dxdy, your inquiry sounds very interesting and may draw better response in the Enterprise forum. I'm going to move your thread there. As a huge fan of that particular show, I will definitely review what you have done and comment on it but it may take me a couple of days. BTW, your username makes me nervous as higher math was the bane of my engineering school existence. You're forgiven though. ;-)
Our younger daughter is a hospital chaplain. I know she has to be very measured in how personally involved she can become with each patient because there is a limit to how much compassion one can give without becoming completely exhausted. Perhaps this is what your wannabe doctor friends were expressing in a less than delicate manner.
Thanks for the kind wishes, folks. Though ancient by young folks' standards, old Mutai is a tough old bird able to knock off 50+ miles on a Trek bicycle with only water and a stop at White Castle for some Sliders (local foodie phenomenon). Very happy to now be able to say "Next birthday, I'll be SEVENTY!"
OK, SpockST, are you challenging my position as the official Omega Sector geezer??? I'll be 69 on May three and you've got to be somewhere in that range. In any event, fellow AARP candidate, welcome to the board.
I watched most (but not all) of Voyager in first run. I started with high hopes but soon became somewhat disenchanted, mostly because of Janeway. Somehow, I rarely saw the character and just saw an actor hitting her mark and delivering her lines with almost mechanical body language and facial expression. Yes, Harry Kim was a bit boring and the Kazon had really ugly hair but the captain was the weakest link. Jerri Ryan's 7 of 9 somewhat rescued the show (and I believe the character would have been compelling even if played by a less attractive actress).
I am now midway through Season 2 on a Netflix rewatch and fid myself coming to the same conclusions. I really like the EMH and find both Neelix and Kes to be more enjoyable than I remember but Janeway still misses the mark.
