Well, there's one reason to wait for the film to come to video. This must
be an indication that the movie won't be that good. Too bad. Guess the best
TNG film will have been "First Contact". Wish these guys hadn't run out of
ideas.

I don't think Trek 10 will be the last Trek film. It's to big a
franchise for Paramount to ignore and there's only one cast currently
capable of holding Trek film and that's the TNG cast. I don't think
either DS9 or Voyager are strong enough to do a film. But thats just my
opinion!

Well Voyager's series has come to a natural conclusion. One would expect
that ship and it's crew to break up. Half of them would be getting
promotions and the other half would be joining Janeway on a prison planet
:-E

However a DS9/Voyager cast movie I could see happening if they got
desperate. But, oh boy, they would have to be desperate.

I was under the impression that the decision as to whether she'd be in the

Another thought: Sisko's line about coming back next year or maybe

where we see Sisko performing taks for the Prophets in the time line

I doubt it though - it would have to be an entirely fresh crew, which
is unlikely for a Star Trek movie.

I'd think so since the Adm. Janeway we saw was from an aternate
timeline that never happened when Capt. Janeway went ahead and used
the transwarp conduit to get home.

I expect they'll drop in some of the more popular DS9 and Vger cast,
as TNG regs price themselves out of the franchise. Trek films have
already featured DS9 characters (Worf, the Defiant) and Vger
characters (EMH, Bored Queen). Rumor has Kate Mulgrew and/or Jeri
Ryan doing a cameo in Trek 10.

Or they might start churning out Enterprise movies. It's rare
to do movies and a TV series at the same time, but if X Files
can manage it then why not Trek?

Absolutely right!!! I remember that episode where another Starfleet captain
that got stuck in the Delta Quadrant asks her if she had ever broken the
Prime directive and the bitch said no!!! I couldn't believe it when I heard
that cos I remembered the deal with the Borg. And more directly the deal
with the Kazon she did were she admitted at the end of the episode that they
should never have broken the prime directive. I don't mind her breaking the
directive cos I think it's a stupid rule but to lie about it afterwards was
totally off.

My guess : we know that the Voyager crew had become big
celebrities once the folks back home found out about their
situation. Starfleet couldn't face the publicity of a court
martial, and very much wanted to keep Seven of Nine friendly
to them because of all the Borg info she carries. They also
know that they can't possibly let Janeway near a captain's
chair again.

Solution : promote her to a desk job where she can tour around
giving lectures and interviews and never cause trouble again.

They do this in British politics alot. Promoting someone to a quango job
that pays more but actual has no power whatsoever. Bad way to get rid of the
chaff if you ask me but at least they aren't actually able to DO anything.

They used to chuck people up to the house of lords, but they're
messing that up somewhat these days. Ambassador is always a nice
one as well, because you can taylor it according to how much
you want to punish somebody by which country you give them.
Compare "Congratulations, you are now ambassador to the United
States of America..." with "Congratulations, you are now ambassador
to Syria..."

I don't know about that. A lot of the races they encountered were, for the
lack of a better term, buttheads: the Kazon were sexist and unworthy of
assimilation, the Vaudwaar were arrogant idiots (in fact that's what the
word means in Talaxian!), the Krenim with Red Forman from That 70's Show in
the driver's seat (Year of Hell) were obnoxious and overbearing, the Devore
(from Counterpoint) were "racist" against telepaths, the Malon were greedy
dumpster bastards, that spy race that look like coneheads were greedy spying
bastards, the Hirogen were scavenger Klingons without honor, the Pralor and
Kraveck robots from Prototype were master-killing biotches, Species 8472 and
the Borg aren't likely to win the congeniality awards any time soon. You
could hardly blame Janeway for serving all these races a big heaping can of
whoop-ass. I'm sorry, but the more digging up I did, the more I realized
that I'd have to strongly disagree with you. As many reviewers have said in
their reviews (most notably in Jim Delta Blues site), the Delta quadrant is
a tough place to be, this is not your usual Enterprise D armed to the teeth
and with tons of backup at hand making first contact with some backwater
world in the Alpha Quadrant. Heck, this isn't even the Defiant with Sisko
in command with the most heavily armed ship in the Federation and a cloaking
device serving the Jem Hadar a big can of whoop ass (at least in this case
you know who the enemy is and their capabilities). The Delta Quadrant is
like the Wild West and as far as things go, Janeway did good. And when you
consider the BS that Kirk got away with (and the BS Archer is now getting
away with), Janeway, should be made the Fleet Admiral.

