Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

SO his DNA is a rogue agent that demanded his return but the demanders are also lying?

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

Chakotay was raised on a planet on the edge of Cardassian space where his people had settled generations ago to live a traditional lifestyle.

The events outlined in "Tattoo" are from a trip to Earth he made with his father to locate the Indians of their tribe who still (implausibly) live in the rainforest, unseen by human eyes. Oh, and they have cranial ridges.

And if they had used the Kirok background, I wouldn't have watched Voyager past that episode. I might have even shot my TV.

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

The open submission policy brought in a lot of great sophisticated stories that had nothing to do with anyone specifically on staff in particular. It was a high concept show and that is not Moore's bread and butter. He wasn't a good fit for a TNG clone. When Menosky and Shankar left, the show went south and Moore's episodes sucked though he does have style but no real substance. He writes memorable characters but that is not where TPTB wanted and were headed. It was Braga's show and lead and he lead it into a nebulous ambiguous mess like he is. Moore is a light weight stud, hideously clever, yes but not smarter or better than Braga who was ironically though not the best person to run the show. In that particular regard, Moore was better but more mediocre so.. his hyper inflated ego had to be burst.

Portlandia would never be so kind to Voyager as it was to BSG.

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

I don't give a shit what Moore thinks.

His runs on TNG and DS9 were seriously overrated and BSG had characters that were so screwed up that I just quit caring. It was like having a bunch of whiny Anakin Skywalker's.

If Anikan met himself, he's totally the sort of guy who woul make out with him(self).

I liked that they were screwed up. Kara was so horribly familiar.. and most people were dead wrong most of the time.

I once gave this a lot of thought, and decided that the most likable characters (in terms of integrity and all that) were Helo, and Doc. Which is kind of funny since they're about 8th or 9th down the chain of actors.

I worshiped Roslin.

I am so predictable.

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

I'm watch the actress underneath Ros on Major Crimes and I'm not sure is she knows how to act.

She just gives a lot of speeches.

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

I thought the scenes with a chemo-bald Roslin in bed with Adama were the single most romantic thing I've ever seen on a screen.

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

And when the crew is in Adamas quarters talking about very important things, and she just casually walks into the conversation only wearing her bathrobe, straight out of his bedroom... RESULT!

The looks on their faces!

How long has thing been going on?

Did you know?

No I didn't know, how the hell would I know?

Dude? How are we talking telepathically?

Re: Ron D. Moore about VOY

He loved her.

He didn't care.

It was pure.

It was lovely.
