# Me and the missus have watched the entirety of TNG and DS9 lately
but then I just couldn't be arsed with the first 3 seasons of Voyager, so we switched to Farscape instead

I might put Seven-era Voyager on afterwards

# I've got all of Voyager, and love it.
Yes, Chakotay's a fucknut, and Janeway's a terrible Captain, but there's enough decent sci-fi in there to keep me interested. The "Tuvix" episode as a Sci-Fi conundrum is hard to beat.

# It an unpopular vote
But I'm with you.

Voyager's unpopular I mean, not you, I mean I bet you've loads of friends, and all that

The Doctor is easily one of the best characters in Trek, even when Doctor-centric episodes don't actually always serve him well. Ditto Harry Kim. Many great characters frequently let done by poor scripts... but yeah then something like Tuvix comes along and shows total awesomeness.

# I hated "Tuvix"
not because it was a bad episode as such, but every single one of the fuckers should have been on trial for murder, or court-martialled for breaching the prime directive at the very least.

They EXECUTED Tuvix to get their two dead friends back.

# They could have cloned him
And then ripped the other two apart.

Of course, logic beats a decent script.

# Yes, but a clone is a copy
Tuvix himself would still die. There'd just be a Tuvix v2.0 following him up. The same memories, etc., sure, but the last thing Tuvix proper would know is dying.

# instead of the bullshit last episodes of voyager we got when they returned home
I totally agree, they should have got the ticker-tape parade, but on their way to court.

Not just Tuvix - almost every third episode they do something morally questionable or wholly against the prime directive. I don't hate the show for having them make hard and sometimes bad choices, but it makes it lame show for not having the guts to have some consequences.

They even promote her to Admiral! Fuck...

Promoted to her level of incompetence.
