Chakotay and Janeway... That's all I have to say.




And they lived happily ever after...

Great picture! Really nice and impressive photoshopping.

Now why do my own Photoshopped pictures never come up to that standard?

I like the scenario with the tents or whatever it is in the background. If I ever should come up with some "marriage scenario" for those two in some story, I would use the scenario on this picture for the story.

Re: Opinions on Chakotay & Seven

Aww. Thanks Unimatrix and Lynx!

I am not the biggest wedding pic fan myself, but a wedding pic(s) was requested from me and some others last month on another board. First I was like "naaah; I ain't gonna do it", but once I found the original pic I used in this one, I decided to give it a try. I liked the idea of Kathryn dressing up to Chakotay's tradition and vice versa.

Would you mind if I compressed it to use it as an avatar on here? I was very for the Chakotay/Janeway pair... but the show had different ideas.

It's amazing the amount of J/C fan fic is out there!

The claim has been made that Seven is ready for a serious relationship in Endgame and that she has an "equal" relationship with her boy friend. My point is that she isn't all that mature. She's still not behaving the way a mature crew member would (reporting the admiral's attempt to manipulate her to the captain). Thanks, Exodus, for pointing out the other times she has behaved this way in the past. She really hasn't progressed much, has she? My other point is that she's not treating Chakotay as an equal (failing to discuss her fears with him before making a unilateral decision). She doesn't say she thinks they should break up--it's a done deal.
It isn't about progression, it's about having a personality pattern. Everybody in life has one, that includes you, me and everyone we know as well as every single character you've ever seen on Star Trek and many other shows as well. It's what people rant about here when they say "being true to character". The biggest complaint about Voyager is lack of continuinty, well here it is.

The ironic part is, we're all here debating a relationship on Star Trek.
Who are any of us to judge someone else on what's mature?
I'm just surprised that nobody has once considered the Seven spent her whole life hurting people as a Borg, maybe just maybe being mature is taking precautions to not willingly hurt anybody again if you can posably help it. I think she has enough regret to live with.

A show by Ron Moore that only lasted a couple of seasons.

Just because cat suits are a part of "Science Fiction" forever, still doesn't make it right. As Teya, has been so quick to point out when a generalization is used that doesn't fit her particular view point, not all women are alike and there are very few of us that would be comfortable let alone look ok in one.
Actually I tend to point out generalizations even when I agree with them. I just get irritated when one group tries to claim that theirs is the one, true and only viewpoint.

That's an interesting perspective, though. I've never thought of costumes as something that I relate to, as in "could I wear that?" I tend to look at them and wonder, "how did they make that?"

I live and work in academia where the "I, me, my" of writing is frowned upon and what a person writes is assumed to be his/her opinion and reality. I had no idea that using the word "reality" would in some way mean that no one else could think differently (I didn't imagine I had that much power). Forgive me. Where I say "reality," please put "my" in front of it.
Granted, it's been decades since I took a lit class, but IIRC, there's a difference between presenting an opinion and saying, "the reality is" or "the truth is." The latter two are not declaring an opinion, they are declaring *fact*. And no matter how much you might wish it to be true, your opinion is not fact just because you say it is.

And, for good measure, since Seven never called him boyfriend, whenever I say boyfriend, add a space--boy friend. Better?
Not even necessary.

When your friends jumped on that as further proof that Seven and/or C/7ers (me) were being adolescent, I simply pointed out that *you* were the one throwing that out there--not me, not the character.

However, I do wish that they had taken her out of the provocative clothing. It might be a "tradition" in scifi (and Trek), but I think its time has passed, and good riddance.
I really suggest you not go see the new film. Between the catsuits on the Kelvin and the miniskirts on the Enterprise...

Well, he's a man not boy, and a lover not a friend, so in all honesty, Chakotay is her manlover.

(Maybe she just likes to watch?)

Put the ball gag and Karma Sutra away, Guy. It's not that type of party.

My vote: Is it even worth feeling bothered about considering how much the show sucked?

It's like asking, "Who's your favorite former member of the Bush administration?"

I will not own season seven because of the sexual relations with that man, Mr. Chakotay.
