    if i'm not mistaken, that looks like a shot from "scientific method."

    EDIT: nevermind. she still had long hair in "scientific method."

    I scouted through Season 4 screencaps, and I found it!

    It's from Waking Moments:

    Oh, heck no.

    I wouldn't mind cohabiting, though. ;)

    I just realized I got this thread and the 'Ask Admiral' thread confused. I'm really glad you knew what I was talking about.

    I think it's time for me to go to bed, folks.

    I love it when I've said, "Darmok and Jalad," and someone has said "at Tanagra."

    Makes me all happy inside. Ah! Kindred spirit!

    Robert Beltran obviously didn't give a damn about his scenes, it showed, and it dragged the whole room down when he said anything. Look at what he says.

    "When you're given these throwaway scenes with not much thought put into who's saying it and its importance to the whole story - and I'm talking mostly about seasons five and six here - it just makes me feel like the writers don't care. Therefore the producers don't care, therefore the show isn't that important, therefore why am I busting my ass trying to make this stupid scene worth anything?"

    "I just felt let down, ignored and insulted. I think they did a grave disservice to what I thought could have been an interesting character."

    What he doesn't realize is that its a feedback cycle. He doesn't think Chakotay has enough to do, so he under performs, so the writers give him less to do. Instead of talking to the writers and maybe pitching his own ideas, he just half-asses it. The result is that whenever he does anything, its a bring down. They should have written him off the show instead of Kes, who clearly brought enthusiasm and energy to her role.

    No they should not have written him off the show. He is big, solid, good looking and makes a fine hunk of ballast for Janeway. Kes is too weak and little for that role.

    Chakotay in the later part of the show is... just there. He's probably even doing something important. But it's so dull and uninteresting, every scene he's in just makes me want to hit the fast forward button.

    I think he's paid for his attitude, he doesn't get that many parts. Yes, he does plays in LA, but that's not as visible to the larger Trek audience.

    Of course, MANY Trek actors don't get that many parts, at least those whose characters were not focused upon and who didn't go into directing. Maybe some have lost interest--or have other interests--but I think there are so many actors in Hollywood that, for most of them, it's amazing to land a role at all!

    True, alas in 3 seasons KES hugged Janeway more than Chakotay got to in 7 seasons.

    :rolleyes:

    Heck, even B'ELANNA & the EMH hugged her more than Chakotay did!
