    Thanks!

    I kind of gave up watching South Park a while ago but when here something about a good one I return.

    Watching Voyager as kid has really affected my opinion of it,to be honest.
    I thought that it was really cool,and since I like drawing I did drawings of Janeway (which don't really look good now lol).
    Websites like Janet's Voyager Page (RIP) made me like Voyager even more,but when I used the internet more I was so confused and upset because so many people were saying that Janeway was horrible,Seven took over the whole show,Neelix sucked,etc etc.After getting into Doctor Who this year,I realized the importance of looking at episodes critically and some critics do have a point about its wasted potential.
    Nevertheless,Voyager remains my favorite series and I like all the main characters (which is really rare for me).

    I have a folder of pics I saved from Janet's page. Apparently that site had like 2500 pages? Or something amazing? The info is in the old Janeway sexy thread as I recall. I said at the time it was like an illuminated manuscript of early internet. She got all those pics laboriously from capturing them from video. I wish she'd done a fund raiser or something to keep it online, it was a fascinating archive not just for Voyager (all that info is in memoryalpha now) but for early web pages and fan pages.

    I don't care about Voyagers wasted potential. It was the most humorous of Treks and it had great, often larger than life characters. It is COLOURFUL! And adorable :)

    That website was really amazing;I spend hours browsing through it *sighs dreamily*

    But yes I agree that Voyager was funny and wonderful,it's a pity that so many people underrate it! I really like everyone,even Neelix,I don't see how he was the Jar Jar of the Trek universe.

    I vote Wesley's sweaters to be the Jar Jar of the Trek universe.

    Liking something for what it is, not niticking it for not matching the idealized version in your head? I'm sure that violates some rule of the internet.

    I couldn't stand another day of looking at my face looking abnormally attractive after mating with Janeway. It was creeping me out.

    Are Kirk and Spock about to fight bare chested to see who gets a roll in the sack with Kathryn, or is this symbolism for a Kirk/Spock sperm cocktail that gives her a 50/50 Russian Roulette chance of walking away from this encouter with a Kirk baby or a spock baby?

    I hope this isn't going to turn into that old question of whether it's just Spock's ears that are pointed.
