    You really think child actors are on the same pay grade as adult ones?

    I also love how nobody EVER takes into account that ALL those people and contractors in the ending credits all have to get paid out of the shows production budget, which is evident when fans talk about how it's possible to pay for extra actors as if there is an endless supply of money sitting around to be used.

    Child labour laws are pretty stringent too.

    Limited hours on set.

    And if they're not on the set, they're sitting with a schoolteacher. And sometimes production has to wait until the kid's out of the current lesson period.

    Was Scarlet "full time enough" to earn an on site school?

    17 episodes in three years.

    Exactly.
    I was going to say that too.

    I don't think it has anything to do with being "full time" on a series. As I've understood it, child actor labor and education laws in California depend on how many hours per day a child of a particular age is on a set. I don't know if these same laws apply to children appearing in commercials though.

    However, I am not an attorney, education professional, or in any capacity involved in film production, and am just going by things I'm remembering from books and magazine articles.

    It was my understanding that full time/part time and the amount of hrs on the set are one and he same thing.
    Commercials don't take 14 to 16 hrs to film, Trek shows do.

    A full time school on set would be needed if they had even one child who was always there.

    1998 = 2 episodes.
    1999 = 8 episodes.
    2000 = 5 episodes.
    2001 = 2 episodes.

    If Scarlet was a professional actress who was always acting, she would either have been homeschooled, or had a private tutor, who it would have been "Star Trek Voyager's" problem on any given week to pay for when she was working, or her parents when she was not working.

    Scarlet did 6 years on Reba, so it did come to a point eventually where middle school or High school would have become untennable, and an on set school would have been needed.

    Voyager was her line in the sand educationally it would seem.

    I know the subject was teased out ages ago, but just having caught up on the reminder of the thread, let me add something on the Ocampan reproductive configuration. Perhaps it was only being bandied about with a facetious jocularity, but there was never even the slightest intimation that the female... er... receptacle and attendant structures were located on their backs, only their birthing sac, that itself was not present until the approach of Showtime.


    While we can marvel about the infinite diversity possible in the variations of physigonomy of all those out there we can only eagerly look forward to someday encountering, the vision presented by quite a few of you here beggars my admittedly limited imagination!!

    You are eagerly looking forward to back vaginas?

    I have postulated both 6 foot long penises to reach a girls shoulders from the inside, and super long life sperm that can survive for weeks inside a woman until it completes the journey all the other way to the opposite side of her body, meanwhile the egg sack might be mobile like a massively enlarged testicle/punching bag, or if she is like a marsupial, after the egg is fertilized, she reaches into her penetration zone with her hand and then manually slaps it into the flap growing on her back.

    Most men look back at forward vaginas.

    Maybe that's why some people think Kes is so cute, because she is actually a marsupial.

    You have how many stories about hillbillies getting caught interfering with wallabies?

    No, I only have anecdotes which I inflate for my own enjoyment.

    You know what you're trying to make me say.

    I am not your puppet.
