    That would have been funny, if the full cast of Rios' EHs were actually all stationed in position on the bridge, together for just a visual instant, ...
    Just before Rios finally waves them away, as the new "real" crew all walk into their respective positions to replace them....

    Although likley not completley intended that way, probably the funnest one-to-one replacement match-ups are :

    -Obviously Rios stays in the same position in Captains chair:

    -Emil EMH replaced by Agnes; Medical

    -Enoch ENH replaced by Raffi; Navigation (although she's more intelligence, they significantly bonded)

    -Emmet ETH replaced by Anika; Tactical, besides the gruffness she even gets his tactical position.

    -Ian EEH replaced by Soji; Engineer really doesn't have an analog, he's pretty much replaced by the "Flower-Power" Deus-Ex ship-repair device, but I guess we can put it into Soji's hands and she'll serve that role double as science officer type .

    -And Mr. Hospitality? EHH replaced by Picard :lol:; Hospitality (yeah the opposite( though they both think they are running the show.

    And Elnor, as per usual - "Why didn't I get one!?" still has no replacement EH analogue:
    So for him introduce the as yet revealed Emergency-Armed-Security "Aramis"
    Make him the over-the-top dashing, romanticized, loyal, swashbuckling, Musketeer type, we know Rios collects weapons, so ( Armed-Security-Hologram "Aramis") can have phasers and phaser-rifle designed to look like vintage black powder pistols and muskets, and even give him a swashbuckling sword.
    Based on Cabrera's own Aramis.

    He has to show up eventually. And he can bond with Elnor, who we know reads Picards' gift of the Three Musketeers.
    That way everyone gets an analogues Rios Emergency Hologram companion.
    Then I would love to see an episode where each of the new real crew are all paired up with their analogues EH, for the day.

    Kilana2 wished to see Santiago Cabrera as a Musketeer. He played Aramis in the BBC's The Musketeers from 2013-16 - thus, the Beeb has already granted the wish. Beeb is what we call the BBC.

    I also wish him to see him playing soccer against a Neymar hologram (which avoids physical contact and Neymar avoids the wrath of his coach sending just his Avatar :D).

    Pretty hokey, could have used some better clips, and Rios has more PTSD and DID than ADD, still great fun combo!

    Curios about a post of mine that was edited/deleted?
    I was perusing the older discussions a page back, and noticed, a post where I ask Kilana2 who signs their posts Uru-Guru.
    If they (although from Germany) were also Uruguayan? As per their fun sig "Uru-Guru", and the convo had also tuned to Rios' love of Football.
    (FYI Charrúa is what the Uruguayan fútbol team (and countrymen) call themselves. So I whimsically asked in broken German as that is where Kilana2 indicates they are from) if they were Charrúa meaning if thay are from from Uruguay. Which Kilana2 clearly understood)
    You can still see my (now deleted )post in Kilana2's reply to me:
    Any reason why my post (question) was deleted?
    Not a big deal, I am just surprised and curious why :confused:?

    ----------------
    Edit:
    To not make the post a complete waste
    The apparent history of fútbol in Star Trek, of course there is a youtube vid (argentine) about it, and there is actually more fútbol in Trek than I thought. Not surprising Worf's association to it is outrageously tragic! LOL!:lol:
    But Rios is the first we actually see play, and bring the ball on-board.

    LOL! Will it explain why the need for Mr.Hospitality, and why he hates him so much?

    The person you need to ask is yourself:

    It looks like I have the option to undelete it, if you'd like.

    No it's fine, and thank you for checking.

    So anyone would have preferred ARAÑA COSMICA (aka Cosmic Spider) for La Sirena?

    Or with the shape (and what now reads to me as a web paint design), would have been to on the nose?

    I don't know. But John Jackson Miller will be pleased if we buy the book. No beans should be spilled before. There will certainly be a review thread about this book in the literature forum.

    I'm pretty sure we already know that. Mr Hospitality came with the basic installation of the ship (it isn't hard to understand why a transport ship would have a hospitality hologram as part of the crew). By accidentally selecting the self-scan option Rios had his own face (and memories) layered over the pre-programmed personality. Rios hates this one in particular because of the obsequious personality coming out of his own likeness.

    Worf's story is well-known. I guess neither David Luiz nor his poor opponent would have survived a head clash with Worf. Luiz looks appropriately bloodied like a warrior, though.

    Hallmark is going to have a La Sirena Christmas tree ornament coming out this year. I just saw an article about it on Trek Collective's website.

    La Sirena is my favorite Star Trek ship. I could never get attached to the Enterprises or any of the Starfleet ships because I knew if I lived in the Trek universe I'd have to join a rigorous military institution to command those ships, and even then they're not my property but Starfleet's.

    And La Sirena, with its army of holograms to maintain the ship, its own holodeck and medical bay and dining hall seems like a far more relaxed starship than any Starfleet vessel would be. I could realistically see myself owning such a civilian ship if Trek were real.
    You know how we have PC games like "Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator" where you can send an army of penguins against an army of dinosaurs or something? The 2nd season should open with Picard and the gang in the holodeck watching an army of Rioses fighting an army of Datas. :lol:

    What I don’t understand is, why is Rios channeling his inner Logan when meeting Picard for the first time?

    Interrupted by the Doctor (EMH) - in multiple roles of course.
