Vela Kurv Considers the “Learning Curve” Aboard Starship Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log


Janeway once again takes a lead in initiating the training of new crew members, all from the renegade ship the Maquis, to train them in Starfleet procedures to help them become better Voyager crew members. Unfortunately, the unyielding Science Office, Tuvok, must teach them discipline, because he taught cadets for some 17 years at the Starfleet Academy. But alas, even best laid plans can go awry.
Janeway’s intention not only aids the former Maquis crew members still having problems with Starfleet guidelines, but Tuvok (Janeway’s confident) as assigned instructor, learns he must bend his rigidity to allow for the passion of a former renegade crew.

The ties between the Maquis are binding, so all parties involved in this learning curve, must comprise and adapt which allows for new camaraderie to form. Tuvok breaks his own rule, stays in a life threatening situation to save a former Maquis, the olive branch is returned when the Maquis trainees ordered to leave by him, return to save both he and their rescued crew member, thought dead. Janeway’s guide is continuing to build one loyal Starship Voyager crew.

Vela Kurv Watches “Jetrel” Aboard Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

Captain Janeway must work as a negotiator and an investigator when Haakonian scientist Ma’Bor Jetrell comes on board the Starship Voyager requesting permission to test and treat Neelix. Neelix, the ship’s guide, wants no part of the weapon designer’s mission, even if it means saving his own life because Jetrel developed the devastating metreon cascade weapon that killed some 300,000 of Neelix’s race, the Talaxians. Janeway and Kes (Neelix’s Ocampan beloved) persuade Neelix to undergo examination and Jetrel convinces Neelix to be treated in hopes of discovering a cure for the many survivors of the Talaxian war now suffering from metreon poisoning.

Janeway ultimately discovers Jetrel’s pretense for curing Neelix is a hoax, his only agenda is to develop a method of reintegration of the biomatter still in orbit years after the explosion, but the degree of fragmentation is too great, the procedure cannot be accomplished. Here again the effects of Janeway’s character building governance is apparent in Neelix. Before joining Voyager’s crew, Neelix was an independent trader whose dealings seemed somewhat shady from the pilot episode but reconsiders his passionate hatred of Jetrel and forgives him before he dies of severe metreon poisoning. Here the habits of solid leadership are beginning to spread to those now aboard Voyager who never even attended the Starfleet Academy. Well done Janeway.

Vela Kurv Academy School Log


A most unusual scenario, Captain Janeway’s Chief Engineer, B’Elanna Torres has her genetic structure split in two by the Vidiians. Torres is reconstituted due to her Klingon half’s sacrifice of her life. Chakotay, second-in-command of Voyager, is successful is recovering Paris, but Lieutenant Durst is killed for his body parts. Janeway’s crew loyalty is building, which is evident by Chakotay’s volunteering to undergo cosmetic surgery to assume a Vidiian appearance in order to lead the rescue mission. Janeway is accomplishing a feat by overcoming the differences of two crews forced together to survive; the renegade Maquis and the military regime of Voyager.
