Voyager seems to like using words already 'explained' in other series or movies. Like a Mutara (sp?) class nebula.

Um.. actually, the Voyager episode with metreon-mania came first. Insurrection took it from them.

Voyager Season 1 Spoilers!

'Jetrel' had the evil Haakonian Dr. Jetrel (who looks kind of like Admiral Alidar Jarok) deciding that he doesnt like being evil.

Dr. Jetrel (who resembles Dr. Mora Pol) had previously created the 'metreon cascade' a vicious destructive force that vaporized all life on Rinax, but left it habitable for its Haakonian conquerors.

Dr. Jetrel (who kinda reminds me of an alternate future version of Alexander who has taken the name K'Mtar) decided that to redeem himself, he had to reverse the cascade, which will allow all the people of Rinax to magically reform(!!) and live again. This would include Neelix's family.

What a wonderful property of metreon gas! (Luckily it turned out he was lying.. I'm more surprised that Voyager's crew believed him. 'Gee lts get looking in the atmosphere for the molecules that used to be people, and put them back together again' 'Sure, that sounds easy!')

And I've noticed that the movies actually like to pick up long lost factoids from obscure episodes. Like 'Generations' revealing that Guinan was El-Aurian, the El-Aurians having been introduced in a really bizarre second season DS9 that made no reference to her, just their listening abilities.

You mean the episode with Chris Sarandon (best known as the evil Prince Humperdink from 'The Princess Bride' -- and ex-hubby of you-know-who) as a rival gambler out for Quark's business?

Dude, that guy is awesome. We watched Uncle Vanya on 42nd Street in drama class last year and I couldn't remember the actor's name to associate with the Uncle Vanya character he played so on my little handout sheet thingy I put a note next to Vanya as 'Grand Nagus'


Wow...what a run-on sentence...

I think you're thinking of Wallace Shawn, who played Grand Nagus Zek, and the short bald bad guy (I forget the name) in The Princess Bride.

The Riker Maneuver should refer to anytime you
a) cripple your ship when faced by inferior odds
b) drive a starship into a planet.(with all the space out there it's hard to hit a planet)
I don't know I wouldn't let this guy ride my bike let alone a starship.
Maybe in the next movie he can hit a star.

Speaking of the ubiquitous Wallace Shawn... I saw him in another movie today playing a Jerry Springer-type talkshow host on a Canadian movie called "Stardom". It was on Showtime Australia this morning. Anyway it also had Frank Langella SP? (Minister Jaro DS9 season 2) and Leni Parker (Da'an from Earth: Final Conflict). Bizarre Leni Parker IS Da'an. LOL! Such a cool character. Anyway I digress... from what I don't know this post had no real particular point!

And he said that he'd be back.

Another lie in a lifetime of regret.

--------------------
Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.
