Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

So many wonderful comments above; at least this episode sparked excellent discussion.

I won't go into the big questions, but instead a small one: the scene where Harry and B'elanna have just beamed Kes & Neelix back and are confronting the magistrate came across as outrageously confrontational and completely unlike any behaviour we've seen in similar past situations. Kes screwed up and got hurt (really, couldn't the monks have a little rope-barrier in front of the certain-death machine)? Harry & B'elanna had no information yet on her condition, they had no way of knowing that the Doctor would need more information about the energy field, but they flew right off the handle and practically threatened the magistrate with military action if they couldn't start studies immediately.

It was lousy writing - it could have made sense after Kes' condition had puzzled the Doctor, but absolutely not here. And even without that, I could almost stretch enough to accept that Torres would react so belligerently, but not Kim.

Re: VOY S2: Basics, Part I

Nice point, Lufferov, missed that!

I'd add one more silliness - I know ST:Voyager is trying to avoid being too dark, but I am sure that if Kazon were boarding a mid-battle Voyager through the shuttle bay as they did here, there would be massive casualties on both sides before Kazon made it to the bridge. All those armed Starfleet and Maquis types would be fighting - yet here the Kazon made it to the bridge in ... perhaps a minute? Less, I think. Half of the (anonymous, completely irrelevant) crew should surely have died in the fighting. Yes, power was out, things had gone badly in a flash, but... these people aren't supposed to be civilians, and they had no reason to expect mercy from the Kazon. I feel they would have gone down fighting, even after hope was gone.
