    Is that why she changed to such an ugly hairstyle? To cover her no-longer-Ocampan ears?

    To some extent, wouldn't it have depended on what sort of deal his agent negotiated for him?

    You'd have kept Chakotay?

    Well, I guess somebody has to be the Captain.

    From your location and the above, I'm guessing you might work for one of the east coast-based soaps? This is exactly the kinds of things I've seen mentioned in articles talking about the backstage goings-on. It becomes a balancing act of "if I give it my all, maybe they'll keep me" vs "why should I give it my all if they're probably going to fire me anyway?".

    Dunno about other countries, but Voyager has been a staple of the Space Channel in Canada for a very long time.

    Neelix taught Seven how to eat real food.

    I found Kes to be insufferably annoying, and am glad they got rid of her.

    What wife? Neelix and Kes were never married.

    It is rather astonishing that more kids weren't born during VOYAGER's run. Rubbers and Morning After Pills must've been in very short supply, as they made their way through the Delta Quardrant. What else was there to do besides holodeck adventures to relieve the monotony? Even the chaste B'Elanna had every guy chasing her - including a particularly randy Vulcan. To be Frank & Ernest, I always just took it as read that chicks were getting knocked up, all the time ... it just wasn't brought up.

    I guess TPTB liked The 'Lix (and The 'Lips) more than they did Harry or Kes.

    I am continually in awe at Timewalker's multi-quote prowess. Every time I try and do that many half of it disappears.

    The.. Lips? Is T'Pol on this show?

    Thanks. :)

    I got used to multiquoting years ago on a forum where people were infracted for double-posting, never mind triple-posting. This forum is actually a bit easier since nested quotes are allowed. On that other site, I have to do nested quotes manually.

    The (Ethan Phil)Lips

    The (Nee)Lix

    This is what happens when I venture into the Voyager forum with that episode guest starring The Rock in mind.

    And what wrestling name would Janeway have?

    We already have one for.. Chuckles.

    "Bun of Steel" Kathryn Janeway. Her catchphrase would be: "It's Janeway, or the highway!"

    I'm assuming Frank & Ernest are a misogynistic comedy act.

    In DS9 we found out that (for humans) it's a monthly hypospray shot taken by both genders. Both participants have to lapse before they can conceive a child.

    The Doctors Daughter played Sookie's cousin on True Blood, so there's like a 5 percent chance we've seen her a little bit naked.

    They do grow up fast.

    The EMH would be able to whip up contraceptives just like he whips up other drugs.

    I don't think we saw much of Sookie's cousin naked wise, she did a lot of fawning around the Queen but nothing ever eventuated with that.. the Queen seemed more interested in her male consort/slaves.

    C-list celebrity boobs, f-list in this case, are just not that important to me any more.

    Being all porned out does not mean that meeting women in person is not exciting, even though I'm well trained to excrete disinterest from every pore. There is nothing I find more annoying than a woman miscalulating that I am in love with her just because It seems like I should have no standards and be swinging wildly at everything pitch.

    My earlier post tripped something in my mind and I've started downloading season one of Kathy Griffen My Life on the D-List.

    :lol:

    I guess that would only be annoying if they rejected you when you had in fact made no such advance.. here have a freebie rejection for something you never asked for!

    Doubtful. A lot of females are in defense mode ready to repel the hordes they think may be trying to catch them in widely thrown nets. Oh did you talk to me a little bit, WERE YOU BEING NICE?!! Fuck off, I don't want to date you.

    But really communication problems abound.

    Yup. There is an echo in here. :)

    Ethan was there for comedy.

    They'd have gotten rid of him if they wanted to bring in someone new who was funnier.

    Jeri was brought in for sexiness, so they had to remove someone else that was there for sexiness and not living up to that sexiness.
