Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I may have commented on this before, who knows ... but I just watched the episode, and discovered that the Borg Queen was right ... kinda sorta ...

"Captain Janeway is about to die. If she has no future, you will never exist, and nothing that you have done here today, will happen."

Assuming nothing else changes, as soon as Voyager makes it home, after only a seven-year journey, Admiral Janeway's motives for going back in time disappear, and she never does.

- Tuvok is able to get treated.
- Seven and Chakotay are able to get married.
- Be'lanna and Tom still have their child.
- The crew as it is seven years on, gets home.

But therefore there is no reason for Admiral Janeway to be angst-ridden enough to go back in time to help Voyager get home. The only way this works is if we say that besides all of the Adm. Janeway interference, that the Voyager crew could have done the deed themselves, and they simply did. The only thing Adm. Haneway contributed was the damage to the Borg, which could be bypassed ...

Just some ramble-thoughts.

Re: ORV S1: About a Girl

^.^

I loved the ending to this episode, as the good guys don't win, which is a dose of realism that is generally missing in most US-based television or movie media. This is also why I loved The Empire Strikes Back, because the bad guys got a chance to be
victorious.

I spent most of my younger life watching stuff where at the end of the program, the good guys have won, and the problem has been resolved to satisfaction. Very quickly, I discovered that this was not how reality works, and so I REALLY started disliking children's cartoons, like GI Joe and so on.

This extends into more adult media, so I appreciate episodes of The Orville like this one, because in a series perhaps like Star Trek, the good guys might have won, whereas in The Orville, they really caused me to sit back and go "Huh, they didn't win." And that is okay folks.
