    Default Life changing experience for Chloe?

    Do you think Chloe's hallcinations of her dead father will motivate her to get involved more?

    When Chloe and her father where on the observation deck in FLT her father said somthing along the lines of: "We always thought you would explore the world...and here you are drifting through the universe, exploring galaxies."

    And at the end, before her hallacination subsided, her father remided her of this. Anyone else think this will give Chloe the motivation to have a greater purpose on Destiny?

    Any thoughts?

    yes, I think she's become even more involved (although I tend to think that she's already making quite the effort and she's always asking what she can do to help - ie: in Pain, walking down the hallway with Young). Chloe, of all of them so far, appears quite unjaded by the things they've seen and has a sense of wonder still. I think the experience with her father is only likely to strengthen that

    It'd be nice if she gets a bit 'nuttier'.
    (kinda like Crichton in FS: started off relatively peaceful/confused, being a civilian and all, then he became more 'involved', and even started packing a gun and having a pretty long list of kills, and losing some sanity along the way )

    As long as the trauma inflicted by the recent events (death of dad, abducted by smurfs, almost left behind for good, hallucinating about dad, etc.) are shown to affect her, I guess that will be fine, too.

    Tho' some sanity loss, IMHO, would be cooler.
    (because showing a character recover and become stronger from that would be, IMHO, quite epic)

    "Cthulhu fhtagn!"
    (heh, the last episode kinda reminded me of 'Event Horizon'...would be nice if they went w/ something like that for an episode or two )

    I think she'll think twice about being BFF with Eli the snitch. I think Eli enjoyed pulling on her arm. It's like, yes! I finally get to touch her. lol

    I *LOVED* Christopher MacDonald in this ep. He was far from the hard-assed, yet heroic Senator he was in the pilot. Makes me all the more sad that he couldn't be a regular.

    As for Chloe, I think she already tries to help out but this may prompt her to find a specialty to pick up.

    I think that is a complete mischaracterization of Eli. I think he is evolving into a proud and self sufficient person, the fact that he has been pulled out of everything he knows not just ONCE but TWICE in such a short time... The military types, the ones who signed up for the SG program and all that, they are dealing alright but they knew what might happen. Then you have Chloe and Eli who really should never have been there.

    I think that characterizing Eli as pathetic and a bit stalkerific and creepy doesn't give him enough credit.

    I would really rather not see anyone change a lot. I don't want another 'Daniel Jackson' syndrome where they entirely leave where they started, I think people are people and radical changes to personality and outlook are rare.

    As far as Chloe becoming more involved in ship operations, she asks if they can help and all. She could become more proactive, doing more, acting as a 'free agent' more than just finding out if she's needed.

    Perhaps. But the real benefits will be psychological. Chloe had her father wrenched away from her right when she needed him to be an anchor for her. Now she got a chance to deal with those issues. She got to see her father again. Far from making her nuttier, I think she'll be more stable.

    Totally, this is true. However, I think he'll wait for the right one. Being a geek there is a point in time where sex becomes less a part of your life until it is brought to the surface. Until then things seem normal and such... Then, wham, you realize how alone you are. I think we are waiting for that from Eli.

    Chloe has been trying... to do her share. However, she has the least amount of useful skills of anyone on board Destiny. She wants to help. She wants to pull her own weight. I don't get folks who say she's useless or doesn't otherwise contribute.

    She has asked to be put to work doing something, anything, but other than some manual labor (eg. picking fruit in "Time") and being the default body-swap person, no one has come forward and said, "Here's something you can do every day which will be of benefit to the running of the ship."

    Can anyone suggest some sort of work for Chloe? There's a good fifty or so "no name" scientists, techs and soldiers who don't appear to do much of anything, although they are supposedly doing something related to their chosen fields. Should Chloe be put to work doing something one of these people could do, only not as well as they?

    Someone will have to find a use for Chloe. She is not Neelix. She should not have to go around creating jobs for herself in order to stay on board. Perhaps, once they gain control of Destiny's systems she can get a job like this character: http://l.yimg.com/eb/ymv/us/img/hv/p..._weaver/gq.jpg

    regards,
    G.

    LMAO... Yes I suppose she could... You are right, she is not Neelix with a wealth of odd job experience to draw from. Myself, I think her best position has not been created yet, it they ever need a diplomatic sort she would be it. Her family and life in politics she knows the art of compromise and reading people. I think she also could get into the whole solidifying the crew concept, mediating between the two factions, bring them together. I'd love to see that.

    I'm wondering about her position as "Wray" - as in, the civilian go between should something ever happen to Wray. It's clear that Young doesn't trust Wray, but I believe he has far more faith in Chloe. Just as Young goes to Eli because he doesn't trust Rush, is Young having Chloe fill that same position? As far as diplomacy goes, Chloe is far more suited.

    Chloe could serve as an intermediary between Young and Wray, and possibly even with Rush. The thing of it is, is that supposed to be her "job"? She gets up every morning, gets ready to face the day and waits for some issue to come up for which she can serve as an intermediary? That would get old kinda' quickly.

    She still needs something which she can do to feel useful, not be the marriage counselor to the Young/Rush/Wray threesome. The writers have to cook something up which she can do on a regular basis, and then as needed she can play mediator.

    regards,
    G.
