Re: Lt. Kim

There is enough wiggle room that what looked like a Vulcan woman could just be a Vulcanoid woman. That's how I choose to interpret that situation too. But it was still clumsy of the writers.
I liked Vorik's pon farr story, I just hate the holodeck solution. It's such an easy fix that going forward solves any pon farr story. I also think there's supposed to be a telepathic component to pon farr, or else couldn't they just pon farr themselves? It's about more than release, and a holodeck simulation is just one big elaborate sex toy in that situation.

Re: Lt. Kim

What always bugged me about that story was that even the Doctor, who was programmed with all of the Federation's medical knowledge, didn't know about the Pon Farr. I get the whole cultural taboo "we don't talk about this" thing, but it stretches credibilty that a race as prominent as the Vulcans could keep something so big so much of a secret that nobody has heard of it.

You need to watch the episode again.

Vulcan lawyers on behalf of the Vulcan Government could have redacted the information from a beta test of his program.

Re: Lt. Kim

Yeah, I'm mixing that up with Tuvok's pon farr.
Vorik's story with B'lanna was pretty good now that you jogged my memory. Paris's unhelpfulness aside.

I just had a mental image of a gardener going out to do the weeding and being greeted by a chorus of "baaa" from the wooly, mammalian veggies...

Re: Lt. Kim

There was an episode of Lexx where a (homosexual?) cannibal had a similar fantasy where he was growing endless fields of sexy beefcake, where their heads (and maybe their bare bare naked shaved oiled chests?) were popping out of the soil and he was watering them with a watering can.

This takes playing with your food to entirely different levels.

(Only in Germany.)

Originally it was supposed to be Tuvok's Pon farr in Bloodfever, but Rus put his foot down and insisted the Tuvok would never under any circumstances cheat on his wife.

Re: Lt. Kim

The Space Channel here (in Canada) showed Lexx. I watched a few minutes, got thoroughly disgusted, and tried very hard to avoid any sight or sound of it ever again.

Re: Lt. Kim

It's a bit rough in places, but after the miniseries movies are finished, once the actual ongoing series starts, I'd say it's as good and sometimes better than Farscape. This is because they both developed their story and created a larger plot that tied the seasons together, that watching week to week mattered because "stuff" was always happening that followed through.

Lexx is really wonderfully bizarre.

I'm watching Lexx now, got a bit distracted but getting back to it. It's a trip.

Re: Lt. Kim

You feel sorry for Stanley, thinking that he's not awful, and should be able to get his leg over at least once, but then you see that thing he does with his face before he kisses someone.

As creepy as that over puckered face he pulls might be, only even creepier people kiss with their eyes open.
