    Shhhh. We're not talking about Paul Hogan anymore.

    But This kid is who I could actually see keeping Kathryn's bed warm at night.

    They were standing sooooooo close in Deadlock.

    I might have a pornovision filter enhancing most of my memories, but I if I were not a betting man I would swear that she had her hand on his shoulder the whole time.

    But then considering who she was talking to on the other side of that spacial scission, all that sexual energy swelling up had to go somewhere, so why not Hogan's shoulder?

    I think she bent over at one point and one of her boobs was resting against his neck.

    Janeway had her hand on everyone's shoulder most of the time. But maybe you found Hogan so hot you wanted it to happen.

    That has never happened before in the history of Voyager!

    No radical corner of the fandom has ever insisted that a romantic relationship full of hot sex has persisted in secret throughout the shows run between Janeway and another member of her crew that was worth fulling up hundreds of fanfiction archives over.

    I had a fanboy "OMFG!!!!1!!!!!11!!!!oneoneone" moment when they beamed Voyager into the big effin' Voth ship.

    I thought it was an ok episode overall. Goofy premise, but when you're following pyjama-wearing space adventurers, it goes with the territory.

    It's been clear for years that genitals can be anywhere.

    Not only must there be regulation butflaps on these service-all-species-uniforms, but there must be numerous velcro(?) sealed flaps for whatever genital or sphincter port that they got going on more or less unique or common to their part of the quadrant.

    The interesting aside does have to be, is what does a human with genitals where we racialistically think that they do belong, now cleverly do with all those numerous additional points of exit and entry they are not used to dealing with?

    (Replicators would mean that any one can have a race specific uniform, but the ships stores would still need this sort of multipurpose uniform for a redundancy if something happens to the power for an extended period.)

    Of course if I was designing the starfleet uniform, I would design it so that it could be easily turned into a kite, that can recharge a powered down communicator badge in a lightning storm if there really is no other option.

    Dinosaurs were even more stupid than birds and here this 4-footed grazing variety, that snacks on shrubs and belches methane is going to evolve into a space-faring race - whilst still in the Dinosaurian Age?!! This episode is rubbish. Trying to ca$h in on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, perhaps. Or maybe even Jurassic Park, however remotely ...

    Or I don't know.. people could take their uniforms OFF.

    Maybe you envision Starfleet planning ahead for furtive liasons in little used hallways?

    I wasn't talking about sex yet.

    But if they want to fornicate through a butflap, I'm good with that.

    I don't think flaps are an improvement on pulling down the pants to use the loo. Too much margin for error. And how are they supposed to stay out of the way, velcro? Or maybe the fabric panel slides.. eh, none of that is any good.

    Picard seemed to have a zipper down the front of his uniform sometimes, but kirk used velco to keep his phaser attached to his belt.

    Imagine this... There is gravity plating on most everything toilet related exacting weak gravamertric fields to attract body waste towards the best collections area in the toilet.

    Hell, if they're going to manipulate universal forces (gravity) to control ones pee, why have a bowl? Just walk into a waste collection room, then whizz or plop in any direction which will be instantly caught by invisible holographic slides and shoots, and then labyrinthinely attracted to a septic tank somewhere before your bio-waste is recycled into bio-matter for the replicator.

    :)

    I have this 20 year old memory of going into a public restroom, a few walls worth of urinals just going on and on... It must have been a movie theatre, but there was this kid, who had to have been at least 5 and raised by apes, because he was standing up, while his trousers and underwear were pulled down to where his ankles were, as he was just doing his business.

    He didn't know how to pee!

    Flaps and flies are magnificent, and he was not taking advantage of this fantastic invention!

    Oh, the humanity!

    Edit.

    I've long since assumed that personal replicators are toilets, which makes me wonder if you're allowed to poop and pee at the replimat too?

    In the Future, they want you to shit where you eat.

    The more you put into the replicator the more you get back.

    What if Voyager's replicator rations are not based egalitarily but it's a matter of the more you put in, the more you are allowed to take out?

    (You know where I'm going next.)

    You know how it's safe to drink other peoples pee but dangerous to drink your own pee?

    So unless the waste collected by your home replicator is shot off to a grand repository of deposits where it's shaken and not stirred, it's really kinda filthy to eat anything out of your own replicator if in all honesty it's just a large bucket of your own resequenced faeces...

    Guests.

    You have to have Guests keep you quarter's bio-matter tank full for you.

    Health consciously, you can only poo in other peoples homes, but if the amount of poo in your own home on Voyager determines how many replicator rations it is that you deserve for the week, it all becomes a massive popularity contest about how to convince the most crew to use your replicator in your room for their toilet.

    Lines must have been drawn as Crewmen chose sides or paired off.

    That was an interesting essay on the shitconomics of the 24th century.

    But Harry Kim, being an ensign, has to take more shit than anybody else, so his ration allowance must be astronomical.
