    The desire to have children versus the desire to have sex not withstanding...the desire to continue your civilization has to come into play at some point.

    Perhaps they'll shuffle people around and have a orphanage ship, with teachers and nanny's have a kid, dump him on the orphanage ship until they're of age and ship them into the profession where people are most needed!...Pilots. (Hmm...Annie in space?)

    Of course, if you want your kid, that's a different story, and perhaps the government should offer incentives to have kids.

    In any case, Boxey should re-emerge in the fifth or six season and become a pilot. So he can die on screen for all to see!

    Okay...the one paragraph would read better thusly:

    Perhaps they'll offer potential parents an Orphanage ship. People can have the babies, dump them on the orphanage ship. There should be teachers and nanny's and all that good stuff to take care of the kiddies on the ship. When the kids are old enough, dump them into the profession which is in most need of workers.

    Not my actual political view...but an option.

    I heard on one of Ron Moore's podcast that the actor who played Boxey was gorwing up too fast to fit with in the shows timeline so then quickly forgot about him.
