It's interesting that a hologram had the most complex character

I vote for Janeway, mainly becasue she the only woman Captain of the series-franchise. The Doctor's good too, but he's kinda irritating for me same as Neelix.
THe second fave for me would be Tom Parish, he changed a lot during those years.

I'd have to go with the Doctor. Not to be confused with THE Doctor.

I voted for Seven but I can't believe I forgot about Tom Paris. Tom was great. Having to make a choice between them all though, made me realize that despite my loving the show I wasn't very in love with most of the characters. There are a lot of "didn't bother me" classifications, but Tom and Seven I actually liked. The doctor could be annoying at times... somewhat like McKay. Tuvok, Janeway, Torres, Kes all fall into the "didn't bother me" category. Chakotay was a yawn and Harry was a little too wide-eyed innocent.

August 3rd, 2005, 08:06 AM
Had to go with Seven on this one. She was just so straight forward - often with very humorous results (kinda like Data). This line was the clincher, I think, when she's talking to B'lanna about her off duty *cough* activities with Tom.

"There is no one on Deck Nine, Section 12 who doesn't know when you're having intimate relations."

That just about killed me. Loved Seven. Loved, loved, loved her. :)

"When a series of events strands Voyager in a Nebulae, Neelix must detonate an ion flux resonator and put feelings for a crewmember aside."

"When the Voyager is hijacked, Chakotay must negotiate with the Borg and overcome a fear of the dark."

And my personal favorite...

"When the Delta Flyer crashes, Harry Kim must perform a risky move and perform a risky move."

What struck me is how POOR most of the characters in Voyager were. Janeway was a cartoonish rendering of Kirk with a dash of Picard. Chakotay was a dud. Ensign Kim was a dud. Tuvok was a dud. Kes was a dud. Neelix was just annoying. That's more than half the cast right there!

When I contrast that to, say, Deep Space Nine, where I'm hard pressed to call anyone a dud (and if I did, it would be Cirroc Lofton's "Jake Cisco", who just happens to be the BEST child character I've seen in a science fiction series prior to LOST). Even their regular GUEST characters were more interesting than most of Voyager's crew.

After all, who would you rather eat lunch with? Garak or Tuvok? Ducat or Kes? Kai Winn or Maj Kulla (sp?)? In all cases,the more interesting lunch for me would be with the DS9 characters.

Given that Star Trek Enterprise ALSO had a lot of weak or poorly developed characters, I'm suspecting that weak characters are Bermaga's trademark. Braga's "Threshold" has only ONE interesting character by my standards so far (Spiner's), so if there's a dearth of depth in "Threshold" then it will be three for three on the dud parade for Braga.

The Doctor without doubt. Wonderfully snarky and sarcastic, easily the most developed character on the show.

May 24th, 2007, 09:22 AM
Finally finished watching Voyager. I thought that Tuvok, Harry Kim, Kes, and the Doctor were all quite good. In the end, however, and after much debate, Harry Kim eventually won my vote.

Having to make a choice between them all though, made me realize that despite my loving the show I wasn't very in love with most of the characters.

I had this same experience. Going up and down this list I was under-whelmed. Most of the characters didn't bother me, and most (maybe all) had some good episodes, but no one really stood out. They were just kinda "ehhh" for me.

The characters I liked the best were probably Harry Kim, Chakotay, Seven of Nine, and The Doctor (I voted for Doc). But even among them, Harry didn't have enough episodes for me to really like, The Doctor could be very annoying at times, Seven of Nine was almost always wearing a skin-tight suit, which bugged me (and she looked hotter in a science officer uniform anyway), and Chakotay's character was far too subservient to Captain Janeway.

I really liked that episode where Captain Janeway goes crazy and tries to kill someone (Equinox part 2 I think it was called), and Chakotay defies orders and goes and saves the guy. THAT is what I wanted from him. Someone who was willing to stand up for himself, and his former crewmates. Instead he whimped out most of the time:(. That displeased me.

Another vote for the Doc. The Trek writers certainly knew how to make their less-than-human characters, whether android or hologram, more human than most.

