    That's cheating.

    They might as well make Seska a Romulan.

    You're an ensign.

    I don't mean to be brash, but there's a %99 chance that you're a phishing meme or a spambot.

    That's a really good idea. She could be the smaller, somewhat defective innocent Vorta. She could fall in love with Weyoun because some stray hormones slipped into her cloning vat. In order to save her life Bashir has to remove all traces of hormones and love and the poor dear has a five minute ethical dilemma about it.

    Oh and every time she shows up to destroy the Federation, Bashir can 'safely' turn her "emotions" back on for just long enough before the toxicity builds up to dangerous levels, like a double gent they can control with the flip of a switch... Which makes me wonder why when she is an evil Vorta she keeps putting herself in a situation where "they" make her betray the Founders that they might wonder if she's really a triple agent or just an addict?

    Bashir will of course fall for her because he's like that.

    Because there's nothing unethical, immoral or illegal about A Doctor diddling his patients.

    Poor Bashir, he's DS9's The Doctor so everyone is his patient. Never mind he can add that to his ethical dilemma scene.

    Just imagine the temptations of having Vorta Kes's hormones under his control.

    We could have this whole episode minus Bashir's angst if MU Bashir showed up and locked our Bashir in a closet for the duration.

    Honestly, I think that Kes was and is best as she was in the first three seasons of Voyager.

    Just add a prolonged lifespan.

    She's mayfly.

    Extending her life span alters who and what she is.

    the character will suffer.

    Just like how they took the Doctor out of sickbay with his mobile emitter.

    Of Maquis Starfleet tensions evaporated over night.

    Or they didn't run out of torpedoes half way through season one.

    Seriously, there are author out there that think that Superman should get over that kryptonite thing.

    That being said.

    Clone her.

    Transfer her conciousness like they did with Denora Pel.

    Simple.

    Although that's not really immortality, it's just being a bastard to your child.

    The only set back is Jen Lien can't wear the latex and make up it takes to be a Vorta. She has allergies to the latex and glue. Wasn't that why they grew her hair longer, to cover that up?

    Still don't get the irony of why she looks like Tinkerbell, huh?

    Tinkerbell shows up in a lot of different cartoons on TV now and then and has done so for many years. She has not aged a day either so I guess that means than Kes will live for almost an eternity too. :)

    Tinks radioactive dandruff is what keeps the lost boys young.

    Though if you read the book, Tinkerbelle was a jealous little minx.

    She tried to kill Wendy in the 2nd act.

    The little blond fairy felt like she was being replaced by a giantess.

    Sound familiar?

    Unfortunately, that's not irony and you don't know your Tinkerbell well enough to remember she was a Judas. She sold out Peter Pan, Wendy and all the Lost Boys to Capt Hook.
    The irony is the fact that Kes looks like Tinkerbell, a character that never grows up and will never die but yet Kes will grow old and die over a short period of time. Kes looks like Tinkerbell but is mentally Wendy, Peter Pan's love that didn't want to be young forever and left Neverneverland to grow old and have the life she never could with Peter. Ocampa was Kes' Neverneverland. The fact that she was facing her death in "Fury", it's natural she'd want to return to the place of her youth.

    Are we sur that Tink was a child?

    She was born in neverland i would have thought?

    The Indians didn't age, buit they didn't fly either.

    Ditto with the pirates.

    Meh?

    Although if Tink is born fully mature (just like Kes relatively speaking.) isn't it possible there's a sort of to catch a predator element going on with her prepubescent lad cattle?

    Nobody flew without her pixie dust.
    Remember, that's how Peter gets Wendy and her brothers to Neverland. They had to fly to the second star to the right and straight on till morning.

    I'm going to assume Tinkerbell was a child cause Peter viewed her as an equal. He viewed Wendy as a mother figure. Remember he took her so she could babysit the lost boys and cook and clean for them.
