Re: VOY S5: Gravity

@Elliott: Whether or not I'm 'experienced with this kind of situation' is irrelevant. Do I believe people fall in love or have difficulty with feelings? Of course. Do I believe Tuvok would suddenly have all these feelings for Noss in the episode? Not for one second. And sometimes, just because you have feelings for someone doesn't mean you have to act on them. We all know Vulcans have emotions so it's nothing new. I could see Tuvok respecting Noss and becoming unique and special friends but true love? No way. Even if it was love, Tuvok had the right to cover it in any way he saw fit, just like we do in real life all the time.

Re: VOY S5: Gravity

And one other thing, she loves him and he makes it clear that he's not interested. Sorry lady, that means you're out of luck. But she goes off about hating logic and all this like that crazy woman in that episode of TNG that kept yelling at Picard "LOVE ME! WHY WON'T YOU LOVE ME!" So Tuvok is supposed to love her too because she loves him? Huh? That's just creepy. A relationship has to be between two willing parties. Then, to make matters worse, Tom interrupts Tuvok's meditation yelling at him for not loving her back. Tuvok has the right to love, not love, act, or not act as he sees fit without Tom treating him like a child. The more I think about this episode, the more I hate it.

Re: VOY S5: Gravity

I really hate this episode. The whole 'love story' thing is repulsive. Just because you're stranded means you abandon your existing life within a few days? Just because she's female and you're male means you are required to get it on? WTF? Why is Tom hounding Tuvok over his buried feelings? Just because someone has feelings doesn't mean you act on them.

Maybe if they were stranded for many years a relationship could naturally develop as it becomes more unlikely that they'll be rescued. But this is all too rushed and comes across as cheating.

In another episode when Tuvok must work through his Pon Far with a hologram he states that the treatment was effective, "but no substitute for my wife." THAT was Tuvok, this is not. The love story/feelings nonsense shoehorned in ruins what would otherwise be an interesting episode.

Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

This episode starts out fantastically. Then, I found it just petered out and the ending was such a letdown. I mean, after a neat mystery plot, the resolution is to let him rant until he figures it out on his own? Let's sit in the bare holodeck for hours? I really dislike this episode now.

I agree with another poster how Kes should have been mentioned and Janeway's hair and Tuvok's rank altered to reflect the time period. It's like they didn't even try. And Ensign Jetal comes out of nowhere even though she was so liked that the crew, including the senior staff, throw her a birthday party.

I think what drives me crazy is how this decision that the doctor can't come to terms with is so weak. He's dealt with way worse. Two patients will never be the same and have the exact diagnosis and prognosis. The Doctor goes on and on about the decisions in life yet he's been programmed to make decisions and we've seen him do it before. Every time I see this episode, I say, "Kim is a frickin bridge officer! He's part of the senior staff!" Kim takes priority if both patients are the 'same'.

Re: VOY S6: Virtuoso

In contrast to other comments, I think this is one of the worst episodes of Voyager. It's just horrible and does nothing than diminish the Doctor's character. He comes across as petty, disloyal, uncaring, superficial, and self-centered. In season seven's "Flesh and Blood", the Doctor at least was torn because his 'people' were being persecuted. In this crappy episode, he doesn't care about anyone else but himself and his 'fame'. Moreover, the aliens are one of the most uninteresting and annoying Voyager has ever had. Terrible episode.

Re: VOY S6: Equinox, Part II

One scene I have never understood is that scene where Ransom's ship heads into the atmosphere of the planet and Voyager follows it too. Then, for some reason, Voyager can't sustain the atmosphere anymore and must ascend while the Equinox was fine. But Equinox was a smaller ship and had suffered more damage. Voyager is the one that loses warp drive after that while the Equinox warps away. Makes no sense.

The other thing that makes no sense in this scene is the whole scene itself. Why was the Equinox going into the atmosphere in the first place? And why would Voyager follow them down? Why wouldn't Voyager just stay above them in orbit where it's safe and wait for them to come back up? They would be able to see them the entire time! After like 14 years I still don't get it.

Re: VOY S6: Riddles

This episode REALLY needed Tuvok to say "thank you" to Neelix at the end and continue the unique friendship. I got so tired of the reset to where Tuvok 'tolerated' Neelix. If I were Neelix, that would piss me off. The writers really had an opportunity to show that friendship and bonds come in a all shapes and sizes.