The Doctor of course! I loved him and still enjoy Robert Picardo in Stargate. You can't beat the Doctor in my opinion;-)

Lady Vaako
June 21st, 2007, 09:37 AM
I voted for Janeway. She was a kickass captain and she brought a dimension the job that only a woman could bring. Second would be Seven and then the Doctor even if he could be slightly annoying and totally full of himself at times.:)

General David Niemi
July 2nd, 2007, 05:13 PM
Barclay! Then Q, then the Doc (Robert Picardo is good in Stargate SG1 as Richard Woosley :))

Ozzy O'NeiLL
August 28th, 2007, 08:02 AM
Mine is Robert Picardo as The Doctor, with Captain Janeway as a close second. Without them there would be no Voyager.

Chakotay was pretty 'tresting too, and somehow I always secretly liked the idea of a Janeway/Chakotay ship. Can't help it...

Other than those, I always had a thing for Kes, but not Neelix.

Seven of Nine was a bit overused near the end imo, and I felt she was more there for the sex appeal or something... but what the hey.

Overall, a very good cast. :)

MB.Eddie
August 28th, 2007, 08:24 AM
My top 3 favourites are the EMH doc, Seven of Nine and B`Elanna Torres. I'll vote for the Doc, as he was probably the most consistent.

August 28th, 2007, 08:41 AM
its close between Tom Paris and Reg Barclay, mostly biased because i have a friend named Dom Parris, and my real name is R. Barclay, but i've had to go for Paris.

Lonnie
August 30th, 2007, 03:40 PM
I voted for B'Elanna. I just loved her, especially her fights with Seven.

Seven, Voyager's eye candy. Another one of my favorite characters, although I really hated those damn biosuits! (except for the dark red one *cough*.....)

Kathryn rocks, and so does the Doctor and Kes. Oh, and Harry of course. (when I think of Harry I always have to think of this scene with Seven *g* "Take off your clothes." His expression is priceless xD "Don't be alarmed, I won't hurt you." lol)

Tom and Chakotay are the only ones from the VOY crew that I don't like. Although I have to admit that I liked J/C. I still don't get the whole C/7 thing they threw in near the end. oO

I voted for the doctor. He was very funny, and had lots of depth for a simulation who was only supposed to work for a day or two.

This (http://www.firsttvdrama.com/funstuff/voyagen.html) was pretty darned funny too.

"When a Shuttlecraft crashes, Chakotay must escape the Vidiians and avoid an alien hunting party."

I'm sure that was a late season plot.

Hey!

I thought I'd mention that I've finished my university paper about a comparison between Captain Janeway, President Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Weir from SG: Atlantis, and I must say I'm quite happy with the result.

I got a few ideas to include her from this thread, and I felt I should let you in on the fun ;) So before I start retelling the entire paper, I'd like to invite you to read it, so PM me if you want me to mail it to you. That way I might even get to talk to some of you more, as I'm not on here much, and I don't have much (read: almost no) fellow sci-fi fans, sadly, so be my guest.

Cheers!

I was torn between the Doctor and 7/9... but I had to vote for Kes. The catsuit, the psychokinesis, the hair... Mmm. :D Also, I loved how her character evolved over the first 3 seasons. She came into her own, she went from being a child into a capable [and beautiful] woman.

Coulda done without that specific wife (Torres was not my favorite character; I would have preferred literally any other female lead, past or present) or the relapse (I hated 30 days, especially the fact that Janeway came down so hard on him when just about every other senior staff member betrayed her in exactly the same way, yet they were not demoted).

Believe me, they could have done WAY more with him. They did a lot with him in the first 3 seasons, but after that, he just sorta became the defacto troublemaker who rarely had a chance to shine. The light was too busy shining on Janeway, Seven, and the Doctor.

Seriously, name one ep after Season 3 where he saved the day. The only one I can think of is "Dark Frontier" when he flew the Flyer against the Borg and was key in Janeway's showdown with the Queen.

