Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I think the thing that bothered me most, and this might seem trivial, but it was the first scene with Naomi Wildman's daughter. Harry talked to her, and Janeway patted her on the head... But they basically decided that her life was inconsequential. Yes maybe Naomi's life would have followed the same path, and she would have met the same guy and gotten pregnant at the same time - but what are the odds? Janeway took it upon herself to change the course of history, and wipe Naomi's daughter out of existence

I would have thought this episode was okay, if it wasn't for the extreme selfishness of Janeway. If she had been going back in time to prevent some horrible tragedy that affected all of humanity (like Picard in the TNG finale), that would have been one thing. But to go back in time, just to save three friends... Not that three friends aren't important, but it doesn't make sense. I have loved ones that I'd like to bring back, but I wouldn't put all of humanity at risk for it. And why not go back farther, and just destroy the array? Sure they wouldn't save (or even meet) 7 of 9,... but they would save countless others who died throughout the years.

Also, it reduced Janeway to the pathetic sadness of the captain in 'Year of Hell', who just kept trying over and over to restore his wife. Consequences be damned! It would have made more sense if there was some kind of consequence... For example, if Tuvok or Seven had died on the way home.

It didn't bother me that they didn't show what happened after the crew got home. I'd rather leave that up to my imagination, anyway.

Re: VOY S3: The Swarm

The ending bothered me too. Having seen the rest of the series, we know that his memory loss never really comes up again in any meaningful way. It also never happens again, even though he continues to expand his program. I don't think he shows up at all in the next episode, 'False Profits', so maybe he was recovering. (i.e. B'lana or Harry was recovering his memories and downloading them back into his file). It would have been nice if they had mentioned it though. I actually think it would have wrapped things up better if he had winked at Kes and B'lana at the end, and let them know he was joking.

Re: VOY S5: Nothing Human

Interesting episode, except that they're setting up a cardboard tiger. Why couldn't the doctor just download the info into his database? (He could have deleted some opera if he didn't have the room). And if it's so easy to create this guy, why has it been so difficult to create another doctor? In 'Message In a Bottle' they were unable to create another doctor, when they thought the Doc may have been lost. The whole thing is just annoying. (However if iI don't think about any of those incongruities, I can still think this is an okay episode).

Re: VOY S1: Time and Again

Isn't the universal translator built into the com badges? How does Janeway and Paris keep talking to the aliens after the com badges are taken? Apparently the aliens not only look exactly like humans, but they speak English. (The universal translator doesn't make sense anyway, but that's a different discussion).

Re: VOY S4: Day of Honor

Wasn't it the episode right before this one (The Gift) where Kes supposedly pushed them safely out of Borg space? Oops, I guess not. Not only did they devastate the Cataati, but we see the Borg for the whole rest of the series.

The Cataati were horrible. If Janeway can find the means to provide food and a clean ship for her crew, with absolutely no resources or support from other ships, why can't they? They're too busy feeling sorry for themselves to get off their asses and figure out how to survive. If I was Janeway, I'd be very hesitant to help others after this experience.

The Torres/Klingon storyline didn't hold much interest for me. Torres has angst about her Klingon side, what a surprise. Yawn.

Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part II

Kes warned Captain Janeway about the Krenim in 'Before and After'. Janeway even patted her on the back and said 'Tell me more', and seemed to be paying attention to her. Did she just conveniently forget? Not my favorite episode. I have to admit, I actually preferred the future that Kes saw, where she hooked up with Tom and has a child and grandchild. (Rather than turning evil). I'm sure B'lanna could have found someone else.

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

I agree with almost everything Leah said. (Except the part about loving Kes - I really didn't care for her). I've always liked Neelix, although he was a bit annoying during his 'jealousy' years - but it was a relief when he got over that. And I thought he became a valuable and beloved member of the crew. I was sad to see him go, although I always thought it would be a bit weird for him to be the only Talaxian on Earth. I never really understood why he would want to go, except that his shame (regarding his actions during the war) propelled him to get as far away from Talax as possible. The one thing I really disliked was that he found his home in the dark, gloomy interior of an asteroid. He mentioned in several episodes how much he enjoyed the outdoors and fresh air - the asteroid was very depressing! I was happy that he found a new 'family' though.

Of course there were plot holes, which have already been mentioned (how did the Talaxians get so far from home? They never mention a wormhole, or anything of the sort), but I can forgive that. Typical Star Trek.

Re: VOY S7: Workforce

I really enjoyed these episodes - it was interesting to see the crew in another light. Tom Paris was very endearing in his role as protector of B'lanna, even though he didn't know who she was. (Poor B'lanna, those brainwashers were really jerks to make her a single mom. Why not keep her and Tom together as a family?). It would have been nice if Seven had displayed a bit more of her human side.

