Re: VOY S5: Bride of Chaotica!

@skeptical Yes! I noticed that too. That was something I found fun about the episode, that it was parodying not only old sci fi like Flash Gordon, but referencing and poking fun at itself. In addition to the things you mention:

When Paris teaches Janeway about the rules and terminology of the Captain Proton Universe, and she rolls her eyes, it feels like they are also both poking fun at the Star Trek universe rules and terminology, which let's face it, is just as silly and made up.

When they discover whatshername dead, which isn't supposed to happen, it could have been a reference to the death of Tasha on TNG, which also felt wrong.

@Don Lee I noticed it too. Seven as Queen Arachnea would have been fun. But then we wouldn't have had her priceless "it's lonely at the top" line, another reference to the "real" universe.

Re: VOY S3: Scorpion, Part I

It feels more ruthless and cold-hearted, but I'm not sure that telling the doctor they'll erase his program if things go wrong is really that different from sending other crew members into extremely dangerous situations where the likelihood of survival is slim to none. It would have been nice though, if instead of threatening to erase him, they just threatened to restore him to an earlier version that didn't contain the information about the weapon. Of course that would have been a lot less dramatic :-)

Re: VOY S3: The Swarm

It would also help if the doctor didn't immediately recontaminate himself by touching everything.
