Re: VOY S5: Thirty Days

I know that Paris was wrong to do what he did. Regardless of Voyager being stranded in the Delta quadrant, they still must adhere to the Prime Directive and not interfere in another alien race's problems, although, I have major qualms over the fact that Kathryn was willing to fire on her OWN OFFICER and claim that he forfeited his right of being a protected member of the crew because he violated a direct order from her and the PD? Uh, I call bs on that. Tuvok freaking stole a device from an alien race because he thought I could bring them home and Kathryn gave him a slap on the wrist. He was merely given a stern reprimand and, besides that, she left him alone. In this episode, however, she was going to destroy Tom and Friga - a member of the alien race whose affairs they cannot intervene in. Why didn't Kathryn tell Tuvok to fire on Tom's torpedo instead of the Delta Flyer itself? That would have been murder, plain and simple and inconsistent with Kathryn's character. The writers did a crap arse job with her development in this episode. She made the same kind of decision in Tuvix. I understand why some fans claim that she is bipolar. Why wouldn't they when there are episodes like this which rob her of her humanity? Smh...

Re: VOY S3: Blood Fever

I think that this episode was very well done and I liked the fact that Tom was holding back from taking advantage of B'Elanna, since he knew that it would destroy their frienship, possibly for good. He transcended his notorious playboy personality and actually had a growth moment here. I believe that, if it were any other female from Voyager stuck with him in the caves, he probably would have been more easily compelled to have sex with her. With B'Elanna, it's different, because he actually cares about her and when a guy has feelings for a woman, he wouldn't take advantage of her - well, if he were truly an honorable man. Tom did the right thing and resisted her. It's not particularly flattering or romantic to have sex with someone when it has no meaning. Tom would want B'Elanna to be truly herself, to actually desire him, and not be afflicted by a sickness that could kill her and is driving her to behave uncharacteristically. This is alluded to when he says, "I hope you say that to me one day and mean it." What a great guy.

I dislike what Vorik did to B'Elanna; it was an uninvited mental rape attack. I always kind of grimaced every time I saw him after this episode. I know he was dealing with pon farr and all, but that doesn't matter. I don't think that being afflicted with the pon farr is an excuse to attack someone. That is the main concept that I will never like about this episode. It reminds me of that scum in TNG who mentally raped Troi in the fifth season and put her in a coma. That episode pisses me off, too. Even more so because Troi couldn't protect herself and if Worf and his security team hadn't shown up right then, she would have been raped physically.

Anyway, the good thing was that B'Elanna kicked Vorik's butt and purged her blood fever. Because there was no way she was going to sleep with him. I highly doubt that Chakotay and Tuvok would have allowed that, and definitely not Janeway either. Roxann did a remarkable job in this episode, considering that she was a couple months pregnant at the time; Robert's performance was aces as well and I applaud their great job on this episode. Blood Fever also officially began the Tom/B'Elanna romantic arc, so it gets even higher marks from me. Plus, Roxann and Robert both like this episode and think fondly of it, so, for me, the subject is closed. Blood Fever rules and I love it. Peace out, folks.

Re: VOY S3: Blood Fever

I think that this episode was very well done and I liked the fact that Tom was holding back from taking advantage of Torres, since he knew that it would destroy their frienship, possibly for good. He transcended his notorious playboy personality and actually had a growth moment. I believe that, if it were any other female from Boyager stuck with him in the caves, he would have just had sex with her. With B'Elanna, it's different because he actually cares about her and when a guy has feelings for a woman, he wouldn't take advantage of her in this kind of situation. Tom did the honorable thing and rebuffed her. This episode made me love him even more because of the way he handled the situation. Yeah, I dislike what Vorik did to B'Elanna; it was akin to rape, yes. I always kind of grimaced every time I saw him after this episode. I don't think that being afflicted with the pon farr is not an excuse to attack someone. Anyway, the good thing was that B'Elanna kicked his butt and purged her blood fever. Because there was no way she was going to sleep with him. Ugh. Roxann did a remarkable job, considering that she was a couple months pregnant at the time.