I loved how Paris stood by Torres [Lineage], even when he didn't know who she was, much less that her unborn child was his [Workforce]. Natural Law [ugh] had him fly to the rescue, literally. :) I'm sure there're other instances I'm missing, but Tom just got happy.
As for Tom betraying Janeway and trying to do good for the artificial environment... Sure, Tuvok and everyone else on the senior staff should have been demoted and imprisoned for giving up the federation database for that spacial folding technology [Prime Factors], but, by the time Tom went all Abyss, he had become a trusted member of the crew, making his betrayal even more hurtful.
Sidenote: He's got my respect just for re-writing the Doctor's holonovel and giving us the wonderful world of the USS Voyeur [Author, Author ]. :)

I have to admit, she did grow on me. Season three Kes is probably my favourite.

But I suspect part of it was just finding the Kes/Neelix relationship...ikky. For want of a better word. :rolleyes: It creeped me out a little, and I wasn't terribly fond of him at the best of times.
After she'd ditched him, though...yeah. I think I could've grown to like her more if she'd stayed.

I guess how I hated that Paris could never have an episode to himself. Any episode that "featured" him almost always had Torres heavily in it as well. And when she wasn't in it, he was in trouble.

Natural Law [double ugh] had him save the "native" inhabitants from the other native inhabitants. That was thrilling (sarcasm). However, I will say that the Paris arc of that ep. is, IMO, it's only redeeming quality.

Ahhh... You forget Chacotay stealing a shuttle (just like Tom) in "Maneuvers" (Season 2) to go after Seska. He also stole the quantum resonance oscillator and violated orders. Janeway's reaction: No big. Don't do it again.

The Doctor pretty much committed treason in "Flesh and Blood" (Season 7, which is far after they'd become so close as a crew) to help his holographic buddies. He disobeyed orders (just like Tom) and even gave Voyager's shield freqs to an enemy combatant (Tom never endangered the ship). Janeway's reaction: No big. Don't do it again. I won't even take your holographic emitter for say, 30 days, because it's apparently a good thing that he can be fallible just like everyone else.

You already mentioned Tuvok, but he was accompanied by Torres.

Who does some no-nos in an ep you haven't seen yet, so I won't spoil it :).

Lord, I could write an entire essay on what Seven of Nine got away with...

Neelix tried to steal from the ship and got involved in a murder (inadvertently) so that he could get a map. Janeway's reaction: No big deal. Don't do it again.

So, what was so egregious about Paris's stunt in "Thirty Days" that warranted both a demotion and brig time, especially in light of what everyone else has gotten away with?

Tom's story was the highlight, definitely. A comedic episode about his trials and tribble-ations at the hands of the driving instructor would have been hilarious, cgi-filled, and featured no more than 5 minutes of 7/9 befriending a native girl.;)

Wasn't that to go get his baby mama? No... that was to get a traitor who then made herself 'his' baby mama. He was the 2nd in command. Putting him in irons might have led to a Maquid revolt... Which i would have really enjoyed, but still...

The poor Doctor had to choose between his friends and his 'family' or race. He chose wrong, of course... While I'm sure confining him to sick bay would be an effective torture, you don't want the man/machine administering your cortical stimulation to be mad at you and have cabin fever.;)
You already mentioned Tuvok, but he was accompanied by Torres.
I believe I said, "Tuvok and the rest of the senior staff." ;)
Who does some no-nos in an ep you haven't seen yet, so I won't spoil it :).
Why, thank you. Though now I KNOW that there're no-nos.:)
Lord, I could write an entire essay on what Seven of Nine got away with...
I can sum it up in a single episode title and word: 'Prey'. Murder.
Neelix tried to steal from the ship and got involved in a murder (inadvertently) so that he could get a map. Janeway's reaction: No big deal. Don't do it again.
We don't care for this Neelix.
So, what was so egregious about Paris's stunt in "Thirty Days" that warranted both a demotion and brig time, especially in light of what everyone else has gotten away with?
Can't think of one other than they thought he was past such juvenile acts and he really let everyone down.
No argument here. I laughed and laughed and laughed...Ok. You started me laughing again. Had to rewatch it. :D

I have to admit, she did grow on me. Season three Kes is probably my favourite.

