Vela Kurv Enjoys Star Trek TNG in “Elementary, Dear Data”

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

Star Trek The Next Generation’s (TNG) famous Captain Picard encourages his crew to explore their own curiosities for exploration with favorite hobbies, even though such tactics sometime expose the ship to great risk. During an adventure on the holodeck, in which Data is portraying Sherlock Holmes, Geordi asks the computer to create a Moriarty adversary capable of defeating Data.
Since the request specifies that Moriarty should be greater than “Data” himself (and not the Holmes character), the resulting character proves himself capable of far exceeding Geordi and Data’s expectations.


 

From Lorabella’s journals at the West Pipe Space Academy, before she becomes Vela Kurv

A lesson is learned in what is possible in holodeck programming. Moriarty becomes almost self aware. Picard is intrigued by the development and allows the character not to be erased and more knowledge is gained on what is possible inside the holodeck aboard the starship Enterprise.

 


No risk, no reward. A qualified leader cannot be afraid of measured risk, especially when greater useable knowledge is the reward.

Star Trek TNG Where Silence Has Lease

Vela Kurv Sits and Watches “Where Silence Has Lease” on Star Trek TNG

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

On Star Trek TNG, “Where Silence Has Lease”

In Star Trek TNG, Captain Picard’s U.S.S Enterprise-D encounters a mysterious void in space. Picard, ever the explorer moves the ship in closer to investigate. To his surprise, it envelops the Enterprise and his crew can’t maneuver out. Picard must now negotiate with an all powerful being that has already killed a crew member in a mere experimentation to view human death.

Picard counters this malevolent species by threatening to destroy the Enterprise. This is a bluff that works and in the end he gains the acknowledgement that next time he encounters this powerful being, it will be amongst the stars and not in a void in space.

Vela Kurv is Mystified with “The Child” on Star Trek TNG

Marina Siritis stars in Star Trek TNG, The Child.


Captain Picard must deal with the unimaginable. Counselor Deanna Troi is impregnated by an unknown alien life-form. Determining whether the life-form is a threat or if it has a peaceful purpose of simply acquiring intelligence is Picard’s best guess. Fortunately a peaceful purpose turns out to be so.

Diana Muldaur stars as Dr. Katherine Pulaski on Star Trek TNGAdditionally Picard meets his crew’s new chief medical officer, Dr. Katherine Pulaski.

Both aforementioned circumstances are unknowns and are intertwined. Picard’s practical ability to examine and discern allows the threat of a medical contaminate aboard his ship to be exposed. And the fast growing child, an intelligent species in and of itself, sacrifices his young human life to preserve the Enterprise crew. This allows the starship’s rescue mission carrying the medicines needed to eradicate a killing disease to occur. Picard’s tact and resolve is a model to be imitated.

Star Trek Voyager Episode Manuevers

Chakotay ignores his duties of command believing that his past relationship with former Voyager crew member Seska, a traitor, is responsible for the Kazon warriors that penetrate Voyager’s hull and steal a transporter control module. The device represents a significant security risk since the Kazon do not possess transporter technology in this Delta Quadrant of space.
Chakotay commandeers a shuttlecraft, is captured by First Maje Jal Culluh of the Kazon-Nistrim sect who has unified with Seska. At Janeway’s discretion in allegiance to her first officer Chakotay who much of her crew respects, Voyager rescues him.

Star Trek Voyager Cold Fire Episode

The Ocampa Kes once again engages a lesson on where her true new found loyalty lies.


Kes (Jennifer Lien), from the Ocampa species, chooses to align herself with the crew of Star Trek Voyager instead of her new found Ocampa inhabitants found on another spaceborne array created by another sporocystian life-form called Suspiria; the mate of the original Caretaker. The crew searches out the signal that tapped into the Caretaker’s remains aboard ship and finds the 2000 Ocampa who help develop Kes’ psychokinetic abilities to extraordinary levels.

Kes is frightened by the immense powers that were latent in her mind.

Tanis the Ocampa, courts Kes to continue to explore and expand her abilities with him. Suspiria and Tanis attempt to force Voyager personnel to release Kes. Suspiria attacked ship’s personnel because she believed Voyager to be responsible for her mate’s death. Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), reason’s with Suspiria and releases her from capture.

Janeway was hoping to persuade Suspiria to use her array to get Voyager back home to Earth a75,000 year journey. This was not to be; instead Voyager’s entire crew was targeted by Suspiria to be killed. Janeway is successful in driving Suspiria and Tanis into a subspace domain called Exosia, releasing Voyager’s captured and injured crew.

