I've decided to catch up by doing Days 2 and 3 of Voyager Week together. But first, the reason this took so long: the Voyager subsite is now fully converted to the PHP system! That's the last Trek subsite to get the upgrade, so we're making significant progress towards v4.0.


The Day 2 content is as follows....
    [*]First up is IJD GAF's first VOY fiver in two years: Five-Minute "Jetrel."[*]Next we have Five-Minute "Initiations" by a first-time guest writer, Katy Jane, who's had a very long wait to see this published.[*]Our Top 10 list for the day is an offbeat one: the The Top 10 Super Friends Roles for Voyager Characters, a joint effort by Nan and Sa'ar Chasm (making this the first co-authored Top 10 list).[*]Finally, the panel discussion continues with Voyagers, part 2: "Alkalliances," by Kira.[/list]

    And the Day 3 content....
      [*]First Kira brings us a new VOY fiver (arguably her specialty), Five-Minute "The Chute."[*]Next is Marc Richard's long-awaited return to this subsite, Five-Minute "Remember" (Marc hasn't done a VOY fiver since the six he started out with).[*]IJD brings us The Top 10 Things Kirk Would Do With the Delta Flyer.[*]And rounding out the update, we have Voyagers, part 3: "Before 'The Gift' and After 'Worst Case Scenario'," by Derek Dean (note that you've now seen something from each staff member, and we're not even halfway in!).[/list]

      Finally, two notes. First, I'm heading back to Ottawa for Christmas now, so for the next couple of weeks I won't be online as much (but I shouldn't have any problem making the remaining Voyager Week updates). Second, over at TripHammered -- which I'm starting to think of as 5MV's sister site -- evay has posted a rebuttal to my Top 10 list from Day 1. Check it out.

I figured if I posted the list on my site with a link to yours, I'd get more traffic for both of us. :mrgreen:



Quote:
Liria: Upon scanning them, we found large quantities of dihydrogen monoxide.
hee hee hee

Quote:
Kim: That's not helping. It's this stupid clamp; I can't think straight.
Paris: We'd better fantasize about the Delaney sisters too.
O, the episode that launched a thousand 'shippers! 8)

Quote:
Neelix: The Enarans have the final solution to that little problem. Here...rub these metal balls between your palms. They release a hydrocarbon-based disinfectant.
Chakotay: These people have some pretty impressive technology. What do they call this germicide?
Neelix: "Ethylic cleansing."
ouch!....

Quote:
Brel: That's impossible. We have a strict ethical code of niceness which forbids such mental violations. At most, she is simply picking up random thoughts from our group.
Torres: I don't buy that. The dreams are structured into a coherent and utterly gripping narrative.
Brel: Perhaps you just have a subconscious talent for storytelling. Have you ever considered becoming a romance novelist?
Ooh, double B'Elanna ep reference! very nice.

Wooo! Great Stuff Zeke, Kira, Marc Richard, IJD GAF, Derek Dean, Katy Jane, Nan, and Sa'ar Chasm!


Awesomely funny material which the quotes would not fit within the constrains of this post.

Quote:
Jetrel: Your transporters are awesome. I've just spent the last hour or so transporting from one circle on the pad to another.
Heh. Come to think of it, I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone react that way to the transporters before now.

Quote:
Captain's Log: A logbook entry is a great way to dismiss long, heated discussions. In this case, the one where Kes convinced Neelix to stay in sickbay with Jetrel for an extended period of time.

Neelix: You know the worst thing about the Metryon Cascade? It killed everybody on an entire moon.
Jetrel: That's the only thing about the Metryon Cascade.
Neelix: Also, the little girl I found on the surface who could only cry out "Braaaiiins!"
Jetrel: That's from a scene in "Night of the Talaxian Zombies".
Neelix: You're a monster. And I hope you die tomorrow.
Heheheh. :mrgreen:

Quote:
Neelix's Dream: I am allegorical.
Al Gore: And I am Al Gore.
I spent a few seconds with the first "allegorical" passage trying to make that play on words fit into the dialogue there. ops:

Great fiver there!




Quote:
Kazon 1: Well, will you look at that -- a Federation shuttle.
Kazon 2: Stupid Federation. I'll go blow them up.
...
Kazon 2: Why are you laughing evilly?
Kazon 1: I have no idea.


Quote:
Neelex: I'm feeling underappreciated.
Janeway: That's nonsense. Your meals are almost edible.
Neelix: Awww... you really think so?


Quote:
Kahr: What are you doing?
Chakotay: I'm trying to help you.
Kahr: Well, I wish you'd stop.
Starfleeters get that an AWFUL lot, don't they?

