Re: VOY S7: Repentance

I find amusing how so many people think of themselves as enlightened when they condemn someone to prison for the rest of their lives. They can't seem to understand how "barbaric" their beliefs are, putting people in cages for 40 years.

Not that killing someone is more enlightened, I just pity the people who dogmatically believe (and this is the problem, dogma) putting people in jail for 40 years is the only real acceptable choice.

Re: VOY S5: Nothing Human

Regarless of the technical questions which are beyond absurd, the main problem I had with this episode was "The Doctor".

"The Doctor" is not even human, and yet in his discussion with the Cardassian he "knows" what is the right side of the argument. Childish. We are talking about a computer, programmed by Zimmerman who wasn't a particular emphatic man, who has this childish notion of good vs evil, light vs dark. Absurd.

Well, even more childish is Torres' reaction. For gods sakes, it was an hologram, not the real doctor. He would rather die? Give me a break, that's just stupid.

Kill 100 to save 100 000? Not an easy call to make, even in the 24th century.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Janeway is insane and should be relieved from duty. Her stance accomplishes nothing, the prey will still die as will everyone in her crew.

The writers should have made the situation more ambiguous, but Voyager was far too outgunned to keep Janeway's decision sane. One thing is to protect the prey even if there is risk, but we are not talking just "risk" here. In this case the outcome was clear, they would die protecting the prey. Doesn't make sense, and makes Janeway a dangerous individual, not someone you want as a captain.

Re: VOY S3: The Q and the Grey

This episodes makes the Q too human. It's a ridiculous premise to have omnipowerful and eternal being act the same way as humans.

I have to admit the Q have shown too many human traits even in TNG, but this one goes completly overboard with the female Q age jokes and jeoulesy.

In general I have a hard time accepting eternal beings getting enfatuated with humans, like all the vampire novels or in this episode. We should be like children to them, silly little children.
