He did make a good foil to Tom "Best Trek" Paris though.
But yes total loser
But yes total loser
Hey now, there were plenty of great Travis stories. Such as:
I ended up liking Neelix okay on that show but I'm not sure if it's because everyone else was so ill-used.
there's honestly just a LOT less of him
Yeah I did when I was reading about Harry/Kess/Seven shuffle.. feels bad man, just basically a trainwreck now
I don't remember that but even then that's completely BS reasoning. IIRC the Enterprise had three commanders at one point
Kim and, at least according to this thread, Kes are the only truly useless/pointless characters. I liked Kes though, there was a nice sort of naivety to her and Jennifer Lien is cute. But she's not a very good actress. :(Man, Voyager sure was full of boring and useless people. Harry Kim should have taken another job, like Neelix. Neelix had like four different jobs at Voyager, from cook to security. What a terrible show... And I still need to rewatch it after I'm finally done with my TNG rewatch.
I will, however, contend that Kim's uselessness is his character arc in the show, brought to a very specific point about his replacement being himself minus some time. It doesn't come across well, sadly, but it's kind of a character experiment on its own, since you generally see everyone else in a ST show as somehow successful, well-liked, well-rounded, intelligent and well-adjusted. Barclay is the only character I can meaningful draw a parallel to, except that he is the flaw our viewers watched through and he still managed to be an interesting character who grew across multiple series.
I seem to recall Ronald Moore was parachuted in from DS9, saw what was going on and noped out after a few episodes.
I think this is my favorite episode honestly. Just so tragic and dark and unusual for what was a mainstream series.
Timeless. But that's really the only episode where you could tell the character and actor had more potential than the scripts were giving them.
Yeah, and technically the same exact thing happened to O'Brien, too. He died (well, was radiation poisoined and wouldn't have survived a return to "the present") and was replaced by himself from a couple hours into a future (that then never happened).
The cultural adviser they hired for Chakotay's background turned out to be a fraud, which I'm sure compounded the issue.
Yoooooo that makes so much sense, the stuff he would say sounds like some hippy nonsense.
any episode that was Doctor focused was good IMOI recently rewatched Voyager. There were maybe a 6-7 Harry Kim focused episodes out 172 episodes. And while none is especially bad, none is standout good.
And this is Voyager, a show that's not really inundated with classics
That said, I'd rather watch a Harry Kim episode than a Chakotay episode. I liked maybe 1 or 2 chakotay eps (the one where he was in different time periods in different parts of the ship).
Thankfully, the producers more or less gave up on every character other than Seven and The Doctor by the end.
its implied but not necessarily the same character from what I remember.
In all but name and a few other details, yes, Locarno and Paris are essentially the same character.
They're two different characters, technically. They have different names.
Yeah this guy:
I never stood how that worked? Like wouldn't paramount own the character?