But I suspect part of it was just finding the Kes/Neelix relationship...ikky. For want of a better word. :rolleyes: It creeped me out a little, and I wasn't terribly fond of him at the best of times.
After she'd ditched him, though...yeah. I think I could've grown to like her more if she'd stayed.

I liked her too... but no they have to replace her with 7 of 9 @[email protected] I don't know what I feel about 7 of 9. Why do they have to make her boobs so round and big? Even she said that it was so overly dramatic. HAHA

Don't get me wrong, I loved Janeway, But the doctor really made the show for me. He was such a likable, and fun character. I think he grew more then anyone else over the 7 years. Which is funny, because he's not even really alive.

The doctor sure did got a lot of storyline for a hologram. I just finished watching 'Renaissance' - yes, another episode about 'The Doctor.' It's ridiculous how he was not punished for his foolish act. He should never have been given ECH. His character has his charms but some of the things they have written for him is so overly ridiculous. And I love how people never bothered to discipline the doctor for his wrong doing, instead just ignored it and accepted him. Yikes.

I loved the relationship between Janeway and Kes. It was the little girl who idolizes her mother and the mother who opens her daughter's eyes to new possibilities and options for personal growth. Of course, that relationship continued with Janeway and 7/9, who was the rebel teenaged daughter torn between wanting to be like and hating her mother.

i think chakotay was a great character and had so much potential... i think the reason that he was sidelined is because they didnt what to over shaddow janeway as star treks first female captain... so they kinda lost that balance they had between captain and first officer in the other series...

which is a shame because janeway was also a great character, and the dynamic those two had was well written, its my fave character relationship of the franchise...


I don't think he was in love with her, they were just really good friends.

Thinking about them two in a relationship seems a little bit creppy too.


chakotay definately had feelings for janeway...

in resolutions [s2] chakotay was embarrased to tell her the story of what she means to him... there was a definate awkward moment when he was giving her the neck rub...

and then in shattered janeway asks chakotay if they were more then friends, because she got that vibe, but he said that they have never crossed that line...

i reckon chakotay was jealous when janeway was dating the hologram in fair haven and spirit spoke... i also think janeway was somewhat jealous if not merely offput when she found out -

chakotay married 7 in endgame...

and those are the more obvious moments off the top of my head...

it would have made much more sense to me if chakotay had been paired with janeway then 7... granted they werent going to do that because janeway is the captain... but chakotay and 7 just didnt make any sense...

Yes, see the doctor/seven I would have understood. They had so many scenes together and great chemistry.

yep that was why chakotay and 7 ended up together out of nowhere...


Robert Beltran: I remember having a conversation with her and I said I guess now that you're with Brannon, there won't be any Chakotay/Seven of Nine kissing scenes. We can throw that idea out the window. She said, "I'm going to tell him what you said." I said, "Tell him. Tell him. Maybe he'll take me up on the challenge." It took a long time.

braga wanted to prove to robert he wasnt jealous of his then girlfriend kissing robert on screen - who lets face it is HOT ;)

it was however stupid to create a relationship out of it... as a stand alone episode 7 experimenting with romance with a holographic chakotay would have satisfied the dare without creating feelings in chakotay that simply didnt exist...

but i think most trekkers will agree that the chakotay/7 pairing was not a smart one...

there was practically no interaction between chakotay and 7 in 4 years... in fact when she came on board he didnt like nor trust her... and while he came to realise she wasnt going to betray them they never really established that he considered 7 one of his friends let alone that there was any romantic interest...

One of Voyager's greatest strengths throughout all its 7 seasons was its characters. The only character I actually didn't particularly care for was Seven of Nine--otherwise, they were all likeable.

definitely the doctor. he has a depth of character that isn't normally seen on voyager. the closest we saw to his character development were seven and Tom paris, who are tied for #2 for me.

not to mention robert picardo is one of my favorite actors..

Torres, then Harry but he never really got any development could have been a lot better.

