Re: VOY S7: Repression

I was actually quite enjoying it until the end. The obvious problem being there wasn't one. It had an Act 1, 2, 3, 4... and then an epilogue.

All set up and no pay-off. What was it building to? What was the point of it? Very underwhelming.

Re: VOY S6: The Voyager Conspiracy

Really surprised how many people didn't like this one. I loved it. It's a fun, interesting, character-driven piece that puts a fun twist on past events (to the point of being meta) and examines real world issues.

People are complaining that Janeway and Chakotay should never have believed Seven, but they would have been plain irresponsible not to consider her theories POSSIBLE.

My only real gripe it that I felt this has way more traction for just a single episode. Could easily have been a two-parter and drawn out some of the conspiratorial intrigue a bit.

Re: VOY S6: Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy

Not just a fun episode but - as someone who daydreams A LOT - a relatable one.

Re: VOY S6: Barge of the Dead

Mostly agree with the review. I was a bit apprehensive early on as soon as it was clear things were a dream/illusion/going to be undone, but it turned into a sound and well done character piece.

My only quibbles:

1 - It does feel like we've been here before - B'Elanna has to learn to accept her self. When her mum said "You've taken yoyr first step..." I though "THAT'S her FIRST step?" Has she not learned anything from all her previous episodes treading the same ground?

2 - More a general quibble about B'Elanna as a character, but does she ACTUALLY have a bad attitude? Her 'aggression' and 'quick temper' feel much more like traits we are simply informed about (a lot!) rather than ones we ever see really play out. She's had many small confrontations with other characters (Tom, Seven and Chokotay most often) over the years where I've thought "A genuinely short-tempered person would have bitten their heads off there' but she responds positively diplomatically.

Re: VOY S5: Warhead

Meh, it was decent enough. Got a bit predictable, I suppose, after the Doc was possessed but to my mind it did what a Trek episode is meant to do - raise and explore an interesting 'What if' scenario. Which I'd say it did. I'm a bit bemused by all the negativity.

My only real quibbles are:

1. Why is a night shift considered a quiet period? Surely the chances of Voyager running into anything Dramatic are the same no matter what time of day?

2. Seriously, how long has Harry been awake?
