Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Keiko being unhappy and difficult was pretty good writing I thought. It was a pretty realistic conflict, with Keiko and Miles having different plans for what they wanted to do and where they wanted to live. There was no easy solution, and the show showed that. It did sometimes get difficult to understand why she didn't just leave him. Love and family, I know, but at times it didn't seem like Miles was trying very hard on his part.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

She always loved Miles, she just didn't like being married to his job.

If it was me though exactly 2 minutes after the Dominion war started I would have grabbed the kid and been on a flight back to earth.

For sure.

Man I couldn't stand her.

Julian was far more fetching, that's why

I'm not going to argue with that! I've always had a massive crush on Julian. I ship him with Garek and Miles both. I think Miles/Julian is a fairly obscure fandom.

I often felt bad for both Miles and Keiko, they so often seemed unhappy with each other, and often neither one of them was wrong, they just wanted different things.

Keiko was not deranged. She was a botanist stuck on a space station married to pleasant enough man who preferred playing games with his boy friend to spending time with her. She was also a civilian raising a child in what rapidly became a war zone, and the only reason she was in that war zone was her husband's job. Unlike a lot of Trek folk she exhibited the same stress you or I would have in that situation.
Who'd really want to live in a Space Station raising children?

And who would want to be married to Miles anyway, he's not that great a catch.

I can't understand the hate for Keiko it wasn't like O'Brien was that nice to her. Maybe she was a whinger but she had a right to be.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Favourite couple (other than Anakin and Padme)? Has anyone said Charlie Evans and Yeoman Rand yet?

I thought Padme died of a 'broken heart' (which I thought was pathetic). If Anakin killed her then that's much better in my book (best of bad options I mean).

Still the theme is the same Anakin killed Padme
Charlie Evans disappeared Rand.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Annie was a smooth talker, was he not? I'm of the mind to use some of his lines on my next conquest. How to choose, when every word out of his mouth is pure gold? "I hate sand. It's course and it gets everwhere. Not like you. You're everything soft ... and smooth." Dude ... DUDE!!! ... how many hotties have been hit on with that little number, I wonder? And have it used to such effect?!

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I would love to be told I am better than sand! Why I would just swoon and fall into the sand-hater's arms!

Me. A person like me. Better than sand

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

That really is something, though: Annie's nuts had yet to drop and already, The Force is guiding him to hit on Padme - the 14 year old elected queen of all she surveyed! Lucky for her, both of them were still, like ... underaged ... otherwise it would've caused a commotion - a scandal - and Senator Palpatine would've had no choice but to put her political ambitions on ice! Wow ... George Lucas went down some dark roads, in the STAR WARS prequels. Did he not?

Ouch!!! ... Very ouch. Miles ain't no Orlando Bloom, that's true, but ... he's solid, dependable and trustworthy. If that doesn't cry out "Marriage Material," I don't know what else does! And besides, it was always comforting seeing him at the transporter controls, on TNG. I would've never begrudged him a bride of his choosing ...
