Re: VOY S4: Retrospect

Everyone here arguing whether Kovin may or may not have been guilty, while that's of no consequence. The problem isn't that the story as written makes no sense: it does. The problem is that they should have written a different story.

What about writing an episode where a woman's TRUE rape accusations are not taken seriously, which is not only more realistic (unreported rapes are far, far, far more frequent than false accusations) but also more in line with Voyager's ethos as a whole?

For all its great emphasis on social and political justice, the show has a truly bad track record about violence against women. (Blood Fever is another offender, though to a lesser degree than this mess of an episode).

I often use "Retrospect" in my ethics classes, and students are almost universally appalled by it.

Re: TNG S7: Dark Page

Completely agreed with Luke and those in the "love it" camp. To me this is the highlight of season 7 and among the top 30 episodes in the series. I suppose that it is because it resonates so well with me on an emotional level; put simply, I "buy it," surely a lot more than Jammer's cynicism in the original review.
