Whoops, I am used to writing AU to describe fan fiction so I guess I didn’t spot the mistake. I meant EU of course.

Then again from the trailers it looked like writing the movie Australia could also be counted as a mistake.

Of course then they went the AU route with Voyager and TNG movies. The Voyager episode with the Tuvok flash back where it turns out he just happened to serve under Captain Sulu back in the day has to be an all time low point for this sort of thing.

Um, Tuvok’s first appearance was in the opening scene of Star Trek Generations where he’s shown serving aboard the Enterprise B. Years before Voyager was a thing. They’re supposedly two separate but identical characters, but come on. Same with Tom Paris, he’s literally playing the same character from that episode of TNG where Wesley is nearly kicked out of the Academy. But they didn’t want to pay residuals to the writer of that episode so they changed his name for Voyager.

That character was not a Vulcan, how could it be Tuvok?

Yeah the Tom Paris thing was much closer and that was jerky thing to do to the writers of The First Duty considering it was one of the best episodes of TNG and Tom Paris wouldn’t exist if they had not create the their character. Still Tuvok was not in Generations and when you already have a show where they just happen to meet Quark in the first episode and then latter Janeway is briefing Picard it does make the Star Trek galaxy feel very small and when the franchise is supposed to be about exploring the final frontier that is a bad thing in my book.

You’re right! I saw a picture before and could have sworn he had pointy ears. Yeah, the Tom Paris thing always bugged me.

Yeah, I was confused on both counts the first time I saw Voyager because I could have sworn it was two characters I had seen before only to find out they were not a few seasons in.

Oddly the rip off character ended up being one of the best on the show after Holo Doc and 7 of 9, how often can you say that?

Of course what caused real confusion back in the 90s was that Robert Picardo’s character was credited on screen as just “The Doctor” and when you add in all the time travel plots Voyager used it mean that some times SCi-Fi fans wouldn’t know if you were talking about the character from Voyager or Doctor Who and that led to everyone calling him Holo Doc. I guess all the good characters on that show were fated to confuse people from day one, was that their goal? Well we are talking about a show co-created by Rick Berman, a man who once fired a composer for quote “Being too good at his job”, so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised 😃

As Voyager stopped at DS9 before it’s ill fated mission, it’s not much of a stretch some of the crew went to Quark’s. (The Enterprise D went to the station more than once.) Not to mention the events that led to the formation of the Maquis began on TNG and carried over into DS9.

There are no real issues with Janeway being in Nemesis since it takes place well after Voyager got home. Promoting her to Admiral arguably keeps her out of trouble, after laying waste to much of the Gamma Quadrant. 😉

Need I mention Kirk and the gang ran into Harry Mudd no less than three times?

Yeah I guess, I just miss the TOS and early TNG days I guess where when Kirk or Picard would talk to someone at Starfleet command it would always be someone we had never heard of before, it just made Star Fleet feel so big. Still you are right about Mudd.

Oh yeah that would be the best way to deal with Janeway I guess. If you want to have a good laugh do a google search for SF Debris’ review of Nemesis and check out his version of that scene playing out and how he explains Janeway being an Admiral, it’s great. 😃

Not sure what’s worse: the fact these pages exist or the fact you searched for them.

My heart tells me the latter.

Of course that’s what someone in your situation would say.
