All of Voyager should have been like Year of Hell where we see the ship getting more and more destroyed as the series carried on. The ship was often way too calm. There also should have been more tension in Voyager between Starfleet and the Maquis as well. Voyager was a good idea, but I think it was poorly executed. It just gave the writers a chance to make up tons of useless races.

That WAS the original idea, but it kind of got lost between season 2 and 3. Once the doctor got his mobile emmitter, and seven came on board...that show went to hell.

Even the first season wasn't like that though. The Maquis quickly because accustomed to life on Voyager and followed orders. There were a few episodes where there was some conflict, but I thought they were poorly done.

So true, so true. A main problem with Voyager was that every interesting plot development would be quickly undone by the end of the story arc. You had Year Of Hell (timeline resets itself at the end of the episode), that episode where a bunch of bad stuff happens and then it turns out that it was all in a duplicate Voyager with a duplicate crew (a baby dies and they just replace it with a baby from the duplicate ship), the retarded series finale where Janeway travels through time to keep Tuvok from getting sick, the aforementioned Maquis tension disappearing within a few episodes, Janeway casually getting herself assimilated by the Borg and pulling off her infiltration scheme with little psychological consequence afterwards... the list goes on!

I think the worst of all was an early story arc with Paris. He was basically being an asshole and like getting into fights with Chakotay, and it was genuinely making his character interesting. Then they reveal that it was all part of an act to trick some aliens into thinking that there was dissension in the crew, and Paris was all like "jk lol" and everyone went back to being buddies. That kind of set the tone for much of the lameness that was to come...

The problem with Voyager was that none of the characters were endearing. In TNG, you cared about the characters, things that happened to them weren't just white washed by the next episode. They were flawed, damaged, that stuck with them. I hated how they made the doctor the Voyager equivalent of Data. The problem there was that it had been done already, never mind the fact that Data was at least tangible, the doctor could be taken out by destroying a fucking projector.

You could basically match the Voyager characters to their TNG equivalents. Chakotay was just Riker without a beard. Then they tried making him deeper by exploring his native american heritage, which just came off as hokey.

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

:rofl:

First time I have ever read someone say that about mr. tatoo.

The doctor had potiental but it was like once he got into his happy snappy opera mood, I just wanted to scream. Then when he wanted to leave voyager so he can sing for a species of Fuck tards..I just wanted to shoot myself. Where the Fuck did voyager get the storage space for the doctor to hold all his new programs and personalities??!?!

bah they should have made him real (transportor accident would be the easiest) and then allow some alien of the week kill him.

I am finally catching up on DS9. I watched bits and pieces of it here and there and liked it, but I never had the chance to see the whole series. I watched Trials and Tribble-ations yesterday and it was awesome. Probably my second favorite DS9 episode I have seen so far (I like Past Tense the best so far though The House of Quark is up there as well).

Majel Roddenberry died today.
She was the wife of Gene Roddenberry, and played Nurse Chapel on TOS, Lwaxana Troy on TNG/DS9, and the voice of the computer on TNG/DS9/Voyager, as well as the upcoming film.

The computer talks in the original series on occasion, and was done in her voice but more monotone. There's a youtube clip of it:

A lot of people in hollywood or famous don't like to have the public know they have something that bad..they just want their fans to remember how great they were while they were still healthy.

Accoring to Memory Alpha, the script for Wrath of Khan stated that Romulan Ale would make you "instantly drunk" upon drinking. The "Romulan Ale" that was sold at the Las Vegas Trek thing was 134-proof "mixture of Bacardi® rum, Everclear® alcohol, and Blue Curaçao liqueur, at equal amounts with no diluting liquid "
