    ONE MOVIE.

    Also, blonde.

    JFTR I have never hated Neelix. Or even disliked him. I thought the acting was good and the character fairly fleshed out and well used.

    I Think, at the time, I wanted David and Saavik to run away together and make babies.

    Of course, back then I had no idea that she was carrying Spock's baby by the time Doc Brown killed David.

    So, if he had survived, would that mean that a Kirk would be raising a Spockling had those two crazy kids made the obvious love connection?

    You are a sick man.

    David would have been her beach bum phase and she would have gotten over him looooong before he'd gotten over her.

    I was 10.

    I had believed that the two pretty people always lived happily ever after in movies.

    That's what movies were for.

    Just curious, which of the two Star Trek movies that David was in was the one movie?

    :)

    I think the most common misconception about Voyager is that the Borg Survived Endgame.

    They didn't.

    The Novels lied.

    As far as Berman was concerned, Janeway destroyed the Borg entirely forever saving the Federation from Assimilation till the end of time because she's a super hero.

    2 through 4 was a single super movie they cut into parts for theatrical release, or at least you could trick a stupid person into believing that that was true without much effort.

    He tried to get stoned with Wesley in an episode of TNG too.

    And he played a fairly excellent super cool moron archetype in the 80s sitcom Square Pegs.

    1989?

    Well, I did think that he had been keeping a low profile recently.

    Your presumption to be able to see into the heads of fans (who all apparently think alike) is pretty obnoxious.

    ..and Kirk would have been memorialized for making it happen and making the right decision.

    It hypocracy at it's best.

    Why does someone have to be at fault? How would that change anything?

    There is no moral justification to allow this mistake to take the lives of 2 people.

    Kes' crying made me puke.

    Not gone at all. Arrived is the Janeway that will do what she needs to do to save her crew.

    Their lives are already lost. Restoring that requires the execution of another, who is innocent.

    And it would be exactly the same moral question with Kirk and his crew.

    I would submit their lives are not lost, mearly in a different state. As life can't be created.

    If the result of the experiment ended up creating a blob that had been determined to be sentient, noone would be making the argument against Janeway's decision.

    I might. Others here might. Don't make presumptions about our reactions.

    A bloblike creature would be harder for us to emphathise and identify with - simply our human nature, we respond more to life forms that look like us - so that could be a pretty interesting premise.

    Tuvok and Neelix's lives had stopped and could not continue without stopping someone else who didn't want to stop and had basic rights not to stop that the federation should be upholding. Not sure why you're quibbling semantics or what you mean by life can't be creaed.

    It's a transporter accident. They were able to fix it.
