    "Who Mods the Moderator?" is my favorite episode of Star Trek.

    To coin a phrase, "Oh, boy."
    Rather a pity that there's no "LMGTFY" for Memory Alpha.

    From Memory Alpha:
    More to the point, Grat (from ENT:"Detained") was played by Dean Stockwell, Scott Bakula's old co-star from Quantum Leap.

    Maybe Janeway likes younger men, she did carry children with Tom Paris when they got Salamanderized.

    And Chakotay and the others didn't bother to recover the baby Salamanders to be De-Evolved back to being human.

    And Janeway at that time was quite beautiful, I wouldn't be surprised if Harry was her side fling.

    All those lonely nights on VOY, and Chakotay wasn't there to keep her company in bed.

    Harry could've been Janeway's secret "Friends with Benefits" on the down low.

    Janeway did hand-pick Harry to be a Senior Staff member & "Chief of Ops" straight out of StarFleet Academy and part of the Senior Staff, you don't do that with just anybody.

    And she could've been disappointed/jealous that Harry fell in love with that one Alien girl on that Varro Generational Ship.

    Janeway knows what could happen if word gets out that she's having sexual relations with a direct subordinate, so things gotta be kept quiet and Harry can be surprisingly good about keeping secrets.

    ^_-

    I never understood spikey heels? They just seem like bad fundamental design and are prone to break while Platform shoes are more sturdy and reliable and can do the exact same thing as spiked heels.

    Why buy any shoe that is more likely to easily break and twist your ankle?

    Ladies, help me out here? Am I crazy?

    Also more unnecesary vertical travel.

    The Gundam franchise regulary implements this with moving hand rails attached to the walls that tug a user around a Zero-G Hallways.

    I wonder if Star Trek would ever want to implement it.

    Somehow these two posts seem to go together.

    And all I've ever been able to figure out about spike heels is that some people get off on discomfort.

    Not that I remember. They seemed to get around pretty well on their own.
    Platform shoes are flat. They don't round the calves the way heels do, and are less attractive. I say this as a guy.

    There are "High Heeled" Platform shoes where the toes are equally angled downwards at a steep angle, but the only difference is the structure of the back part of the heel is a nice giant solid chunk of shoe insead of a spindly point that is prone to breakage.

    From the front, they look exactly the same, it's from the sides and back that they look different, but structurally, they are superior.

    I was referring to getting off on other people's discomfort, although I suppose masochism could also be involved. (I suddenly find myself thinking about an old joke for which the punchline is "Beat's me.")

    Unless, of course, you'd like to try the cruel shoes.

    If they were smart, they'd do a heel-face turn.

    Especially if you wear them with combat fatigues and a helmet.

    Heels and catsuits, though, that's just Star Trek?

    Your comments above about Janeway and Kim make me say, yes, you *are* crazy, but in the best way possible. :hugegrin:

    Spiky heels are for looking sexy. That's it. I haven't worn them in decades, but I also haven't been capable of looking sexy in decades. :lol:
