeway comment.

Anyway, she might end up with more transfers than Picard and a reputation but the holes would be filled.

Re: why was ensign kim not promoted at all in 7 years?

Which Janeway?

Hypothetical Janeway who never got taken by Caretaker?

Admrial Janeway in an office on Earth.

Admiral Janeway who got another ship after her stint in an office on Earth?

I thought it was fairly obvious she's referring to a hypothetical Janeway who never got abducted by the Caretaker.

Except for the being dead comment which taps the novel continuity which is proCaretaker.

Teacake is in love.

She sees the best possible Janeway available from second to second, no matter how hard she has to squint to see through time at the prime contender from the infinite assemblage of Kross khronal Kathys from all the pancaked mirror universes either side of this one.

I'd like Janeway a lot more if she just openly admitted she was evil. Honest dictators are always much more likable than closet tyrants.

If Janeway was a dictator teacake could SOOO be her propaganda minister.
