Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

Oops. I did say he invented the holo-emitter. Which I assume he did. Because why would the time ship have one of those lying around? He only had it after the Doc appeared. But who knows?

Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

I only said he invented win95, which was a joke. :) Earlier in the post I said he hadn't invented anything himself.

Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

Torres says she is replacing the 20% of the programs (which on Voyager would be quite a bit!) taken by Starling. How? Do they have backups on an external harddrive? Not that when he 'took' them, they would just disappear in the first place. But the only one she can't replace is the Doc, because I guess they have backups for the air conditioning system or whatever, but not practically the single most important program on board.

And Starling says that the Doc's program isn't 'that sophisticated'. Really? In 1996 a holographically projected artificially intelligent doctor isn't 'that sophisticated'? Ok.

Starling adds pain to the Doc's program in what must be about 1/2 hour. How would he have the slightest idea how to modify an artificially intelligent being's program, that he had never seen or even imagined existed before about an hour ago, to feel pain?

And also in that same 1/2 hour, he has invented and manufactured a mobile holo-emitter for the Doc. Of course he did.

Starling is willing, despite all of Janeway's warnings, to risk his own life, and the life of his bodyguard guy, not to mention billions of other people's lives, just to invent a few more things? I don't buy it for a second. In this show he is basically the equivalent of Bill Gates (who also stole everything he supposedly 'invented', but we won't get into that) and do you think Gates would risk that? Of course not. He has everything any human being on earth could ever want, so why risk losing it all? Doesn't make much sense.

When Chakotay and Torres are held prisoner by the militants (of all things), Tuvok and the Doc show up outside. The building is surrounded by police. Why? Who called them? The militants? Tuvok? Wut? Why are they there?

POLICE: We want the aircraft, and the occupant from the aircraft.
PORTER: Get off my land!
TORRES: What are they going to do when they find a half-Klingon in here.
POLICE: Who the hell are you two?
TUVOK: Please stand aside, Officer.
POLICE I'm warning both of you to...
PORTER: They've got lasers! A black man and some bald guy.

And then the Doc comes into the basement. So did Tuvok and the Doc shoot all the cops? I guess so. I don't know anymore what's going on in this episode.

Janeway decides to do a manual launch of the photon torpedoes. Fine. But are you telling me that there is that option, of doing a manual launch of them, but that the person has to stand next to the torpedo and push a button on it and then die, or almost die? Seriously? We are expected to believe that that's how they designed the manual launch of a photon torpedo? lol.

Also before that happened, Torres had gotten transporters back online and transported everyone from earth back to Voyager. So why didn't they just transport the timeship into a shuttle bay which was their plan all along?

Finally I want to summarize what Starling did/had in these two episodes.

He had a 29th century timeship, that he somehow recovered from out in the middle of nowhere without anyone knowing, all by himself.

He studied it for two years and made some microchip thingy.

After 30 years he had invented WIN95 for computers.

He also had a phaser, that could disintegrate pretty much anything it shot at.

He had a tricorder. That he sort of knew how to work.

He could create forcefields.

He had a satellite in orbit around the earth that had transporter technology, that allowed him to beam himself anywhere at will, through Voyager's shields as well.

He had the ability to create holograms, using holo-emitters and mobile emitters.

He was able to attack and disable Voyager, and steal their programs, including the Doc.

He can make a temporal transponder to fake tachyon signals.

So why isn't this guy the Emperor of Earth? He has no conscience at all, and is a clear sociopath, and can perform miracles, by 1996 standards. He would have taken over the planet by now.

Also another episode where nothing on Voyager works. Weapons, transporter, communications. Ridiculous.

This episode is terrible. I was going to give it 1 star, but after rereading my own post I have to give it...

1/2 star.