Paris was annoying with his early 20th century shtick, the controls on the flyer what the hell were they thinking could have at least been modern switches, dials and levers.

For me it was seven of nine.
The guys in the show were basicly...hm...toned down more than any other Star Trek. Ensign Kim ...always and ensign never a Lieutenant.
Chakotay was passive, never wanted conflicted.
Tuvok...loyal as a puppy (to Janeway)
Paris ...part time bad boy full time whipping boy.
Neelix...cook....(hmmm. But I like him notheless.) He was modern.


Seven was the most manly...assertive direct rebelious.
And she looked really good doing it.

The Doctor. But Paris is a close second.

I hate Seska....what a despicable evil woman. I'd have no problems beaming her inside a solid wall.

I was enraged when the daft voyager crew didn't also demand her along with Chakotay when he went to destroy the transporter module and got caught. The Kazon leaders had no choice and would have agreed in an instant. What a bunch of idiots. :rolleyes:

Voyager's premise was falsely advertised including the character bio's when they did pre-air publicity which they spent a lot of money on. when Voyager ended the only character bio that came through was the 'EMH' who was the most interesting, he evolved from good character arcs and had depth.

But I find it odd that Seven of Nine changed greatly but has not garnered as much favor among the fans here. I mean Janeway is the DOC's competition, which is odd for me because I've heard alot displeasure for her as a captain.

But with Seven and the The Doctor, I've heard that most believe they were extremely over used.

apparently they let her go in the middle of shooting in favor of Kate Mulgrew (runner up) because Genevieve didn't have the stamina to do 8, 9 scenes a day, keep in mind her imdb profile says she is 67 years old now.

I want to re-emphasize on my last post like I said Voyager's premise was falsely advertised it was supposed to share some of the Battlestar Galactica makeup but ended up being something completely different i'll quote Ronald Moore.


Before it aired, I was at a convention in Pasadena, and [scenic illustrator, technical consultant Rick] Sternbach and [scenic art supervisor, technical consultant Michael] Okuda were on stage, and they were answering questions from the audience about the new ship. It was all very technical, and they were talking about the fact that in the premise this ship was going to have problems. It wasnít going to have unlimited sources of energy. It wasnít going to have all the doodads of the Enterprise. It was going to be rougher, fending for themselves more, having to trade to get supplies that they want. That didnít happen. It doesnít happen at all, and itís a lie to the audience. I think the audience intuitively knows when something is true and something is not true. VOYAGER is not true. If it were true, the ship would not look spick-and-span every week, after all these battles it goes through. How many times has the bridge been destroyed? How many shuttlecrafts have vanished, and another one just comes out of the oven? That kind of bull****ting the audience I think takes its toll. At some point the audience stops taking it seriously, because they know that this is not really the way this would happen. These people wouldnít act like this."

Ronald Moore also went on record saying he wasn't allowed to write what he wanted to write or his fellow writers from Deep Space Nine Michael Taylor and Bryan Fuller, the staff were treated poorly and there was a lot of inner politics from the powers to be even the actors didn't see eye to eye Kate Mulgrew thought Robert Beltran was unprofessional because he went on record saying he was tired of the repetitive scripts and cardboard characterization, if you want an example on what cardboard characterization is watch the 2 part episode Year of Hell which showcases what Voyager should of been except the characters are still "cardboard" compared to the Enterprise episode Damage which is under similar circumstances. Brannon Braga was no Shakespeare either, his creative vision ultimately led to one of science fictions most recognizable villains the Borg turn into fairy's. in my opinion the show was a complete disaster from the bottom up.

I picked Chakotay, so loved his character. I would have picked Janeway too, she was awesome and Kate Mulgrew is spectacular in person.

Out of that list. Seska, since shes on there. I loved her character. i thought it was really well done.

Out of the main crew, Captain Janeway, in the first 1-3 seasons. Something changed about her. Shes not as good in later seasons than she was in the first few.

Overall my favorite character is Tom Paris. He was a great character.

I heard she walked off the set.
Couldn't take the schedule.

I'm still wondering why Mulgrew wasn't the first choice.
