    So here we are, at the beginning of the end. Acensia has a plan to invade the Federation, and the gang must hatch a complicated, multi-part plan to defeat her, which includes a "brain team" (Zero, Maj'el, Rokk-Takk, and Wesely) on the ship to do calculation, and a "body team" (Dal, Gwyn, Jankom Pog, and Murf) on the surface, to input the data. While this is all happening, Chakotay captains the Protostar with Holo-Janeway's help, while real Janeway relies upon her crew on Voyager. The episode ends with Acensia defeated and the season seemingly solved - only to have the Loom appear en masse, threatening to unwind all of reality.

    It's all great, save for one issue: Acensia has been a caricature - a one-note villain who never shows any hint of deeper motivation other than pure evil. Clearly she's not just that, given her younger version isn't like her. Yet we never get a hint of nuance here. Fine for a kids show, I guess, but The Diviner was so, so much more in Season 1 than she is here.

    Also, it was a nice moment near the end when all the other Vau N'Akat gave their strength (or whatever it was) to help her defeat Acensia, but I was left wondering how it happened. Like, they all just appeared out of nowhere. Made emotional sense, but not really logical sense within the plot.

    Still, a great episode, with a great climax to an entire season of plot arc. Only wait, there's one more!