Quote:
Kazon 2: We should go this way.
Tuvok: We should go this way.
Kazon 1: The Vulcan's right.
Tuvok: The Kazon was right.
Kazon 1: Ha ha ha! Suckers!

Kahr: Change of plans.
Kazon 1: GAK!
Chakotay: I like this way even better.
Heehee :mrgreen:

Great work there too




My favorites from the list:
Quote:
Harry Kim: Zan ("Form of... a Wet Blanket!")
Torres: Wonder Woman ("Truth, Justice, and Bashing Your Skull In With My Bare Hands.")
Janeway: Batman ("Prepare to eat phasers, old chum.")



Quote:
Culluh: (over the comm) We have hoarded all the hair care products in the Delta Quadrant. Mwahahaha!
Kira: @$#%&!
Heeheehee :mrgreen:

Quote:
Kazon Ships: ZAP! ZAP! ZAP!
Computer: Secondary plot devices have been damaged.
Zeke: I'm sure it's not important. Maintain course.

IJD: We're being boarded!
Zeke: Computer, set auto-destruct sequence, authorization code "Ka-blam!"
Computer: Unable to process request. Secondary plot devices are offline.
Zeke: Shazbot.
Heheheh.

Quote:
Marc: I'm not programmed to lie.
Second Kazon: See?
Marc: Unless, of course, I'm programmed to lie, and say I'm not programmed to lie.
First Kazon: Uh....
Second Kazon: My head hurts.
Marc: Heh heh heh.

...
Zeke: Hm. You're right, that's a good idea. It might help the morale situation.
Kira: Then I hereby christen this stupid planet "The Forlorn Planet of Doom."
Zeke: How will that raise morale?
Kira: Oh, you wanted to raise it?
:lol:

I'm getting a big kick out of this Voyagers series. Looking forward to the next parts!

Quote:
Tuvok: We are approaching another ship. Since we require time to gather information on the whereabouts of Mr. Paris and Mr. Kim, as well as engineer a rescue operation, I have concluded that these are the perpetrators we are searching for.
Janeway: Good work, Tuvok. You're quite the detective.
Tuvok: Call me "Shervok."
Smart guy, all right :mrgreen:

Quote:
Kim: (singing) ....You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one; I hope some day you'll join us, and the world will live as one... OW! OW! OW! Those rocks are sharp, you tool!


Quote:
Tuvok: (emerging from the chute) ...Wheeeeeeee!
(pause)
Tuvok: What? I don't get out much.
:lol: I guess not!



Quote:
Torres: WHAT? Who's B'Elanna, you two-timing... (opens an eye) ...oh. Uh, sorry about that, Chakotay. Did I just sleep past the start of my duty shift?
Chakotay: I'm not sure "sleep" is quite the right word, but it'll be less of a blot in your reprimand file than some of the alternatives.
Heheh. He's probably right.

Quote:
Neelix: The Enarans have the final solution to that little problem. Here...rub these metal balls between your palms. They release a hydrocarbon-based disinfectant.
Chakotay: These people have some pretty impressive technology. What do they call this germicide?
Neelix: "Ethylic cleansing."
Heheheh.



I rather liked these items from the list:
Quote:

Install a yeoman


Quote:
Borg Ship: AAAAAGGGH!
Derek: You know, I lose more Borg ships that way.
Borg Collective: It's "We", you idiot. Can't you even keep your pronouns straight?
Derek: Shouldn't that be "our pronouns straight"?
Borg: AAAAAGGGH!
Bwahahahaaa! :lol:


Quote:
Zeke: I've got a plan!
Kira: Marc, Hammer.
Zeke: Wait! Aren't you going to at least hear it first?
Kira: Does it have anything to do with our current situation?
Zeke: Yes.
Kira: Oh. I figured it would be about pie.
Heeheehee.
Quote:
Zeke: We trap Species 8472 in a giant pie.
Marc: Here, Kira.
(THUMP!)

Quote:
Zeke: Or we trap the Borg in a giant pie.
(THUMP!)
Zeke: Or we make a deal with the Borg.
(THUMP!)
Marc: Wait. I think that actually was a good idea.
(THUMP!)
Kira: Did you say something, Marc?
:lol: :lol:

Quote:
Marc: So what do we call you? Five? Or five?
Derek: Call me Derek. It seems to be my speaker credits.
Kira: Was that your human name?
Derek: I hope so. I was worried it might be Annika.
Heheheh, and yes, that is scary

Playing catch-up here, after being out of town for several days visiting the folks for the holiday. Good stuff, all! (and very good first outing, KJ. )
