Why was Harry Kim never promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade by Janeway while he was in the DQ? Couldn't she have issued a field promotion or something? I know she messed around with Tom Paris' rank a few times.
We could theorize that her promotions/demotions during their time in the DQ weren't worth the paper they were printed on, without the signed authorization in triplicate from people above her in Starfleet Command (which for obvious reasons she could not get). Ultimately the few times she kicked Paris in the butt he did always end up reverting to his original rank eventually, probably because she couldn't really demote him. So maybe she just figured it wasn't worth the hassle trying to promote Kim, even in a semi-temporary sense, because she knew a temporary promotion might not 'stick' when they got home anyway.

And Picard made Wesley a full Ensign without him even attending the Academy.
Anything to get into Beverly's pants.

Seriously, I've always thought Wesley being given full Ensign was just plain dumb. It was the kind of thing Picard shouldn't have even had the authority to do (and if he did seek authority from his superiors for give Wes rank, then Wes shouldn't have been busted back to Cadet and sent to the academy). Sure, making Wesley an acting Ensign is easy, that's as simple as just giving an order and then telling his mommy to sew him some special jim-jams. But an official promotion into the full chain-of-command, even a 'field' promotion, would need to be done by-the-book.

I don't care how smart Wesley is, he needs experience. Not just on a ship, at being alive.

I'm sure Robin Lefler could have helped him out with that.

MY GOD I AM SO BEAUTIFUL



It's a good thing this tech did not exist on Voyager otherwise the entire crew would be falling over themselves to breed with Janeway. Her genes have a divinely transforming effect!!

And what do you think the non-holographic life forms aboard Voyager were?

As I recall, the alien in that episode used telepathy to lure the crew to their deaths by making them see what they most wanted to. Pitcher plants lure insects to their deaths by making them think they were going to have the most wonderful meal imaginable. What the insects didn't know was that they themselves were about to be the meal.

Re: Lt. Kim

Perhaps name her after a tea or cake?

I was looking for a suitable image for another round morphing, and I found this...



Well I just peed my pants, so I'm going quit morphing and do laundry instead.

Edit! Edit! Edit! I didn't notice that! Eek!
