    I voted "Meh. Useless." But then, I'm not much of a fan of kids on scifi shows in general. Didn't like Wesley Crusher or Naomi Wildman either.

    Jake Sisko was a bit better...but I think that was because he 'grew up' on the show and had more adult-themed interactions later on.

    But generally speaking, I'm bored by the kids storylines on scifi shows.

    Thank God nuBSG didn't stick in that annoying kid that was in the original BSG series. Dodged a bullet there, I think. :D

    How do you know. Maybe the one true god is Boxey. The Cylons are of the belief that in order to grow up, they need to kill their parents. :D

    They had potential but the writers failed to really use it.

    Without the Borg kids, Seven couldn't say:

    "It is sixteen hundred hours. Fun will now commence."

    I just about fell over at that one!!

    They didn't bother me. But by the time they arrived I had extremely low expectations during my Voyager viewings. I think they could have done better, but the storyline wasn't a complete waste. Icheb was nicely developed, and the storyline with his family was well done IMO. I think they pulled it off better than I expected them too.

    A epicode called Haunting of Deck 12 has Naomi placed as a prankster.

    I guess you would have to see the long to explain

    But at the beginning the epicode, It has Imazadi explaining Naomi told them that Deck 12 was haunted when Kneelix was telling them the story of what happend before they joined Voyager...

    Which explains why they don't communicate...

    Icheb was cool, but the other kids just seemed to be part of Seven's plot most of the time. The Haunting of Deck Twelve was a real fun episode, though.

    When they first appeared I was very dubious about the idea - expecting some Wesley-style stuff. However, as other people have observed, The Haunting of Deck 12 was a good episode. Their interactions with 7 were also good.

    Overall, they were OK, IMO.

    Overall, I thought the Borg kids were a useful addition to Voyager. Icheb was a good character; smart but not annoying like Wesley Crusher. Mezoti was particularly interesting, as she seemed to quickly regain her youth and sense of rebelliousness. The twins were sort of boring, but they did not get very much screen time. I like to look at the Borg kids as a way of challenging Seven of Nine in her struggle for humanity.

    I've always liked them because Voyager wasn't in a good position to have a lot of recurring characters, let alone children. I thought they brought out human emotion and motherly instincts in Seven, so they served a purpose just by doing that.
