Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

I just watched this episode for the first time today and thought "maybe I'll log on to the Voyager forum to see what discussion there may have been." Woah, I wasn't expecting this thread! Obviously, years later, the debate continues. As for myself, I don't believe there is one right answer. It's a moral dilemma that I'm glad I didn't have to participate in. I can really see the arguments both ways.

Indeed! Janeway was luck the combination of the new entity was from Tuvok and Neelix. Neelix had no family beyond the Voyager crew, and Tuvok's wife and children would have at least given her decision, to keep Tuvix whole, the blessing of "Yes, a logical decision".

But imagine if the combined creature was of Tom Paris and Naomi Wildman? Janeway would had had to continue working with Samantha Wildman, and eventually have to meet and work with Admiral Paris, upon her return to UFP space, and attempt to explain her decision to Greskrendtregk (Naomi's father).

Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

And someone would have implored Janeway to think of the children during that episode!

But really, aren't you supposed to put children first? If Paromi refused to sacrifice him/herself for Naomi's sake he/she would be a real jerkface.

Didn't you see the two year old crying that she lost her teddy bear?

Kes, I guess.

Whenever one of Janeway's girls gets the sniffles people die. Not even Tom could motivate Janeway like Seven, Kes, or B'Lanna.

Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

So Kes dumps Neelix when she's almost three, but the poor girl is on a ticking clock that after she hits three, a biological clock is going to dong (pun, totally intended.) and the Ocampan is going to need to find a bloke unless she's going to pass on motherhood.

On Friends, the Lesbians called Ross "Bobo The Sperm Guy."

Is Neelix excluded to service her becuase of their failed relationship?

Or at the top of the list to service her because of their successful relationship?

But, that year's like a decade to her. Neelix was stupid to be involved with someone whose psychological development should work like a hyper-caffeinated squirrel on an amphetamine high. For Kes, yesterday really is like so last year.

Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

What you are saying is ludicrous. The convergence of Tom Paris and Naomi Wildman would be a hermaphrodite and otherwise unusual. Tuvix wasn't really out of the ordinary which makes Janeway's decision all the more stupifying.

Okay, same scenario, but Samantha and Tom as the new entity.

Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

Where can I sign up for this.. maybe I can get just the bottom half of my body welded into a super multiple appendage blend 43 by only transporting that half with some equally adventurous male's bottom half. Actually this sounds painful. But I do so think that somewhere there is a cult of body modders using the transporter to do really cool stuff.
