You're neglecting to differentiate between a very important point here...

You are in an extreme minority as being a fan who became disgruntled with the show after "Kes" left.

There are substantitally more fans of Janeway, thus the effect of Before Dishonor, has much more impact (albeit less than if it had aired as part of the TV series) that anything to do with Kes.

Face it Lynx, compared to Janeway, no one really cares about Kes.

I can agree that the amount of people who are p***ed off by Janeway being killed off is bigger than the amount of fans being p***ed off by the way Kes was treated.

But stating that "no one cares about Kes" is not correct. A letter campaign to have Kes re-instated did result in thousands of letters and e-mails sent to Paramount.

So people did care.

And I do think that they did lose a certain amount of fans when Kes "left" and even more after the slap in the faces of the fans that "Fury" was.

Killing off Janeway will make even more fans dissatisfied with the official Star Trek stories. The same for the annihilation of other favorite characters.

Well that's true. Nobody really cared about Kes.

But Janeway is alive and well, so there is nothing to worry about.
I liked the basic plot (although the book was really bad written). Seeing one of the main characters being changed into a Borg permanently (without haveing the possibility to bring her back) gave the story an extra kick.

I still don't understand all this fuss over Janeway being dead. Anyone who has read the book can clearly see that she is not dead.

I realy hate when people complain about something they know nothing about.


and how did this turn into another Kes thread?? :eyesroll:  :sick:

The point is: We are watching those episodes and reading those books because we like to watch our favorite characters and read about them in the books. We don't want them killed off or ruined.

All Good Things.....

In that case......

Kill them all off in a couple of horrible stories, stop producing books, shut down this website and start to look at Star Trek as something from the past.

Hmm......I don't think that it is what we want.

Your making it sound like a story is horrible because of a character death.  Hmm I wonder what you thought of Star Trek II.

I find it funny that you are so harsh to judge a book that you said you haven't read. If you had you would have known that there is a huge gaping opening in the end for her to come back


nobody stays dead in Star Trek...you should know that

Uh...
-- Data
-- Kirk
-- Jadzia
-- Terrell
-- Si Cwan
-- Ensign Hogan

... need I go on?

We dont know for sure they are dead after all stranger things are known to happen.

Do you have this much doubt about REAL people who are dead?

Because believe me, there are plenty of people who are dead right now that will remain deceased.

It will (and possibly, is) a sad day for Star Trek if fans continuously believe that their favorite characters "may come back" from the grave, someday. ¿That would be incredibly cheap, if so.

Death is a reality of life folks; deal with it.

Just making convo is all.

The point is, it's STAR TREK. Just because someone "dies" doesn't mean we don't see them again
