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.

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.

Star Trey Voyager Resistance Episode

Vela Kurv Watches “Resistance” in Star Trek Voyager

Vela Kurv Academy School Log

Janeway is forced to rely on her own devices when Torres and Tuvok are captured by the Mokra during an away mission searching for tellerium.

Star Trek Starship Voyager suffers a serious shortage of tellurium, critical to the ship’s power generation systems. In an effort to acquire the tellurium, Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and her away team visit a Class-M planet where the people called the Mokra live. The team is forced to operate covertly on the planet, because of the oppressive nature of the Mokra government.

 

After crew members are detained, Janeway is successful in befriending an Alsaurian resistance fighter named Caylem who is killed but not before he is instrumental in helping the Voyager away team deal with the Mokra officials. Janeway is appreciative of his sacrifice; it reinforces her belief system on loyalty, and the unified purpose that has been building between her Voyager crew. This new crew born out of two crews that were juxtaposed in mission and purpose; one renegade, one military, but both now search for a much shortened journey 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.

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 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.
