Re: When did voyager go wrong?

Body paint head to toe seems annoying.

Don't you probably mean that you want a not-dead/still-living John Candy in your closet?

Do you think Andy Kaufman faked his death?

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

In my fantasy planet not only is John Candy still alive and in my closet but he wants to be in my closet very very badly.

The thing with faking your own death is it is boring if you don't leave breadcrumbs for the press to frenzy over, just a couple every few years. So if someone hasn't done this I think they have not faked their own death. Jim Morrison is definitely dead as is Andy Kaufman but Bruce Lee may very well be in South America.

So Brandon kicked down the pearly gates screaming "where's my daddy?" only to discover his kung fu master pappy is still down on Earth.

What a stinker.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

I bet he's real pissed that he never got anywhere near the mystique by dying as Bruce did by "dying".

A friend, who is stupid, once told me that Bruce died trying to punch faster than the speed of light.

It was the speed of thought, so kind of a dribble.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

HA!

Where did Voyager go Wrong?

The kept inventing new shitty aliens when they should have just be trying to get the ones which had already been created right.

Voyager gave us a hundred or so new species?

5 or 6 of them are worth talking about.

And when it gets down to it, of these 5 or 6 villainous species, who do the producers chose as their dread big bad?

The Borg.

Handmedowns from TNG.

It's like they gave up.

Lazy shits.

We don't need to create something awesome, when we can just rape the past for credibility.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

You might as well say that Humans are Hand me down from TOS as well.

It's 4 days to Qo'noS from Earth, which means it's practically the same planet.

That was the shape of the Alpha Quadrant.

Voyager was set some place alien.

So unimaginably far away that it would take a massive coincidence small universe syndrome fluke for Janeway to bump into anything the slightest bit familiar.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

But we already knew the Borg were in the DQ from TNG and we already know the Borg are expanding rapidly every single day as their imperative towards perfection so it seems to me that not having Borg be part of an epic journey across the DQ would be more stupid than having them there.

Imagine if we never saw them, everyone would be bitching about how VOY failed by not even having the villains TNG had already told us would be there! What was the point of having a whole series set in the DQ and then not even having the Borg, those absolutely premiere villains that assimilated Picard and Q talked about?! All these "what is wrong with VOY" threads would have smug enraged tomes about how there were no Borg instead of smug enraged tomes about how there were Borg.

You know this happens in fandom too, I can think of one J/C writer who's demise is uncertain and who left behind a niece to care for her legacy of fan fiction. (She actually wrote a Chakotay gets pregnant with Janeway's baby story.) She was gone before my time in the fandom, but her name still comes up.

Mostly these are not the BNF's of the fandom (Big Name Fan), but rather the 'wannabes". The only BNF in J/C that we are pretty sure died is Dakota.

I do know of one or two (or maybe more, who knows with all the sock puppets) that have tried to commit cyber subside. Which is interesting because you trash your alter ego so much you might as well be dead, but can still walk around, and if you want you can become someone else too.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

OMG Brit. I feel like I have missed out on something totally awesome. I should have spent the 2000's building up a fan following and then "died" and then watched my mystique rise. The really sad thing is I'm not even kidding.
