In any-case either Holographic rapey HoloRiker would have been grazing against the boobs of the Voyager cast members... Unless one of the Hirogen decided to play the part of Riker, but how authentically would that portrayal of William T Riker have been?
Let's see.. swagger. Barking. Leering. Hirogen wouldn't have to work hard to get into the role.

As Deputy Fuhrer, I will say the Hirogen had excellent taste in WWII uniforms.

Re: What If: Captain Riker of the USS Voyager

Just because fate is a fickle #####, I think that every Starship ever commissioned after the discoveriy of Time travel has had a full stock of Nazi era Uniforms for at least half their crew vacuum sealed in storage below deck. It's the most horrible place where they can happen to be trapped, in early 1940s Germany, so why not be ready and prepared for it? Yes sure they have replicators, but #### it, like the replicators are guaranteed to still be working as their flaming star ship is hurtling towards the Reichstag and the German War machine is cocking a million rifles wondering "What the hell is that?"

Can you imagine a regularily scheduled "Timelost in Nazi Germany" Emergency Drill?

Where everyone has to man battlestations while changing into period dress?

Who'd be in charge of that?

Neelix or Tuvok?

Maybe they were half way through one of these drills which the Hirogen attacked in between Retrospect and the Killing Game?

Re: What If: Captain Riker of the USS Voyager

Imagine Riker as captain for three or four years. And then they finally make contact with the Alpha Quadrant. Who appears on-screen?


...William Riker!


The camera pans back to our captain on the bridge, who reaches up and peels off his sideburns, revealing himself to be the Maquis renegade Thomas Riker all along!!



Yep, Voyager was definitely better of without Riker.

Love for Riker in a show sometimes derided as "TNG Lite"?

Surely, you can't be serious!

Re: What If: Captain Riker of the USS Voyager

The Romulans never would have allowed Riker to take command.

In Eye of the Needle, 2351, they learnt that they were safe for the next 20 years so long as a lot of moving pieces they had a vague idea about kept moving towards Janeway's Voyager being Lost in the Delta Quadrant.

Predestined invulnerability.

Janeway spoke openly that the Romluan Empire was strong and intact, and to them that must likely be something worth protecting, and probably why in Voy: Inside Man that Barclay said that the Romulans had always been interested in Voyager.

HARKINS: It wasn't the Borg, Reg.
BARCLAY: Then it was the Romulans. They're using a cloaked ship. They've been curious about Voyager for years.
HARKINS: That is enough.
Oddly enough it was the Cardassians who used this information to their advantage to send a cloaked ship to the Delta Quadrant and steal Caretaker technology, which didn't seem to help them at all win the Dominion War.

Fat Riker in a speedo chasing Neelix on the holodeck. We might have found a universe where C7 makes sense.

If not for VOYAGER, we'd never have had the amazingly amazing 2 parter (!!!) episode: FUTURE'S END. I just love it, so much, that whatever else VOYAGER had on offer or did to get ratings is fine with me. Jonathan Frakes even made a guest appearance, once! Not too shabby ...

If the programmer says that the holobeach on display is a nude beach, do the crewmen have to comply?

Henry Starling took it easy on Janeway because he wanted to tap that.

"Captain Riker" would have been dead by the second act.

Re: What If: Captain Riker of the USS Voyager

I am planning to holo my flab away.

Last night after watching all three GoT's from this season I dreamt I was wandering around a GoT scene completely nude with zero embarrassment and my stomach was completely flat which I noted in the dream with a certain amount of approval. So this holo nudity with built in photoshop is something I've already test run and it is awesome.