The one part that really annoyed me - Chakotay betraying the crew when he was captured. His personality up until now never would have allowed him to help the enemy trap his crew... And from what they showed, it didn't seem as though he had been drugged or tortured. It just seemed as though they captured him and he gave in... Very out of character.

Re: VOY S6: Spirit Folk

I've never respected Janeway less than in this episode. She refused to pull the plug on the holodeck to save two humans, because they might lose the program? They've already reprogrammed it once, obviously they can do it again! I actually liked the original episode of 'Fair Haven' (I'm an Irish girl at heart, so it was kind of fun), but this was too ridiculous.

Re: VOY S6: Pathfinder

The distance thing irritates me about this episode. They just jumped 5000 light years in the previous episode - how would Barclay know where to send the message? And Barclay is a terrible character. I can't believe they brought him back. Love the TNG crossover, but ANYONE would have been better than him!

I actually didn't mind the episode, and I liked that they made contact again - but jeez, Barclay's annoying.

Re: VOY S3: Worst Case Scenario

I loved Janeway's comment at the end 'Who says deus ex machine is an outmoded literary device?'. Or something to that effect. I felt like the writers were poking fun at themselves since they use it so often. :)

Overall I thought it was a fun episode! Nothing spectacular, but it was interesting to see Tom and Tuvok working together. And I kind of liked seeing Seska again. (Although I don't know why she would have done this before being discovered as a spy, she didn't know when/if Tuvok would access the story again. What if he opened it before she was discovered?).

Re: VOY S1: Faces

I agree with everyone who said they should have rescued the other prisoners. The fact that they left the Talaxian there, after he helped B'Elanna and gave her his own water in the mine, left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe they wouldn't have had time to rescue everyone, depending how many prisoners there were. (They can't transport that many people at once, and presumably the Vidiians would have ships on the way) but they could have at least locked on to the Talaxian. I felt bad for him standing there as the others walked away. I wonder what Neelix thought when/if he found out about it?

Overall though, I did like this episode. Interesting story and good drama.

Re: VOY S1: Caretaker

Am I missing something here? Janeway decides to destroy the array, but then leaves the Ocampa high and dry with only 5 years worth of energy reserves. What are they going to do after 5 years? (I know some of them are starting to farm outside the city and take care of themselves, but they're a fringe element. It would be hard to adapt the entire society in 5 years). Also, how are they going to maintain their force fields to keep the Kaizon out? Seems like she didn't put much thought into her decision, and it definitely doesn't seem worth stranding her crew in the Delta Quadrant. I know the whole premise of the show is being stranded in the Delta Quadrant, but it could have been more well-done.

Re: VOY S3: Macrocosm

I didn't mind the premise, and I thought Janeway made a pretty good badass. There were a few incongruities that bothered me though. First, why don't their transporter buffers automatically purge themselves when a virus is detected? Isn't that the point of the buffer? Second - why do the virus's only try to impale the Captain and the Doctor? If anyone else had been impaled there would be blood everywhere, and people in the mess hall would have severe injuries. Third - why aren't there any patients in sickbay? I know deck 2 was quarantined, but why wouldn't anyone else go there? The doctor didn't have one single patient, not even Kes.

I actually liked the flashback scenes, it was more interesting than just having the doctor describe what happened. And it was good to see the doctor expanding his horizons.

Re: VOY S2: Alliances

@Destructor - I just re-watched the episode and thought the same thing! Anyway, I thought this episode was pretty good until the end. Why didn't they beam everyone out? We don't even know who survived, although obviously Culluh does. I did like the backstory between the Trabe and Kaizon though, it's good to have some context.

I know this is nitpicky, but where does the music and applause come from when the Kaizon leaders walk into the conference room? Is there an audience? It's rather odd.

Re: VOY S2: Elogium

I can't remember the name of the episode, but in a later episode Kes suggests her father's name to Ensign WIldman for her child. The doctor gets offended that she never suggested that name to him and she starts rattling off other names - including that of her uncle. So obviously Ocampa women can have more than one child in their life. (Whether it's due to separate pregnancies or occasional multiple births, I don't know).

This episode kind of grosses me out, I don't want to hear the details of all her bodily processes. There sure isn't anything sexy about Ocampa mating, she's a sweaty mess the whole time! (I'm a women with three kids, and I'm pretty sure no one wants to hear all the details of my bodily changes during puberty or pregnancy). As someone else also mentioned, theres also no discussion about whether she and Neelix are even physically able to have a child or if there would be interspecies complications. Very irritating episode altogether.

Re: VOY S1: Emanations

Doesn't anyone on that planet ever die accidentally? Or all alone, where their body wouldn't be found for a while? It doesn't make sense that they're so shocked that their bodies decompose after they die.

Re: VOY S5: Think Tank

I actually rather enjoyed this episode. However, one thing bothers me. If Curros could monitor what was happening on Voyager and even project his image onto it, why didn't he know that Janeway and the Hazari were collaborating? Weren't they paying attention?
