If you asked me what legacy reunions I would most like to see in Star Trek, the Chakotay-Janeway reunion would be near the bottom of my list, way down there with the Geordi-Leah Brahms reunion and the Yar-Armus reunion.

Voyager has grown on me over the years, and I can appreciate how the Janeway-Chakotay relationship progressed. Not sure what the writers were thinking trying to put Chakotay and Seven together at the very end … that’s like TNG trying to make a couple out of Worf and Troi. It felt forced.

Ya know though … there are a couple Trek meme groups on the book of face … if you’re good at creating memes, perhaps you can create a Yar-Armus meme reunion … that might get a few laughs.

I never liked the Chakotay / Seven relationship as I felt it was forced but I would like to know how it ended and subsequently if he and Janeway grew closer after that.

Perhaps Prodigy will answer that question once Janeway finds Chakotay? A simple line of dialogue about how it ended would suffice. I get why PIC never addressed it, it’s likely none of Seven’s new crewmates never knew Chakotay.


Chakotay: “That Borg chick was just too high maintenance for me.”

Janeway: “Well the way she tells it, it wasn’t just that you bored her to death, but the last straw was you calling her ‘Kathryn’ in bed… That upset her so much she ‘went over to the other team’ ”


Sisko / Jake FTW

Hee hee, a Pic of Shatner’s James T Kirk on the banner. I see what you did there!

Heh! I asked myself “What is a Star Trek episode in which Kirk is very annoyed?” and immediately “The Trouble with Tribbles” came to mind. This was a fun image to make.

Yeah, great job on getting that in — thanks!

HAHAHA, well done!

“And somebody… close that door…”

I think the best fix is to reach out to Shatner and include him in something for the 60th Anniversary. Alex Kurtzman or JJ Abrams or Terry Matalas if he gets a show can make it special. Let’s face it the 50th was a total botch job. Hopefully they do the right thing this time around.

I don’t think they see anything that needs fixing, really. And I don’t think Shatner is that invested, either! It’s a fun scandal for fans but that’s about it.

Therein lies an issue. If they don’t see a need to honor the franchise better for the next anniversary…
Maybe that doesn’t include Shatner but the 50th was a disaster. It was like they were ashamed of the history.

Just saw that SNW got an ASC cinematography nomination for episode 10 (the one I remember looking like it was just shot at a contemporary smalltime town.) Am really amazed (though it is nice Pic’s Jon Joffin got a nom for SCHMIGADOON … that stuff looked pretty good, the opposite of how I felt about his PIC work, which seemed to be shot for a Braille audience more than a visual-based one.)

On the subject of a trek movie … I think this story proves Hawley would have delivered the goods with his take. I think these comments about what he is doing with the ALIEN TV series shows he has his head on straight when it comes to what makes something work. hollywoodreporter has the story
