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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Chakotay learns that personal vengeance no matter the egregiousness of personal attack is no reason to martyr himself when his loyalty should now always be to the Voyager crew. They are all in their plight together. All crew personnel might align together to find their way home to Earth.
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.
First Officer Chakotay (Robert Beltran), in Star Trek Voyager episode, Tattoo, finds a familiar cultural symbol on an away mission. He and his away team prepare to extract polyferranide deposits found below the planet’s surface. Chakotay’s challenge is to follow orders and direct the team to retrieve the deposits for Voyager or leave the planet and its inhabitants alone.
He connects with an experience he had as a child and tries to contact his spirit people.
In true Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), fashion, respecting the good of exploration, believing that Voyager will find alternative resources, Chakotay makes contact with members of a humanoid species that his ancestors once called the Sky Spirits. Respecting the wishes of the planet’s inhabitants, Voyager departs without the needed polyferranide.
One of Janeway’s (Kate Mulgrew), biggest advocates aboard ship is Kes (Jennifer Lien), and she is able to use her own telekinetic abilities to attack and free the crew from their debilitating hallucinations.
Kate Mulgrew and Tim Russ star in Star Trek Voyager
Janeway’s resolve to grow yet defend have taken root in Kes and her actions that lead to the crew’s release, prove this in this episode.
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.