Thanks to Janeway, Voyager personnel have their lives and ship intact to continue on their journey from the Delta Quadrant in order to find a shortened route back home to Earth.

Vela Kurv Deals with “Parturition” in Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

  • RileyRose Author, McKesson

Relations between Neelix and Lt. Tom Paris fall to a new low when they have a food fight in the mess hall over Kes.


Jealousy and resolve is the challenge and the lesson in this episode. Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), has one primary goal; find a source for food supplies. However, what is found is Planet Hell. It is a Class-M planet believed to support extensive vegetation. The Talaxian, Neelix – Ethan Phillips, (also in love with the Ocampa, Kes – Jennifer Lien) is jealous of chief helmsman, Tom Paris’ (Robert Duncan MacNeill), attention paid to Kes. Neelix’s high emotions erupt into a physical fight and Janeway orders them to settle their differences for the sake of the crew’s survival; they must explore Planet Hell for the needed food supplies.

Janeway’s orders force them to work together and in the midst of doing so Neelix and Tom Paris are trapped together on the alien planet. They must work together so that they and their new found alien baby ward can survive.

Robert Duncan McNeill and Ethan Phillips star in Star Trek Voyager

Janeway cautions Tom Paris and Neelix to put their differences aside.

The experience unites them and forces them to reason one with another. In the end, their ability to follow Janeway’s orders resolves their differences even if an additional food source is not the actual vegetative food supply thought present by the ship’s engineers.

Vela Kurv Wonders About “Non Sequitur” on Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

Captain Janeway’s (Kate Mulgrew ), leadership and development is seen in her operations officer, Harry Kim (Garrett Wang) . He must keep his head but shows his loyalty to his lost crewmates when he chooses to return aboard ship instead of a new life with his love and success on Earth.

 

Harry Kim wakes up in San Francisco having never been assigned to Voyager which Starfleet considers lost.

Garrett Wang stars in Star Trek Voyager Non Sequitur

Kim returns from an alternate universe with the assistance of an extradimensional being. His loyalty to his crew is also proven by his persuasion of friend and chief helmsman Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill), to return both of their lives to service aboard the Starship Voyager.

Janeway’s leadership has transpired into loyalty and the beginnings of a starship family are forming. This is proof of a strong leader, when her crew would choose their lost plight over a life of love and success in an alternative reality of ease. I can only hope that I can engender the same kind of devout loyalty in my staff.

Vela Kurv Sees the “Elogium” on Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

 

Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew ), has an unusual role in this episode, she is seen as a maternal advisor by Kes (Jennifer Lien ), in addition to her position as captain of a starship. Kes reaches out to only Janeway, which demonstrates her belief in Janeway’s instincts as well as her command.

 

 

The Starship Voyager encounters new life forms that have a very unusual attraction to the ship. The electrophoretic field created by the spaceborne life-forms triggers the elogium, or the sexual mating cycle in a very young Ocampan Kes.

Jennifer Lien stars Star Trek Voyager

Janeway leads an investigation to free Voyager from the elogiums’ attraction to it without harming them, meanwhile dealing with a highly emotional Kes who must decide to conceive at a very early age.

Janeway must get an accurate assessment of risk both inside and outside her starship. She prevails and both ship and Kes find their way through their crisis. Janeway uses her assessment and study to determine an approach. Keeping calm to utilize crew expertise and assess the correct path is the responsibility of a competent commander. One approach I hope to make when I assume my role as a commander.

Vela Kurv Views “Initiations” on Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

Captain Janeway allows her second-in-command, Chakotay to take a personal leave aboard a shuttlecraft. Chakotay is attacked by a lone Kazon youth who has to prove himself by killing a Federation enemy. Chakotay’s shuttlecraft is destroyed in the incident, after he escapes capture in hopes of somehow finding his freedom and leaving a trail for Voyager to find and follow.

Chakotay finds out that Federation values are not shared by the Kazon, moreover, these values are not held in regard in any manner. Chakotay makes a choice to sacrifice his life for the young Kazon and the Kazon intern realizes his true enemy is his leader he’s been trying to prove his name for, not Chakotay. The young Kazon does earn his name by killing the Kazon leader that vowed to make an example of his own failure to kill Chakotay, and kills him.

Chakotay is a capable commander in his own right, but he is obviously impressed by Janeway’s own optimism and desire to find a way home for her lost crew. Her positive focus and determined choice to follow the ethical path of Starfleet even though her crew is 70,000+ light-years from home, earns her respect from this former renegade Maquis captain. I hope that the lessons I learn from reviewing these captains’ journeys are just a positively impressionable on me and my demands of command.
