Re: VOY S4: Demon

Many thoughts. If a sample of DNA was all that was necessary to totally replicate a person, personality, and memories, they should have dropped a bit of Seska or Vidiian DNA on them. Hehe. If the replicants are just like Voyager but need the other atmosphere to breathe, how did the Course Oblivion copies meet with other species or conduct away missions well enough to not notice they were copies? Questions for that episode I guess. Love that the next episode they can just replicate coffins... Er stasis units for the whole damn crew? It would have been awesome if, on the last episode, they had starfleet tour the ship and decks 9 to like 14 were empty caverns because all the metal and computer panels and carpet had been used to make shuttle craft that were then stupidly lost. Like in this episode.

Re: VOY S2: Threshold

Yep. Terrible. From the warp stuff to the DNA stuff. All bad.

But.

Some of the dialog for the win.

"Can you wake him? "
" Of course. WAKE UP, MR PARIS! "

"... Neelix's coffee."
" It's a wonder he's survived. "

" Here lies Thomas Eugene Paris, beloved mutant... Beloved radioactive mutant. "

Gold. Picard and McNeill nailed it. It's too bad the story was poo. We shall never speak of it again. Also, I wish Hollywood would stop trivializing head injuries--Janeway being knocked out that easily and that long really indicates some neural issues.

Re: VOY S3: Coda

Just watched this one again and I am with Tmrn--the story was simply incoherent. And, sadly pedestrian. Maybe tastes have evolved in drama in the intervening years, but if the only part that was "real" was the initial shuttle crash so Janeway didn't get revived from near death (and then stand up and start running around with Chakotay which should have been a clue that something wasn't copacetic), then what was the point of the other repetitions? In the "Cause and Effect" portion of the show, she and Chakotay die a few more times, make it to Voyager where only Janeway dies again, start again where she becomes a ghost which allows "The Next Phase" portion of the show to start. So, she wanders around, trying to convince her friends she is still alive, attends her own funeral with her "father" as a guide where she can imagine all the nice things people will say about her but conveniently halfway wake up to get some grounding in reality. A little fight and then the end--it was all a dream! But you get a rose and a moonlight sail with Chakotay out of it? Wha?

It just didn't make sense. Why the constant deaths, what was that supposed to indicate? Death wants to snack on your soul so instead of getting right to it after you've been killed by Vidiians, he takes the time to kill you four more times and then hang out with you and play "this is your life"? Kes having her little "feeling" and suddenly everyone is rushing around trying to find interdimensional Janeway despite the fact that her dead body is right there for all to see. Guess it is good to be the Captain, I can't remember anyone else being thought to be on a different frequency after a pretty typical death no matter who might "sense" them. All the Janeway/Chaoktay interpersonal stuff comes back from nowhere and disappears into the void--he is distraught trying to revive her but that was all in her head since that was her first "death" but the rose and invite for a moonlight sale were in reality so what the hell? Picardo was the best part of the episode.

Really, I want to make Jeri Taylor watch this one again and ask her where the hell she was trying to go with it because it is a confused mess. Horror story about how Death happens? Sci-fi time loop? It was all a dream but here are some cool character moments we can't do in reality? Because it was all and none of those things.
