Star Trek: Voyager “The Fight” (part 4 of 5)

Now, dear readers, prepare yourselves for one of the most horrifying scenes to ever appear on Voyager, or anywhere else for that matter. You may want to go to the bathroom right now, and tickle the back of your throat with a feather. That way, you won’t have anything left in your stomach when you picture this scene.

The Doctor stands in the boxing ring and describes, medically, the nasty effects of repeated blows to the head. For some reason, the Doctor is being extremely menacing about his descriptions, and using huge Kabuki gestures as he talks. Meanwhile, watching this nonsensical display is Chakotay, who’s lying on his stomach, wearing nothing but a towel around his waist. He’s getting a massage. That’s not the gross part.

Here comes the gross part. Gird your loins, gentle readers. Grab a bucket, just in case.

Mark teaches at Doane College, a liberal arts college in Crete, Nebraska. Most of his teaching involves computer science, but Mark also occasionally teaches mathematics and the history of science; he has also been known to offer three week courses on the worst movies ever made. Mark's bad movie obsession was kindled in the early 1980s by the Medved brothers, then fanned to full flame by late-night showings of Plan 9 from Outer Space. Who could have predicted the long term effects of satin-pajama-clad, mincing alien menace? Mark's other interests include homebrew beer and wine, and practicing and teaching martial arts.
