Re: VOY S2: Basics, Part I

I'm re-watching Voyager after many years and after getting to this episode I find it's a wonder they didn't just can the series entirely at this point. A dull season that ends in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The crew comes across as laughably stupid in losing the ship to Seska and the Kazon. Despite obvious signs of a trap, they just keep meandering forward, no one even considering what damage to the "secondary command processors" even means.

Why is the ship still near the Kazon at all? The pilot episode explains to us that the ship has a maximum cruising velocity of warp 9.975. Are we to believe that the Kazon, who still haven't figured out how to produce water, somehow have warp technology that puts the Federation to shame?

This episode, and most of the second season, really exemplifies the Star Trek writers fatigue the series was facing at the time. It's a shame, because the series concept was an interesting one, but its execution left a lot to be desired.
