Re: VOY S3: Rise

C'mon. It wasn't that bad. Time spent in the company of Tuvok is always good. The majority of the episode was spent in Neelix/Tuvok's perspective, so i didn't have a big problem with the lack of explication about what was going on. I was just along for the ride to the ionosphere.

Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

Oooph. Almost any Star Trek episode that attempts to delve into quasi-mystical or supernatural concepts fails badly.

Beyond all that though, it truly is a meaningless episode. It doesn't advance the story of Voyager at all, nor those of any of the characters involved. A real waste of airtime.

Re: VOY S7: Body and Soul

Ryan's Doc impersonation is one of the highlights of all seven seasons. Very fun episode.

Re: VOY S2: Tattoo

No mention of Beltran nearly breaking character and being on the verge of laughter for half the episode? That was the best part. :P

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

This certainly could have been a fascinating episode. Your analysis of the short-changing that the 'Tuvix dilemma' gets is spot on. I believe the Kes angle was basically intended to be a device for taking some heat off of Janeway. Remember, Kes basically comes to Janeway right before she takes Tuvix away and pleads for Neelix to be returned to her. This wasn't fleshed out that well (like most of the episode) but I think that was one intent of that story-arc.

I wonder if the producers were concerned that the more philosophical aspects of this episode would confuse or bore viewers? It's very unfortunate that such a great opportunity was missed.

Stefan, in the previous comment, makes a great point. The episode is held back primarily by the brevity afforded to the interesting issue, but the reaction of the entire crew is bewildering. Another thing that bothered me.. Tuvix, for having the knowledge and ostensibly some of the intellectual power of Tuvok did very little to argue for his life.

I know it would never fly, especially in only the second season of the show, but this could have easily been a two-parter (the second hour dealing mostly with the psychological repercussions of Tuvix's murder on the crew, Janeway and Tuvok especially).

I like the Tuvok character, but being rid of Neelix was a fair exchange. ;)
