Re: VOY S7: Endgame

We were thinking that a good ending would have the only change in the timeline be that "Joe" gets an ugly wife at the reunion party.

Re: VOY S7: Inside Man

DPC - The admiral said it would take 2 hours to go 0.7 light years. That will be 2.86 hours (approximately) to go 1 light year.

2.86 hours/lightyear*30,000 lightyears (or 35,000, depending on the episode) = 85714 hours

85714 hours/24 hours day = 3571 days (rounded)

About a little less than 10 years (about 9.8 years). This is at full speed for that ship. Not sure how fast that ship could go, but it is over 3 times as fast as Voyager. Has technology improved that much?

Re: VOY S5: Think Tank

I liked this one. Yeah, some of it could have been guessed. George Costanza did go for blondes.

Given the think-tank members, I bet Curros was a Marine Biologist.

Re: VOY S5: Once Upon a Time

I liked this episode. The look into how a children's world in TNG and their fairy tales added a bit more to the social milieu of ST.

On the big HD screen there were amazing colors in the fairy tale land that may not have not been seen earlier. To me the story seemed very Ozish. Flotter (flowing water mix?) character was the scarecrow, Trevis reminded me of the tin man (somehwat), and the fire ogre was very wizardish.

The rest of the story? Killing off the mother would have been interesting. I thought that maybe some kind of development between seven and the child would have been interesting.

I did like the child's point of view of the bridge, as well. The rest of the story... well it could have been better.

Re: VOY S3: Distant Origin

I saw this first the first time. Loved the Voth perspective. One of the best Trek episodes I have seen. I can't really think of a weakness from a Sci-Fi or Trek perspective. It was superb. I think Jammer must have been influenced by the preview too much and how much he hated it. He came from a 'bad' place and it improved. I believe if he came from a 'neutral' place, it would be a 4 star episode.

The Voth seemed like the advanced culture that they were. Not deaths but detentions. The threats were based on 'losing' honors, position, or prestige.

4/4 stars for me. One of the most thoughtful and socio-philosophical episodes I've seen on Trek.

Re: VOY S2: Threshold

This is my first comment for any of the reviews for any of the shows. But, thought I'd put in my two cents.

This is one of the few Voyager shows that intrigued me to see it to the very end. This is what Sci Fi is about. I agree that it was silly, but it kept me interested! I believe they did the right things, but not necessarily for the Trek Universe, nor for the premise/mission of the show, but for sci fi in general.

Why do I say this. Because I think they stole the 'plot' twist at the end from one of the best science fiction writers of all time, Kurt Vonnegut. In the book Galapagos Vonnegut has the people 'evolving' to seals (but it was a product of their environment, which is what evolution is all about). So if you are in space you will evolve into a slug. Why? Because slugs travel through space more easily.
