We’re at the end of Season 2 already. I think it took us a year to get this far in our TNG rewatch. Just sayin’.
Episode 17: The 37’s
A group of humans from the 1930s is found in stasis on an abandoned planet, including the lost Amelia Earhart.
And the fanfic writes itself. I guess they were tired of trying to insinuate some UST between Chakotay and Janeway so they decided to pull out the stops with some of the most palpable on-screen sexual chemistry on any Star Trek show. Janeway and Amelia Earhart never get it on—except with their eyes and hungry, quivering lips—but you can see their imaginations racing. Tackleberry from Police Academy guest stars and, not to speak ill of the dead, puts in a crap performance. The set up for this episode is pretty much the same as “Space Seed”. I think it starts with Janeway’s Turn of the Screw holodeck novel but I can’t remember because I think I’m willfully ignoring these bits.
Fun fact: This episode was meant to be the finale for Season One. It wasn’t for some reason I can’t be arsed to look up.

Girl Detectives. What’s not to love? They’re precocious, crafty and cute.
I was going to write a bunch of stuff about girl detectives for these show notes but Meghan Ecclestone, Rookie Librarian, has already done a pretty good job with her post, “Murder-mysteries just got a whole lot more adorable.”
She even lists the things the three sly sleuths of our episode—Nancy Drew, Veronica Mars and Flavia de Luce—all have in common.
