You forgot the tertiary.


I'm not Trekkie enough to remember her whole Borg name.

Now let's see about you. Her whole human name is?

The sad truth is that I stopped watching Voyager around season 4, explicitly because of Seven of Nine. I was offended at the use of blatant sex appeal to boost their otherwise sagging ratings, although I think it worked - they made it the full 7 seasons. I was pretty young around this time, and I'm surprised that my hormones didn't kick in and override the logical part of my brain. Actually I remember looking at plenty of pictures of Jeri Ryan on the internet, so I guess the hormones were doing their job :).

The preceding paragraph was kind of stalling, as I'm blanking on her last name. I know her first name was Ana or Anna...can't for the life of me remember her last name or her parents'. Their ship had something to do with a raven though...

Dang, didn't even get that one right! Close though.

Annika.

I don't recall her last name, or much about her parents. But taking your daughter along on an expedition to study the Borg should qualify as child abuse.

I'm not a fan of Voyager, but most series can't help to have a few good episodes. So I kept watching it. I was more upset at how often they missed the boat, than about the technobabble to justify dressing Jeri Ryan in a skintight outfit and heels.

Yeah, I feel like the quality episode ratio was pretty low on Voyager, compared to DS9 or TNG (which were both excellent start-to-finish IMO). That also had a part in my decision, to be honest.

Oh, absolutely. The show's premise was flawed, too, which helped keep the quality low. I could go on about it, but I won't. I'll just say they took their time finding the Borg, and then spoiled the notion of the Borg as a major threat. Hint: a villain that destroys a big chunk of Starfleet cannot be a regular opponent for a single starship with limited resources.

But there were a few good eps, like the first Borg episodes, "The Year of Hell," and the Flash Gordon rip-off inside the holodeck with the "photonic" lifeforms. The whole idea for that one was ridiculous, of course, but you have to love a B&W spoof of bad pulp-heavy B movies of the past. Besides, in that one Seven amkes a joke and even chuckles: "Think of it as Starfleet's first contact with Planet X." :)

Most of my memories of sci fi women are about those I saw in the Chiller Theater features, 11:30 Saturday night.

Er, ...I was imaging the science fiction story where I discover this "Lucky You" Horseshoe tattoo on Scarlet Johansson. (yeah, that's how this fits here)

Barbara Rush is still alive (in her 80's), and her daughter is very attractive Fox News Correspondent.
