Hope he doesn't think she'll be attracted to money and power. Because Q had unlimited amounts of both (and puppies too), and he struck out.

I was actually thinking about that the other day. I have a few ideas on replicators that could explain burning a meal.
We know temperature can be specified. Picard did a generic "hot" on his tea orders,and I'm 90% sure someone (I'm picturing it being Barclay) ordered cold water at a specific degrees celsius.
I also remember someone ordering something, the computer saying ti wasn't on file and said specifications could be inputted to make it. (Riker as Odan maybe?)
so based on that perhaps replicators can have items added to their menu via a few ways. Someone cooks real food and then places it in the replicator to be dematerialized/analyzed/scanned for future replication. Or another way, which can lead to burned food, is to input a recipe and the replicator makes the finished product based on that. If someone put in a recipe or directions that specified too hot a temperture and/or too long a cooking time it would replicate a burned product.
So maybe Janeway was trying to recreate her grandmother's cooking but didn't know the directions and told the replicator to create a roast that had been cooked at 275C for 5 hours when it should have been 170C for 1 hour.

It's possible that Picard just told his replicator that "hot" means, say "75 degrees Celsius", unless otherwise instructed.

Here's an observation I took from "Resolutions"... we might think on the surface that Tuvok was adamant in the notion of leaving Janeway and Chakotay behind, while others (Harry especially) were opposed. But consider that on no occasion does Tuvok actually assume the role all the way: he still wears his yellow uniform with lieutenant rank pips. Logically, it would have been wisest for him to dress the part right away, and to establish a replacement for Chakotay as well. This would have smoothed the transition and helped everyone "move on".

I get the sense that whatever his admonishments to Harry, Tuvok was himself looking for an excuse...

Speaking of which, One was made with the DNA of Ensign Mulcahey (and no one else)... He should have looked exactly like him instead of... completely different.

It should have been Tom Paris, just to be coherent with Unimatrix Zero (If memory serves).

That's nothing. Worf's look has changed continuously from TNG's season one till "Nemesis"... You could make a movie of his changes, like how man evolved from the Pithecanthropus look to the modern one.

And Worf's forehead makeup in the "past" in "All Good Things" did not match his actual first season look. It was the same as his seventh season look. To me, that's further evidence that the whole thing was just a fantasy/dream scenario concocted by Q.

I remember B'elanna's hairline originally being further back. Maybe in-universe she had some kind of cosmetic treatment.

Not necessarily... remember that Tuvok was slow to warm up to the Maquis crew. He might not have been as ready to promote one of them after 2 years, and Tom was sort of in the same boat. But, at this point in time, Harry wasn't even ready to be a lieutenant, let alone first officer. He might have chosen one of the lieutenants somewhere, like Carey.

No ensigns though: that'd be silly.

Very silly. So yes, Tom is a possible candidate. In "Before and After", he was a lieutenant commander, and presumably second officer.

In "Unimatrix Zero" he was Chakotay's number one.

It was only 3 years but oh my god, you're completely right. He had a son on that planet and didn't even consider staying, but then a few years down the line he considered dumping Voyager for a singing career! What!

Tincoo is from the "math planet" but she doesn't know what an equation is... It would be like finding out that Shakespeare couldn't read.

Brannon Braga had an almost obsession with time travel stories. When he went to VOYAGER, he was promoted to full producer, supervising producer, and later running the writers room. Not a coincidence that series used time travel more as it went on.

About 20 percent of his credited episodes dealt with time. That may not sound like much, but with 110 episodes and 2 movies that have his name on it, it's a LOT of material on one subject.

Some of them were really good... "Cause And Effect", "Timescape", "All Good Things...", the "YEAR OF HELL" two-parter, "TIMELESS". But it got old really fast and lost its luster as a plot device. (Temporal Cold War on ENTERPRISE, anyone?)

They really do like the concept of reversible death... for the main characters that is, when the others are dead, it's for good, even that girlfriend of Harry's who seemed to have come back from the dead and then it turned out she really was dead and didn't know it yet...

I mean how many times have we seen one of the mainees ( short for main characters ) die and then be brought back to life? I'd say too many to count as far as I am concerned. I hear Janeway alone died seventeen times!!!

I recently did a rewatch of Stargate SG-1. I honestly wish they had done their own version of Timescape. It would have been fun, especially if O'Neil was one of those not "frozen".

I think "Unending" was an interesting take on time paradoxes.
