    This is the 23rd Century. There are no Warp 10 shuttles.

    But if there was it would still be BEAUTIFUL.

    Winona would have a terrarium installed on the basement level of her silo, for the grandkids.

    Actually... Considering in one episode, Kirk's Enterprise once impelled at a stunning Warp 14, and the general belief because of that, is that there had been a recalibration of the Warp Scale between generations, so that in the 23rd century, a warp 10 Shuttle is not, I think, what you think it is.

    I chuff at being such clever prick.

    There are creams for that.

    And yes yes.. the Warp thingies and their calibrations. Perhaps the evolution bonus was a peculiarity of the Delta quadrant.

    NuKirk looks like an old school buddy named Thomas. That's why I refer to him as Thomas Kirk.

    Have to agree here.

    They had some solid actors and an interesting premise but it ended up being less than the sum of its parts.

    Like the bits left over when you're building something from IKEA?

    They include those extra parts just to screw with us.

    Are you saying Harry was an extra part that fell into the box?

    If tv show was the entire kitset then yes harry is an surplus part that made it's way into the box by accident.

    Though I think i was talking about the square holes in his personality when god only gave us a few square pegs to ifnish him up with...

    I found a sitcom with Molly Ringwald, Jenna Elfman and Lauren Graham all together being dead sexy 15 years ago.

    How can these things stay hidden for so long?

    It's the easter eggs of life, to give people the will to continue through the slog.

    Time travel, nature's way of bringing ALL women to Kirk.

    Would it be his time, then?
    Could be funny to have Janeway ranting about the "uniforms" female officers wear at that time.

    (This is a rewrite of a long past discussion I had here on this idea.)

    She is sent back into time on some kind of mission and meets NuKirk who is smitten with her and not a little awed (this can be Prime KJ or NuKJ, doesn't matter). He is nicely provocative (which Janeway desires in men) in that flirtatious Kirk way but she doesn't pay too much attention because of his youth and because she is on a mission. She's also a little awed herself because she knows who this man will become. But despite NuKirk's tongue hanging out all over the place and his open interest in her which she fobs off over the course of the mission she comes to deeply admire him. Admire as a real person, not just as the great Captain Kirk who is a piece of history.

    And then, with a shock, she realizes there is more there than just admiration.

    On the one hand she sees that element of Marla McGivers at play, because many of us DO admire the great ones of history, idolize them and feel the attraction. But being Janeway she is able to turn that over in her mind, name it for what it is and put it away as a curiosity. What surprises her is when she realizes her attraction to NuKirk is far more personal than hero worship and a hot young man, she finds him deeply personally attractive. And that's a very sad thing as she realizes that in another life, another time, this would have have been her greatest love, the man she has always wanted. And she can't have him because she is separated by far more than a couple decades in age.. and before she returns home she passionately kisses that man, that should have been true love, goodbye.

    It's so frakking sad you will cry.

    Age shouldnt be a factor in relaionships today, let alone 200+ years in the future when lifespans are far longer and people are supposed to be a lot more open minded.

    It wasn't the age, it was the time travel! They aren't separated by age difference but because she must return to the 24th century. It's tragic I tells ya.

    I had a stray thought. When they decide to make this reboot movie , they should release Voyager on blu-ray around the same time. For special features I'm thinking they could greenscreen Kate Mulgrew at whatever her current age would be at the time into Endgame. She can be Admiral Janeway again.
