Re: VOY S4: Scientific Method

"I cheered the destruction [of] the bad guys' ship because I didn't like their smugness and wanted to see them get their just desserts."

Actually, it's "just deserts," as in what one deserves.

Re: VOY S2: Persistence of Vision

Oh, the exquisite irony of Neelix (even if it wasn't really Neelix) telling another character, "You're becoming annoying."

Crewman Tal Celes should have been addressed as "Crewman Tal," not "Crewman Celes."

Re: VOY S3: Coda

I think in this episode Garrett Wang showed just how poor an actor he is. During his eulogy for Janeway, he's supposed to become emotional and unable to continue, but there was no indication of that in his performance, or any indication that he actually felt anything for Janeway.

The crewman who sounded the bosun's whistle was in Starfleet headquarters with Barclay and Admiral Paris in the final episode when they became aware of the Borg "transwarp aperture."

Re: VOY S2: Maneuvers

After the Kazon steal the transporter thing and beam off the ship, they somehow configure the transporters to longer work. So the V'ger crew can't beam the thing back. Leaving aside the issue of how the Kazon, who were pretty much ignorant of transporter technology, could accomplish this, why didn't the crew use the transporter in a shuttlecraft?

Re: VOY S6: Survival Instinct

I'm surprised no one on the ship thought, "WTF is a Bajoran who's not a member of Voyager's crew doing in the Delta Quadrant?"

"And I didn't buy the romance as presented, expect for Janeways' torn expression as she kisses a man who isn't Mark and of course 'delete the wife' made me laugh!"

Here's an idea: If after six years of Delta Quadrant chastity Janeway decides she's going to boink a hologram, why not create a holographic Mark?

Re: VOY S6: Riddles

I hated this episode. Why? Because Neelix -- hands-down, the most annoying character in any incarnation of Star Trek -- figured prominently in it.

One gets the sense that had Damaged Tuvok not decided to become a pastry chef, the Voyager crew would never have learned the Ba'Neth cloaking frequency. If it was something that could be represented graphically, why didn't they just give Tuvok a pencil (or the twenty-fouth-century equivalent) and a pad of paper?

Re: VOY S6: Ashes to Ashes

I don't consider the introduction of a character we've never before seen or heard of a break in continuity. There are like 150 beings (people, not all of them human) on that ship. Now, if the writers had said that a character whom we did hear about and see never existed, that would be a break in continuity.

"Actually, I was impressed by Jeri Ryan's physicality. She looked fierce."

I was interested to know to what degree, if any, Jeri Ryan did her own stunts. I was surprised that the Memory Alpha article on this episode said nothing about that.

Re: VOY S7: Shattered

@Loren

"Even in First Contact [the Borg's] own interference didn't end up working out."

Yes, it did. When the Enterprise is in the temporal wake, we see Earth's familiar land masses Borgified, and Data says the lifesigns on the planet are "9 billion -- all Borg." The Enterprise then emerged from the temporal wake at a point *before* the Borg succeeded in their plan, and this timeline "overwrote" the one in which the Borg had succeeded.

Re: VOY S7: Shattered

@Jammer

"I'd also like to know why people who don't move through the timelines disappear when they cross from one area of the ship to another. If they're not moving through time like Chakotay, then where are they going?"

They're not going anywhere. The time transition is being depicted from Chakotay's point of view, so when the two security guards "disappeared" in the turbolift, Chakotay moved into a new time fragment and the security guards remained behind in the time fragment they were already in.

Re: VOY S6: Life Line

@Chris

"It is odd, as Jared noted, that Troi can't tell the real Zimmerman from the Doctor, especially since in dialogue not five minutes later, not sensing emotion is the reason she gives for being able to tell that Haley isn't a person."

Also, you'd think Troi would be smart enough to realize that the one wearing the Starfleet uniform -- even if it is last year's model -- is the hologram.

I thought it would have been cool if the Doctor returned to Voyager with news of the new uniform and the crew started wearing it.

Re: VOY S6: Fury

@Jammer

"Why didn't [Kes] simply travel back in time and prevent herself from leaving her homeworld rather than messing with Voyager?"

Maybe she can travel only in time and not in space -- in Voyager's present day, she traveled back in time while touching the warp core, and when she arrived in the past (conveniently, no one was looking at the warp core at the time) she was still touching the warp core. Though you'd think that for Old Kes, traveling in space would be easier than traveling in time.

Re: VOY S7: Nightingale

@Chris Knight

"Besides, everyone agrees that Harry's character didn't develop much (if at all) in seven years. Even if there was an opening he could have been promoted into, Janeway might well have decided that he wasn't ready."

Which is at odds with Janeway's out-of-nowhere remark in season 2's "Twisted" about how Harry has really impressed her and has far exceeded her expectations.

Re: VOY S4: Scorpion, Part II

@OpenEye

"How can Seven have a hearable voice in a decompressed cargo bay?"

For that matter, how can she breathe or not freeze to death? In First Contact, Picard says that the Borg "cannot exist without their organic components." I wondered how the Borg working on the deflector dish (in FC) were able to survive in the vacuum of space.

I also agree with Skavvy that it was lame that the Borg didn't come after Voyager after the events of this episode.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

@Jammer's review

"Then in the fifth act, the show does a complete 180 when Doc finds a miracle cure and the story abruptly shifts focus to the morality question of killing Tuvix to save Tuvok and Neelix when Tuvix passionately expresses a desire to remain "joined." This part of the show is especially interesting, but the execution doesn't hold up very well."

"Execution" might not have been the best word, given the context.
