Re: VOY S6: One Small Step

Wow, 35 comments over a span of 8 years and not ONE person - not even Jammer - failed to mention the best part of this episode - zero-gravity! This is possibly the only(?) Voyager episode (and a rare occurrence in the Trek world in general), where it actually _feels_ like they're in space. Floating objects. Seven walking in a proper space suit with magnetic boots (which is very well depicted), Kelly actually _floating_ .. I can't remember the last time I saw a Trek episode where zero-g was shown in a spaceship.

It always made me wonder - how is it that we've seen all sorts of ship failures - life support, ship-wide power failures, to near-total destruction.. yet.. the inertial dampeners *always* works? I mean FFS, the number of times they've re-routed power from even life support, you'd think they could do without the dampeners for just a bit? But "One Small Step" finally delivers a bit of realism that I felt was sorely lacking in Trek. Kudos to the Voyager team for pulling off this episode.

My rating: 4 stars (-1 for Chakotay's out-of-character behaviour. Seriously, what were they thinking?!)
