Re: VOY S7: Human Error

Jammer, I appreciate your frustration, but you gotta remember that Voyager wasn't ever meant to be a show that wants to progress it's characters in notable. There's the odd long-term development here and there, but anything that disrupts the status quo isn't something this show will ever take on. 7 seasons in I don't feel it's fair anymore to judge this show on hitting the reset button, because we all know it has done so and will be doing so until it's last episode.

I thought this was an amazing episode. It delved into some of the inner life of Seven and had a lot of great subtle touches. The whole thing was delved with very tasefully, in the end Janeway and the rest of the crew didn't even know what was going on with Seven with makes the ending that much more tragic. I loved the little things like Seven projecting her anger on Borg Boy (I will never remember his name) and that she chose Chakotay to be her imaginary lover (which makes total sense but is still a very odd sight if I've ever seen one).

The ending, I'm not totally fond on the fact that the writers invented some sort of drone-emotion-protection tool to eventually stunt Seven's journey. It wasn't necessary, but without it I feel the decision she made still would've made sense. It's not like the ending of this episode automatically dictates that Seven will be forever emotionally repressed. It's more of a too-much-too-soon message and I can get in line with that. But it was really good to see the show deal with this issue before it went out because it's such a very interesting aspect to her personality that was always hinted at but never fully realized. 3.5 stars from me.
