Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part II

I found Janeway's temporary "sacrifice" in the end of this episode too weak.

The way tortured Annorax's dilemma was fleshed out (the best part of this story in my opinion), I rather expected him to beat whatever plot his enemies had hatched, but in a moment of clarity (perhaps aided by Chakotay?) realize that the only true way out of this was one final "incursion" targeted against the true thorn on his timeline: His own ship.

This would have been in keeping with him and his crew being villains of circumstance, not ethic, and it would have cemented the plot with a final stroke of real-life gray (beautiful glimpses of which we saw on both captains in the two-parter) instead of the black-and-white silliness it had to force on us.

In the end, my objection with this story arc was that it showed us signs of how good drama it could be, and then just gave up on it.
