Re: VOY S3: The Swarm

Forgot to mention the bridge crewman who died too. So having a person die, and a bunch of aliens die, is totally worth getting home a little sooner. Great job Janeway!

Re: VOY S3: The Swarm

Why didn't the aliens kill Torres and Paris? They killed everyone on that other ship they find (except for the one conviently left alive to explain what happened of course), and were trying to kill everyone on Voyager later apparently, so why would they leave those two alive? I'm guessing it was sort of a message like 'that's your first and final warning, now leave, or else', since they also later say 'too late, should have listened'.

Janeway enters their space anyway, when clearly she shouldn't for several reasons. The implicit warning not to, which Janeway promptly ignores. Regulations say she shouldn't, which Janeway also ignores, and obviously this is an incredibly dangerous area as Neelix had warned her, which Janeway ignores. But, yeah, they're somehow bullies so who cares? Let's violate their territory and risk everyone's life to save some time. And when all is said and done ends up having murdered who knows how many of them to do it. But hey, they saved a few months right? Worst captain ever.

And good thing Voyager happened upon their territory, which covers 'hundreds of sectors', right at the one place that only takes 4 days to cross.

As far as the Doc scrubbing up before doing the procedure on Paris, of course that's ridiculous on it's face, but especially so, considering all he ever does is wave magic wands in people's general direction anyway.

Kes begging them to try to save the Doc is silly as well, because of course they would have tried to do that in the first place, not jump automatically to 'reset him'. And if they had an EMH diagnostic program, why wouldn't they do that immediately instead of debating things, then having Torres doing a bunch of tests and putzing around for who knows how long?

And I also find it very frustrating that there is no way to copy a computer program in the future for some reason. Using the diagnostic matrix to fix the Doc will destroy it forever. Why? Ugh.

The Doc's program uses 50 million gigaquads, so adding 15 thousand gigaquads to it wouldn't seem like it would be that big of a deal. That's only a .03% increase in size. But who knows with gigaquads, I suppose.

At the end the aliens are trying to capture the ship, and their big plan is to beam one single guy over, and get him shot, then beam one more over, and get him shot, then beam one more single guy over, and have him shot. Great plan aliens! Next time beam like 100 guys at once maybe, heck, even 5 at once probably would have done it.

So yeah. A pretty lame episode. The Doc plot gets a 2 and the swarm plot gets a 1.

1 1/2 stars overall from me.
