Re: VOY S6: Blink of an Eye

I really like this episode, it's based on a great premise.

An interesting comparison is the novel "Spin" by Robert Charles Wilson, based on a similar idea. I highly recommend it.

Re: VOY S6: Fair Haven

If I had a holodeck, I would not hang out in a crappy simulation of an Irish village, especially if I wasn't allowed to get drucking funk on real alcohol in the pub. I's just so incredibly lame.

Re: VOY S5: 11:59

Well, call me boring, but when i tune in to Star Trek: Voyager i expect a) a science fiction show b) about Voyager and it's crew. This was neither. Now, I don't mind being surprised by something great, but this was just bland. I guess it's a matter of taste, I also hate mirror universe episodes and Voyager's incessant use of the reset button. This episode just hit reset before it even started.

I also find it something of a stretch that Janeway's great great whatever grandmother was also her identical twin.

Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

In the Star Trek universe, where you can sit down in a waiting room (or in a wormhole) and have a face to face conversation with your gods, it might make sense to take a leap of faith.

That is however not the case in our real universe, where religion has spectacularly failed to produce cures for anything. So this episode might make an interesting point in a magical fantasy world, but in our real world I guess the writers of this episode are just enemies of reason.

The theme of finding what you expect to find, on the other hand, is very relevant (especially in science), and reasonably well handled in this episode.
