    Well, they've already established that changing gender is something that can happen in regeneration... so no, that's not a big deal.

    I think the gender of the next actor (besides causing some problems for my choice of AVI) isn't really the problem the series has right now. I think the big problem has been some of the scripting going back to Matt Smith's last season.

    So let me get this straight. You are okay with this show about a guy flying around in a magic box that is bigger on the inside, and can change his appearance... but you turn him into a chick and you lose your stuff?

    Can you cite when this was actually done? Or do you think this is all a shadow conspiracy?

    You work on the assumption anyone cares about Voyager all that much.

    Can you show us a copy of the casting quota requirements? Thanks.

    Half the reason Voyager was unwatchable was because of the woman captain, Janeway.

    The owners of the Trek franchise bowed to political correctness.

    It always was to be a woman; originally should have been Genevieve Bujold, but bugged out at the last minute I guess! It was a great finale that can be watched over and over by me! :beer: :banana: :biggrin:

    I caught it in syndication & was sorry I missed the original run back in the 90's! I'm thoroughly entertained! :clap: :desk:

    Um, no, it wasn't unwatchable because Janeway was a woman.

    It was unwatchable because it had a silly premise, ignored Trek canon, had weak characters that were less likeable, watered down versions of TNG's characters.

    It wasn't half as good as TNG or DS9, that's the point. Or Babylon 5, Firefly or Farscape or any of the other really good SF Shows of that period.

    I watched TNG & DS9 off and on, but as someone who lived through the originals, it was hard to get past some of the rip-off to keep the show going including splitting Riker into 2 separate entities! Doctor Who's reboot hasn't gone the way I would have liked with extremely long and painful story arcs that go on forever! I much preferred the stand-alone format! I liked "Blake's 7" over all of them even though just 52 episodes over 4 seasons! :banana: :beer: - - Children Of Rassilon - -