It's what I would call the "Lethal Weapon" solution :) I recently saw
Lethal Weapon 4 on TV where they promoted Mel Gibson and Danny Glover to
Captains (that's 2 steps up from where they were) to get them off the force
so their precinct could be insured. Your suggestion is the so-called
politically correct one, and probably the one B&B would go for imo.

On species 8472 I would have to disagree. They were going to whoop the borg
and rid the galaxy of it's biggest problem and which side does Janeway
choose to be on? That's right the wrong one. 8472 were shown in a much
better light in a later episode and that just made the fuck up more glaring.

Well, what actually happened:

http://www.treknews.com/deltablues/scorpion2.html

...was that the Borg invaded fluidic space to attempt to assimilate Species
8472, their thinking being that they were the ultimate biological lifeform,
which would greatly add to their perfection. But when they got there, 8472
served them a major cube of whoop-ass. The problem was, 8472 was so pissed
that instead of just declaring war on the Borg, they decided in their
infinite wisdom that they would declare war on our entire non-fluidic
universe. Remember when the 8472 gave Kes the telepathic message, "The weak
shall perish?" and Kes tried to tell him that Voyager was not their enemy,
and Mr. 8472 basically said, "I don't care, we'll kill you anyway"? In
other words, 8472 was formally at war with Voyager. Since the Borg were
never considered officially at war with the Federation, in this case, the
lesser of two evils would actually be to make a deal with the Borg. In
either case, both the Borg and 8472 were enemies, so fighting either, one,
or both would have been no different, so therefore, Janeway is completely
absolved from any wrong-doing in the Scorpion situation.

Damn I'd love to be Janeway's lawyer! :)

You talk to ONE foot soldier and decide an entire war strategy on that
basis. Could have tried chatting some more I'd say.

Never officially at war??? I leave that one cos that's just such a stinker I
don't even need to comment further.

Let's just trust the story, when the species declared war on our universe as
a whole, then yeah, one foot soldier is pretty much enough to get the hint,
especially since it would be about as obvious as an airplane crashing into a
skyscraper.

> Never officially at war??? I leave that one cos that's just such a stinker I

There's an episode of one of the newer Trek shows, where two Starfleet
officers debate about whether or not we are indeed "at war" with the Borg,
perhaps someone here will remember it. It could even be one of the movies,
but since I don't completely remember and can't quote the reference, I there
cannot use it as a valid point of debate. So hopefully someone here can
bail me out of this one :)

In the Voyager episode "Hope and Fear", the Borg are described by Arcturis,
a member of Species 116, who were assimilated by the Borg. He said and I
quote, "The Borg Collective is like a force of nature. You don't feel anger
toward a storm on the horizon. You just avoid it." Straight from the mouth
of an assimilated species.

I don't know. Apparently the American's have a group called "Interns" that

Which is odd, because the Federation is not at war with the Borg
and never has been, that we know of.

Except for the small fact that Species 8472 was much more dangerous
than the Borg at the time, and had announced their intention to
"purge" our galaxy. I think that qualifies them as the more
dangerous.

And which later we find out they had been attacked by the Borg and only
intended to wipe them out. Janeway only asked one soldier who probably
didn't understand what was going on. A clear case of Leaping without
Looking.

No, 8472 decided that the Borg were representative of life in our galaxy and
therefore, the entire galaxy should be purged, not just the Borg.

If that's true then why did they agree a peace
treaty later on? Once they got over the fact
that Janeway had launched an unprovoked attack
on them, they were quite reasonable about things.

They were willing to negotiate *only after* they realized that Voyager had
the modified nanoprobe whoop ass torpedoes and they were no longer
"invincible".

This is twentieth century thinking, and not something
predominant to the twenty-fourth century. I would think equal justice
for all would mean just that, by the altruistic twenty-fourth century,
no?

And by who's prejudice are you claiming knowing this by?
Yours or theirs? In every case that you've described, Voyager and
Janeway were the trespassers. Did Janeway follow the Prime Directive
when it came to dealing with these races? Did she even use diplomacy
when she approached these races? More often times than naught, no --
she lead with her jaw expecting them to throw the first punch. And
when they did, she pulled all sorts of attitude then.

If you watch the episode, that's not what happens at all.
They knew that Voyager had the nanoprobes from Scorpion,
yet were unwilling to deal until Janeway showed that they
could trust her by disarming her weapons.

