Fresh eyes on VOY

So I'm rewatching VOY with a 9 and 10 year old. It's their first Star Trek. They have seen every possible permutation of Star Wars multiple times. Some of the comments have been hilarious. We are in season 2.

10 year old: Is Chakotay a Vulcan?

Me: No.. he's a human. Why do you ask?

10 year old: Because he never shows any emotions.



(Every single time I remember this exchange I burst out laughing)

9 year old: I used to think I was good at science but these people are REALLY good. I can't understand anything they are talking about!

Repeated exclamations from both of them after prolonged technobabble scene: Wow, these people are really smart!

During one of Neelix's jealousy scenes: Neelix is in looooove.. it's disgusting. I hope there is no kissing in this.

10 year old: This is different than Star Wars. This is more about problem solving and mysteries.

Anyway I will update this thread with any Voyager observations that crack me up over the coming months.

This is perfection.

Chakotay the Vulcan. Now I have a vision of him with pointed ears.

This thread is a great idea. Hope you keep up with it.

On the Doctor Who board after each new episode there is a thread titled "What did the Kids and the 'not we' think?" and we share the youngest and the most casual fan's reactions. It can get pretty funny at times.

Re: Fresh eyes on VOY

when you think about it they all seem Vulcan when you compare emotions to those shown in OITNB, Cakes.

When I first watched "Hope and Fear" I thought Janeway's line was "Where is our tourist now?" (oops) She said the alien's name.
