Default Calling all nerds! Star Trek moderator required!

Unable to accept my superior logic (and that of 90% of Star Trek fans) --- yeah, that's made up: you can prove anything with statistics. 80% of people will tell you that! --- that Voyager is pants, The Batlord has accepted my challenge to go head-to-head in a collaborative journal, starting soon, where we will debate the pros and cons of this stain on the Star Trek universe.

But he says he's right and I say I am: who's to decide? That's why we need a moderator for our debate. Preferably someone who knows Trek, if not Voyager (as there will be related comments used) but really it's just to look at our submissions and decide, on each occasion, who has presented the best case?

We'd need someone who was willing to basically read the entries say once a week and then make a determination as to who edges it that week. Anyone interested? It's not 100% vital we get a moderator, but I think it would be a good idea, if someone is up to the task and thinks they'd enjoy it.

Any takers?

Is "pants" a good thing or a bad thing?

I guess that'll be up to the moderator to decide.

He's Irish. I'm sure when he's got a bottle of whiskey in him his pants are the first thing to go, so I guess they're probably bad.

On dis side o' de water, pants is bad. If something is pants then it's no good.
Don't ask me why. I don't coin the phrases, I just use 'em: I don't pretend to understand them.

As long as you understand that Voyager is inferior to both TOS and TNG, we're good. I'm interested in hearing this discussion. Been a while since I watched Voyager, I just thought it was challenging to watch sometimes.

Why do you always see signs like "No shoes, no shirt, no service." But you'll won't see signs about "No shoes, No pants no service?" Why aren't pants as important as shirts?