We often see such alturistic thinking on the part of Starfleet
Captains, but Admirals are rarely so nice. I can easily see
them pulling such a stunt to solve the Janeway problem.

I did, but that seemed like a tacked-on writing device to "make nice" just
so the writers could undo the mistake they made earlier.

Janeway is the least ethical of all the different series lead
characters - she's murdered crewmembers (Tuvix), she violated the Prime
Directive when it suited her and then got all sanctimonious when she
upheld it. They even culminated the series by having her violate the
Temporal Prime Directive just to resurrect a handful of individuals who
had sworn to uphold the TPD even if it resulted in death and handed
over temporally advanced anti-Borg technology to the Borg in the
process.

She exemplifies everything the Roddenberry Federation was NOT supposed
to be. If what she did was right the Federation isn't on any moral
high ground but just one more bully on the block.

But is Janeway really a problem? I still haven't seen evidence that makes
me stop and think and say to myself, hey yeah, that Katheryn Janeway is a
menage to the quadrant, Delta AND Alpha. She's one of the youngest to make
Captain, tried as best she could to go by the books while in the Delta
Quadrant - for a good contrast, look at Rudy Ransom of the Equinox - you
don't seen Janeway using the dead bodies of innocent aliens to speed up her
warp drive.

Someone here mentioned that Janeway is a trespasser. Well, usually what
happens when Voyager is trying to go home is that it encounters a race (say,
the Krenim or Delore), Janeway hails, explains the situation, that they are
a lost ship just trying to get home and would like passage if possible. If
they say no, she tries to make a trade or negotiation of some sort. The
response most of the time is either weapons fire from the Delta race, or
even more usual, is that they want to board the ship, strip search and anal
probe the entire crew, and then confiscate the vessel. Now if you're
Janeway and some ridgehead wants to go on your ship, rip it apart like the
car of a crack dealer on the US/Mexican-border and then take your ship by
force, what are you going to do? I don't know about you, but I'm going to
raise shields, lock phasers, and fire photon torpedoes, maximum yield, full
spread.

In short, Janeway did good in a bad situation and IMO, along with the death
blow to the Borg, comes out smelling like roses. See how freaked out Picard
got when Q transported the Enterprise to the Delta quadrant for a few hours?
He was begging and pleading with Q for mercy. Janeway went through that for
7 years gaining much more experience in that time than it a Captain would in
40 years in the Alpha Quadrant. She deserves the Admiral rank.

That's a very deep and difficult ethical question you bring up. Let me put
it to you this way: let's say a transporter accident happens - your wife
and daughter are beaming up from a planet surface and when the
rematerialize, they've combined into one person! What are you going to do?
Do you want your wife and daughter back? If you answer that you'd be trying
to make the moves on this new babe, I'm going to hurl. The point is, the
Tuvix issue is not as black and white as you think.

Just out of curiosity, when did the Temporal Prime Directive first get
mentioned? I recalled in DS9 there was an episode where some officers
interrogated Sisko in his office. But gee, that writer device came out of
nowhere. As for the Borg, they are dead. Game over.

GOOD! I hate to say it but IMO, Star Trek took a quantum leap (no pun
intended) in quality when Roddenberry died. Yes, he's the progenitor and
all, but even in the example of a business, the founder after a certain
period of time in many cases has to hand over the company to more capable
people to be CEO. His time was way overdue. His seed ideas are great, but
I put forward the proposition that his implementations of them are not as
high-quality.

But you do see her murdering people because she wants her
friends back. I don't believe that we have ever seen any
other captain participate in a cold blooded murder before.

Which is why you would make a bad captain. When faced with a
situation like this, what Janeway *should* do is go around!

Turn it around : suppose an alien ship turned up at *your*
borders and asked to pass through your territory. You tell
them that there will have to be a rigorous customs inspection,
and they reply by raising shields, locking phasers, and firing
photon torpedoes, maximum yield, full spread. What would you
think of the captain of that ship?

But Janeway's problem is not so much that she is a gung ho
loony half the time. It's more that when she isn't in the
mood to be a gung ho loony, she spouts off at everybody
else about Federation ethics and morality and how it's so
wrong to be a gung ho loony! The end result is that the
character comes off as so hypocritical that I actually
began to wonder if the writers were deliberately trying
to show a Starfleet captain who had mental problems.

She deserves a court martial and a jail cell.

