Re: VOY S3: Distant Origin

One other possibility perhaps is that if the dinosaur species was originally abducted by Delta quadrant aliens and traveled through many worlds and evolved before getting to the Delta quadrant *and* these dinosaur creatures were originally slave creatures to the abducting aliens, then maybe that would be a reason to deny their origin. That would be a pretty big story, but maybe it could work....

Re: VOY S3: Distant Origin

Normally, I'm ra-ra over episodes that people here generally don't like, and here it's a bit of the opposite. This is mostly a very interesting and good episode, but the writers left a major lacuna. A species that could leave earth with space technology is also one that would have mastered written records (long before leaving Earth). So how is that the Voth don't have a record among themselves of having traveled from a distant quadrant?

Much better is the alternative suggested by a comment above that these dinosaur creatures were abducted by an alien species from the Delta quadrant. But if so, then you can't have Chakotay's moving statement about the Voths having traveled and survived many worlds before arriving at their new permanent home in the Delta quadrant.

Given these severe inconsistencies, the only out is to say that at some point historically, the Voth leaders decided to erase their historical record of their long journey to space. But this was not even hinted at during the episode and no explanation was established as to why that decision to erase historical memory was made.

Re: VOY S3: Rise

Loved this episode. Fun and original. Got to see Neelix and Tuvok in a new kind of situation. I thought the supporting characters and the setting were very interesting, kept me in suspense as to what would happen next.

Re: VOY S3: Unity

Such an interesting episode and one where Chakotay stars. Yay!

Just wanted to give shout out to the romantic tension between Chakotay and Frazier. Well played. And one does get to believe that she is kind and well-intentioned, which gives the ending a bit of a chilling tone. Still, I'd like to believe, as Sean Higgins here puts it, that the New Collective does figure a way to strike a balance that preserves individual freedom.
