Re: VOY S1: Faces

It's sad how Voyager never seems to give any of their scripts more than just a first draft. They seem to get a single basic idea and run with it. Forget common sense and plot holes and explaining why anyone does or does not do something.

My vision of the writer's meeting for this episode...

'What is the Chief Surgeon of the Vidiian Sodality doing in some random prison living in a cave harvesting organs? Wouldn't he be on their home world doing something more important?' 'I don't know, but it's sounds cool doesn't it? Chief Surgeon of the Vidiian Sodality!?'

'How does the machine make 2 separate people from one set of dna?' 'Aliens built it so we don't have to explain that.'

'Why don't they use the machine to make organs or clones or whatever all the time?' 'We only need it to split Torres, nevermind what else it can do.'

'How can the prisoners hide out in a cave, lighting fires, and cooking dinner that they apparently hunted down, and having long philosophical conversations with themself, with guards searching all over for them?' 'Because we need a scene where Torres talks to herself.'

'How can they get through the force field to get in?' 'It has holes in it obviously.'

'If they can beam someone in, why can't they beam the prisoners out?' 'They are one way holes obviously, but we won't mention anything about that in the show.'

'How does Torres decipher that alien control panel in like 2 minutes and take down the force field?' 'Because she's Torres, that's how.'

'How does the Doc restore Torres?' 'Because he's the Doc. Just have him babble someting about dna.'

'Why doesn't Janeway retaliate in anyway when they just killed a member of her crew and she said before she would kill them if they did it again?' 'Oh, did she say that? Let's pretend she didn't.'

'Shouldn't they rescue the other prisoners?' 'What other prisoners?'

'Should we have the crew have a funeral service for Durst?' 'Who?'

'Since both the Doc who knows alot about klingons, and the chief surgeon who knows all about the phage, are in the same place, shouldn't we have Voyager try to help them cure it?' 'No, then we can't use the cool vidiian makeup again later.'

'How about we have Neelix make some vulcan soup?' 'Brilliant!'

'Let's film this thing!'