Actually it is - they had accepted Tuvix as a crewmember, he
specifically stated he did not want the lethal procedure done, and the
Federation has only one infraction that will impose a death penalty.
If he disobeyed the commander's order he should have been dealt with
the way any crewmember would who disobeyed an order, i.e. with some
punishment, but that would not have involved a death penalty.
Unfortunately under Janeway it did.

If violating rules and regulations is justified by merely because it
would save lives then that would mean they could time travel back and
prevent every death, but that's is proscribed also. Oops, that's
right, not for Janeway.

No, they aren't. As has been stated before, the Borg Queen is
holographic in nature and exists throughout the Borg even though she
manifests in discrete locations at times (established in First Contact)
- destroying the one manifestation by Janeway was a setback, hardly the
end of the Borg. But we do know that the entire Borg has the new
shielding technology, the weapons tech and maybe even the cloaking
tech. Janeway is a traitor to the Federation for the sake of a her
trying to ease her own guilty conscious.

Hardly. The Roddenberry Federation was a lfoty goal to strive for, the
Janeway Federation is something that I could sympathize with
revolutionaries trying to overthrow it.

I disagree, going around is not an option. A trip of 70,000 light years is
already difficult enough, if they were to go around every race they
encountered, they might as well have warped to the outer edge of the
Southern spiral arm, cruised along the perimeter and navigated the
circumference of the galaxy until we reached the Western spiral arm.
Doesn't take a PhD in geometry to know that it would probably triple if not
quadruple the trip home. Once again I say, not an option.

If your example were to be accurate, then the "customs inspections" would
involve confiscating the ship and taking the crew as prisoners. That is not
how a civilized society operates, that is piracy.

I agree completely. I think in the case of the Devore empire, they executed
telepaths. If some race hailed me and told me they wanted to execute
members of my crew, yeah, I'd open fire. Just a guess but I'm sure there's
a Starfleet General Order that says something about the Captain being
responsibly for the safety and well-being of his/her crew.

Felt like a way to just bring the whole 847685758578579 debacle to a long
needed close.

Like 6 months would be so much of a hardship on a journey that's going to
take 70 odd fookin years. I couldn't agree with you more Graham :-)

They didn't have too. Only occasionally did they get asked to go round. Or
at least keep to a bloody set course that might have been a bit slow. But
nooo. Charge right through they did. Piss people off they did ... Sorry I
seem to have turned into Yoda for some strange reason. :-)

LOL. Exaggerating you are.

You remember those episodes were she plays the "evil" Janeway (both were
doctor episodes if I remember correctly). One where she had black gloves
etc. I couldn't tell the difference between her playing the bad Janeway and
the "good" (but actually as evil as fuck) Janeway. :-)

There definition of not feasible was pretty bloody tight. A couple of months
to go around and they would say no. On a trip that might take 70+ years that
seems kinda goofy. Besides the numbers they come up with for how long it
would take to go around were always ridiculously large. Never believed any
one of them. This is a quadrant where Kazon take 2 series to get away
from... Yeah right.

Was it established in the ep just how long it would add to the trip? ( No, of
course I don't remember. If I did, would I ask the question?)

It would be seriously difficult for that to be the
case. To make going around impossible you would need
a power which spread across Voyager's path such that
they were right acorss the plane of the galaxy at
right angles to Voyager's course, in every direction
through the whole extent of the galaxy. And then they
would have to extend far enough beyond the galaxy that
Voyager lacked the range to get out there and back.

There is no such power, or at least none was ever seen
in Voyager. The only people who came close were the
Borg, and they don't seem to have a very clearly
defined territory at all.

Janeway's threshold for committing an act of war
against another species could be as little as having
to add another 15 months to their trip. That's less
than a 2% increase on their expected journey time!
Think of it as having sombody smash your front door
down so they could walk through your house to get
to the next street, because it was 98 yards instead
of 100 if they did it that way.

That's true. But I remember somebody posting a HUGE analysis
of Scorpion on the NG, just after it aired, which made this
exact point - Voyager based their perception of the entire
species on one single telepathic contact with one soldier.
A soldier who was engaged in battling against a rutheless
enemy determined to assimilate his entire species.

Suppose a telepath read Picard's mind during his "I will
make them PAY..." talk with Lily on the E-E in "First
Contact". What impression would they have of Humanity,
based on that one single contact?

I agree that the writers probably intended 8472 as an
"evil uber-villain" species, and then changed their mind
later, but when you think about it the second version does
make more sense.
