Re: VOY S3: Distant Origin

Some of the archaelogical facts in this episode are wrong.

They say that humans and hadrosaurs evolved from Eryops, both of which almost certainly aren't true. And that it lived in the Devonian Era 400 million years ago. Actually it is from the Permian Era about 295 million years ago. Reptiles didn't even evolve on Earth until 310-320 million years ago.

A better fit would have been some sort of early synapsid or therapsid species, from somewhere around 250-320 million years ago.

But, I guess that's not that important for the episode. :D

The fact that they have had this 'doctrine' for at least 20 million years is pretty unbelievable. Any species would have had significant societal and cultural changes over that time. Not to mention evolving physical and mentally. That's a long ass time.

And after being so technologically powerful for millions upon millions of years, they would be known everywhere in the galaxy I would assume, if not absolute rulers of it.

If you completely overlook the silliness of the whole setup, it's a decent episode.

3 stars.
