Re: VOY S7: Workforce

I noticed the bat'leth replacement too, and that annoyed me as well.

Re: VOY S7: Workforce

So the Doctor with a few subprograms suddenly becomes an engineer, fixing the ship by himself, and a captain, and tactition, etc. Why have any other crew? Add a few more subprograms and turn him into the terminator and send him down for away missions from now on. Or make him into whatever you need at the time. Need a pilot? Subprogram. Need a geologist? Subprogram. Need a character that makes sense? No such luck.

And he wins the space battle against the 2 ships, whose shields they can't penetrate btw, by shooting a photon torpedo between them, disabling both ships with it's 'photonic shockwave'. From now on all photon torpedoes just need to be shot somewhere near the enemy, shields be damned I guess. Why bother trying to actually hit anything? Another Voyager contrivance, never before seen or ever seen again. But when they are being attacked later by 3 ships, he has no clue what to do. And Kim has to save the day by finding and placing and arming photon torpedoes into the escape pods and masking the life signs on Voyager, then launching the pods, all in like 30 seconds.

Most of the people who work at the factory or whatever it was, aren't brainwashed. So why do none of them say a word about the fact that 130 odd people of a species they have never heard of or seen before, from a planet so far away that no one has ever even heard of it, suddenly show up for work all on the same day? I know if a bunch of aliens showed up at my work one day, I'd ask a couple questions. Especially if one is a Borg who is now my boss.

And all these hundreds or thousands of people all come here to this dismal place just for a job? They can't get a job on their own planets? What the hell sort of planets are they from? They obviously all have some sort of technical expertise.

The fact that Janeway meets, sleeps with, falls in love with, and moves in with that guy, all in like a week is pretty lame. I could have done without all of that nonsense, especially since she just dismissed it all unceremoniously at the end.

And since the bad guys disabled Voyager and took the whole crew, why would they leave a super advanced starship just drifting around in space? Wouldn't they have taken it? They could have used Voyager to capture all sorts of ships without using mines and all that other elaborate crap. Or at least stripped it down for parts and supplies or something. Abandoning it makes no sense.

Not to mention some of the other things that other people pointed out above.

So much of this episode makes no sense.

1 1/2 stars

Re: VOY S7: The Void

So the doctor and the twitchy alien ratman both learn a brand new made up musical language well enough to speak to each other fluently, even telling jokes, in a few hours, or a day, or whatever it was. Right.

And some of these ships have been here for years and can't find one or more of the ratpeople hidden on their ship in all that time? Right.

anyway, 2 stars from me.
