Re: VOY S7: Shattered

When Janeway noted at the end that she knew where Chakotay hid the wine in the cargo bay, was she implying that her memories were intact?

If you recall it was something mentioned by future Icheb in the astrometrics lab...

Re: VOY S6: Virtuoso

I have to respectfully disagree with Jammer's contention that the characterization of the Qomar belongs "in the dumpster." Yes, they are annoying, but I think that that's exactly what the writer's, director, etc. were shooting for... I found their awkward rudeness to be hilarious, in keeping with the overall level of absurdity showcased in this episode. The fact that they were all so short was a nice touch as well - it's little touches like that that are so effective in creating interesting alien societies.

Jammer tends to prefer scenes advancing important ethical dilemmas and grand philosophical questions. Perhaps in cases like these one needs to step back and enjoy the absurdity of it all - A whole society becomes obsessed, "fanatics" as Seven puts it, with the Doctor. I mean, c'mon, this is a patently ridiculous scenario!

I do wish the Captain used her leverage - access to the Doctor - to the crew's advantage more. If the Qomar were so advanced, perhaps Janeway could have negotiated for an exchange of technology or something else useful for the crew's journey.
