Re: VOY S2: The 37's

Voyager is a whole lot tougher than a shuttlecraft, though I suspect the real reason they landed it was because it's cool and it's something a Galaxy class vessel can't do.

I really liked the shots of Janeway in in the ready room with some lovely blue skies outside and sunshine beaming in where there's usually endless blackness with maybe a (usually sentient) nebula outside. I also liked that for once the planet's inhabitants had taken care of their own problems a long time ago.

Don't get me started on the plot though (WHY WAS THAT TRUCK OUT IN SPACEFWAAARGHWRLBL

Re: VOY S1: Faces

Yes I was wondering how they were going to free the dozens if not hundreds of other organ donors/slaves and where they'd put them on a ship as dinky as Voyager too but then they just peaced out of there and left them all to die. Could've been a nice new dynamic if they were hauling around a bunch of refugees on an already crowded ship but I guess there just wasn't enough screentime (or it's more of Janeway's prime directive extremism hehe).

Also Klingon B'Ellana's

Re: VOY S1: Cathexis

Ha, yes, 'starfleet personnel don't behave that way'. If only we had a Trek series set aboard a lone ship far from the 'fleet, staffed by a volatile mix of starfleet and until recently openly hostile crew forced to work together to get home!

I have to say I didn't hate this episode, perhaps due in part because I was so grateful the Janeway running around in a bonnet drinking tea thing was only a teaser of horrors to come.

There's stupid stuff to pick apart (hey Chakotay how about possessing someone to pick up a pen and explain what the heck is going on) but man everything that gets Tuvok to shoot the bridge crew and neck pinch Kes so hard it looks like she had an encounter with space vampires is going to entertain me.

Re: VOY S1: Heroes and Demons

For the love of god is there any non-sentient form of energy anywhere in this entire freaking quadrant!?

Starfleet folk are always so respectful of the holodeck's 'rules' even when there are lives at stake and the safeties are malfunctioning and there's a seemingly malevolent entity running around disappearing their crewmen. What exactly is stopping them from simply stomping through shooting everything on sight? How come the Mysterious Entity of the week apparently agrees to be bound by the grendel_event program flag? The doctor isn't even solid, there's no reason for him to waste time interacting with anything at all here (though unlike Tuvok and Chakotay he at least has a motivation to want to take it all in.)

Ah I know, these are petty complaints, but I ran clean out of suspension of disbelief about 20 minutes in due to sheer boredom (having seen the semi-recent and entirely-horrible Beowulf movie certainly didn't help).

Re: VOY S1: State of Flux

I'm watching all this for the first time just now but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess nobody on the bridge will take note of the fact that an unshielded replicator makes for a terrifying makeshift bomb. Because that's not at all relevant information to a trouble magnet of a ship lost 75 years from home with only eight photon torpedoes left (or was it seven?).

Re: VOY S1: Ex Post Facto

Apparently Kirk's reputation is now of such proportions that even inhabitants of the delta quadrant see a starfleet ship turn up and immediately get to work on a scheme hinging on one of its crew members banging a green chick.
