Re: Threshold

There is a hole in your mind.

Slave wages is an everyday term for being paid less than minimum wage, or even minimum wage.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...=slave%20wages

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wage_slavery

It's a very common term, I'm amazed you've walked through life without hearing before now.

No more ignorance for you, you're welcome.

Meanwhile in SO CALLED civilized societies where slavery is legal (Ancient Rome, 19th century America), there is a legal code for the fair treatment of slaves and the legal rights of slaves, similar to the legal rights of animals today to be treated ethically, so yes slaves in certain positions in a dynamic, can have had allowances which equates to a version of income, which is how slaves where allowed to buy their own freedom or live a relatively nice life despite being owned if they were allowed to manage their finances right.

Again there is the difference between a slave who is a teacher or a butler, who might get an allowance, and a slave who digs in a mine til he dies quickly of old age or disease.

I thought Dear doctor was about two completely different species evolving on the same planet, like a horse is not a human being but we are both on the same planet and one of us is top dog. The genetic fuck up that they thought was a plague which was killing off the top dog species was just some random shitty thing that happened. Dar Doctor was about social evolution more so than genetic evolution that the bitch (following the canine metaphor, that is the correct word.) race would be a slave class until the other died out.
Yes, but IIRC, the doctor was applying destiny to evolution, which is complete nonsense. Evolution doesn't plan or see into the future.

Re: Threshold

Here's 8 likely outcomes of that situation while there were still several variables and both species had a foreseeable future.

1. Mutually satisfactory coexistence.

2. Mutually dissatisfactory coexistence.

3. Segregation (like we have countries.)

4. Mutual destruction.

5. Domination of one over the other.

6. Sole survival of only one species.

7. Emigration off planet for one or both species the same new world.

8. Emigration off planet for one or both species to different new worlds.

...

If one of those species is going to die out in a couple generations, you're left with these below, even though 7 and 8 are more about something to do after they have mastery of the planet...

4. Mutual destruction.

6. Sole survival of only one species.

7. Emigration off planet for one or both species the same new world.

8. Emigration off planet for one or both species to different new worlds.

Re: Threshold

Anyone want to speculate on when Janeway/Paris took place? When he was a monster and she human? Both monsters? Both salamanders? One salamander, one monster?

Enjoy the psychological scarring this question has brought you.

Re: Threshold

If the sex happened on the shuttle... There are security recordings of the sex act at best and universal translation audio logs at least.

Janeway is a porn star on Voyager.

Re: Threshold

As far as universal translation audio logs are concerned, would there be a privacy setting for sexual encounters, that it turns off as soon as bare genitals meet air, so that the poor buggers can't even talk dirty or give directions or request a changes in speed... Or is it more of an autodelete...

Was Kes, Neelix and the Kazon all speaking the same language? Did the DQ have Universal Translators before Voyager showed up?

Could you imagine the paper work you'd have to sign to allow the universal translator to keep your sex talk and grunts on the record FOR SCIENCE!
