Initiations - 2
Persistance of Vision - 2
Prototype - 2
Alliances - 2

Lifesigns - 2
Deadlock - 2
Basics Pt. 1 - 2
The 37's - 1.5

Non Sequitur - .5
Parturition - .5
Elogium - 0
Threshold - 0
The Thaw - 0

Average rating - 1.65

For me this season was all over the place, but mostly bad. Tuvix, Meld, and Projections were the only 3 episodes I truly liked.

It beats out season 1 which I had as an average of 1.53, mostly due to those 3 episodes. Though I only had one show last season with a zero score, Cathexis, and this season I had 3 zeros.

Re: VOY S2: Basics, Part I

As far as the baby goes, the decision to go after it was foolish at best. First of all, there is no proof that the baby is Chakotay's whatsoever, besides Seska's word. And risk 150 lives to go save a baby that may or not be his, and may or not be a trap? No way. And what were they going to do when they got there, kidnap it? Even if it's Chakotay's baby, they were just going to go there and rip it out of it's mother's arms and raise it on Voyager? Or kidnap both the baby and Seska? Either way, not something a captain should do. Stealing babies isn't very Starfleet.

And Chakotay 'talking' with his father. Either Chakotay is totally insane, or his religion has the true answer to the afterlife, or it was somehow metaphorical, with Chakotay talking to himself, which would also make him sort of insane. None of which are good.

If Seska or the Kazon were so intent on capturing Voyager, why didn't they do this a long time ago? All it took was a few raids, then an assault to take total control of Voyager. At least make it so they had some new information or something. And as others have said, including me, apparently Seska has been somehow following Voyager for months now, or else they would be nowhere near them.

Someone also please explain how Neelix knows every single fact about every single race, and planet, and moon, and plant and whatever else, within 1000 light years of his planet?

And I thought this humorous-

JANEWAY: Hold your fire, Mister Tuvok. They may have torpedoes to waste. We don't.

LOL. Since they have already fired off more than they ever had.

And why would the Kazon be fooled by holographic ships that just miraculously appear in the middle of a battle? I could almost halfway understand it if they had the holoships around before they contacted them, but in the middle of a fight? Silly.

How did that Kazon suicide bomber pull a three inch needle out of his toenail (when he had removed the toenail first, in case anyone forgot)? One of those futuristic collapsible syringes I guess.

Boy those Kazon ships were HUGE! Like 1000 times the size of Voyager. How didn't they capture Voyager 40 episodes ago?

And Paris managed to escape in a shuttle in the middle of a huge space battle. Whatever.

Also, finally, why did they not notice the serial killer in the hydroponics bay? They found everyone else.

I'm really getting sick of Voyager's silliness.

2 stars.

Re: VOY S2: Cold Fire

I like Kes, and this episode wasn't bad, except the ending as most people said.

The Nacene aren't that powerful apparently if all it takes is a barely trained Ocampa, an anti-sporocystian gun (lol), and a forcefield to kill one.

Can a forcefield even hold a being that can travel through sub-space? I have no idea. I guess it can though.

My major problem is that they finally had an interesting character, Kes, on the ship and they totally drop the whole plotline. All of her newly gotten powers just magically disappear. Well, for 2 years anyway. The whole 'Kes becoming a god' thing could have been pretty cool if it was a recurring plot.

2 1/2 stars.

Re: ENT S2: The Expanse

To be clear the Xindi weapon cut through southern Florida, then completely across Cuba, then on to Venezuela. That much is a fact from the show. It shows Cuba being cut right in half. But it could very possibly have hit Jamaica and/or Colombia and/or The Cayman Islands on the way. So it wasn't just an attack on the U.S.

Of course since the Enterprise crew is American and Tucker's sister was from Florida, they are going to focus more on America.

Good episode. 3 stars from me.
