    I don't want to see Chakotay on Picard, but I'll happily welcome his presence on the Seven of Nine and the Fenris Rangers spin-off show. :)

    I only want to see him if we see how Seven dumps his ass.

    Why would Seven get with Chuckles in the first place? Did they even interact on VOY?

    Poor chakotay. When Voyager was in the early stages of development and I heard his characters description, I was thrilled that we were finally going to have an earth human who practiced an earth religion as a regular on a Star Trek show. But then they turn his native American heritage in to a bit of a joke with embarrassing cliches and predictable parables. In the end, chakotay became a boring cardboard cutout due to both the writing and the performance. That said, I still welcome his presence on the theoretical seven of nine spin-off. Not as a regular, mind you. Just a one-off, to see how far apart the two characters have moved away from each other. Suppose Starfleet and the Fenris Rangers came into conflict over some issue or another, and Seven and Chakotay found themselves staring each other down by way of view screens and locked phaser banks. Who would blink first?

    Seven straight up murdered someone. Chuckles wouldn't just blink, he'd run away at warp ten and turn into a salamander.

    At warp 10, he turns into a salamander. At warp 11, he turns into Brian Brophy. :eek:

    I think Beltran himself wasn't all that happy about the direction his character went.

    Direct quote from Beltran; (on forgetting lines and if it had anything to do with his character or scripts)

    "It is hard to memorize lines that make you nauseous, but Pepto-Bismo really helped".

    On if he got keep his costume uniform:

    I wanted to keep the uniform, just so I could burn it! :guffaw:



    He shoots from the hip and says the funniest stuff.

    Respect is not a Champagne Tower.

    Just because previous generations of your family were full of Veuve (pun intended) , doesn't mean that effervescent glory trickles down to you.

    You may be fizzy too, but more of the SodaStream variety, than an venerable Grande Marque.

    Earn it, don't demand it, mon petite mousseaux

    Oh no, please no! I mean, I don't have to watch it, but there are so many interesting characters for spinoffs... Seven, for starters. Of course, that's why they'll probably kill her.

    Only because he’s expensive and I don’t think he has much interest in bringing him back.
    He’s also very busy.

    I saw him on Boston Legal make several fifth wall breaking remarks about having been a starship Captain in a former life. I think the exact quote was: "I used to Captain my own starship"...

    AND "Breaking the fifth wall". They are two different things.
