    For the "nameless extras" theme, is it OK if the character spoke but was not named onscreen?

    The internet ate my first answer, sorry! Here goes second try...:

    That sounds fine by me, so long as it's a minor character without, as you say, a given name onscreen. I had totally voiceless background perfomers in mind when I proposed the idea, but I suppose I didn't specify that did I? (you could make a point of the fact that I didn't call it "voiceless extras" ;)) So, a character who had a line or two without being named or made significant seems okay. :)

    Exactly, like the rather impressively endowed Glinn (or Dal) that I chose for this contest who had only but one line. "Sirs, Dukat is here to see you." or something similar.

    I imagine that he'd have had a meteoric rise to the top with his promising career cut sadly brief with a heroic death at the hands of either the Klingon or Romulans several moths before Damar's revolt...

    "Impressively-endowed" as though those were another part of the anatomy...then again, I guess to a Cardassian, they might be. :lol:

    The extras I chose...one did have a name in the script, but it was never spoken onscreen. I really wish we knew what had happened to those kids after Garak crushed their hearts. This is the story I really, really, REALLY want to know, and have wanted to know for years. :(


    Random Theme:

    From Fantasia. There's something about those soft-yet-striking Art Deco colors... :) (I can't take the credit for the original GIF animation, but for cropping it and resizing it.)

    Me too... l'd hope that as things on Bajor got better more were a adopted to good homes... or that their families were found again... l can't see people doing nothing. :(

    But by the end of DS9 (TV series l mean) they were probably adults?

    Then again, Cardassia would see them simply as orphans, so without status or worth, and much of Bajor would see them simply as Cardassians, so they might well have stayed where they were until they were old enough to leave as adults. :(

    I have no idea how come this cutie became a guard on such a nasty station, but I gave this face a different life in my fanfic :D

    But by the end of the time covered during DS9 most could have been adults... it's the same here on earth today though- a lot of people want babies when they adopt and they're super fussy about the race etc. of the child... lt's sad. :/

    Voting thread will be up today...
