I would start a new thread about this with a spoiler warning if you guys want to continue the discussion. I am almost finished the 3rd season but I don't think Janeway has got threw season 2 yet so Livingston you may want to delete your post and repost it in a new thread

"I have not begun to question the will of the Ori, but I have begun to question the interpretation of their words. No matter what you say, I will not believe the Book of Origin asks us to massacre innocent people! And I will not stand by while the Holy Doctrine of Good Will and Faith that I have sworn to uphold is twisted into a hammer and used to beat people down!"
Excatly! People rationalize religous concepts into their own, and usually self serving ideas.

Again, serving their own desires, not the doctrine of the religon.

I believe the new electoral system that was purposed was going to allow us to also vote for which party we wanted to win. I believe there where going to be a few extra seats set aside in the house for those votes and which ever party got the most votes would get those seats. Those seats would be filled by members of that party that lost in their riding but they would be assigned by that party leader.
Your new system is the same system as we have in the Scottish Parliament. I much prefer it. Your old style is the same as we have here for the UK Parliament

Sorry I forgot to mention it actually got voted down so we still have the same system as the UK Parliament then.

No worries. All I will say is the second season final throws you for a loop. It's great!
