Re: VOY S6: Equinox, Part II

There is a lot to like in this episode but I think part 1 is superior, primarily because the character changes for Janeway in this episode don't feel right at all. When I first saw it, I was so assuming there was some other force acting on the ship (Like killing the first entity accidentally set off a sort of virus that eroded the human ethics) It would have explained Janeways change of character and why Ransom seemed to come out of a fugue when he was the primary instigator and Max seemed to get worse, and it would have explained the Equinox's descent into monstrous actions. It really seemed set up for this. They called the entities something like "Good fortune spirits" so I kept thinking they were going to reveal they potentially effected Humans oppositely. I was so surprised when it was just a strait forward "Janeway is out of character" moment. Especially when it was just the season finally before that the characterization was directly opposed to.

Re: VOY S4: Message in a Bottle

I do like this episode and feel that the strength of the "A" story makes up for the bland "B" and "C" stories. It would have been pretty cool is they had gotten Alexander Siddiq to play EMH-2 but despite the usual nature of his roles, Andy Dick does a pretty good job. I like to think that because of the controversy surrounding Bashir, his personality was used but not his likeness when Zimmerman began work on the EMH-2. Hence the fact that the dialogue does sound very Bashir (at least to me).

Re: VOY S3: Rise

I Don't love this episode and do agree there are a lot of problems, but I do not get all the hate this one seems to get. As has been said, I also think for the most part the Neelix/Tuvok works, and I have always appreciated that there seems to be a play on trying to improve the moral of "Galileo 7." Although G7 is a far superior episode over all, it always annoys me that in the end no one acknowledges that it's combination of things or a middle ground that wins the day. Instead it pretty much comes out and says The Racist-irrational people are right, and no one really pays for disrespecting the order of command. While this episode is inferior, I do appreciate that it tries to show a more rounded pro/con of a Vulcan command. Here Tuvok and Neelix learn to respect each other, instead of the odd ending where everyone patronizes and laughs at Spock. To reiterate I love G7 but I do appreciate that this episode tries to deal with the one part of that G7 that knocks half a star off of the score for me. (My Opinion: G7 4.5 Stars, Rise 2.5 stars)

Re: VOY S3: Scorpion, Part I

Just wanted to echo the sentiments that this is a great episode.

@Kristen - Thank you. I am Always trying to explain to people that the prime directive is multifaceted and not just about hiding from pre warp cultures. As you described, it is a multi-faceted directive about interference with other civilizations sovereignty. I think the issue in "Sumbiosis" was that they could help the Ornarans since they asked for it (if there had been an actual plague for Crusher to cure), but couldn't reveal the Brekkan's deception because it would disrupt the Brekkan's non-federation social order. Admittedly a fine line but those hard calls are why Picards the captain. I also like to use "The Hunted" as an example as it well describes how much the federation will interfere with all its discussions of "Internal security matters."
