    Mexico is Central America?

    No it is not.

    North it is.

    I'm sure he said he did it just to hang out with old friends again. He'll be joining Robert Picardo (if his comeback in Picard S2 actually happens) as real Trek actors who then featured in a fan film before returning to real Trek.

    He was running a seedy bar and married to a "Kathryn" in that universe.

    This is intriguing news. I used to quite like Chakotay before they threw him and half of the rest of the cast under a bus when they brought Seven onboard.

    The Janeway/Chakotay relationship should have been revisited again later in the series, as it was a great dynamic. On those terms, the announcement makes sense. I guess enough time has passed for Beltran's animosity to the studio to have petered out.

    How about a flash back to their break up?

    Interesting. If he appears as a hologram that would seem to indicate that the Protostar was launched after Voyager returned to Earth.

    David E. Sluss should be proud that Star Trek continues the tradition of the Welfare Recipient of the Week.

    This line pretty much sums up my feelings about Voyager in general.

    I suppose I should comment on the thread subject. As with most things Trek-related, I'm fairly ambivalent. Interesting though that the Voyager crew will have clocked up four appearances (Seven, Janeway, Chakotay and Paris).

    Voyager is often sited as the most popular streaming Trek (at least of the pre-Discovery serieses).

    That's... not too surprising. If you're one of the millions of people who watched TNG then drifted away from Trek in 1994, and you're feeling a bit nostalgic, Voyager is going to give you a lot of comfortable, familiar TNG vibes.

    Voyager also saw some popularity in the early to mid 2000s from syndicated reruns, probably for similar reasons stated above about why it does so well through streaming.

    Maybe if they can come up with a purpose for the character this time, we may get a more animated Chakotay

    ... or at the very least a better drawn out character arc.

    :whistle:
