    Or there was another reason she rebuffed Paris, and it would have been her competing with Paris for Torres' love.

    One thing about Lt. Stadi always bothered me... she tells Paris, a disgraced ex-Starfleet officer and prisoner borrowed for the mission, about the bio-neural gel packs when she tells him about the ship. That was a very new technological addition to a Starfleet vessel, so new that she was one of, if not THE, first ships to have it as part of the ship's systems. And it was likely a classified technology... or at least, classified to people who are not currently serving in Starfleet.

    I understand the need to explain that technology in the pilot, but that could have been added anywhere. Isn't what she did a criminal act, letting out Starfleet technological knowledge like that to someone outside Starfleet?

    The only way I can see around this is when Janeway brought him aboard, she put his clearance level high enough to warrant that sharing of information.

    Well, I mean, if I say I have a transporter at home, that won't give you any idea how I built it, will it?

    I imagine the specs for the gel packs might be classified, but it's hard for me to believe they're so incredibly amazing that simply dropping the term without any detail would be problematic.

    Actually, in Eye of the Needle Janeway is pretty blasé about the fact that Romulan spies have likely already done a full work-up on Voyager.
    If she's okay with the Tal Shiar and the Romulan government having detailed information on her ship, then I'm sure she's fine with Stadi telling Tom about the gel packs.

    It's one thing that another empire GAINED the information from spies and such, but quite another when one of your officers actually PROVIDES it.

    I, again, fail to see how simply providing the name of the tech would be illegal.

    She was also explaining a bit on how the gel packs function.

    It doesn't mean much of anything. Our military tells more than that about much of its own hardware.

    After reviewing the scene, here's all that's said on the matter of the gel packs:
    All she really provides is a general description of the gel packs, nothing about how they function. Indeed, that sounds like routine information that would be publicly available on Federation Wiki rather than anything classified.

    Exactly. When the U.S. Navy was building the Zumwalt class destroyer, there was all kinds of information available, even 3D diagrams of the ship. The ship is still brand new, and look at the readily available information on Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zumwalt-class_destroyer

    All for me, the layman.

    Ah yes, the USS Zumwalt - commanded by Captain James Kirk. Who I am sure is pretty damn tired of the constant stream of Trek jokes from the crew. :lol:

    I don't think Stadi was into Tom at all. Like you said, his 'charms' did nothing for her. Maybe they could have been friends, but nothing more than that.

    Actually I think Tom and Stadi were too much alike, really. If they had dated, it wouldn't have worked out. Tom expected to win Stadi over, but he found true love with somebody he never expected - i.e. B'Elanna.

    Stadi remained conn officer on Voyager in Myriad Universes: A Gutted World, where Voyager is not lost in the DQ.

    Maybe not. He chose "Tiberius" for his callsign after all.
    IIRC, Cavit was still XO there as well.

    ^ Yep. No opportunity for Cavit to run across the bridge at a random moment and get himself killed like a dumbass. :p

    I would have been curious to see a Betazoid who isn't interested in "counseling" and similar duties in any way, shape or form - who is maybe even annoyed by the empathic/telepathic input

    Suder?

    Perhaps not quite that annoyed? :p

    Well there must have been Betazoid physicists, engineers, and so on otherwise their civilization would never have progressed past the industrial age.

    I think Stadi rebuffed the advances of Mr. Paris because she knew he was only interested in her because she was a new pretty face. She may not have even needed telepathy for that.

    May? I'd say definately didn't.
