    I wonder what Kes is hiding under that flopsy whopsy bunny tail?

    Babies come out from between her shoulder blades, but usually underneath a tail is a bunghole, which is an orifice that is very rarely seen as a celebrity for expressing babies.

    worse.

    IMO, seasons 2 and 3 were the best of the show.

    What if Garibaldi had a poster of 7 above his bed instead of Daffy Duck? Would he have looked less lonely or more lonely?

    More lonely. I always thought he was cool for being a Daffy Duck fan.

    That wasn't a poster, it was a tapestry (a carpet he put on the wall more likely.), and I'm not sure how hot pornographic weaving gets even in the 22nd century... But you have to wonder how much of Disney Planet is devoted to Star Wars or would the rights have supposed to have reverted to Lucus at some point?

    Kes was awesome but they refused to develop any character in any direction besides toward the center. That's why Harry never developed. I thought the actor was very effective, but he started out in the center, so he had nowhere he was allowed to go. Then when a character got to the center, they had nowhere else to go.

    What happened with Kes anyway? Did Lien want to leave or was she fired?

    Braga wanted a Borg. Network replied it's a sausagefest already, use a Borgette instead. They couldn't have a new full time cast member without making room. They tried to fire Wang as People Magazine voted him one of the most sexiest people in the world. Wang dodged a bullet which hit Jennifer squarely in the face, then Jennifer went wee, wee all the way home.

    Shame really. I find Kes cute and sexy. Screw bland and boring Harry. Take Chakotay also, character was equally dull and wooden. Have 7 as first officer. She had enough screen time to warrant it.

    My question is... why did someone have to leave to begin with? Was there a payroll limit on the main cast or something?

    Just because Seven can do the Job, she's still not a Starfleet Officer. They make sure that you're decent, honourable,tolerant and not psychotically crazy. It's a serious process to make sure that they continue to think the right way even in the worst situations... Although, sometimes a few headcases slip through because their parents are top shelf.

    There's a %60 chance that Seven of Nine is a Borg Sleeper.

    Meanwhile there's a %30 chance that she's been the Borg Queen the whole time laughing at the crew of Voyager from a quiet place in her soul.

    It's bad enough that Tom was First Officer in Resolutions.

    Bingo.

    There's a payroll limit on everything, and moving money around without the right signatures to back up executive decisions is fraud and embezzlement.

    Besides even after removing Lien, they still needed to find more money, because it's highly unlikely that they would have been paid the same.

    They probably fired a couple boom operators as well.

    And it wasn't just the fan part, but that it was hanging over his bed. Pride of place baby.

    And I had heard somewhere that it was a towel? Being used as a poster?

    I have written a poem to answer your question JirinPanthosa.


    A Borg! Braga cried,
    I shall not be denied
    Some cyber perfection
    And sweet misdirection
    From the pedestrian twaddle
    Of this Delta space waddle

    The Powers That Were twirled their pencils and grrrred.
    A girl then, if you must, and cast for the bust!
    And that boy whatshisname, kick him to the drain
    He's constantly late, hell he's sealed his own fate.

    But the People said STOP!
    Have you numbnuts not seen?
    Why he steams up the screen!
    The most beautiful man
    That ever has been.. well one in 50
    But that's still quite high
    Really, we cannot let Harry Kim die.

    CHORUS

    Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!
    Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!
    Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!

    (repeat to the whining of a clarinet, warning may cause ear bleeds)

    Lien cried, Lien wept as they dragged her away
    Braga's door slammed on good manners that day
    No letter was sent, not even a card
    The arrival of 7 had turned his heart hard (and other organs)

    And so Voyager lost the good and the sweet
    The kind and the curious, the gentle and meek
    And we had to adapt to great slash and great breasts
    Yet the debate rages on as to which is the best.

    Most likely.

    Doesn't explain why none if the main actors of DS9 were fired when Worf joined THAT show though.:vulcan:
