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 ...
And Miles never cheated unlike (perhaps) Orlando Bloom. I don't think Miles is a bad guy but if its based purely on looks you've got to give it to Keiko over Miles.
Miles promised Keiko the stars and all she got was a dangerous, mouldy Space Station and years of separation (though that might have been a good thing for the marriage).

You all are forgetting the fact that Keiko was nuts well before their marriage. Watch "Data's Day" if you need a memory refresh. Unrestrained, irrational, unprovoked Keiko-rage on display through the bulk of the episode, followed by mournful, funerary-atmosphere Keiko-coordinated wedding at the end.

Not at all. Keiko, as written in that episode, would just be considered a minor Bridezilla today.

I have a fondess for Quark/Odo (in a hate-turns-to-passion theme), Paris/Kim (The Chute stands out in that respect) and Reed/Trip. They aren't as obvious as the others, but I think you can view them all with slash goggles I think some people like Riker/Picard too, but it's not one of my favourites.
I love the idea of Reed/Trip, but Archer/Trip is, as you say, a much more obvious pairing. Reed, I fear, is far too repressed to give any serious consideration in slash pairings. I imagine Archer and Trip, on the other hand, chilling in the captain's quarters, maybe watching some water polo, and one thing leads to another...

Reed and Hayes. It's everything perfect and fine in the world.

Orlando Bloom? Since when was he a measuring stick for husbands?

It makes me think of Spartacus where everyone but Charleston Heston was in one the gay subtext in some of the scenes.
I think you mean Ben-Hur, not Spartacus.

(Sorry. I'm a compulsive editor.)

Also, elsewhere in this thread, the "fair maiden" bit with Sulu and Uhura is from "The Naked Time," not "Mirror, Mirror."

My work here is done. You may now return to your regularly schedule thread . . . .

You're right it is Ben Hur. I've even seen Ben Hur, but maybe not the old Spartacus movie.
