    That and "Kirk's a liar". After 12 years or so of picking up Tribbles, Cyrano finds out that the actual penalty for trading in them is three months in the New Zealand penal colony. And he is so shocked he expires of a massive coronary on the spot. Leaving 300,000 or so tribbles for someone else to deal with.

    Yes, but Ziyal, Saavik and Captain Braxton also mysteriously changed appearances, yet were still easily recognized by everyone. Braxton's two actors look nothing alike, yet Janeway recognized him after only meeting him once before, very briefly, several years ago.

    I say that it's certainly feasible that Seska is Illeana, but not certain. Either way, it's moot. Legate Ghemor and Seska are both dead.

    Edit: Wrong topic.

    I just had a new potential explanation for an awkward issue...

    About 25 years before Voyager, the Paris family was having some difficulties with fertility. So, they went to a clinic for some assistance. The doctor on duty was long on narcissism and short on ethics, so he used illegal triphasic cloning techniques to create an embryonic duplicate of himself, which he placed in Mrs. Paris's womb. He had done a similar procedure with Mrs. Lacarno a few months before, and maybe one or two others as well (just in case Robbie MacNeil played an extra or two somewhere). He was careful to choose only couples with the right features, and hair/skin/eye color, so no one would suspect. Eventually, the doc realized that he would get caught if he kept on, and desisted. No investigation ever occured. Which explains why Tom Paris and Nick Lacarno looked and acted so similar: despite different upbringings, they were genetically identical.

    Seska's real family name is Seskal and she's related to the officer who joined Damar's rebellion and was killed in orbit of Cardassia Prime.

    The Kes we saw in "Fury" wasn't really her, but rather an amalgamation of all her 'negative' emotions given physical form (like Fenna in "Second Sight").

    I was just going to post something to that effect when I saw the thread title. Aside from ignoring Fury altogether that theory it's the only way to halfway make it acceptable.

    Agreed. They gave Kes a proper sendoff in Y4, there was no need to wreck it the way they did.

    Maybe Seska's real name was "Katell" the "sympathetic" Cardassian woman who gave her the bone transplant. It reminded me of how Garak hid his name Elim from Julian.

    This is frelling brilliant. It could also explain some inconsistencies with characters in early seasons, if some of Jetal's actions and dialogue were reassigned to other shipmates in the fake memories the Doctor was given.

    The novels have had Vorik and Taurik as twin brothers.
