    Q2 was a fair episode because Icheb and q were fun together, and maybe that the hedgehog had his vocal cords removed. Seven's complete nudity in Stellar Cartography barely registered.

    Or, did you mean male nudity?

    Strange but true 7 of 9 with her set of boobs did save the show.

    Was the show really going to be canceled if Jeri Ryan didn't "maintained" the ratings? I'll admit that her introduction did increase Voyagers profile, but then she was a no nothing actress from nothing who was made by Voyager more so than the other way around. how well did "jeri" increase the ratings more so than any other Borg with a "killer" bod? Did the ratings increase at all eve how dramatically?

    Voyager had a decade worth of Momentum by that point, something awful would have had to have been happening for it to lose all that momentum other than consistently awful stories since that is the bread and butter which every one expected and felt nourished by.

    Guy, DS9 had Jadzia Dax and she walked around pointing her boobs out. If DS9 did not have such a dark background and she was not in black around her breasts she would so stand out.

    With Jerri, she has boobs and the show wanted to show them off any way they could. Silver gee man silver outfit my god man they had them pointing out all the time.

    That is what Voyager became, watch us as we have a woman with huge breasts. Kes did not work, Torris she was ok, could not have a captain with hooters.

    "Learning Curve" where he punches out one of his Maquis so he learns to follow orders.

    "Year of Hell" where he starts to side with Annorax.

    "Fury" he orders Harry to rip the ship apart to escape the Viidians.(Best use of Chakotay ever!)

    How he went rogue just to hopefully put an end to Seska.

    "Unimatrix Zero", Chakotay's superior battle tactics allow Janeway and company to beam on a Borg Cube.

    Encouraged the Voth scientist to persue his goals even though he knew it might end his life & career.

    For that I always saw Chakotay as private in his personal life but aggressive by nature.

    I know, wtf is with star trek and boobs.

    Just a feeling we are going to have an all female star trek show with 36D women walking around the place.

    To be fair, it also helped that Jeri Ryan could act, whereas Terry Farrel, IMO, couldn't.

    Along with the EMH, Seven was one of the best characters on Voyager. I don't care for the show, too much, myself, but it would be harsh to write off Ryan as simple eye-candy. Yes, there was that side to the character, and to be fair, it was often quite blatent, but the character was still a decent character.

    A shame she was wasted on Voyager ;)

    Seriously, what was the point? Mulgrew's certainly no oil painting to begin with! ;)

    She was nice eye candy, and she could act. If she was not on Boaringger opps Voyager ... would she fit in with DS9? Having her on DS9 with Jadzia Dax with two eye candies ... well three if you add in Leeta would be over doing it.

    Think Kes would have been better on DS9 than Voyager ... DS9 has more class without the need of over doing the eye candy

    ^^ Should have had Seven instead of Jadzia. No comparison there. And lose the catsuit, no need.

    Jennifer Lien's a decent actress. Kes was never really given enough to do on Voyager.

    Right, which is exactly why Jadzia had sexual relations with nearly every man she met, Bashir saw woman just as sex objects, Quark promoted gambling & porn holoprograms, Jake & Nog both started out as con artists, O'Brian & Sisko had racist beliefs and Odo believed in justice by any means necassary.

    Yes, very classy. ;)

    ^^ To be fair, you only need to mention 'Let He Who is Without Sin....' ;)

    And you didn't even mention Leeta! :lol:

    No way, Sisko needed Jadzia. She was his best friend, confidant & sounding board. Seven couldn't emotionally give Sisko what he needed, she was too distant.

    ^^ No, perhaps I should have said that DS9 should have had Jeri Ryan over Terry Farrell. Jeri Ryan was one of the best things about Voyager, Terry Farrell one of the worst things about DS9.

    Dude, them is fighting words!

    Jadzia Dax is my all time favorite Trek character.
    She is the embodiment of what every Trek fan wishes they could be.
    Smart, sexy, a celeb. because Dax was Curzon and everywhere she went, somebody knew him. Friends with the Ferengi, honorary Klingon, best friend to the Captain(the only one who could get away with calling Sisko by his first name), former lover of Vanessa Williams, pilot of the Defiant, she could fight like a Klingon, even the Jem'Hadar respected her.

    What's not to like about her?
    Jadzia Dax freakin' rocked!

    ^^ There was only one thing wrong with Jadzia Dax. Namely, Terry Farrell ;)

    Not going to argue the merits of the character, as I agree with you. Sadly, Farrell's performance often diluted what could have been a great character.

    In the end, I was glad to see the back of Farrell. NdB did a much better job when she came onboard as Ezri.

    Love Ferrell, disliked DeBoer. To this day, I still can't watch an ep. with her in it. DeBoer brought none of the conviction Ferrell had for the character. There was no real heart felt emotion in anything DeBoer said. When Ferrell spoke to Sisko or Worf, you even saw it in her eyes the affection she had for both of them.

    ^^ On the contrary, 99% of the time Farrell just looked smug.

    I presume you've seen the relevant thread in the DS9 forum? Probably better to address Farrell's shortcomings there than hijack another thread to discuss just how bad she was here ;)
