The Voyager episode flowchart!

This gave me a laugh. Made by long-banned timeliner James Dixon back in '97. It's pretty accurate!

You need to download and unzip the textfile. Unfortunately TBBS mucks up the formatting so I can't just post it.

The Official/Authorized/Canon VOYAGER EPISODE FLOWCHART (just like the writers use!)

Re: The Voyager episode flowchart!

Though the spacing is slightly different it's really short and it doesn't much matter to read it this way..

Don't sue me Mr. Dixon, kthxbye.

______________________________________________

Well, here's something to chew on... Though it needs updating for the 7
of 9 era...

The Official/Authorized/Canon*
VOYAGER EPISODE FLOWCHART
(Just like the writers use!)


START-->The Voyager is threatened by
aliens from a ship or planet...
|
Basic plot stolen from TOS If too weak, start concurrent
or TNG, emphasis upon flashy-->plot "B" which may be stolen
FX, not on characters or from some popular sci-fi
credibility... "formula" film...
| |
Time wasted in holodeck: either Paris' bar, Janeway's
holonovel, or Kim's yuppie retreat (Purpose: to give
the illusion that the characters are being developed)...
|
SELECT ONE OR MORE (REPEAT WHEN NEEDED):
1. Janeway tries to act tough...
2. Chakotay talks to his spirit guide or dead dad...
3. Paris acts cocky and/or insubordinate...
4. Kim gets in trouble Chekov-style...
5. B'Ellana struggles with her Klingon/Human heritage and/or the
ship's engines...
6. Holo-Doc takes Data-like strives toward Humanity (leaves sickbay,
toys with a name, etc.) while acting like Dr. McCoy (grumpy,
"I'm a doctor, not a___" etc.)...
7. Tuvok tries to act like Spock (or tries to out-Spock Spock)...
8. Neelix adds comic relief ("Mr. Vulcan,..." food, etc.)...
9. Kes acts cute/naive and/or uses some new wonder power...
| |
| Kazons, Vidiians or some other Voyager damaged: bridge
| baddie attacks Voyager: more time-->panels inexplicably explode,
| wasted on FX... smoke, shields fail, etc...
| | |
| Character/s bark/s out------------->Optional: another shuttle
| sophisticated-sounding<-------------is lost...
|->TECHnobabble Dialog
NO incorporating "plasma"------------->Problem solved:
LIMIT and/or some made-up <-------------Characters act like they
fantasy particle... know what's going on...
| |
Guest star character dies |
(suicide, sacrifice, etc.) OR |
in an attempt to add meaning--> Voyager or regular character
to an otherwise meaningless in danger is saved from doom...
episode... |________________________________|
|
Episode ends abruptly
as though the writers
don't know how to end END
it conclusively...
