Re: VOY S3: Unity

A few scientists invent a way to link their thoughts to speed up their research. It works really well and they get other people at their research facility to try it. The research facility starts running at an incredible pace and begins making incredible finds thanks to the unity they've achieved with the new invention. As the invention gets used more, those using it lose more and more of their individuality into the collective they've created and lose empathy or understanding as to why any scientists at the facility wouldn't want to use the invention and join them when they could be serving the collective and making more discoveries. Soon, the collective starts forcibly making other scientists to use the invention, and eventually, non scientists, to grow and strengthen the collective with the most benevolent intentions. Not a stretch to think this is how the Borg came to be.

Re: VOY S5: Someone to Watch Over Me

Some of this episode fell off into the land of corniness, but everything involving the ambassador was absolutely hilarious. The duet was cringy, but otherwise the dating lessons felt natural. Definitely up there for me. Relatable and melancholy ending.

Re: VOY S5: Course: Oblivion

Biggest problem with this episode: The copies can't breathe oxygen (see Demon). You'd think doc woulda noticed that.

Re: VOY S4: The Killing Game

I thought this was wildly goofy, and part two seriously lost focus, but it was all around extremely fun and seeing Paris and Chakotay in the army tent was hilarious and awesome. Generally a creative premise and in my eyes and entertaining two parter. Good Trekian fun.

Re: VOY S3: Before and After

I'm really surprised at how much people liked this one. This was in my opinion one of the weakest in the series and left me feeling kind of betrayed. Hard to put the feeling more into words than that, but just left behind.

And RIP Kes's hair.

Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

I actually liked part 2 better than part 1, but that might just be because I was really turned off at the beginning by the central premise of "we're in the 90s woooooaaah!"

I'm not sure how I feel about the doctor being able to move around freely. He was a total badass in this episode and his "divine intervention" entrance was amazing, but he has a niche on the show and it felt not quite right having him play action hero.

I think my problem with both of these episodes is that they didn't feel grounded, and having doc wandering the streets of LA kind of exemplifies that.

Thought: this must have been the cheapest episode to film. Just go into your backyard (downtown LA) and start filming.

Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

I have to give this a 0. The entire story felt contrived and none of the characters seemed true to themselves. Kes is not so stupid that she'd run into a sacred shrine. I thought they were going with a psychic thing where she could hear the spirits, but that's never explored and so it just flows like one random event following another for a frustrating 45 minutes. This is the first episode of the show I've had trouble sitting through. If it all is explainable by science in the end then the monks scolding her ends up being meaningless.
